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 Tenise
Ainsley managed to escape her captors but it has left her severely broken. She has been mute for years. She is teaching ASL at the Center and they have also helped her find a place to live. Cyrus is fighting demons of his own but one day, while at The Center, he meets Ainsley. Now he can’t keep his mind off of the silent girl from The Center. He doesn’t know it yet, but Ainsley can’t stop thinking about Cyrus either.
Oh my, Cyrus was, gah, he was absolutely perfect. I loved everything about him. My new favorite JM hero. He may very well be my most favorite Hero EVER! He was kind, gentle, and extremely patient. He let Ainsley have the control, something he knew she needed. That was sweet, selfless, and sexy AF!
I am loving this series! I am always excited for the next book to be released but I know I’m going to be sad when the final book ends. I’m not sure how she even manages it but each book in this series is better than the last and I seriously cannot wait to read the next book in the series.
