The Way I Used to Be by Amber Smith

Eden is only 14 years old when her innocence is ripped away from her. She is left broken and in a tangle of bloody sheets after her brothers bestfriend, Kevin rapes her.

He sneaks into her room like a thief and robs her of everything that made, Eden who she was. Threats force her to keep his secret and she is faced with seeing him over and over again.

This one night changes the face of, Eden, her very being. She is left broken, angry, empty and forever altered. She uses her own sexuality in an attempt to take back control of what she lost.

Eden destroys relationships with those she treasures the most to mask her own fears and to avoid making herself vulnerable.

This is an emotionally driven novel is told in four parts. It is the most realistic written fiction I have read this year.
