I grew up in a cult, one that kept me completely sheltered from the real life. They even forced me to marry at the age of fourteen.
I was trapped, and life was utter hell until I was offered a way out. I spent months healing and finally being happy for the first time ever.
Then he came into my life.
Maverick rooted himself deep inside my heart from the second I met him. From his cocky grin to his alpha male attitude, I was in love with him.
More importantly, he kept me safe when I needed him most.
The second I laid eyes on her, I knew she was the one I had waited for my whole life. All I saw was her.
But everything came to a head when her past resurfaced.
The second I saw the fear in her eyes, something inside me snapped. It became my life’s mission to find every single person who hurt her.
After all, I am a Grim Sinner for a reason.
It’s time to Reap.

I guess if I truly want this, then I just need to be completely honest. If I get serious with someone, they are going to have to see me naked someday.
Unbuttoning my pants, my hands shaking as I do so, I watch Maverick’s face for his reaction. But right now he has none, he is just watching my every move.
My nose burns as I try not to cry. This is such a big thing for me; I am beyond putting myself out there.
I push down my pants, leaving me in my black underwear. I grip the bottom of my shirt, throwing it onto the side by side.
My back to Maverick as I can’t look at him right now. I look out into the trees where I see a deer staring back at us.
Hands touch my forearms from behind, “Darlin.” His voice is deeper than I have ever heard it.
I gather every single nerve that I have, turning around to face him. His eyes are filled with anger but his face is soft, his hands tender on mine.
“Darlin, it’s killing me seeing that fear in your eyes.” He cups my face, “One thing you should never have with me is fear. You are perfect. Every piece of you.”
I close my eyes, holding back the tears. He pulls me to him, lifting me off of the ground and walks with me in his arms into the water.
