I’ve always been a hunter, ruthless to the core. I don’t take prisoners and I show no mercy.
Then my best friend and his family are taken. Only one member of his family survives the assault. Riley.
Her wounded eyes beg me to keep her safe, but she’s only a reminder of the failure I am. Being stuck in the same house, I’m forced to acknowledge her. Her hot body. Her sweet smile. Her seductive mouth.
I can only lie to myself for so long before I have to face the truth. It’s not just her forgiveness I want. I want to make her mine. All of her. The broken pieces as well. I want to feel her trembling under my touch. I want to hear her breaths racing as I take her.
But there’s still someone out there hunting us. He’s taking out my team and now he’s coming after Riley. Let him come. I’ll make him suffer for threatening to hurt her. I’ll kill him for murdering those closest to me.
The killing comes easy. But loving is hard.
I’ll always have enemies and to protect Riley I might just have to let her go.
