SEEKING NIRVANA: (The dark evoke series book 1)
Publication Date: June 15, 2014

They say that old habits die hard, and twenty-seven year old, Kady Jenson, is about to discover how true that statement actually is. Waking up in the hospital with a complete stranger at her bedside should have caused panic and confusion, but for a reason unknown to her, Kady finds herself drawn and calmed by the presence of the rugged, devastatingly handsome man with the pleasant Irish brogue. 
It’s when she discovers that she has just woken from a four day coma, with a three year void in her memory, which spawns confusion and panic. Kady soon comes to realize that things change with time, and not only appearances. Not only is the sexual chemistry she once shared with her long-term boyfriend, now a long-ago memory, but Kady also begins to unconsciously fall back into unremembered habits, and with each day, the increasing sense of foreboding becomes increasingly harder to ignore. Left on her own when her boyfriend goes on a business trip, Kady seeks help from the Irish stranger as they go on a quest together, in a race against time, to piece the puzzle together. 

This is the first installment of The Dark Evoke Series, and is therefore NOT intended as a standalone novel.



I loved this AND dived right into next book ELUDING NIRVANA. Welll written and highly emotional read.
what would you do ? how would you feel ? waking up in hospital with a stranger beside you and you cant remember the last three years. Feeling like things just don't add up Kady looks around for information while her husband Liam is away but that brings back more questions than answers. The only constant in her life seems to be Walker and her feelings for her husbands employee. it takes a night out in a karaoke bar to start to bring Kady's memory back.

Title: Eluding Nirvana: The Dark Evoke Series (#2)
Author: V.L. Brock
Release Date: October 5th 2014

Synopsis of Eluding Nirvana:

***Due to the dark nature and content in this story, Eluding Nirvana is recommended to readers over the age of 18***

Three years lost; a body marred and a mission complete. 

Waking after an four day coma, Kady Jenson felt her life was crashing down around her. Three years of her memories were missing, and the compelling man at her side was not her years-long partner, but a stranger – a stranger who promised to help her recover what she had lost.

But how did Kady come to such a place?

What dark, mysterious events stole her past and threatened her future?

How did her lover become a stranger, and a stranger become so terribly important?

What happened to turn Kady’s orderly life into a terrifying nightmare which would leave her permanently marked, body and soul?

***This is the second instalment of The Dark Evoke Series, and is therefore not intended as a standalone***

Im not sure my words can describe this book very well. The book is beautiful and evil at the same time and deals with dark subjects like self harm and abuse. I loved the first book but the second filled in all the gaps for me. 

The prologue repeats the end of the last book where walker takes kady to mcgintys and sings the Jackson five song "i'll be there" which sets of a memory for Kady when she arrives home she hears Liam on the phone and all her memories come tumbling back.  

Chapter one begins two and a half years before the accident basically filling us in on the 3 year gap in Kady's memory. We learn friends are not always friends and blood might be thicker than water and its a hell of a roller coaster ride. 
4.5 STARS 

Author Bio:

Raised in a creative family, witnessing one another expressing themselves through creativity, albeit musically or through a form of literature, it was only a matter of time before my passion for devising characters and their unique stories in their own world, began to form and grow. From there the seed was sown and flourished into a young girls dream.

Throughout the years I have often toyed with the idea of pursuing this path, yet unknowing where to begin. There are so many routes in this day and age to help get from A to B, that the dream was both tangible and terrifying. So with that, and after a few months of kicking myself into gear thanks to a certain someone, I decided to self-publish, and that decision was most probably one of the best decisions I have ever made.

I am a mother of a 6 year old son who knows how to keep me on my toes, and married my high school sweetheart 6 years ago. I can't express how supportive and understanding both have been while pursuing this journey.

If I'm not writing I'm constantly thinking about writing and can be found either chasing my son around, with my nose in book or being creative in the kitchen.
