You Own Me
by Shiloh Walker
It had always been her…
Ten years had passed since the doors slammed shut behind Decker Calhoun, taking away his freedom, but more importantly, locking him away from Elizabeth Waters, the only woman he’d ever loved—the woman he’d given up everything for.
The day he was sentenced, he’d looked at her and said, No regrets, Lizzie. But he lied, because he did have one. Although he’s been out of jail for three years now, he was a year too late. Lizzie never knew how he felt and just months before he was released, she found somebody else and it’s too late.
Or maybe not. It seems that Lizzie’s boyfriend wants an open relationship and two can play at that game. Now all Decker has to do is convince Lizzie that he’s the better man…and has been all along.
Decker spent time in prison and he doesn't regret it. The only thing he does regret is having to leave Lizzie behind. When he gets out the two remain friends but he wants more as he always has. She has a boyfriend and Decker doesn't' want to ruin things. Now her boyfriend has decided they should have an open relationship and that is great news to Decker. It's his chance to show Lizzie she doesn't need her boyfriend and to show her he is there for her.
Lizzie is a smart woman and she keeps a lot of stuff bottled up inside. She has needs and wants but puts them last. She stays wither boyfriend Noel I think more so she isn't alone as to actually loving him. Decker may be a rough guy but I would take him in a heartbeat. He will do anything to protect Lizzie. He doesn't feel he is good enough for her and wants her to be happy even if that is with someone else.
First off Noel is a jerk and I wanted to cut a little part of him off. He is constantly putting Lizzie down and trying to change her. Now he wants to keep her and have more women. I loved Decker from the start. He puts up with crap from a lot of people do to his record and they don't even try to look and see what the facts are. Lizzie at times did get on my nerves as she seems afraid to be alone. Her and Decker have always cared for each other but it never seemed to work out. There is lots of sizzle in this story as they finally begin to open up and see each other after Noel shows what a jerk he is. If you want a hot little story try this one.
