Betrayed. Sold. Tortured. Now she’s fighting to rebuild her life.
Diamond Hatcher was always the quiet girl—the shy one. Her ordeal at the hand of human traffickers left her more reserved, expressing through her paintings what she cannot put into words. She took the biggest risk of her life when she let Detective Elijah Newton know she was interested in him, but he didn’t return her feelings.
Elijah’s life was turned upside down in a way he never could have expected, and although he has feelings for Diamond, there is no way he’s going to drag her into the mess his life has become. Until fate forces his hand. When someone starts using Diamond’s paintings as inspiration to commit murder, there isn’t anything he won’t do to keep her safe, including tell her his biggest secret.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5
Sold at the age of 18 by her own parents, Diamond struggles to keep herself alive and not give in to the torture and pain that her body is put through. She had dreams of going to college, having a career that she enjoyed, incorporate her love for painting, and have a family, now it looks like all of her dreams have been stolen from her and she may never see her four sisters ever again. Being betrayed by her own parents has broken her heart but being the oldest and not knowing where her younger sisters are or if they are still alive, is the worst torture for her, even with the torture that her body is being put through.
He is attracted to Diamond, his partners older sister, but he has enough on his plate right now and with what Diamond has endured already in her life, he doesn’t want to put her in a situation that could destroy the work she has done to move on with her life. Even after she made it clear to him that she is interested, Elijah is afraid to put her in the crossfire of Lisa’s sights. Lisa is his ex that he’s in a custody battle with. He wants Diamond in his life, but he won’t let Lisa drag her into their battle.
This story is tragic, suspenseful, and shows the strength that someone has when they have support and the love of people who care for her. Diamond is not the only one to have to battle for a new normal, but she feels that she may be the last to find her new normal or ability to move on with her life. When danger comes along that points to more trouble for Diamond, Elijah will step up and do whatever he can to protect her and keep her safe. It may take some time to make sure she is safe, but when he thinks he’s lost her for good, the truth of his feelings will become clear and he will fight harder to protect her and keep her in his life. I really enjoyed the story, it’s dark, depraved, and tragic, but the characters are great, strong, and willing to fight for their lives as well as those they love and care about. I give this story a 5-star review and look forward to more in the series.
