Love struck me at a young age. Bertie Cooper owned my heart from the second grade right up until the moment I ruined everything.
I didn’t deserve her, not after what I did, so I lied and pushed her away. I took the coward’s way out and I broke her heart. Little did I know, I sentenced the rest of my days to an internal prison of hell.
I now find myself at a crossroads with the blonde beauty before me once more. And she still takes my breath away. Life just keeps on torturing me…
I’ve never believed in second chances, but I’d give anything for one with her.
I shake my head at Bertie’s thoughtfulness. The woman’s heart is the biggest I’ve ever seen or come across. She’s something else. I down the pills then decide on another hot shower.
One call. That’s all it took to change everything. The sweet voice on the other end of the line delivered a blow I never saw coming. Fighting for our country’s freedom and staring death in the eye was nothing compared to this news.
I will sacrifice everything to protect my family.
To save the beauty that’s been haunting my dreams.
I’m toxic. She’s pure. I can’t stay away.
I saved a life by taking another. It throttled me into a vortex of endless darkness with booze and sex as my only solace.
Maria Richards brought light back into my life even through my drunken haze. For weeks, I treated her like trash. Felt guilty as hell the moment I left her bed and breakfast.
Life has a funny way of bringing back your past sins. A second chance with Maria stumbles in my path. It’s time to right my wrongs and be the man I burn to be.
He’s quiet, a thinker who is always three steps ahead of the game—in and out of the ring.
No matter how fast he runs, there’s one thing Jag can’t escape.
