Three months after his rescue from an abusive boyfriend, twenty-two-year-old Romy Myers has landed his first legitimate job�bussing tables at his friend's new coffee shop. The job has brought him some stability after years of abuse have left him feeling damaged and broken.

The last thing Romy wants is to fall for another guy who could potentially shatter him, but Brendan also wakes up a part of him he thought had been destroyed by violence�his heart.76,000 words

This is a lot about healing. It's triggery at times. Romy went through really awful things, and it's hard to read. But they heal each other. And Brendan is such an honest and loving character. A really solid man with a heart of gold. They're perfect together and their story is beautiful.
