Delani Delvecchio has weathered storm after storm throughout her life, but this one may have the potential to break her. After what is supposed to be an anniversary celebration with her friends and boyfriend, Delani gets pulled into her own personal hell.
Taken. Beaten. Tormented.
Delani fights and makes it out, only to realize she’s not safe at home—she’s no longer safe in New York at all. With an untraceable phone, clothes that aren’t her own, and enough money to get her by, she gets on a train and heads to the last place she felt she would be looked for.
What she didn’t expect to find when she got there was him.
Cocky. Charismatic. Safe.
Brody Russell, small town cop, quickly becomes the calm during Delani’s storm.
His presence makes her forget and his southern charm works its way into her heart.
Brody promises to protect her, to be right by her side when the storm ends.
But what if this storm is only the beginning?
Broken. Traumatized. Consumed.
Delani Delvecchio has been through more heartbreak in her life than most can handle. She’s strong—stronger than she thought herself capable—but her victory comes with consequences.
She’s slipping—slipping from reality and fearing everything around her. Nightmares are controlling her mind, demons from the past are playing tricks, and her foundation is cracking.
Loyal. Determined. Faithful.
Brody Russell saved Delani from hell, only to be faced with a hell of his own.
Being a small-town cop, he thought he’d been prepared for the repercussions of helping Delani, but now, he’s facing a trial that’s determined to break him, and all he wants is his love for Delani to survive the fallout.
Emotions run high, boundaries are pushed, and the odds stacked against them become a race against time.
The storm might be over, but the devastation has taken its toll. Surviving is the only option, but will it be enough?
