Emily Donovan didn't know love, she didn't know gentle and her future wasn't hers to own. Because HE owned her. There is only so much one soul can take before it is broken beyond repair and she had reached that milestone long ago.

Braiden Montgomery had secrets, secrets that would see a special place in hell reserved just for him. He was trying to make amends, trying to find his own form of redemption when a waif of a girl with jet black hair and pale blue eyes seized his heart.

Emily's soul had been tortured by men like Braiden, so trusting the dark haired Dom would be one of the most difficult things she would ever do. For a man with skills like Braiden, keeping 'Em' safe would be a piece of cake. Bringing her frozen heart back to life might just prove impossible though.

My Review

"My name is Emily Maree Donovan, and I am not a possession, I am a person." 

This is Emily's story…..

Stubbon, fearless and full of dreams, a young Emily leaves Claymont to find freedom from all the anger and hurt her parents death caused. But all Em finds on her journey is captivity...


BUT then saved..
What happens when the man who saves you, has the power to break you all over again?

Braiden, has his own past and demons he deals with. When he saves Emily, he finds himself feeling things that he shouldn't be. But he can't help feeling more drawn to her the more he becomes to know her. But when Em not only asks, but needs his control, Braiden steps in to take on the roll, but at what cost?

While a part of me hungered for his touch, I was afraid of it, too.

Emily and Braidens story is a slow build in the sense that Emily needs time to heal and grow into the woman that she didn't get to be. And that itself takes time.
Braiden is on a mission to capture the man that broke Emily, and will do anything to find him. Even leaving a struggling Emily behind.

When Braden leaves her, Emily must learn to cope for herself, while she has a rough start, she soon finds her way and a once shy, scared Emily, turns into a strong, angry Em. Then Braiden returns and soon they find themselves fighting the pull between them.

A feeling began to burn deep within my soul, a feeling that made my skin tingle with a new type of awareness. It made my heart beat hard and fast.

 Can these two find a HEA with their history? Can Braiden be the man, (he really wants to be) for Emily, and will Emily's Tourtured soul be bought back from the darkness that surrounds her?

I understand sin, Em, I understand what it feels like to be beyond redemption."

Kirsty Dallas is an instant read Author for me, I love her hard. I could NOT wait to get my hands on this one. I knew I would love Braiden but I didn't think I would fall soooo hard. 
While the subject matter at times was hard to read, (Emily lives through a tragedy no one she have to go through) Braiden always shined throughout. 
He gave Em his strength when she lacked her own. Through Braiden's love, Em was able to break down the barriers and pain that kept her from letting anyone get too close. Emily never knew love could be this way: nurturing, comforting, and safe.

His reluctance to be Em's master made me fall, his passion and patience for her and her doubt made me fall. His sweetness and bossiness made me fall.  This man is astounding! I have such a deep love and respect for him. He really is the epitome of perfect…. AND The Mantra… I DIE !

"I am not a toy to be played with, I am a living soul. I do not need a master because I have the strength to be my own master. I should only be treasured, loved, and protected and I will accept no less. I survived my captivity, and I will continue to survive and fight until my life is my own once more." 

What a beautiful and emotional story. I loved every part of it.
Kirsty Dallas once again knocks it out of the park. Definitely a must read!

About the Author

I'm just a little Aussie girl with a big imagination, so much to write and so little time to do it. When I'm not writing (or reading) I am kept smiling and sane (for the most part) by my 5 year old daughter. She is the light in my world. I have a wonderfully supportive family who keep me completely grounded. Trust me, they will never let any success go to my head!! And I love them for it. I enjoy ice cold ciders, barbeques, music and art. I hate cooking, in fact I think I have major kitchen allergies. My feet rarely grace anything other than flip-flops and even in the middle of a hot Aussie summer, I love my jeans!!! To sum me up in a few words (and you know how hard just a few words is for an author) ~ easy going, laid back, dreamy and passionate.

I hope you all love reading my novels as much as I love writing them.
