In one day your life can go from amazing to total distruction and for me it’s going to change forever. Who am I? My name is PFC Jameson Carter and I am a United States Marine, or I was until a bomb detonated and took half of me with it. The only thing that kept me alive was the woman I had waiting back for me at home. 

How do you go from being a complete person to being half of something? For me, I have help, but how can I be anything more than half of what I used to be? Then when the one person you count on, the person you lived for leaves you how do you react? 

For Samantha Blalock life is easy, she helps repair people like me, the people who lose limbs. Something isn’t the same though, she’s changed. See I’ve known Samantha for years. She’s hiding something. Can we help each other through these trying times in our lives? Or does the fact remain that we are both irreparable?

My name is CPL Blake Johnson, and I am a Marine. You would think that my life was easy because of my status, but you couldn’t be more wrong. War is hell on earth, the things you see and the things you feel. My life is haunted by the things I saw while on deployment. I will never be able to see the light fading from the people’s eyes I murdered. My life is now determined by my mind, depicted by sounds, colors, and things that make me less of a man. I wake up every day to fears of what will trigger the turmoil that sends me into overdrive. If it weren’t for one woman, I would have no sunshine to wake up to. Nothing to keep me out of the hell hole I have dug for myself. Anna has her own demons as well, but together we may find out that we are not as inconsolable as we both feel.

My name is Skylar Montgomery, and I always promised myself I would never end up like my mother. Relying on a man that thought beating a woman was the only way to go, and for a while there I hadn’t ended up like her. Now, at twenty-one years old, I have become just like my mother, until that one night. I left, made my way to my grandmothers in the small town of Hickory and I never looked back. Things couldn’t be better in this small town, until he walks into my life, and pretty much turns it upside down. 

Who is he? Luke Blalock, all American country boy with beautiful blue eyes and blonde hair that could make any girl swoon. He’s a gentleman, but he also attracts all the girls, and I just don’t know if I can compete with it. I do what I have to, to make ends meet; but when and if he finds out what it is I do will he still look at me with the desire I see in his eyes, or will he find it unbelievable?
