A year and two months ago my life changed.
Before it, I was this happy go-lucky teen, ready to take on the world.
Change happens so fast.
Donât believe what everyone tells you; âTake your time,â âYou have a lifetime.â
Even though, I knew once I left high school my life would be different, I didnât expect it to be so drastic.
For years I told myself I wouldnât fall into the traps my classmates had.
Here I am turning 19 and I donât even know what I like anymore.
I used to be into horseback riding and slumber parties and now itâs all parties, drinking and smoking.
Just yesterday, I could barely get through class without the constant cravings.
Killing me slowly is the nicotine rush that swims through my veins, begging for more.
Love is a distant memory since all I love now is my next high and I just ditch that one for the next.
Maybe it was always supposed to be this way.
Not that I had a plan before, but I did have dreams.
Only my closest friends know that, though and theyâre all long gone.
People now see me as this party girl, looking for a good time and a place to hang out.
Quitting is too far away for me to reach to.
Really, I donât want to stop.
Stopping would mean feeling and Iâm not ready for it.
Time is running out and in my last breaths all I can think of my broken soul crumbling inside me.
Until now, it was a joke, an excuse to act my age and live without responsibilities.
Veering off the road was a mistake.
Willing myself to just die here already and end my torment was choice.
X marks the spot and it should be my grave that I lay in now.
Yet as the ambulance lights flash in the distance I know Iâll be saved and brought back into a black, heartless, dog eat dog world.

What Readers Have to Say...
"An absolutely heart wrenching read that shows us that at times no matter how much we hope, darkness will find its way to win. "
-Blogger's From Down Under for A Reliant Love
"So this book is the ultimate love story. I like how two ordinary people who is so different and still so alike in so many ways can overcome everything together."
-Angelica Berglund for For The Love of Hockey
"I never thought I would read a "zombie book", much less love one. The Last Legacy really surprised me. Even with the whole people-eating-people thing, it was a fantastic book"
-Melannie S for The Last Legacy
"I could not wait to start book two. If this book was as good as book one, then I knew I wouldn't be disappointed. It wasn't as good as book one...it was better. "
-Keely Retchloff for Finding Sam
"The powers, the love, the excitement, the drama kept me so enthralled. If you are looking for a GREAT series about true love and mythology, look no further... I wish I could rate 10 stars! Definitely recommend this whole series to all my book loving friends!"
-The Book Blog for A Curse Books Trilogy
"For the Love of Ash" by Taylor Lavati was a rare 5-star read for me. I honestly find many typical romances rather dull and predictable. This was not the case at all here; there was nothing average about the romance, overall storyline, and the long list of supporting characters."
-Summer's Book Blog for For The Love of Ash
"Wingless isn't what I would normally pick up and read, but thought I'd try it out and I am so glad I did. The characters and "worlds" she creates are done so well that you can actually picture them and feel like you are there right along with the characters."
-JLH for Wingless
