Blurb: College sophomore Alexander Strauss has one rule: no messing around with straight guys. Especially not his mouth-watering roommate, Shannon. When their ride share drives off the side of a mountain, the two young men find themselves deep in an uninhabited forest searching for their missing friend. Wandering the famously cursed grounds of Dudleytown, Alex figures something truly unholy must be at play, because only insanity could tempt him to break his cardinal rule.

Review: A fantastic Halloween read. Alex, Shannon and Ricky are car-sharing their way to Goshen when Ricky declares he knows a short cut… and their troubles begin.
This is a really great piece of writing, I loved everything about it; the characters were cool, the setting perfect and creepy, the story-line great and the suspense holds you by the hair on the back of your neck.
God. There’s so much I want to rave about, but I can’t without giving spoilers away… aarrrggg. So what can I tell you about… well, I can tell you that Alex seems to have a film for any setting and is quite descriptive and it’s quite eerie to have horror films mentioned and you can picture it perfectly and imagine being in the same situation and the tingles just hit your spine. Alex also seems to be quite level-headed (except about film descriptions) and keeps his cool in what has to be quite a scary situation. Shannon seems to be more of a take action type of guy but he will ask for input from Alex and will also protect him and Ricky. Well, let’s just say he really should have stayed on the main roads.
There are some hot scenes between Alex and Shannon even in the midst of spine-tingling suspense and it’s great when they sort out their misunderstanding. I loved how they worked well together and they made a great team.
I am going to recommend this to those who like thrillers, suspense, escaped convicts, a bit of danger, tingles down your spine, a bit of hot lovin’ and a great story.
