Stockholm Syndrome. Two words I hated, loathed and wanted erased. But here I sat, as she
repeated the phrase, and insisted I had to understand their meaning in order to move forward.
Stockholm Syndrome, the two words would explain everything, help me on the road to recovery.
Memories surfaced, causing physical reactions I wasn’t going to tell the court ordered
therapist. She wouldn’t understand, and it sure as shit wasn’t going to help. Trusting her wasn’t
an option, and the pain from thinking about the last several months didn’t need to be spouted to a

When I first stared this book, I was unsure if i could finish it because it failed to capture my attention in the first few pages. I kept reading anyways and it was the BEST decision I've made. This book was beautifully written. The amount of emotion behind the story was overwhelming but in a pleasant way! To see what Karen had endured through all of that was miraculous. She was a warrior.
The story had a steady pace to it. Nothing was rushed or too slow. The visuals, the words created made it seem like real life.
All in all, I give Fractured Steel 5 out 5 barstools. Well done, T.J.!
I look foreword to reading more of your books.
