I’m not done with women. But I’m f*cking done with love.
I lost everything and quit the Marines a broken man.
They made me deal with it, and I came out stronger than ever. Solid, powerful, rich and with an inaccessible heart – because some things can’t be fixed.
Women are a pleasure that can be bought like many others. I can have them all, but I cannot fall in love.
Which is why I have to stay away from her.
She’s dangerous. She fuels a raging need inside of me.
But I want her. I want to break her and give her a glimpse of my own darkness.
This girl is playing with fire, and she doesn’t even know it.
I can’t screw this up. My first interview, my first chance to prove myself at this newspaper.
His story promises to be perfect – but he won’t share it with me. Sealed and withdrawn, he erupts with fury when I try to get closer to him.
But I’m not giving up that easily.
He’s drop dead gorgeous, but his sinister eyes speak of menace and pain. I want to know more about it, about him.
My interest may no longer be purely professional, but I can’t ignore this dangerous attraction.
His shell is as hard as the muscles that adorn his scarred body – and I’m drawn to it like a moth to the flame.
