You can be the strongest amongst many but it only takes one person to break you. Each year I end it thinking a change is going to come. It had to come.
Only the last eight years I've clearly offended the devil somehow as he’s decided to pile some form of crap on my shoulders since the year I turned eighteen. Loss, betrayal, fears - I have been through it all. Life can change in an instance, ripping out your heart and soul and leaving you the shell of the person you once were. A shell that simply cannot be fixed.
After years of suffering from the loss of her mother and the betrayal of two men, Amelia thought she was damaged for life. Ruled by anxieties and self-help remedies of Tequila chasers with her best friend, Amelia settled into her new life at the coast and a job she loved.
Men were never again on her radar. They hurt her in every possible way. That was until she found herself in the arms of a stranger. His generosity was foreign to her; his ability to make her trust was overwhelming. Finally, as her life took a turn for the better, Amelia could see a future and a possibility of a happy ending she so desperately craved. However, like her past, everything changes in an instant, and how would she survive if it should come crashing down around her.
Life has a way of bringing you down when you least expect it; it can leave you vulnerable and lost, no matter your age.
For years, I've lived inside a world filled with darkness and demons. Trapped by grief and solitude, I've surrounded myself with work and privacy, thinking that's all I've needed.
Then, one night, she changes everything.
One ridiculous drinking game...
One extraordinary kiss...
I want her in my bed—I just have to find a way to prevent it from happening, because I don't deserve to share my world with another.
I don't deserve to fall this hard.
Two broken souls, fighting for freedom...
When I suddenly found myself in a world of darkness and despair, my only escape was to run. It was the only way I knew how to breathe.
Life had been one big shit storm and I longed to find the rainbow.
But it never came.
I was fighting for survival and longed to be saved.
Then it happened...
That little piece of hope finally broke through—creating the release I so desperately needed— and gave me a reason for living.
The night I met a stranger in the dark, he consumed me like no other. He gave me hope, and, even though I still felt the need to run, I can’t—not from him.
However, like everything in my life, it all seems too good to be true, because fate isn’t on my side. It never has been.
I was a man of my word until I made a promise I failed to keep. My world turned grey, my nights even darker, as I suffered in the silence of my own nightmares.
I longed for an escape, a distraction from my troubled mind.
Then it happened…
Little did I know that distraction would come with long, raven-black hair and a smile that took my breath away.
She changed me; she changed everything.
From the very second I held her, I knew her heart was scarred too, and I wanted to do everything within my power to fix her.
A life should be lived without fear and all she ever did was try to escape it. I needed to prevent that. I needed to protect her with every beat of my heart and every breath that I had.
But now I’m not sure if it will be enough.
