“John Doe” was just another patient. A criminal.
As a prison nurse, I knew the rules: do my job, don’t get involved, and never let a prisoner get under my skin.
I broke all three.
My passion, my obsession, my addiction. I risked my entire life so we could be together.
I thought helping him escape from prison would be the hard part.
It turns out when you fall in love with a villain, you also turn into one.
Elsie’s Rating – ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Tessa is a prison nurse and a wife with no way of escaping an abusive husband. Gracin, a felon, is serving a long prison term. He knows what abuse looks like and he knows Tessa is suffering at the hands of her husband. A prison break puts Tessa in Gracin’s path and that just may be the road to salvation for them both.
Toxic is a dark romance. Author Nicole Blanchard is a wonderful writer and she knows just how to ramp up the suspense and get your heart racing. You’re always wondering what’s going to happen next. This story draws you in from the start and has non-stop action from beginning to end. Gracin is definitely a flawed hero and far from perfect. The romance is just as hot as it is forbidden. This well-written book is one you won’t forget anytime soon.
Nicole Blanchard has a few books in audio form and I’m hoping she adds this book to the list.
This book was gifted to me in exchange for an unbiased review!
