    Summary

    Rey is an ex-journalism student who was forced to leave university and into prostitution after her parent’s crippling debt falls on her shoulders and the people they owe money to begin targetting her.

    In desperation, she takes a job at Crimson Lane, a high-end brothel in the city. On her first night, she is booked with the mysterious Kylo Ren, who comes with his own set of rules: No kissing, no touching, no eye contact and no questions.

    What was supposed to be one night of uncomplicated paid sex, turns into so much more as they work through the dark truths that have bought them to this place.

    This is an angsty, enemies to lovers story based on two people who are inextricably entwined by a shared past.

    Despite the gritty brothel setting, this is definitely not a "porn without plot", in fact, it's probably the opposite.

    There's a lot of layers to the characters and a story that takes time to tell, as well as a dose of mystery, angst and drama.

    I hope you enjoy it as much as I have writing it.

    Summary

    The universe hung on the edge of a pin. A single action -- a choice, a word, a breath -- could tilt it one way or another. The future of billions and billions hung on for a moment they didn’t know was coming, unsure of which way the pin would fall.

    But this time, a breath came first and the whole of existence shifted.

    --

    An AU where Kylo Ren wakes up in the throne room before Rey and she offers to stay with him in exchange for letting the Resistance go.
    He says yes.

    Summary

    After Crait, Rey retreats to Jakku to grapple with her past... and her unwelcome attraction to Kylo Ren.

    --

    Kylo Ren was a monster. A murderer. So why couldn’t she stop thinking about him?

    Rey was already a bad Jedi, so in the dark of the AT-AT that had sheltered her during her vulnerable years, she gave in to the allure of the fantasy. Kylo Ren’s tall frame and big hands, his dark hair and hungry eyes. His desperation as he’d said “Please.” The sheer size of him, combined with the peek at his vulnerabilities she’d gotten from this strange, antagonistic Force bond.

    As if she’d summoned him, his consciousness brushed against her own, dark and tempting.

    You hate me, he said in her mind.

    There wasn’t a word to encompass how she felt about him. Yes, she agreed, ignoring the twinge of guilt.

    Ben has made many mistakes in his life, and has the scars to prove it. 'Enlisting' a fifteen year old girl in his trek across the battered American South is not one of them- in fact, it's his best idea yet.

    Despite being held captive by an emotionally unstable giant, Rey feels confident in her inevitable escape.

    Soon, they both find they are ill-equipped to deal with their new companions.
