My husband is gone and all that remains are his clothes, his shoes, our memories. The bathroom is filled with his shaver, his toothbrush, his hair brush. But the last thing he left behind was a folded flag that now sits in the living room.
My children will never know their father.
I will never know how it feels to grow old with him.
All that I have left are the voices. The voices that haunt me day and night and never leave me alone. The ones telling me I’d be better off six feet under instead of him.
But they stop when he comes along.
My new best friend, and a savior I never expected.
I left Knoxville for a reason.
I promised myself I’d never get close to anyone ever again.
All I do is ruin, damage, destroy everything I touch.
But she sees me. Through me. To the place I don’t let anyone into. She sucks me in with her light. Suddenly, I find myself playing house with her and her two kids wondering how the hell I got here and when I am finally going to stop.
All I do is ruin.
I know all too well the demons she fights, having served my country like her late husband and still hiding secrets of my own.
I watch her fall apart. I watch her wrestle with her mind. I see her struggle and know I have to help, if only for a while.
I can’t get enough of her.
She might need a savior, but what she doesn’t know is she is the one doing all the saving and I’m a damn fool to think I can ever walk away again.

Not my first read by the author, and I had the amazing chance to make this and BOOK #2 cover. A sweet slow-burn!
