Path of Destruction
by Cara Dee
Release Date: March 16, 2017
The first time Adeline Ivey danced into my life, high on ecstasy instead of life, was at the party before the kickoff of our seventh tour. I spotted her out on the lawn, a gorgeous girl spinning around in circles with her arms wide and a big smile directed at the Los Angeles sky.
We shared an insane summer on the road, surrounded by sex, drugs, and rock n’ roll—a combination that could only end in disaster.
That was ten years ago. The world has forgotten Lincoln Hayes, rock god and guitarist in Path of Destruction. As the date of my parole hearing approaches, I’m nothing but a number in the system of the Michigan Department of Corrections. And as much as I want to forget the events of that summer and move on, the girl I can’t get out of my head is trying to make an encore appearance in my life.
It messed with me, having a fresh memory of Lincoln.
In the last decade, he’d become more and more a ghost. A twinge that tugged at me every now and then, or visited me when I slept. Now there was the crystal-clear image of his face and hardened features, his body in that navy blue, scrub-like prison uniform, and fuck-off attitude. He despised me.
“Where’s Abel?” Jesse asked quietly.
“Not home from school yet.” I walked over to him and rubbed his neck gently. “You look more and more like your father every day. You know that?”
He smiled faintly and closed his eyes. “I miss him.”
I refused to get emotional. In front of Jesse and his little brother, I had to remain strong.
About the Author
There aren’t many things better than picking up my Kindle and getting completely sucked into a whole new world—where words morph into images and characters’ moods suddenly reflect my own. Aside from good plot and writing, for me, it boils down to relatable characters.
As a writer, I’m not finished until the men and women in my books come to life, until I can see them as real people, until I can connect with them. Which means I write what I want to read: everyday heroes and heroines who have the same struggles we all do. They evolve, have flaws, make mistakes and amends, learn, and find the endings they fight for.
Those are the characters who take the readers on a journey away from work, laundry, grocery shopping, and to-do lists.
When I’m not writing, researching, or brainstorming, I’m either planning my next trip (never-ending bucket list!), reading, watching hockey, or spending time with family and friends.
