The Space Between (The Book of Phoenix, #1) by Kristie Cook

 When Life Falls to Pieces, Answers Lie in the Space Between

After a month-long dance tour through Italy, 20-year-old Leni Drago returns to Georgia to care for her great-uncle, only to find him gone, the home they shared empty and any evidence he ever existed wiped out. All that’s left is a journal she can’t open.

Jeric Winters has been searching for a piece of his past for over a year, only to reach a dead-end in Georgia. When an urgent and magnetic pull draws him out of his hotel room, he comes face-to-face with the beautiful dancer who’s been haunting his dreams day and night.

Jeric’s one to stay away from—a bad-boy, hit-it-and-quit-it type—but Leni can’t escape the fervent feelings between them. As their own existences begin to crumble around them and shadowy forms that are more monsters than men attack, they realize there’s more to the connection between them than physical fascination.

To solve the riddle their lives have become, they must embark on a journey that requires them to face their pasts and release their true souls. And they must do it fast—dark ones from another world are closing in, intent on killing them. Permanently.

 4+ Love, Soul and Dyads Stars

"One soul, one being. We shared thoughts and feelings and even a body, and although it sounded awkward, I felt as though we lived the most natural, most perfect existence. Like we were beyond human, above the selfish and greedy self-centered ways of this world. We were about us and them. There was no me."

We essentially live alone. In a huge world, we claim as ours a small piece of land and there only a handful of people they recognise us. But what if there was half of our soul missing? If we were to meet it? Again and again. To survive cruelty, jealousy and our own misgivings? Is happiness ours to claim? Are we ever gonna be whole again?

"My soul was what mattered now. I did have one. We both did. And they were meant to be one. Our souls were two halves of one whole."
"Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies." - Aristotle

Jacquelena "Leni" Drago a twenty something dancer, unhappy and with unfulfilled dreams, always composed is performing her last dance recital. She knows she wants more of her life and her art but she is ruled by her mother's teachings. When she meets the man that her soul recognises, she will be plunged into a whole new world, altering the foundations of her existence and making her believe in claiming more from life.

“You are his light. He is your protector."

This man will fast become her whole world. How does fate always bring them together? Can she trust him, learn but not forget the past and make a brand new future?

And how do a small burning tattoo and a strange locked book fit in this new reality?

Jeremicah "Jeric" Winters this gorgeous male hides a scared and scarred man. The sexy, womanizer underwear model is a actually an endearing, protective, vulnerable man. And the fact that he is deaf, makes him so much more real.

A journey to Italy changes his life too, irrevocably. Inexplicably drawn to Leni, together they start realising that their whole existence is slowly erasing, they have mysterious ties to a couple that lived in 1989 and shadows are stalking them.

But all he needs is Leni.

“You’re the Coke to my Jack. For eight years, life’s been one bitter bottle of whiskey after another. One burning shot after shot. But then you come along. Life’s still harsh, but you make it sweeter. Easier to swallow.”  


Two people with hard lives, memories of a beautiful and haunting past and an explosive chemistry. Will they manage to fulfill their destiny or are they doomed to fail? 
Another story by Kristie Cook, story-teller extraordinaire! Rich and imaginative, emotional and haunting a story of lost souls, fate and power of love.

To heal, to live, to breathe and fight.

I can't wait for the next book... I NEED more Jeric!!! And Leni, but you know what I mean...
