Heart In Wire

This book has spoilers in it if you haven't read the By A Thread series yet, you may not want to read the synopsis. This is a companion book to that series and I highly suggest reading it first.

Have you ever been involved in an epic love story where you wound up alone? Have you devoted yourself so completely to someone that you lost yourself in their abyss?

Patrick Greer spent the past five years revolving around El. He fought like hell to not feel the emotions for her that were hidden deep in his gut, until he couldn't anymore. He was so sure of them, of her, of what they were to each other, until he wasn't.

Patrick couldn't even imagine the things he'd done for her, with her and to her. El broke him.

He was a liar, a friend, a lover, a fixer, a runner and a killer.

Now he had to figure out who he was without her.

*There are adult situations, tons of cussing and you may enjoy this book with an adult beverage.

Excerpt 5
Difficult memories filled his sleep.  He willed them to stop.  These were memories he’d worked to forget, to place somewhere in a box next to the memories of his brother being shot and his dad leaving.  Images and thoughts that made him so desperate and full of despair that he refused to acknowledge he had them.  He’d been able to keep the emotions and need for El from bubbling to the surface when she lived with him and she was seeing George.  Millie filled the void in his bed, but couldn’t stop the ache in his heart.  He’d denied that ache, ignored it and wished it would go away, but it remained, lingering. When she was shot, hating him, everything changed. The wall he’d carefully constructed around his heart fell from the blast that was the realization she may never be coming home.  He remembered feeling utterly helpless and shattered by that simple fact.  He remembered thinking she might be dead because he stopped feeling her that day.   
He realized he couldn’t breathe without her.
