I was a different man two years ago. I was soft, too easy-going.
Look where that got me. Death and destruction, and all of it my fault. I wasn’t going to let that happen again.
Now all I wanted to do was fight, drink and fuck.
I couldn’t imagine that anything short of retribution for the past could make me want to turn back into the man I was before.
I certainly never imagined someone like Eva…
When my brother and I moved to this small little town to take over my Uncle’s bar, I thought that it was just going to be like a little mini vacation from our lives.
What I didn’t expect was to be threatened almost as soon as we got there. And I certainly didn’t expect protection from that threat to come from a man like Will Bowers.
Dark, violent and completely gorgeous. He’s the complete opposite of the type of guy I’m usually attracted to, but then again, I’ve never met a man like him before. My instinct tells me to stay far away, but at the same time, I can’t ignore the feeling that there is more to him than his rough exterior. I see something behind all of that pain in his eyes. Something that draws me forward.
Besides, my friend Laura is always telling me that I spend too much time with my head buried in my books, and that I need to actually lift it up and live a little.
Maybe she’s right, but I don’t think this is what she had in mind.
