Bared Souls by Ellie Wade


Alma Weber
He told me that he'd destroy me. I knew he wasn't lying, and I loved him anyway.
I believed in love—in him.

I just wasn't prepared to carry the weight of his demons. I wanted forever with him, but life showed me love was temporary, and forever was a dream.

Despite everything that happened, even now, I wouldn't change any of it. For a love to have the capacity to destroy you, it has to be extraordinarily powerful—and that kind of love is impossible to walk away from.

Leo Harding
I warned her that I'd ruin her. I knew that I'd taint her innocence with my bad intentions.
I was weak. She was perfection. I was nothing.

The truth is that I loved her, and I selfishly wanted to hold on—to her, to the man she had made me, to the life we could have.

I wanted to dance with her in the light despite knowing that the darkness would find me anyway. Heartbreak was inevitable.

Yet I held on to the sliver of hope that I was wrong, that love really was enough.
Destiny isn't something I buy into, but she makes me want to believe.

"Hauntingly beautiful, Bared Souls is an emotionally driven and romantic love story. With each word, Ellie Wade captivated me and had me on the edge of my seat. The angst hits an epic level and my heart shattered into a thousand pieces while I held hope for Leo and Alma to find their HEA. I cannot recommend this book enough. It is beautiful, tragic, sweet, loving, and painstakingly perfect." ★★★★★ Best-Selling Author, Andrea Johnston
