What I got was a broody, enigmatic demigod with an electrifying touch and a mysterious past.
We were night and day in every way possible, not an ounce of anything in common, and yet, I wanted him in the worst way.
It didn’t matter that he was emotionally unavailable or that he was exactly the kind of man who would give my father a coronary should I dare to bring him home. It didn’t matter that his heart was wrapped in barbed wire or that he made me promise never to fall for him.

They say a single moment can change the entire trajectory of your life. But looking back, I never could have imagined all the ways my world would change the moment it collided with his.
I learned too late that he kept his past a secret for a reason.
