*This is the spin-off to Runaway Bride.  I recommend reading it before starting to read this one.*
    
    
    Locked in a small room with her mother since birth, Amanda quickly learned the dark side of life.  Her mother Angela, chained by her ankle, was only able to walk around the small space.
     
     When the day came and they were freed, Amanda being 4 years old, her life turned upside-down.  She had to learn to trust others, believe in them, put her life, emotion and heart on the line.
     
     She made so much progress with Emily, her psychologist of 12 years but she's having trouble with the next 'homework' Emily wants her to do, befriend Blake and learn to trust him.  Being 20 years old and still only trusting her family and her only friend, Lisa, she doesn't know where to start.  Sex doesn't need emotions and doesn't need for her heart to be involved.
     
     As for Blake, he'd seen Amanda for years without her giving him a glance.  Working with her father as a mechanic, and her coming around now and then, made him curious about her.  When they started sleeping together, he thought he had her but always waking up alone, he realized she had other things in mind.
     
     Amanda's finally an adult.  What has become of her?  Will she ever fully trust a man with her heart?  Will she find happiness or will she continue to live her life being cold, heartless like some people call her?

This is so weird I see her a four year old sometimes ten because of the epilogue but definitely not the age she is so this is really weird
Ugh This freaks me out. I need to see her as twenty and not four
so excited to read this spin-off XD you are an amazing writer
