***Inspired by true events***
I can’t remember the last time I felt completely safe. Security seemed more like a luxury to me, reserved for those who were fortunate enough to have picture perfect childhoods. For those who didn’t bear the ugly scars that keep me bound in constant, debilitating fear. I’ve run from that fear my entire life. But when I met him, for once, I couldn’t run anymore.
He scared the hell out of me in a way that excited every fiber of my being. It wasn’t the tattoos or the piercings. It wasn’t the warmth that seemed to radiate from his frame and blanket me whenever he was near. It was just…him. The scary beautiful man that threatened to alter 23 years of routine and rituals, and make me face my crippling fear.
My name is Kami and I am constantly afraid. And the thing that scares me the most is the very thing I want.
This is the story of one woman’s very real struggle through a world against her, the people who hurt her, her real life demons and the people who showed her that every gray sky, no matter how dark, has a sun waiting to break through.
The blurb and the first part of this story had me hooked and i couldnt wait to read more, the traumatic life that Kami had lead her secrets and fears really touch me soul deep.
I have to say there did come a time while reading i found the story a little repetitive, the way in which Kami reacted and pushed Blaine away time after time it just fell alittle short for me.
Blaine for me was a dream, he was the true hero of this book. The way he was around Kami the support and love he showed her was beautiful. His letter to Kami towards the end really pulled the emotions out of me for the first time while reading this book, it was heart breaking the lengths he would go to to try and heal Kami.
Angel and Dom were great characters and such a huge support to Kami they had a true friendship.
Towards the middle of this book i found myself getting bored, the story did pick up and i liked the ending.
