Genre: New Adult Romance
Publishing Date: December 5th, 2017
Fate plays matchmaker with my heart by repeatedly putting Gavin Volk in my path. Our mutually insane attraction is instant, captivating me from the first time we meet.
The wickedly gorgeous guy knows how to set my body on fire with just one look.
And he’s there for me like no guy has been before.
Only, he says he’s not boyfriend material, not good enough for me. But he won’t give me
a reason why.
If rumors at our college are to be believed, he’s dangerous, connected to the mob. I know he would never hurt me physically, but mentally he’s shielded by secrets he doesn’t trust me enough to share.
Yet, every time he kisses me, I feel it deep down in my soul.
Just when I think I’ve broken down his barriers, he builds a fortress between us again.
Though I want him.
And I know he wants me.
His secrets keep me far from his heart.
I should walk away with my pride intact.
I can’t keep allowing him in my life only to be shattered when he walks away.
Either he proves his love by trusting me or he needs to let me go for good.
However, my greatest fear is that if he tells me what he’s hiding, will I be strong enough to stay?
“If you want to walk me, you can. But I can make it on my own.”
“Lead the way.”
I had to adjust myself; it was going to be an uncomfortable walk. When I glanced up, I got an eye full of her fantastic ass and had to catch up if I didn’t want fucking blue balls tonight.
When we were side by side, she cast me a look. “And don’t think you’re talking your way up to my room. It’s a boy-free zone.”
I chuckled. “You’ve made your point. Believe it or not, I don’t have to beg.”
It was her turn to laugh. “Your ego knows no bounds.”
“It’s not ego, Angel. It’s a fact. And though you are on a short list of girls who have turned me down since before high school, it’s cool.”
She stopped in front of a red brick building, and now I knew which building held her dorm. I filed that away for future reference.
“Well, it’s healthy you learn that not all women are susceptible to your charms.”
Her warm palm reached up and patted my cheek. I captured her wrist and turned it to press a kiss to the skin at the juncture of her hand and arm.
“Never say never, Angel. I might corrupt you yet.”
