~ What's It About? ~

You get to the point where you can just say it. There was never anything special about me, except my father is rich and important. That's why it happened.
It was just a normal Tuesday afternoon.
I was twenty-three and thinking about my new designer boots. They kidnapped me for ransom. They raped me before I was rescued. My therapist says that talking about it means I'm starting to heal.
I don't really think I am.
It's even harder to talk about Gideon. He couldn’t save me when it really mattered, so he keeps trying to save me now. He refuses to give up on me, and I can’t make him understand. There are some things you just can’t be saved from.

~ My Thoughts ~

 I really can't put to many words on how this story was it was good and bad at the same time. I just didn't get the hole point of it taking that long for the main character to realize that someone cares so deeply for her even after all the pushes she gave to him. This story did open my eyes up to what women have went threw with rape and the recover process I can't even imagine what all that is like but reading about it is heartbreaking in itself. This was an amazing journey that I'm glad I went along with, so much that the beginning was a little out their for me with the hole kidnapped, rape, and fights, but over all it's a great story.

I never would have imagine myself enjoying the story and I'm overall excited with how it turned out in the end!! The Author did an amazing job writing this story, I felt as if I was sitting with a group of women and one was sharing her story with me, she made the words on paper seem that way, which if you ask me is down right amazing. Also to have the main character fall in love with everything that has happened was even better. I really liked the 2 main characters Gideon and Diana they are for sure a match made in heaven :)

I want to give a huge thanks to the author for sharing this story and sorry that my review is a day late but I was determined to still get it up!!! So Many Thanks to You!!!
My Goodreads Review

~ My Rating ~

~ Excerpt ~

      I chuckled and stretched my arm slightly, since his little caress was feeling so nice. He slid his fingers up from my palm to the heel of my hand. “That reminds me of someone else I know.”
      “I’m not really that way.”

      “Sure you aren’t,” I said dryly, tucking his arm around me more securely. “You’re not stubborn or self-sufficient at all.”

      “I’m not that bad.” It sounded like he was smiling. “I’d have knee surgery if I needed it.”

      He was caressing my wrist, and my breath hitched from the sensations. I’d never realized that the skin there was so sensitive, but even the slightest touch made me tingle.

      “I’ll remind you of that when you’re old and gray.” I’d intended for my tone to be cleverly ironic, but it sounded strangely slow and thick instead.

      “I guess you’ll still be telling me what to do then. You’ll most likely give me a little lecture about how I need the surgery.”

      “That’s right. If you need a lecture, I’ll give it to you.”

      He laughed again, and I could feel it through his whole body, which made me feel even nicer. I loved how he felt against me—like all the warmth and strength and life in the world was concentrated in his body.

      He pushed up my sleeve and stroked slowly up to the inside of my elbow and then back down. My breath hitched at the sensations. He did it again, and I heard myself making a husky groan.

      There was some little voice in the back of the mind, telling me that something was wrong, that this wasn’t how it was supposed to be. But it was too far distant for me to heed.

      For the moment, things felt nice and slow and safe and good, and I didn’t feel that way very often, so I didn’t want it to end.

      He lifted my hand and pressed a soft kiss into the palm, and that felt good too. When his lips brushed down to my wrist, no harder than the stroke of a feather, the sensations were so sweet that I gave another silly moan.

      He spent some time kissing my hand and wrist, moving so slowly I was barely aware of how things were progressing. I just really liked how it felt, and I liked being close to him.

      Then, for reason, I turned toward him more fully and looked up at his face. I’m not even sure why. I saw something on his face that was startling, terrifying, but then he lowered his face toward mine so I couldn’t see his expression anymore.

      He brushed his lips across my cheekbone, the way he’d been brushing them against my palm and wrist. Just as gentle. Just as slight. It felt every bit as good, so I felt myself tilting my face up toward his touch.
