Can a guilty conscience keep wounds from healing?

Fine arts major, Candace Parker, grew up with a mother who thinks image is everything, and her daughter’s perfection will never be good enough. About to graduate college and pursue her dreams of becoming a professional ballerina, Candace decides it’s time to let go and have a little fun. But fun is short-lived when a brutal attack leaves her completely shattered.

The memories that consume and torment Candace are starting to destroy her when she meets Ryan Campbell, a successful bar owner. He feels instantly connected and tries to show her that hope is worth fighting for. But is Ryan harboring his own demons? As walls slowly begin to chip away, the secrets that are held within start to become painful burdens.

At what point do secrets become lies?

(17+) This book contains mature subject matter that is not suitable for those under the age of 17.  


Fading was the most emotional roller-coaster I have ever been on.  It was very dark and the subject matter took me to places that felt so real.  I thought that the author really captured the feeling of what it's like when something goes wrong and you are vulnerable to attack.  I could feel all the emotions that Candace was going through and how she felt like she was "fading away" from life.  

Candace turns to her good friends Jase and Mark for support throughout this difficult time instead of reaching out to the girl that is supposed to be her best friend.  This part confused me.  I wasn't really sure why she felt like she couldn't tell her best friend.  Or report the attack to the authorities.  There were many things that I thought could have been done a little better but all in all it's a very good book with great story lines.
