My Review:

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

**warning**

This book has scenes depicting domestic violence towards a woman and child.

I believe this is Kinsey's debut novel and if so I think it's an amazing piece of literature it's emotional, heartbreaking and sexy.

Kennedy has known abuse her whole life, physically abused as a child she is resumed and welcomed into her best friends family at age 17... Fate again steps in and deals her an abusive husband and history starts to repeat itself.

Kinsey has wrote such passion and fight into Kennedy she it the epitome of an abused person yet the survival instinct is in her it just has to break free and I enjoyed her journey throughout this book.

Corbin Nash an MMA fighter and long lost crush of Kennedy is back in town and an attraction sparks between the two.. Corbin has his own demons and his journey to find the light in the darkness was a good one too.

This is a story of two tortured souls trying to find their way in life, throw in some nut bag ex's on both sides to amp the story up, you have a compelling and passionate read.

If you are a fan of the angst and emotional with a bit of sexy read then this is a recommended read as it it just has an all round feel to it.




Excerpt:
Through clenched teeth he demandingly asks, “Did you think I wouldn’t notice? You were eye-fucking the dude across the table from your brother, Kennedy. You cheating on me, whore?”
“Don’t be ridiculous, Troy. I was looking at him listening to him talk,” I whisper.
“Bullshit, Kennedy.”
Just then, the atmosphere changes, goose bumps spread covering every part of my body. No! Not now! Not here! Glancing over my shoulder, I spot Corbin, his fists tightly clenched, moving in our direction.
“Is this guy bothering you?” he asks.
I shake my head no, and plead with him using my eyes.
“Mind your own goddamn business, asshole. This is my wife, and we are having a discussion, so piss off,” Troy says.
“Then why, as her husband, do you have your hands forcefully placed on her? When did it become okay to talk that way to your wife?”
Troy whips around to fully face him, and I have to move fast to get myself wedged between the two of them. Troy moves against me pushing me back to face Corbin. Placing my hands up I plead softly, “Tonight is my brother’s night, and I won’t have either of you ruining it. Please.”
“You don’t deserve to be treated like this,” Corbin says sternly looking up into Troy’s eyes.
