When River’s already broken
life shattered further on her sixteenth birthday, she was forced to be with the
wrong best friend of her brothers. She was meant for Sammy but circumstance and
black mail forced her into a relationship with Danny, a troubled, abusive
partner. Leaving the only boy she ever loved to flee. Now four years later he
has returned. When her feelings and missing parts of herself that left with him
return also, loyalty, restraint and love will be tested. Can she find a way to
leave the threatening clutches of Danny, to finally be saved by her childhood
love? Or will Danny’s hold on her tighten when more life shattering events
consume their already troubled lives? 
When Sammy returns home, after four years of
being away from the girl that broke his heart, he’s not prepared for all his
old feelings to force their way straight back into his heart. Questions that
were left unasked when he left begin to plague him, when the sudden
relationship between River and Danny all those years ago seems all the more
confusing now. Secrets, mistrust and Danny’s possessive behavior sends up red
flags and Sammy begins doubting himself for leaving in the first place. When
the spark between Sammy and river finally ignites it will leave explosive consequences
for everyone.
“Sammy!” I call out.
Once we’re alone, he turns and rushes towards me,
his hand swiping across my mouth to wipe Danny’s kiss away. “I know why you’re
with him.”
My heart begins in drumming against my ribcage
flashes of my past echoing in my mind.
“Blaydon told me the kind of love your dad had for
you, River. That’s not love, and neither is guilting you into being with
someone just because he knows your secrets. I love you. I love everything that
you are.”
I stumble backwards,
shaking. My mouth opens and the scared girl’s voice tumbles out. “Do you love
all of me, Sammy? Because this,” I point down at myself, “this is a lie. This
is the lie I show to you and Blaydon; the lie I wear every day for you and for
everyone so you won’t have to see the damaged, broken girl underneath. This
smile, these clothes, they’re not me. I’m tainted, Sammy. I’m shattered. My
mother took some of me with her when she died, my dad took some when he made me
sit on his lap while he violated me, and more 
when he beat Blaydon for stopping him from raping
me, and then you left, taking the rest of me, leaving my soul bare and exposed
for Danny to capture and hold hostage. Can you fix me, Sammy? Can you want
something so ruined and destroyed? Can you put me back together and make me
whole again? Because whatever is left of me, the real me, you have her. You own
all of her, all that’s left. My thoughts, my body, and my heart. Can you save
me? Sammy, please save me. Please save me.”
collapse to the ground and sob. Sammy bundles me into his lap and strokes my
back. “Shh, don’t cry. I love you, and I’ll try every God damn day to save you,
River, I promise. I’ll save you, baby.”
