Judd Asher was taken from his front garden when he was just four years old. After an extensive search he was never found.
Twenty-one years after a random call out, Judd is found chained and beaten in the basement of an old rundown farmhouse where he has lived the life of an animal for the last twenty-one years.
Kloe Grant is assigned as Juddâs personal therapist. Itâs her job to rehabilitate him, to guide him back to normal life. But as Juddâs only emotion is rage, Kloe finds it both heart-breaking and challenging mending a soul thatâs not only broken but caged inside him by the demons of his past.
However, when Kloeâs relationship with her patient raises some eyebrows, Kloe canât fight against the powers that want to see her fail, and with an arm behind her back, she walks away, leaving behind a man who has come to live life again for her.
Four years later Judd, now known as Anderson Cain, the darkest and most formidable cage fighter in a world where violence and crime are the only way to keep breathing, Judd finds thereâs not a lot in life that can abate the rage that still twists and prowls beneath his skin.
Not until a chance encounter brings him to her door. To the woman with the bluest eyes and the most stunning smile, the woman who took his hand in the darkness and led him through the door into the sun.
But Kloe Grant left him when he needed her the most. She took the only shred of hope and trust he had left and annihilated it. She starved his belief, and she fed his fury.
She owes him. And heâs going to make sure that this time, she pays. In blood. In lust. In pain. And with her soul.
