David Barrows world fell apart at the age of eleven after his mother died. Years of physical and emotional abuse followed, leaving him scarred in body and mind, mired in the belief that he is unlovable. He spends his days working in a comic shop, and his nights alone wrestling with the ghosts of his past.
As a Marine, Adam Duncan has sworn to protect and serve, and there is no one he is more protective of than his brother and nephew. When tragedy strikes, threatening the security of his family, his protective instincts kick in. But how can he fight an enemy he can’t see?
David and Adam feel the connection between them, but David has built walls around his heart that no one has bothered to break through, until Adam. Adam can see what a special man David is, and is willing to do whatever it takes to break down those barriers. Can he make David see he doesn’t have to keep living his life…Looking In?
First-time author hurt/healing/comfort goodness!
I absolutely LOVED this book. Adam, with his calm, gentle love, is perfect book-boyfriend material.
Hurt/healing/comfort junkies who love an emotional story about a hurt and lost main character with some book-boyfriend hot sex thrown in for good measure, this book is for you.
A big THANK YOU to Kael for the recommendation!
