From New York Times & USAToday bestselling author, Nicole Williams:
When he left for a twelve-month deployment, she knew it would feel like forever before they saw each other again. She didn’t realize how right she was.
When Lance Corporal Brecken Connolly gets taken as a POW, Camryn hopes for the best but steels herself for the worst. In the end, steel was what she needed to survive when he didn’t. She moves on the only way she knows how—gilding herself in more steel.
Years go by.
She builds a new life.
She leaves the old one behind.
Until one day, she sees the face of a ghost on the news. Brecken seems to have risen from the dead, but she knows she can’t perform the same miracle for herself. While Brecken was held in a torture camp for the past five years, she’s been trapped in her own kind of prison. One she can’t be freed from.
The man she mourned comes back to join the living, but the girl he wanted to spend his life with isn’t the same woman he comes back for. Brecken isn’t the same person either. The past five years have changed them both. While he’s determined to put the pieces back together, she’s resolved to let hers rot where they shattered.
Broken or not, Brecken wants her back. He’ll do anything to achieve that. Even if it means going against the warden of Camryn’s personal prison—her husband.

This book is amazing. I couldn’t believe everything that main character had deal with just to make it alive. God I hate crew. That guy was the devil himself. This book made me feel so many emotions. It’s definitely in my top 10 favorite books. I loved the main characters
AMAZING!! YOU NEED TO READ IT.
I read this a few months back and till this day I feel the characters deep in my heart❤️. You could say it’s a bit of a slow burn, but it’s all worth the wait and slowly turns into a huge plot.
5 incredibly tortured stars!!!
One of Nicole’s best yet! This book had me gripped from the very first chapter, heck, the first page. I found myself flipping to speed the story up and then slowing to a crawl to savor the raw, torturous parts. This book had everything I love…angst, secrets, heartache, characters with meaningful pasts, swoony and sexy moments. Brecken was perfect in every way and I fell in love with Keenan. Camryn and her situation were captured just right, giving the reader a glimpse into why she reacted and made the decisions she did. A truly strong heroine. What more can I say besides you need to read this book! Maybe stock up on some tissues or chocolate, first. You’re going to need it.
