Jade Mathews is on the run. Running from an addiction that almost destroyed her, and a man who wants her dead.
Kyler James is a writer, a recluse locked in a prison of his own making.
When Jade and Kyler meet they find solace in one another and start to heal. Until Jade stumbles upon Kyler’s latest manuscript and is shocked to find that it is her story. One he couldn’t know. Jade fears she’s trusted the wrong person once again, and this time it may be her undoing.
Is the past destined to destroy them, or will they finally break free?
Kyler’s eyes softened around the edges. “Jade, your scars only make you more beautiful.”
“Oh, please.” I snorted. “This is not a scene from one of your books.” I pushed away from the counter and turned my back on Kyler. “My scars don’t make me beautiful. They make me hideous.”
“Don’t say that. Don’t ever say that again.” His voice was firm.
I grabbed at the fabric of my pants, rolling it between my fingers. I understood now. Kyler was no different from the others. Sure, his intentions may have been nobler, but he wanted what they all wanted. To control me. To make me obey.
I was steel. I was brick. I was iron. I wouldn’t crumble. “Or you’ll what?” My tone was low and deep, icy. “What will you do if I say it again?”
“I’ll convince you that you’re wrong.”
“And how will you do that?” He’ll hit me, kick me, punch me, burn me, cut me, starve me.
“I’ll tell you that you’re beautiful again and again.”
The words crashed into me like a powerful wave. “What?”
“I’ll say it over and over, as many times as you need, until you believe me.”
I was glass. I was ice. I was fragile. I was breaking. I was his.

My Review: 5 stars
What a fantastic book Amber wrote. I was sucked in, from the first page until the very end. I could totally relate to Jade and understand why she did the things that she did. I was so happy and proud of her for leaving the situation in the first place. To have found Kyler was a stroke of luck or fate giving them a second chance. I loved the way that Kyler treated Jade as she should be treated, and that he showed her slowly over time, that he valued and treasured her. When she reacts badly to something and leaves, she puts her self in danger making a stupid mistake. When it comes out who Kyler actually is, that part blew me away. I've got to say that Amber wrote a great story and I absolutely loved Kyler and Jade.
