Book Description

If it's just you and me, together, for the rest of our lives - no-one else to mess things up... could you ever love me?

Peter loves Vanessa. He loves her a lot and is looking forward to starting a nice life with her, and only her. No one else to get in the way and mess up their beautiful relationship. He'll do anything for her. Absolutely anything to make her happy. Anything to see that beautiful smile of hers. Anything to live happily ever after with her.
The only problem is - Vanessa doesn't know Peter and, more importantly, understand why she is cuffed to the dining room table.

Told through the eyes of the two people living the story, follow Peter as he keeps Vanessa prisoner hoping that she will fall in love with him and follow Vanessa as she desperately looks for a way out of this hell.

***NEW TO KINDLE IN 2011 - THE PREQUEL TO "HAPPY EVER AFTER" - 'G.S.O.H ESSENTIAL' - LEARN WHERE THE STORY STARTED***

5.0 out of 5 stars Gave me the chills.....CREEPY! March 4, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This story follows a seriously twisted man who is infatuated with a woman that he doesn't really know. What follows is a tale told to us often through his point of view and occasionally from hers. This was a great story that has stuck with me even though I finished it over a month ago. The author does a great job making you feel the captives emotions of anguish, despair, hope, and finally her decent into madness. I was left feeling that just a little bit of the darkness that takes place in the story had seeped into my world. Great story that I could see being turned into a dark and creepy serial killer/stalker movie. Even though I originally got this as a free download, I will gladly pay to download the others by this same author.

4.0 out of 5 stars Creepy December 11, 2011
By MoonPye
Format:Kindle Edition
Love the two person perspective. The book goes back and forth between Peter's and Vanessa's thought processes. Definitely a creepy concept without being overly gory. If you like horror that's more intellectual rather than slasher, you'll like this. Great twist at the end yet you're still left wondering... I think we need Matt to write a sequel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful in a creepy way June 3, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A rare treat to have a book that is so well written where you get into the mind of both the victim and the captor. You see Peter and his delusions in contrast to Vanessa and her will to survive. Very fast-paced with turns that you don't expect but have huge impact, I read it in one afternoon!
You really have to read this book to appreciate the beauty of it, the subtly of it, the impact that it has.
This is one book I will be reading again!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sick,Twisted, and Beautifully Haunting! May 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Where has this book been all my life?? Its exactly what I have been searching for and I couldn't be more happy about it. After reading the first couple pages on my kindle I instantly fell in love and couldn't put it down. The story line is very dark but some how beautiful in its own sick way. which is amazing! Everything that happened within the story will keep you on the edge and wanting more and more!!! I also just purchased A Fresh Start cant wait to continue the rest of the trilogy!!!! yay!!

4.0 out of 5 stars so good May 11, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm just going to leave a pretty quick to the point review about this book...... I absolutely loved it!!! From the first sentence I was hooked and didn't put it down until I was finished! I just downloaded the 2nd book but sadly I can't start it till tomorrow and I can hardly wait!! Now I will say this though I would have given 5 stars but the lack of editing drove me a little crazy thankfully the story was great so I could over look that one little issue

5.0 out of 5 stars Twisted story, but couldn't put it down! December 14, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This story is like nothing I've ever read before. Definitely dark and twisted, but in the most wonderful way! It was a very refreshing read with a very atypical open ending. This type of story isn't for everyone, so if you make it to the end, be prepared to buy the next installment!

Biography
MATT SHAW is the published author of over 50 stories.

An extremely prolific writer, Matt Shaw is continually writing as well as keeping up to date with his readers via his (some might say) crazy Author Page on Facebook.
