I’ve always lived a charmed and carefree life. I was the popular jock in school, the one who could have any girl I wanted.
She was the one I never saw coming.
Pure and innocent, Avery became the only thing that mattered. But the time came for me to fulfill my destiny. To protect her from a life she didn’t belong in, I gave up the one thing I loved most in this world: Her.
Now I learn the sacrifice I made years ago costs us both dearly. I left her defenseless in a world that stole her innocence.
I was the good girl, the one who never stepped out of line, the obedient daughter. Forever living under the shadow of my mother and the scrutiny of my stepfather.
He was a player and rebellious, the one I never expected.
Liam filled a void in my life and gave me promises of a future.
Then, in one night, he ripped it all away, leaving me broken.
It was only the beginning of my nightmare.
After years apart, Liam and his family now hold my future in their hands as they try to rebuild a girl who no longer cares to live.
