Back Blurb 

Warning: This is not your typical romance. The story of Abby & Jake contains disturbing situations, graphic violence, sex, strong language, drug use, and all types of abuse.

 Abby has been through hell and has survived one of the most brutal childhoods imaginable…barely. To the outside world she is just a loner with an attitude. When her grandmother dies in a tragic explosion, Abby is left with questions-and nothing else. Homeless, sleeping in a junkyard, and on the run from a system that has failed her over and over again, she meets Jake, a tattooed blue-eyed biker with secrets that will rival her own.

Two broken souls that can't be healed. They can't be saved. Abby & Jake must reveal to one another their most guarded secrets and discover if they can embrace the darkness those secrets hold-and the darkness within themselves. If they can accept one another for who they really are, they might be able to learn that love isn’t always found in the light.

What I LIKED about this book.

Abbey and Jake are survivors. They don't know how to give up. 

What I DISLIKED about this book.

You need to take that warning up there in red very seriously. This has some extremely hard to read parts. I know some readers might not want to read it. Skip the parts if you need to, but I would still read the book. 

Full Review

I have been blessed to live a pretty quiet life. I was sheltered from the darkest parts of what some people know as normal life. Abbey and Jake have been abused by the ones who should care for them. I was shocked several times. Every time I thought I had heard the worst of what they had been through, something else is revealed. I almost had an emotional breakdown. This books was gritty and dark. If you are a fan of Madeline Sheehan, you will probably like T.M. Frazier.
