Book Review & Giveaway: THE DARK INSIDE by Donna Galanti

Today I'm reviewing Donna Galanti's The Dark Inside, a series of short stories that are dark, seductive and incredibly disturbing ...just the way I like it.  Donna released The Dark Inside not too long ago and  the second I read it, I was immediately sucked into her wicked and imaginative mind.  Last year, I had the pleasure of reviewing  A HUMAN ELEMENT  and I was instantly a fan.  Galanti is an amazing descriptive writer who can easily create suspenseful tales that are page turners.  I love that about her.  There were so many times when I read these tales where I thought, Oh I wonder if she will create an entire novel on that tale.  Who knows?  According to Donna, she's planning a sequel to A HUMAN ELEMENT and THE DARK INSIDE is for fans like me who need a filler of her dark tales.  The book is available via Kindle for only $.99 so that's an insane bargain for such an awesome book.  See the book description below for more details:
ABOUT THE DARK INSIDE:  Heartbreak, danger, lust, and betrayal blaze to life in this collection of stories that reveal the dark places hidden within us. When what you most desire is on the line how far will you go to get it, and what will you give up?
- A young man desperate to leave a world that doesn’t accept him–and a father who hates him.
- A tormented man imprisoned as a science experiment experiences love for the first time.
- A secret agent gives in to his carnal desires and risks exposing the one secret he wants to keep.
- A college freshman betrayed by her lover takes matters into her own hands.
- A young girl is determined not to suffer at the hands of her molester anymore.
- A sadistic leader who thrives on mind control leads his people into a new life.
- A teen seeks escape from his abusive foster father and faces a life-or-death situation to survive.

They must either fight the dark inside or embrace it.  Which will they choose?
