Almost like a soap opera, sometimes you wonder just how many awful things can happen to one person in a lifetime Cole finds Alex running in the woods after escaping a serial killer who had held her and tortured her for five months, the same one who had killed her parents in front of her when she was a small child.
He is not finished without her yet, though as she is safe with Cole, the killer is out there searching for her. Planning his next game and never letting her go. The story is about two people overcoming tremendous odds and obstacles to be together. PTSD plays a major part in both of their stories. There is a lot of angst and drama as well as nightmares and actual scares.
