Wrong Side of Heaven, an all new Forbidden and Emotional Romance is Available NOW!!
Some just talked to me.
They all had their vices.
I’m trailer trash in the slums of Carillon.
Until I met him, the mysterious neighbor who speaks through handwritten notes. He never shows his face, only comes and goes late at night, and I’m drawn to him like a moth to a flame.
I shouldn’t want him.
I don’t need him.
But when I close my eyes, he’s all I see.
He’s my addiction. The secret I keep close to my heart.
But sometimes things aren’t what they seem, and secrets don’t stay secrets forever.
And together, we’re just two lost souls on the wrong side of heaven.

Living in this trailer, Winnie tries to just get through day after day. Tries to forget about the touching, watching and fearing every single night. But then she spots the neighbor next door and can’t seem to forget him. She finds herself keeping an eye out for him. He’s her secret. But sometimes things aren’t what they seem.
“The sooner Jasper realizes he can’t fix me, the sooner he’ll walk away. He’ll give up on me like everyone else has. And then I’ll tuck all his good qualities into my memory box, throw away the bad ones, and move on – alone.”
Whoa! I don’t know what to say except at the end of this story I had chills. I wasn’t expecting a love triangle going into this duet and I actually got a little giddy. Winnie has had a life that was rough beyond words. Stuck with an evil “step-parent” and neglected, she really is just trying to survive until she turns 18 and can strike out on her own. But her life seems like nothing but one giant set back. She doesn’t feel safe in her “home” and every time she tries to get ahead, some parasite just sucks away every little bit of good she tries to do. I thought when she met Jasper that he would be perfect for her since he cares about her and seems to want to help and protect her. But Winnie has some demons and trust issues. Then there’s a mysterious neighbor that somehow calls out to her even though she’s never seen his face. She just feels there’s something between them. During this dark, tragic book, I felt frustration, sadness, hope and even wished for some justice. My emotions were all over the place. But most of all, I just NEED MORE and can’t wait to see what’s in store for Winnie and Jasper!
I love being surprised by Gia Riley’s stories. Whenever I start one there seems to be a twist I wasn’t expecting and I end up with so much more by the end. She is now a must read author for me.
I’ve become a prisoner in my own body, held captive by my thoughts. Without a TV, there’s not much to do besides write, draw, and think. When I run out of paper, I get antsy, and I talk to Dad, praying he’s watching over me. Because, no matter how hard I try to block out the noise, the inside of my brain feels like a cluttered junk drawer full of odds and ends that don’t matter. A bunch of trash that’s stuck in a small space with no purpose.
Sometimes, the voices are so loud, I pace in circles until the ratty carpet fibers stop laughing at me. If I don’t, I’ll end up in the bathroom with the blade against my thigh. On days when I can’t get the chatter to stop, I run the smooth metal over my skin and watch the blood seep out.
Blood—the lifeline that unites a family.
All my family is dead or gone.
God, I hate the sight of blood. The smell. The consistency. The way it smears and stains everything it touches. But, once the blade touches my skin, I forget about Tess and how little I have. Suddenly, that little cut is all I can think about, and I love the way it silences the screaming inside my head.
For those few seconds of peace, I forget that Dad’s not coming back, that Trey is gone, and how Tess isn’t ever going to be the mother I need her to be. I’m no longer lonely and afraid. I’m the girl who looks in the mirror and likes what she sees.
I am me. Nobody else.
