Sometimes the past comes back to haunt you—in the most heartbreakingly beautiful way.
I fell in love hard and fast as lightning. As quick as she came into my world she was gone. Demi said she has secrets—that she’s done horrible things. Who hasn’t? I’m not going to let the past determine our future. Sometimes love lays forever at your feet and sometimes you need to fight for it. Demi is worth every damn battle we’ll have to go through. I’d burn down the world just to keep her safe. And, after what I’ve discovered, I just might have to. All I need with Demi is one more night to convince her we’re worth it. And that one night is going to cost me everything.
“We’re carbon copies of one another—crusading unholy sexual revolutions of our own making. We’re chasing the exact same thing for the exact same reasons.”
“I guess you’re right.” A smile comes and goes on her perfect lips and I want to reward her with a kiss.
“I think we should quit while we’re ahead.”
“Are you asking me to quit you before we ever begin?” She looks affronted, like I asked her to pluck the ears off a rabbit.
A part of me wants to laugh because the sex addict in her is still trying to get into my pants, and, believe me, the sex addict in me very much approves, but I swallow down the urge because she just touched my soul in the exact way I was hoping.
“I would never ask you to quit me, Emmy.” It’s not going to happen for me at least. There’s an urgency in me to protect her. I know for a fact, once I take a hit, I’ll never let her out of my bed.
