Wow…what a great book! I really enjoyed Angie Merriam’s writing style. I didn’t know what to expect when I started this book, but I was definitely impressed at what I got. This is the story of hitting rock bottom, and finding the strength in yourself to climb back up to the top a survivor.
Lucy is broken when we first meet her. She wakes up tied to a bed, in an unknown home, with and unknown man. The way her life has been spiraling out of control she is not surprised that this is where and how she would end up. She is not scared to be there, though she knows she should be. You see Lucy gave up living a long time ago, and now she willingly welcomes death. She has lost everything she once held dear and loved. She fell into the wrong relationships with the most horrid of men, and let them take bits and pieces of her, til there was nothing left of the beautiful woman she once was. Her self-esteem is so low that she can’t find anything worth living for, or saving in herself. But then her savior comes to rescue her and put her back together.
Dallas…..my god you are one incredible man. You are selfless, kind, sexy to boot, charming, caring, funny, and the list could go on and on. You saw what needed to be done in order to save Lucy and you did it, no questions asked. Though your ways are a little less traditional then most would try, but hey whatever gets the job done right? Right! You have to know that you my, wonderful, delicious man, you….saved her. She was worth it too wasn’t she? *winks at Dallas*
This story touches on so many hard topics that we as humans face daily. Some people are monsters, some people live to make others feel as small and miserable as they do, but we are stronger then they think, and we must always remember to get up and fight. Get up and survive. Get up and concur. Get up and live.
