Sometimes it takes someone else to show us what we are truly capable of becoming.
Suffering from years of violent abuse, Ryan Campbell has learned how to keep people from getting too close. But when you shut yourself off, people get hurt along the way. Never caring much about others, Ryan creates a world in which he doesn’t have to feel.
When Ryan meets Candace Parker, all of his walls slowly begin to crumble. Not sure of the truth of who she is, he feels his mind is playing tricks on him. Unable to force out the thoughts that consume him, Ryan is haunted by visions that torment him every time he looks at her. He finds himself swallowed by guilt and blame, but he’s unwilling to turn his back on the one person that could possibly save him.
You’ve heard Candace’s story in Fading, now hear Ryan’s.

I need to pay more attention lol I had no idea this was an alternate POV book, I thought i was getting a completely different story which I kinda did. We get to learn so much more about Ryan in falling, about his upbringing his family and his friendships. Seeing Ryans reaction to what happened to Candace through his eyes was so touching and helped me believe in them as a couple even more then I already did. I LOVED seeing his friendship with Jase and Mark from his side as well just how comfortable he seemed with them all he just seemed like the perfect fit to make them a foursome. Great book, it really was almost like reading a while different story because we see so much that we hadn't even had a clue about from Freeing. Grab it and make sure to read Freeing and Fading as well!
“You okay?” I ask.
She doesn’t answer, she just shakes her head and after a second begins crying again, wetting my shirt as she nuzzles into my chest. I strengthen my arms around her and let her cry without saying anything.
The hurt coming out of her is hard to listen to, but I do, and it breaks me. Breaks me in a way that even though I hate it, I find myself savoring it. The connection. Her need for me right now and the contentment I find in being the one to give it to her.
