Damaged Pieces (Cape Isle, #2)
“When something is damaged or broken, the pieces can be put back together, but they will never be the same.”
KATIE: When I was left to raise my daughter alone, I decided dating just wasn't worth it. I never wanted my daughter to experience the kind of heartbreak only a man can give you and I didn't have the time, until Nicholas Sinclaire came walking into my life with his charming smile and his mischievous eyes. I just wish I would have known how it was going to end.
NICK: I knew she was it for me the moment I met her, but I had to leave. I had one more tour to do overseas and then I could come home to her for good. Little did we know, I wouldn't come back the same man. I was damaged beyond repair, so I pushed them away and hurt them. It didn't take me long to realize the mistake I had made. Now, I will stop at nothing to get them back in my life, but will Katie want my Damaged Pieces?

“Get out,” he whispers in a low voice.
I should have seen this coming, I should have prepared myself. Men never stay, especially when things get hard. I'm trying to remind myself that he is going through a lot right now, but it still hurts. I'm always the one who loves more, that's my problem. Even though he is breaking my heart and being so cruel to me, I can't find it in myself to hate him.
I stand from my chair and look down at him. “So this is it, Nick?”
He doesn't answer, but his jaw clenches.
“Maybe one day I'll be what you need, but don't wait too long because the day you decide you want me, may be the day I've finally given up,” I whisper.
He looks back at me and I can see the pain in his eyes. I give him a short nod and turn towards the door.
How is this one?
