Ten years old I fell in love Ten years was the price of that love Ten years later our world’s recollide
My brother Jonah was possessive when it came to the things he owned; this unfortunately included the people in his life. The forbidden love between his best friend and me was just that... forbidden. Our families were from different walks of life and as a sheriff’s daughter being with a Moore’s kid would never be tolerated. To my parents their son and Dalton Moore were on different paths and their friendship would end as soon as college began but it was my brother who had a craving for trouble. He was always looking for danger, committing petty crimes and getting away with it because Dalton would take the fall, blackening his already stained name. When Jonah found out we broke the rules by loving each other, his consequences impacted us all with immeasurable suffering. Betrayal comes with a debt and it would be paid by all of us. One with their heart, one with their mind and one would pay in blood.
not everyone believes they exist, but that’s because they have never met theirs.
How can someone who has never felt a connection so fierce, that you feel the power of it in every molecule of your being, believe such an thing exists?
How can you explain to them that the jolt that ignites every nerve ending in your body is like the sky crackling and exploding with lightening before it joins with the earth for the briefest yet most magnificent of moments, displaying the true force of nature’s power?
When that one person you were created with, comes into your life, you know without any doubt that they’re yours and you are theirs. It’s nature in its truest form. There is nothing more natural then falling in love with your soul mate.
True love Is like an out of body experience, you transcend before crashing back into your body seeing life through new eyes.
You don’t just find your soul mate; you reunite with them with intensity so powerful nothing can stop it. A love so potent you feel it in the atmosphere, and you see it in their aura.
Dalton Moore was my soul mate and I lived to love him.
He was in my every childhood memory.
Every dream I conjured.
He was every good decision I made...
But for him...
I was in his every childhood memory.
Every nightmare he slipped into.
I was the worst decision he ever made.

I just love Ker Dukey, do I really have to say anything other than that? Seriously, I don't even know what to write on Ker's reviews anymore because let's face it, I don't think I have ever read anything that she wrote that I didn't like. All my reviews probably sound repetitive because they go on and on about how AWESOME her stories are! Are there stories that are better than others? Yes. But there's not one that was bad, or not worth reading. I pretty much will read anything that has her name on it.
I have been waiting awhile for Ten to come out. Anytime I know I will be receiving one of her books, I try to wait as patiently as possible! Meaning, I check my emails probably twice a day to see if it was delivered!! What can I say? I'm hooked! So when I saw that Ten was sent to my kindle, I couldn't wait to dive right in!
I'm not sure if you heard, but prior to the release, Ker referred to Ten as being different from the other stories she's written. I would have to agree. If you've read some of her books, but thought they were too dark for you, I would recommend this story. I think the big difference would be that Ten isn't as dark as the Empathy or Facade Series. Those series were pretty dark, but that's what I liked about them! I felt that this story was missing a little something since I'm so used to what her "normal" books are like. I still enjoyed it, but I would have to say that the Empathy series is still my favorite one. Other than the darkness, Ten had everything else that I love from Ker Dukey. The story line was good and it still had the "WTH" moments and it was still pretty suspenseful! I enjoyed reading about Dalton and Alexandria's story. I felt bad for Dalton. All he wanted was a better life and yet he was still dragged into his families lifestyle. I also really liked Leon, my heart broke for him, and I'm really hoping we get to see more of him in an up coming story.
All in all, TEN is a great addition to my Ker Dukey library. Like I've mentioned before, if you like her stories, but would like something a little lighter, this would be it. I'm looking forward to continuing this series, and I can't wait to see what Six's story is going to be like! I have a feeling his is going to be good!! He seems like he would be one hot alpha male!

I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bed time stories with my sisters. I wanted to be an actress growing up so I could live many roles but I learned early on that my mind was too active... I would want to change the script.I would watch films and think of ways they could have improved the story if they took another direction so i thought it best that i tell my own.
My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made from light, some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling.
When I’m not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I’m a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister.
You can find me on Facebook where I love interacting with my readers.
