A Dark, Twisted, and Steamy Romantic Suspense

RELEASING on MAY 17, 2018

I was young, innocent, and looking to start my career in psychology. However, it turned out I was in the wrong class, with the wrong professor, at the wrong time. One decision to become an apprentice changed my entire life.

After being left with nothing, including my true identity, money, family, and friends, I was evicted from my apartment. I knew I’d have to run and hide while struggling with starvation, but then a shady job offer became an appealing option in the midst of my desperation. 

I was fully aware of the risks involved, but I’m well versed in reading people and assuming their intentions. Therefore, I was confident I wouldn’t end up being that woman who ran into a trap that was decorated with luxurious accommodations and high-class amenities. I also wasn’t the type to reach for bait disguised as a gorgeous man with lust pooling in his eyes.

As it turns out, though … I was wrong about everything—almost everything. 

I fell into the rabbit hole where nothing was as it seemed from the outside, and I had no clue I was the puppeteer of it all. 


wow just wow!!

i have read quite a few books by shari j. ryan where she has lead me down the rom com path, the heartwrenching road and a journey into a little bit of family history. darkest perception was a whole new ball game and i absolutely loved it.

this book to me put shari j. ryan on another level all together in terms of story telling. axel and harley’s story continuously evolves and the twists and turns keep you gripping your kindle tightly because you never know where shari is going to take you next.

if you like a story that keeps you guessing, thinking and trying to figure out what will happen next, darkest perception is the book for you.” – kelly, early reader
