“If you’re broken, I’ll fix you…”
I’m only twenty-one and already damaged goods. A slut. A failure. A disappointment to my picture-perfect family as long as I can remember. I called off my wedding to William Bailey, the only man who thought I was worth fixing. A year later, he’s marrying my sister. Unless I ask him not to…
“If you shatter, I’ll find you…”
But now there’s Asher Logan, a broken man who sees the fractures in my façade and doesn’t want to fix me at all. Asher wants me to stop hiding, to stop pretending. Asher wants to break down my walls. But that means letting him see my ugly secrets and forgiving him for his.
With my past weighing down on me, do I want the man who holds me together or the man who gives me permission to break?
This book is one of those books that you think about days after you've finished it. The story is heart breaking and beautiful at the same time. The characters are so well crafted, they are real people with scars, disappointments and fears. Maggie's secrets from her past, her dysfunctional family, the small town, Asher's other life all play roles in drawing the reader into the story. And when the two main characters come together, you can't deny they are perfect for one another. The way Asher cares for Maggie when she expected him to be the one-night stand bad-boy rocker was so sexy.
This is a MUST READ.
Asher rolls me onto my back until his body is over mine, my face framed in his hands. "Don't be afraid to break, Maggie. Stop holding onto the ugliness just to stay whole."
Hot tears slip from the corners of my eyes and roll into my ears. "What if no one can fix me?"
"You don't need fixing." He gives a sad smile and wipes a tear away with his thumb. "It's like your mosaics. The beauty is already there, you just find it. Let go, sweetheart."
"I'm afraid I'll shatter."
He lifts my hand to his lips and kisses along the line of the stitches running down my palm. "If you shatter, I'll find you."
