Two hearts tied together by hope and tragedy.
An unexpected smile. A touch on scarred flesh. A kiss on waiting lips.
An undeniable love that overcomes all doubt...

My childhood and innocence were stolen when I was kidnapped at five years old and held captive for eleven years. Now, at eighteen years old, I don’t know what love, happiness, or hope feels like anymore. I’m numb and lost, clinging to a childhood fairytale of a happily ever after with the prince I hoped would someday save me.

I had no idea my prince would come in the form of a scarred recluse, covered in tattoo’s, who won’t—or can’t—speak a word.

The moment our eyes met I knew he was the one. My prince.
The one I knew would save me.

He's possibly as lost in society as I am, scarred just as much on the inside as the outside. Just like me. Haunted by his tragic past, he’s sentenced himself to a lifetime of loneliness. He saved my life that day he found me in the woods, and although he doesn’t speak or smile, I can't stop thinking about him. I ache to hear his voice and see him smile. And I want nothing more than to be the one to break through his walls.

Together, we found love, happiness, and a closeness that once felt impossible to have. But can I save him from himself, and the twisted past that ties us together?

MY REVIEW

It was all about Tyler for me. He was EVERYTHING!! It's not to say that I didn't like Holly or that I wasn't sympathetic to her plight because I definitely was. She was kidnapped at the age of 8 and eventually rescued by Ty 10 years later. So I felt that. Her and Ty were "tied" to each other in more ways than one.

"She's everything. My past. My present. My future. My twin flame - the one who shares the path of my soul."

She was Ty's perfect match, in every way. Their slow build that evolved from rescuer/rescuee to friends to soulmates was a thing of beauty and it was all due to Ty. He was ultimately swoon-worthy and romantic. I only wish I could have seen some sort of resolution to the distance between these two and their families. Holly and her brother seemed to be on the right path, but the same couldn't have been said for her little sister or her parents. As for Ty, there was no doubt that his family loved him to pieces but it would have been nice to see him embraced back into the fold. I would loved to have seen him re-establish his relationship with them.

"I'm going to love all of her - the good and the bad, the smiles and the fears, the pretty and the dirty."

Regardless, what Holly and Ty found and shared was more than enough for most people and I was happy to enjoy their journey to love with them.
