Heaven’s Torment Book 1
by Victoria Liiv
Psychological Women’s Fiction, Contemporary Romance
After falling out of the sky- quite literally- with an airplane, Amber goes through life simply surviving from week to week. Her traumatic experience keeps on haunting her day and night, but mostly at night, and it seems there’s no way out. Nothing left to try for. If life is only a torture, why keep on going?
The answer is simple: Adriaan.
The man has managed to get through her defences and keeps her hope alive. He’s the reason the get out of bed in the morning. He’s the reason to push through the terror encompassing her. He’s also her therapist. A new fear surfaces past the trauma: confessing her feelings for him.
Adriaan couldn’t possibly love her back. Not only because relationships between a therapist and their patient are not allowed, but also because she’s damaged.
Keeping her obsession secret draws Amber closer to Huub. He’s nice. He’s successful. He’s good in bed. But he’s not Adriaan.
Amber struggles through life, holding onto a small spark of hope and the love she keeps on running from.
All you need to know about Angels Around Us:
– written in first person present (have to note it since some people despise this)
– falling for the therapist (forbidden love)
– a slow burn romance
– a healing journey from panic attacks and trauma
– an emotional support dog Angel
– it is Amber’s emotional journey first and foremost and romance second. An emotional connection that grows over time. It is not a smutty romance

This book contains darker topics of life among which is living with trauma, anxiety, emotional abuse, self-harm, and abortion. If you are disturbed by any of that subject matter, then this book may not be for you.
