When an Author decides to write about a difficult subject that is still taboo to discuss today, it can be done in several ways, but there is no right or wrong way to do it. The storyline can be written by the Author deciding to lightly skirt the issue and discussing this subject in a gentle manner that is acceptable to everyone or jump in with both feet ready to tackle this sensitive topic to the best of their ability. This Author decided to do it with elegance and impartiality with the words written in this story.
Cutter is a man who sees a woman in distress that needs his help. Even though, this woman doesn’t realize that she needs him to be her knight in shining armor. She is used to the dysfunctional life that was handed to her. Cutter knows that Dylan doesn’t deserve the woman he married straight out of high school. Cutter can’t justify the need to have her for himself. This doesn’t mean he won’t do want it takes to get and keep her forever.
Cutter knows that Jasmine is a broken shell of a woman that he is willing to put back together piece by piece. Cutter finds himself falling for Jasmine’s sweet and kind nature. He only gets to see it occasionally because she puts up this emotionless, blank mask.
Jasmine finds herself in a situation that she never thought she would be in. Life events have beaten her down until there is nothing left. She meets Cutter and starts feeling emotions that she hasn’t felt in a long time. Things in Jasmine’s life escalate to the point of no return and she starts falling for Cutter. Jasmine can be happy and live a life full of love if she can let herself overcome the evil actions that were bestowed upon her.
It was hard to write this review because of the delicate nature that the author writes about in this book. I was trying not to give any juicy details and to leave it for the readers. This Author does a fantastic job of writing this story. This delicate subject is handled in a graceful and talented way. Most authors struggle to write about any delicate topic that society deems sensitive, and wrong. I have read a few other books by this Author but thought this was one of her best ones yet. I wonder what she has in store for the readers next.
