Abby has been through hell and has survived one of the most brutal childhoods imaginable… barely.
To the outside world she is just a loner with an attitude.
When her grandmother dies in a tragic explosion, Abby is left with questions-and nothing else.
Homeless, sleeping in a junkyard, and on the run from a system that has failed her over and over again, she meets Jake, a tattooed blue-eyed biker with secrets that rival her own.
Two broken souls that can’t be healed. They can’t be saved.
Abby & Jake have to decide if they can accept the darkness not only within one another, but within themselves.
If they can accept each other for who they really are, they might be able to learn that love isn’t always found in the light.
Abby has lived a straight up, shitty life. She was raised by her drug addicted, abusive parents and foster care before finally landing with her grandma. She was still gossiped about but her life had purpose and stability. She finds out that her Nan died at her high school graduation. She’s several months from eighteen and refuses to go into foster care again.
Jake’s four years older than Abby and his life has been hell. His father holds him responsible for the deaths of his brother and mother. The opening scene with Jake and his father was absolutely chilling. It gave me stomach cramps. I knew at that moment that I was hooked.
When these two people meet, you start a love story between a contract killer and a girl who had nothing but her inner strength. I’ll warn you though, this isn’t for the faint of heart. It’s hardcore and dark. I didn’t love Jake for most of the book. There were times that I wanted to punch him in the throat. Abby had me from the start, I loved her. Another great read by the wonderful author.
