My family tried to break me. But, somehow, I made it out alive, even though the wounds from that survival are forever carved into my bones. Now, my only wish is for…normal. To know what it’s like to have friends, a job, a home.
The last thing I want is for my new roommate to see the scars I’m so desperate to keep hidden, especially not the ruggedly handsome man who steals my breath and sends my heart into overdrive.
But something tells me that Beckett has demons, too. I see it in the shadows haunting his gorgeous eyes and the way he looks at me with gentle understanding.
As our unlikely friendship becomes so much more, forces from my life slink out of the shadows. And we could both lose everything we’ve fought so hard for—down to our very last breaths…
4 1/2 Stars for this emotional story!
This story broke my heart! Addie ended up being so strong despite her childhood being full of abuse and terror. Beckett is a man that women dream of ... kind, caring and hot! But he carries secrets and terror of his own. The banter between the characters and the subject matter is very realistic. The twists and turns had me on the edge of my seat throughout the book. A great addition to the series and I can't wait for the next book.
Beckett ran from his home right after high school because he couldn't handle the guilt of feeling responsible for his sister's kidnapping. Years later, it's time for him to come home to be there for his family. After Addie escapes her childhood home, her cousin's boyfriend offers her his house that is just sitting empty ... as she tries to build a new life. Addie and Beckett end up being roommates till Beckett's house is built. It doesn't take long for these two broken souls to see that maybe they can mend together.
