Adrian was my first love.
The boy I’d always compared all the others to.
But now he’s a man and he’s holding me captive.
I’d heard the stories for years but I didn’t believe them.
My Adrian couldn’t have done the things they say he did to all the other girls.
But now that I’m with him I see that it’s true.
I know he’s a monster … and I’m terrified of him.
But I’m also terrified of the feelings I still have for him … and what those feelings mean about me.
Brooklyn was the only one who ever saw my true self.
But that was seven years ago … and it might as well have been a dream.
I had to leave her behind. It was the only way I could protect her from the truth about my family and our business.
But now a debt must be paid and she’s been brought here.
And my father has ordered me to break her … to ruin her.
If I follow his orders it will destroy me.
But if I don’t … my father will.
