Made of Steel by Ivy Smoak
I fell in love with Miles Young the first time I ever saw him. And he never said it, but I’m pretty sure he loved me too. Until suddenly…he didn’t. In the blink of an eye, I lost everything. But losing Miles hurt the most. Everyone I loved was taken from me. But Miles? He chose to stop loving me. Broken. Lost. Abandoned. Beaten. Ten years of pain. Ten years of torture. I’m finally free. But I’m not the same girl anymore. A fresh start in the witness protection. A new name. A new identity. I used to look at the stars and feel hope. Hope that Miles was still out there looking at the same stars. Hope that I wasn’t alone. Now all I see is darkness in the city sky. Even though my appearance has changed, deep down I know that a shadow of the girl I once was still remains. I don’t want to give up on my past. I just need something to hold on to. Anything. And the only one that could possibly understand is someone who knows what it’s like to hide in the shadows. Someone else who knows what it’s like to live behind a mask. The New York City vigilante has made it his mission to save me. But he’s 10 years too late. Miles Young already ruined me. The only thing I know for sure is that someone in this city is watching. And I just hope to God it isn’t my past catching up to me.
