“’Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.” … I call bullsh*t. I’ve loved and lost. Loss is too painful.
I’m done with love. My heart is hardened and my fate is sealed. I’m going to be on my own forever, just the way I like it.
… Until Nicole slides into my parking space and I see red.
Anger, desire, love, hate. Since when do they feel so similar?
When I walk away from her, I think it’s over.… and then she strolls into my office for her first day of work.
With every sassy remark and every flick of her eyebrow, she tears down the walls around my heart. Brick by brick, she annihilates my defenses.
She could be the one to save me… until a secret from my past threatens to tear us apart.
I’m guilty, and the only way to save her is to condemn myself.
