Life has not been kind to Bianca.
Childhood abuse has left her cautious.
She trusts no one. Especially men.
Guarding her emotional and physical scars has been her life’s mission.
She went to her deathbed without ever sharing her secrets with anyone.
Or so she thought.
Waking up from ten years in a cryostat leaves her scared out of her mind.
People have seen her scars.
The horror of that new reality has her reeling.
And worse? She’s been left alone in the care of a man she barely knows.
Grayson’s job is to keep Bianca safe and nurse her to health.
He’s well aware she has secrets.
The welts on her back explain a lot about the private woman.
It’s not a surprise that she doesn’t trust him.
She doesn’t deserve whatever life has dealt her.
He will move mountains to keep her safe and help her heal.
As their friendship grows, he gradually breaks down her walls.
He’d give anything for her to let him in.
But he won’t rush her.
Patience is his best option.
Bianca believes she is too broken to be loved.
Grayson will wait a lifetime to prove her wrong.
