Brody Markham has endured a nightmare, spending the last five years in prison and losing everything that was dear to him. Now he’s back home, trying to survive in a world he doesn’t recognize anymore. While his family and friends desperately try to reach through to him, he shelters himself further and further away from their love.
Alyssa Myers has worked her entire life to distance herself from the luxurious and privileged lifestyle in which she was raised. Running her non-profit agency, The Haven, she is content to spend her days helping abused animals find sanctuary, which fulfills her in a way that money just can’t buy.
Maybe it’s that she recognizes in Brody some of the same characteristics she sees in her homeless wards, but Alyssa is powerless to stop her personal quest to make Brody whole again.
While Brody struggles to surface from the darkness, Alyssa tries to protect her heart in case he’s not willing to accept the light that she offers him.
Sawyer never ceases to amaze me
Sawyer does yet another amazing job or writing a book that pulls me in and takes me in this amazingly beautiful emotional ride. She manages to have the perfect balance of angst, drama and steam.
Brody has a story that is so heartbreaking, but also so endearing. What he did and why he did it is , I don't even know if I could find a word to properly describe his actions.
Alyssa is such a strong woman. Someone who's in a very scary situation but refuses to let it deter her from living and loving her life. She's strong enough to pull a man from the darkness and make him see the light in his life. But Brody is also the strength she needs. And their relationship, the growth, it's beautiful.
Sawyer has done another exceptional job with this story. I can't say enough good things. She brought out my feelings with this story, and not just with their relationship but with their job. So well done Sawyer, so well done.
I give this 4.5 stars!
