READ AN EXCERPT
“Come on, Jaxxson. Don’t pretend you haven’t noticed how quickly she flips,” he scoffs, roughly wiping away his tears. “One second, she is my sweet Dame. Wide-eyed with awe over the newness of our freedom and completely in love with the world around us. The next second, she is pulling that fucking blade from her boot and willing to take down anything in her path just to keep me safe. That Lil would watch the entire world burn with a smile as long as I was next to her, holding her hand. Then, there is- Jaxx I-” He buries his face in his hands, releasing another pained cry.
“There’s what, Kendrick?” I swallow hard, bracing myself for the next emotional blow.
“The Lilabelle they broke, Jaxx. The little girl who cried for her Papa while I held her. The one I tried so fucking hard to protect and failed to, over and over. That is the Lilabelle I hear screaming in my dreams. I reach out for her tiny hand, and she slips from my grip every fucking night.” Kendrick looks up at me, pain clear in his eyes. “She still cries out for him, and I hate him for it.”
