A sexy Sci-fi/Thriller
Marty Cortez is living a normal life when he discovers he's actually living a lie. There's a whole lot of bad about to descend on the Earth, and he's right at the center of the storm.
Surrounded by old lovers, friends, and enemies, Marty's got to work fast to regain his memories and deal with Nik Drakan, the alien hiding out in Marty's head. It'd be a whole lot easier if people didn't keep trying to kill him - or seduce him.
Marty doesn't know who he can trust and Nik won't stop talking... but listening to him is going to cost Marty everything he's got.
Antonio closed his eyes and fought off the nausea. He prayed to be somewhere else, anywhere else. Maybe he was imagining the whole thing.
Too many shots... I'll open my eyes and I'll probably find myself with my head in the toilet.
He took several deep breaths, deciding that what he told himself would be true as soon as he opened his eyes.
He counted backward from ten in his mind. When he reached four, his racing heart slowed. He felt the vibrations of the music once again. He was sure that it was okay to open his eyes now. Deciding that it would be water for the rest of the night, he took another deep breath and opened them.
Antonio choked on the rancid air, as he found himself standing before the pale gray face of a monster.
His terrified eyes traced the line of tiny metal spikes protruding across the center of the monster's forehead and around his jawline. He looked into the creature's eyes. A veil of frost covered them. The gray irises and black pupils were no longer noticeable.
This isn't real.
