Ian finally gets his opportunity to meet Parker, and he will do anything in his power to keep her from running away from him again. Parker has years of demons and fears bottled up inside her; she knows that if Ian finds out her secrets, she will lose him forever; no one wants damaged goods. Will Ian make her run away again or will her past catch up to her trying to pull her back.
Will Ian be the man to stand by Parker or will he turn his back on her.
★★★★☆ : Great! I liked this book!
Parker’s loss and abuse and tragedies were really heartbreaking. She suffered a lot in her youth and it was understandable when she didn’t trust anyone that crossed her path. Ian, I think he was an angel sent from above, I loved this guy so much. He’s got a big heart and a warm smile that was sure to brighten up every reader’s face. He was perfect for Parker and I loved how they perfectly fit each other.
Ahh, a bittersweet novel about love, betrayal, acceptance, trust and moving forward.
Stolen Innocence is a beautiful story set in a great plot, the characters were believable and enthralling, the author effective and efficient. This is a novel that bravely tackled and talked about harsh truths but meaningful life lessons.
This is my first book by S.M Stryker and she struck me hard with her excellent writing. I loved how she is vivid in her detail and descriptions. She has hypnotized me with her talent and words. I can’t wait to read more of her books!
Shelly (SM) married her husband 28 years ago. It was important to her to be able to stay at home to raise their four daughters.
She wasn’t an avid reader, but picked up a book a few years back and it made her re-think about writing, more as a healing process than anything else. She always knew, her life would make a good story…or soap opera but finding or making the time to write was always the issue.
Deciding not to put it off any longer, in 2014 she emailed a few of her favorite authors that gave her some very good advice; and in April of 2014, she finally sat down one day in front of her computer and started to write. Through lots of tears, she wrote her first book that had a large part of her life in the story, that book was Stolen Innocence; her second book was about her husband childhood, Never Forgotten Love.
Now she finds that she has to write, even if it gets re-written, this is her outlet her sanctuary, and in every book, she writes there is always part of her life written into it.
