Review
5 stars

The first time Jared met Katy he was intrigued by the familiar look he saw in her eyes, they were similar to the haunted look in his own he had seen many times before in the mirror.  The second time he saw Katy he thought it must be fate but her skittish behavior told Jared her internal wounds were still raw.  The third, fourth, and fifth time he let his patience guide him trying to get Katy to agree to go out with him.

Katy is still drowning in her pain from a brutal attack after two years, although she is doing everything right by moving on, therapy, and trying to let the past go, she just can’t seem to take that big jump.  When she meets Jared the first time she feels safe with another man, it is a very simple thing by him taking her hand in protection mode, but it kick starts a feeling long suppressed.  As Jared’s tenacity to get Katy to go out with him continues Katy finds that he has handed her all the control.  Jared is a big man, he is a MMA fighter, he is a survivor himself and Katy finds herself blossoming within as their relationship grows.

Profoundly beautiful, I was completely riveted with this story. There is a depth to the story that rarely is found  when trying to translate the feelings of a character,  with Katy she reaches into your soul and overpowers you with her pain and confusion on how to let it go.  After I reflected over this powerful story, I realized that Micalea Smeltzer wrote a story that carried an emotion from start to finish.  In the beginning you are torn up, you feel Katy’s pain, I cried several times, but she begins to build strength as the story progresses and you revel in the emotion you get from each sentence in this story. I thought this story was absolutely amazing, inspirational, and mind blowing.  High praises all around.
