SynopsisCharlie - I’m shadowed by sins; mine and the ones passed on to me. The only light comes in the way of him. He wants to fix me, but he can’t fix something so lost and broken. I'm completely undeserving and secretly unwilling. But how do I turn away the one person my body and soul soars for, the one thing that makes me forget the fear, the loss and the guilt? How do I stop the primal need which we are addicted to?
Nate - She is a stranger amongst the world, a captive behind her smiles and lies which shelters the truth. But I know her, we are caged together with the demons and guilt, yet my love is stronger against all our loss and I want to help her heal, to set her free. Under her cloak still lies my scared kitten, feral to her soul because of what he took from both of us. If it’s the last thing I do, I will help her roar like the tiger I know her to be, even if it means setting her free from me.
Caged by their demons and primal need, will their love be strong enough to set them free?

My Review: 4 1/2 stars
Be prepared with tissues and get comfortable, I'm betting you won't want to put this down either. This was such a heartbreaking, very dark story of what people do to each other and the long lasting effects it has on those who are made to suffer. I was stunned at the abuse that Charlie and Nate suffered as children together. The depravity of what they suffered through, only to be torn from the love they had for each other was simply devastating. I was glad that Nate found Charlie later in life and they had a second chance to feel the connection they always had. It may not have been exactly a great reunion, but it was a start for them, a step in the right direction. I was happy that Nate didn't give up, he wasn't going to let Charlie slip away again. Not that it was easy, nothing worthwhile ever is. This was a really emotional read. It deals with some heavy subjects that Aria wrote about fantastically all while making you care so much for Charlie and Nate and what ultimately happens to them. I think Aria must have done some serious research or had tremendous insight into the subjects. I cried, I wanted to hurt people, and as much as I sometimes wanted to, I couldn't put this down. I had to know what happened next. And I'm glad that I did.

My name is Aria and I have three confessions: #1 No matter how much I try, I can't stop shopping at Typo or the local tattooist. I believe that would be how I would introduce myself at an anonymous club, right? #2 I write under another name but I'm not going to tell you ... don't beg, she will kill me if I tell. Ha! So I guess you could call me a genre whore. #3 My phone is my life line. I can't leave the house without it. If you want to get to know me, follow my social pages on facebook and twitter and my blog.
