This book picks up with Kara in the hospital. Deacon had her for 4 days. Sam managed to get her out. She is trying to trust Sloan again after his actions. But she cannot resist him. He is the one for her. They try very hard to be together. Kara is trying to recover her memories. But she discovers some of the secrets that he has been keeping and she is devastated. I don't know how they can ever be together after what happens next.
I could not stop reading this book. I love Kara! She is a fighter and survivor. I don't understand Sloan's thinking sometimes. I NEED book three!
Here's my review of Aftermath (Fractured 2.5) by Elle Charles on goodreads.
Kara Petersen has lived through more than most.
The horrors of her past had shaped her, forcing her to walk through this life relatively alone. Untrusting and guarded, seeking solace in the shadows, she thought she could survive anything that life threw at her.
And she did...
He brought her out of the darkness and into the light. He gave her a life she could never have imagined. She fell in love with him, but when faced with controversy, just like everyone else, he let her down.
He broke her heart.
She was complacent.
She was foolish.
Except, it wasn’t her love for him that was foolish, it was believing she could escape pain.
In a bid to end her suffering for one night only, she unknowingly walked into the path of evil.
Enduring the devastation of having to remember the night of her abduction, she must decide if she is willing to risk possibly having her heart broken again in order to find out the truth.
Can she really give all her love to a man who has the ability to obliterate her completely?
Taking a leap of faith, she vows to trust him, regardless of how imprudent it may transpire be.
Falling further into his outwardly perfect world for a second time, Kara is, once again, treading a path she fears will eventually destroy her.
As truths finally unfold and decade old secrets are revealed, it’s clear the past has never been too far behind and binds her to others in ways unimaginable.
Together, she discovers their love is tormented.
