Way too young, eleven year old Tucker Creed and his six year old neighbor, Sylvie Bissenette, find they have something awful in common. Creed then decides he’s going to do everything in his limited power to shield his Sylvie from her ordeal. So he does and Creed and Sylvie form a bond that grows and blossoms with their ages.
They plot to leave their lives behind, the town they live in that will hold them down and the histories they share that, unless they break free, will bury them. Sylvie goes to their special place, Creed never shows and she doesn’t see him again until it’s too late.
With Creed gone, Sylvie is forced to endure a nightmare and do the unspeakable to end it. To deal, she develops a hard shell with sharp edges that very few can break through. So when Creed again finds his Sylvie, he discovers the girl he loved is locked away and he has to find his way back into her heart without getting shredded in the process.

My ****4.5 Star**** Review
HOT. STEAMY. and totally KICK BUTT. Sylvie is tough – literally and figuratively. She can take down men with a speed that leaves her bulky male cohorts in awe. She’s had to become tough, though. It was that or die. She had to endure a horrific 6 years, and to make matters worse, her own father was responsible for it. Beyond that she had to go 16 years wondering why the only person she ever loved betrayed her.
Creed had to endure his own torture, though. Now that he’s found Sylvie, there’s no way he’s letting her go. He’s willing to make it all about the sex (which is SMOKIN’), but only for a little while. He’s determined to crack Sylvie’s hard exterior. Creed will do absolutely anything for Sylvie, and that’ll leave you melting. He’s all hard, tough guy, calls the shots himself, too. While he’ll do anything for Sylvie, he’s still totally alpha. There’s no whiny little boys here!
I totally recommend this to ladies looking for a very steamy alpha boyfriend that’ll do anything for his women. I also recommend this to all the ladies looking for a tough inspiring heroin that doesn’t let anything beat her down! While this book takes place after Knight the first book in the Unfinished Heroes series, it can be read as a stand-alone. I won my copy of the book, and was not asked to review. I just wanted to share!
About the Author ~ Kristen Ashley
Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA. She nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorise and she hadn’t taken her first breath!).
Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana but has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus she has been blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her posse is loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write.
Kristen was raised in a house with a large and multi-generational family. They lived on a very small farm in a small town in the heartland and existed amongst the strains of Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).
Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.
And as she keeps growing up, it keeps getting better.
