At twenty-three, I’m left with a decision. The outcome could be life or death.
Trent hit me once, and I cried. Then he hit me again. And again. After a while, I got used to it, as I slept on the floor beside his bed, night after night.
Everyone told me to leave him, but I can’t. He won’t let me.
The moment I wanted to give up on myself and any form of hope, Kemper—a tall, sexy Marine just home from Afghanistan walked into my bar. With one look in his eyes, I saw pain that mirrored my own.
At first, I thought maybe he would be my prince charming, riding in to save me, but all it took was one tragedy for me to remember…fairy tales don’t exist in real life.

Review by Elaine
This is my first book by this author and I am blown away. I can relate to this story. I was in the navy and was married to an abuser. Shari made you feel everything Daphne felt, she takes you through the ups and downs. The joy and fear. I couldn’t put it down. I bought it today and had to read. If reading about abuse triggers a bad reaction then this isn’t a book to read. Its a happily ever after but getting there is painful. Well written, I look forward to reading more by this author.
