SWEET BABY by Sharon Sala is one of those books you never forget. Emotionally compelling and haunting, your heart will break for Tory and for Brett. The love they have for one another is the only thing that gets them through their troubles and Tory's traumatic past, as their relationship is tested to the limits.
(You can buy it in ebook, but I have this one with the original cover on my keeper shelf.)
Photojournalist Tory Lancaster has taken the photo of her life: not one that brings her fame and riches, but one that triggers her memories—bad memories.
Abandoned as a little girl and bounced from foster home to foster home, Tory has finally found love with Brett Hooker, an investigator for the Oklahoma County District Attorney's Office.
She has no memories before the day she came home to an empty house, but the crowd photo she took, with the old man and his distinctive tattoo, sets off nightmares and glimpses of a past she has refused to remember.
When her dark thoughts start taking over, to the point of madness, Brett is her lifeline to sanity and they both know that she must remember in order to forget.
