Five years. You’d expect so much to have changed, right?
Ride or die. I said those words.
Easy words to speak. Hard words to live by.
Hard when the man you love, your hero, the man you see through rose-colored glasses, has a father who is a serial killer. Hard when you feel the man you love slowly drift away from you.
Life comes to a halt. It becomes all about survival.
I’ve done that dance.
Survive. Never thrive. I’m okay with that.
Nix isn’t. Not at all.
He has a plan. A terribly destructive plan that can and does wreak havoc on all of us.
He doesn’t know I have a plan too. To prove to him I can handle anything and everything he dishes out. I want to handle it.
Because when you love someone, you’re their teammate.
You build them up.
You accept them.
More than anything, you love them.
… And I love him.
I just hope it doesn’t kill us.

Shattered (Shattered Duet Book 1)
Sometimes, when I really think about it, I can almost feel the way the breeze felt against my skin that day. How it washed over me, cooling my heated skin.
I remember counting the minutes it took to get to my boyfriend’s house. Twenty-two, but it took twenty-three that day. Maybe the extra minute was a warning.
One I didn’t heed, of course.
I wanted love. It’s all I wanted. I would have done anything for it.
It made me an easy victim.
Tell me I’m pretty here, hug me there and I was a puppet on his string. He pulled and pulled until he asked me to do the one thing I absolutely could not do.
It broke me to tell him no. Tore me up. I went over to his house that day to try and find a way to make it up to him. To fix what I broke.
Cool breeze. Sunshine. Hope for love, fear I ruined my chance at it by being disobedient.
Black. One minute was all it took for Sage Briar-Rose to cease to exist.
To shatter her.
This is the story of how I lost myself. The story of how my naive search for love left me shattered.
Trigger Warning: This book deals with extremely sensitive topics. If you get triggered easily, I’d choose one of my other books.
