Back then the boy next door was a beautiful contradiction. An avid reader, the town brawler. My dangerous crush. Until one day he left town like a thief in the night, leaving me devastated.
A decade later, my nightmare returned. But Will Lewin was no longer the wild, charismatic boy of my past. He was a successful entrepreneur, a stranger. He was something bitter and resentful. A fully grown man…who still left me reeling.
I didn’t want his help, but I didn’t have a choice. I had to let him back in. Even if I still hated him. Even if he could never forgive me for what I’d done.
