I had to step up, take over,
Save her from herself,
A jerk who didn't deserve her.
But I sure as Hell don't either
She's too sweet, too soft, too kind.
A broken shell of the woman she once was.
But now, there's more on the line,
She's in too deep.
And I'll be damned if I ever give up
On putting her back together,
Owning every ounce of the woman,
Who stole my heart.
The abuse this woman has had to endure, and seeing how she was beaten down, both physically and mentally, isolated to the point she felt worthless was terrifyingly heart-wrenching. Because of this reason, Cutter has to tread lightly, ordering her while little by little giving her choices to make.
I cried while reading this book. The gentleness Cutter exhibited was beautiful. This was a 5 star read.
