A steamy and angsty coming of age stand-alone that will pull at every heart string. Twists and turns that keep you on your toes, and characters who are forced to open up old wounds from their past.
Jasper rolled into my life like a loose wagon wheel—taking out everything in his path just to get to me. It was all for show, until it wasn’t. No part of me was prepared to be swept away. After all, gravity is supposed to keep us grounded. He had other plans, and didn’t give a damn about the chaos we were about to unleash. They say secrets are like a silent death. Only, I never knew the depth of it until now.
I never saw Blakely coming, but when I did, there was no chance I was letting her get away. She’s a walking disaster, always leaving a trail of smoke in her wake. And me? I’m the sorry bastard who kept following her—that is, until she sucked the air right out of my lungs, just to keep her own filled. She’s a queen through and through. A spoiled rich girl that reaps no consequences, until she did. I’m that consequence, and I know her dirty little secret.
The Rules Will Be Broken!
I’ve got everything going for me—the grades, the scholarship, the goals. I’ve had it all planned out for years. Then she came along. On the outside she has it all together—on the inside she’s damaged goods. She needs me. I just have to decide if she’s worth everything I’m about to lose.
I came to this town to escape the claws of my past. A simple life in a small town—I just want to live under the radar and blend in. I was doing just that until Knox caught my eye. They say when you know, you know—that we can’t help who we fall in love with. The rules are pretty simple, so why am I breaking them all? I’m a teacher, and he’s my student—this can’t end well. More than just rules are going to be broken, I just hope his heart can be mended when it’s all said and done.
Easy to Hate. Hard to love.
Love causes hurt, hurt causes hate.
I’ve learned this the hard way.
I fell for a guy who is made up of angry bones, a dark heart, and eyes that can see my soul.
One night changed everything.
Now when he looks into my heart, he pulls out the weakness and he uses it to his advantage.
He taunts me, breaks me down, and is trying to destroy my first year away at college.
So why can’t I stay away?
Why am I so drawn to the boy who used to be my friend—the guy who broke my heart, and the man who wants to destroy me?
All it took was one night for me to see Harper for what she really is—a fake. An imposter who cut me open, forced me to bare my soul, then tossed me aside without even sewing up my black heart.
She was the first girl to ever stir emotion inside of me.
It’s been a year, but I still feel the sting of what she did to me.
No matter how hard I try, I can’t escape her.
Now we are away at college and she thinks she’s still part of this group we’ve had since we were kids.
Little does she know, she’s been cut, and it’s her turn to feel the pain.
