EXCERPT 
 
Britt freaks out
Britt and Gabriel are waiting for me in his office so we can start our meeting. After my interaction with Wolfe, I’m seething and frustrated. All I want to do is jump into the cage and beat the fuck out of something, release this shit building up inside. Confusing new emotions like jealousy are dueling with my usual focused, raw fury.
The dark, hollow place in my chest isn’t equipped for this. I fight, I fuck, I exist. Nothing more, nothing less.
Furious, I walk over to Gabriel’s office and shove open the door. It bangs against the wall with a loud crack, causing Gabriel to frown and Britt to cry out. Just like that, she drops to the floor, curling into a ball and covering her head with her hands.
Gabriel leaps to his feet, hurrying around his desk to crouch next to a huddling, quivering Britt. Stunned, I stand at the door frozen, unsure what is going on or what I should do.
Meu filha! Britt! What is happening?” Gabriel’s voice hitches as he tries to pull Britt out from under his desk. His head whips around to face me. “Killer! ¡Venha aqui e ayudar!” (Get over here and help..)
I cross the space in two quick steps, approaching Gabriel’s desk from the opposite side. Britt’s tiny frame is tucked into a tight ball, her knees pulled to her chest, head ducked, and arms curled protectively over her head.
Protecting her from what?
“Britt,” I say in as composed of a voice as I can manage, which at this moment, isn’t saying much. Not a lot freaks me out, but right now, watching Britt fall to pieces, has me struggling to keep calm. “Please, come out.”
Britt is quietly sobbing, her body shuddering in fear. Watching her in such obvious distress sends a stabbing pain through my chest. Not sure this is the best thing for her, but not knowing what else to do, I crawl under the desk. Being as large as I am, I can only get my head and shoulders in next to her.
Gabriel slides into nervous, staccato Portuguese. “I will leave you to take care of her. Let me know when she’s feeling better and I will return.” He stands and leaves the room, gently closing the door behind him.
He left me with her?
What the fuck am I supposed to do? At a loss, I do the only thing that comes to mind. It worked to relax her before, so why not? I gather her tiny, trembling body up in my arms, and hold her. Britt immediately unwinds her arms, clutching me tight, burying her face into my shirt, her tears dampening the fabric.
On the floor in my trainer’s office, lying half under a desk, a tiny shard of my black soul becomes human again.

REVIEW

This book was an emotional read that tugged at my heart every step of the way. The beginning shook me to my core, but it was as Britt and Keller picked up the pieces of what was left of their lives that really broke me.

Taking completely different paths on the way to healing, when fate brought them back together I had to wonder if the past would be too much for them to bear, would it tear them apart, opening up old wounds, or would it bring them closer.

Britt was a sweet character that I just couldn’t help loving. Traumatized by everything that she’d been through, she tried her best to hide her vulnerabilities, and I loved how she stood up to her mother, determined to move forward. Keller was such a lost, misunderstood soul. (Just as a quick side note: Robert Simmons came to life as Keller the entire time I read this story, and I wasn’t complaining one bit J ) Even with his tough exterior I could see that he was holding so much emotion inside, and only someone who had their own demons would be able to break down his walls.

This book took another disturbing turn in the latter half of the story adding to the intensity of this read. I won’t go into more details to avoid spoilers, but my heart was in my throat the entire time.

It was a great read.
