To save him from the sadness to come, Bren feels she has no choice but to push him away.
After running from his past for so long, Max got his first taste of a blissful life with Bren. Behind him are the days of mafia brutality and rival families… or so he hopes. But things take a dark and inexplicable turn when Bren begins pushing him away. After all he’s lost, he refuses to let her destroy what they have by hiding behind secrets. Hell bent on saving her from herself, Max is prepared to fight his way back to her side… no matter what it takes.
During life’s darkest trials, battered hearts can only be saved… by love.
