As a prison nurse, I knew the rules: do my job, don’t get involved, and never let a prisoner get under my skin.
I broke all three.
My passion, my obsession, my addiction. I risked my entire life so we could be together.
I thought helping him escape from prison would be the hard part.
It turns out when you fall in love with a villain, you also turn into one.

Nicole Blanchard is an excellent storyteller. Once again she has blown me away with her brilliant writing and storyline. I felt some many emotions while reading Toxic. I cried for and with Tessa. I was angry for her. I understood how Tessa could do some of the things she did to survive and felt empathy for her as well. In my opinion, it takes an amazing and remarkable writer to create a story where the readers can relate and believe in the characters and storyline. I adore this story and recommend this to others.
Overall Story - 5 Strong Stars
