Description: A short piece of creative writing about a young couple and the first time things go horribly wrong. This story is prue fiction, but the domestic abuse that's it's subject matter is real: "He never imagined that bare knuckles could do so much damage. Peter had watched enough TV shows and actions movies to have an idea of what a strong punch could do – while channel surfing he once ran into a mixed martial arts match and saw the busted lip and shut left eye of a man with a name he couldn’t pronounce.

A fantastic read with a story that kept me going. The writing a rich and detailed and the characters pop off the page. The setting was immersive and the ending was satisfying. What else do you want in a mystery!

A well-told fun story. I don't read romance novels, so to run through a story with defined characters I cared about and a small story that kept me interested, was quite a nice surprise. Would recommend to anyone looking for a fun read.
