Naomi was just out of a failed marriage, living on her mother’s couch, when a wolf in sheep’s clothing swooped in to save her. He helped Naomi move out, got her a job, and lavished her with expensive gifts. However, once they got an apartment of their own, Naomi’s abuser began to show signs of coercive control.
