He was kind.
Cyrus Butcher wasn’t like any man I had ever met before. He took his time with me. Opened up new feelings and made me realize that not all men were monsters.
Ripped from my life at a young age, I spent years in a hell I wasn’t sure I would ever survive. But I did. Only to become a shell of the woman I once was.
With him, the dark and handsome stranger who saved me, he helped me find my voice again. While he was gentle, I knew that there was a dominant man in him I needed.
As I opened up to him and gave him my truths, he showed me a passionate side to myself I thought was lost forever.
I was the pet he needed.
He was the Sir I craved.
She was quiet.
A good girl.
Ainsley Cloet was the submissive I had spent years looking for. She was passionate and fierce. The strongest woman I had ever met. But she kept those parts of herself hidden after spending years locked up at the hands of vile human beings.
While we became closer, my brother became moodier. Spending our lives trying to mask the pain of losing our parents at a young age, neither of us thought we could find the happiness we both deserved.
After earning Ainsley’s trust, falling in love, and making promises about our future, someone who had been lurking in the shadows the whole time finally let himself be known.
But no matter the damage that had been caused, I would be there.
At her side.
As her protector.
And as her Dom.
Review by Twinsie Angie
I received this book from the author for an honest review.
Oh Cyrus. I may be wanting to claim you for my own. I have fallen in love with many of JM’s men but since Garrith in her very first series, no one had captured my heart like you have.
Cyrus is patience like I have never known. When he sees Ainsley, he knows she might be what he is looking for. He realized that whoring around with Sammy and having one-night stands was not doing it for him anymore. He wants what his parents had. He wants one woman to make him happy. He wants the other half to his tormented soul.
Ainsley…what a back story. She is broken. She is battered. She is the shell of her former self. When she meets Cyrus, she sees a glimmer of “Maybe” with him. He is kind, loving, sweet, understanding, and everything she needs to overcome her trauma.
The two start to see where things go and work on her trust and comfort. The main problem is Sammy. He is so worried about losing his brother he does tend to cause a few issues. Plus, Ainsley fears she is being stalked. She knows her past may be catching up with her and doesn’t know what to do to stay safe and keep Cyrus safe.
The two have a powerful dynamic. They both fall for the other hard and fast but the trust and emotional safety they build is amazing. The chemistry is off the charts for the couple. I admit I didn’t want the story to end and cant wait to see more of them in Sammy’s book.
