I know what it’s like to bleed. To have so much pain you can barely breathe. My entire life got burned down in flames, and now I’m nothing.
My escape? Friends, booze, and willing women. They make me feel numb. Better yet, they keep me distracted from the memories that plague me.
When a curvy brunette walks into my tattoo shop I immediately recognize the sad look in her eyes. Pain. Regret. Grief.
But I’m drawn to her, wanting to be near her all the time. Maybe it’s because we have something in common. A broken heart.
Harlow has just about as many walls around her as I do. We’re both ruined, but despite being shattered into a million pieces, the more time we spend together the more she’s beginning to show me what hope looks like. It’s terrifying.
If I keep on pursuing her, there are only two ways this could end. We’ll either help each other mend, or we’ll destroy the last bit of humanity we have left.

She was met with the warmth of Toby’s hand at her lower back again and couldn’t help but shiver at the contact as they followed behind the hostess until they reached their table. At that moment, he pulled her chair out for her, and she smiled widely. “Such a gentleman.”
“Not often.” Toby cleared his throat. “I’m a little rusty.”
The tinge of pink in his cheeks was endearing. “Do you come here often? It’s a great spot for a date.”
And there comes the verbal vomit.
Now it was her turn to blush as she continued to stammer. “Um, not that tonight is a date or anything. It’s just…” She gestured around them and left the sentence hanging.
“I get you.” Toby placed his hand on top of hers from across the table to stop her from fidgeting. “You’re different, and I wanted to take you some place nice. End of story.”
“Different how?” she asked. “I’m just a regular girl, taking life one day at a time. Like the rest of you.”
“See, that’s were your wrong.” He sighed and leaned back in his chair. “From the moment we met, I could tell you were different than what I was used to. You’re smart and beautiful and one of the strongest women I’ve ever had the pleasure to meet. I know loss, Harlow. It’s not the same as yours exactly, but it still fucks me up. You, on the other hand,” he shrugged, “I guess when I see you, I see what hope looks like. You’ve hit bottom and crawled back to the top. You help people and honor your daughter’s memory. I see it, and I admire you for it.”
It was her turn to reach out to him. She took his hand in hers and leaned forward. “That is the nicest thing anyone has ever said to me. I think I might cry.”
“Shit, please don’t.”
