Shattered (Book One of The Progressive Trilo...
Book 1 of The Progressive Trilogy
Emma Beauxmont's entire life was focused around MMA. Her father, owning his own MMA gym, started her training from the moment she could walk. Being strong was something she prided herself in. Unfortunately for Emma, her definition of strong was altered drastically after surviving a sadistic man's version of fun that left her utterly destroyed.
The thick jagged scars that cover her body, not to mention the name Jax that was branded across her back, serve as a constant reminder of that horrible week, making it impossible to forget. Now living in a new town with her Aunt Karen and attending a new school, Emma must keep her demons locked away or risk succumbing to their torture.
Doing her best to keep herself protected against her demons, she tries to steer clear of the strange students that immediately stick to her like glue and follow Dr. Burns' orders. Between avoiding the strange townspeople and working out at The Cage, Emma can barely hold it together, then the pain starts, complicating her life even further.
Her body begins to go through random bouts of severe pain, and the only people that seem to know what's happening to her are the very people she's been trying to avoid.
"Weakness gives them pleasure, weakness gets you killed, emotions are weakness."
