He was the myth and the legend of our small town. But no one knew the truth... except me.
My childhood was stolen by a monster. I've forgotten what love feels like. What happiness feels like. What hope feels like. I am numb.
He's possibly as damaged as I am. Maybe even more. Scarred just as much on the inside as the outside. Just like me. He doesn't speak. He doesn't smile. He hides in the woods like an animal. I should be scared of him. But I'm not. He's the only one that has ever made me feel. And I want to make him feel, too.
Wow! I honestly didn't think I could be moved again the way Torn moved me but then came Tied.
What an amazing story and emotional read.
Tyler is one of 5 brothers & one sister, he's an outcast in society by choice, he's physically scarred, emotionally shut off and broken, consumed with guilt over things that happened as a teenager and now as an adult chooses to live a solitary life in the woods despite his family’s pleas. Tyler is the happiest alone and away from the stares and judgemental whispering s of others.
Holly was abducted as a child, 8 years old taken by an evil,sick man who kept her hidden away to use as his own toy in whatever way he chose. Abused mentally and physically,starved and alone Holly for 10 years only had the comfort of a dog with no bark and her fairy tale stories from her school backpack.
Tyler became Holly's saviour when he hears noises in the woods underground.
Holly to society becomes the girl from the hole while Tyler had always been the guy with a scarred face who wears masks and only visits town at night. Fate has a firm hand on them throughout their lives and fate brings them together giving them both one enchanting story to tell.
I don't want to spoil the plot by going into details but what I will say is how the plot developed was moving, so moving and I was completely captivated by both characters.
Carian Cole has once again written a story that took me on a journey that evoked in me so many emotions I was glued to the pages, desperately wanting a happy ending for two tortured souls and she didn’t disappoint.
Looking forward to the next book, Carian's writing just gets better and better, I just can't get enough.
Recommended read that can be read as a standalone and is told in dual pov.
