Fragile Scars by Lilian Harris
SOMETIMES THE DEEPEST SCARS ARE THOSE NO ONE SEES.
I swore I'd never love anyone. But that all changed when I met Lilah, my new neighbor.
One look at her deep blue eyes and shy, teasing smile, and all I want to do is take her in my arms and protect her forever. The attraction between us is undeniable. The passion she stirs in me is like nothing I've ever experienced.
There's only one thing stopping me--the man who calls himself her boyfriend. The one who lies to her. The one who hurts her.
I'll do anything to get her away from him.
If only I can get her to trust me first.
I may appear to have it all--a great job, a cool apartment, a gorgeous boyfriend . . . but underneath that perfect exterior are bruises left by a monster who claims to love me.
I'd lost all hope of escaping, until I met Damian.
I know I shouldn't want him. I know I shouldn't cling to him like he's my last hope of survival.
But I do it anyway. And it may cost us everything.
