Taking What Is Mine

The last time I cared for a woman, life got in the way. Now I live for my work and that'll have to do. 
I know who I am and what I want. It's a tall order. One most women could never fill.

So much for love.

And then Christy Harris walked into my life.

My experience with men can be summed up in one word. Awful. From an absent father to an abusive boyfriend, willing to chase me across the country to maintain control of my life. As a newcomer in a small town, I'm more isolated than ever. Just the way he wants it.

So much for happiness.
