Excerpt

“And just where do you think you’re going?” a deep voice slurred from somewhere near the door. I didn’t need to look up to know who it was.

“I’m going home, Silas,” I said, fighting back the tears that were threatening to run down my face as I tried to fit too many textbooks into my backpack.

“Like fuck you are,” he said, making his way toward me.

I stood to my full height and looked at him. My heart dropped at seeing him this way. “Silas, you’re drunk.” I could smell the marijuana coming off of him in waves. “And probably high. You should call it a night.”

I didn’t know why I was trying to give him advice. I should have told him to go fuck himself and be done with it.

“I’ll call it a night if you call it one with me,” he drawled, moving in closer to me.

“Get away from me, Silas,” I said, trying to feign confidence but he just laughed.

“You don’t want that, Sky. I saw the way you looked at me. The way you looked at her. You wanted that to be you, hm?”

I didn’t think his comment warranted a response. Either that or I was too choked up to say something back. I picked up my backpack and tried to lift it onto my shoulders, but even in his inebriated state he was quick. The bag tumbled to the floor as he pushed it away and I felt my back press into the wall behind me.

“Admit it, Sky. You. Want. Me.” He was so close to me now. His lips were ghosting against my neck and his hand was pressing against my hip. 

I hated this.

I hated him.

I hated the way he made me feel.

And I hated the way he smelled like someone else’s perfume.

“I can smell her on you,” I seethed at him through grit teeth. 

He pulled back, lifting his face so that his eyes were even with mine. His fingers moved up, making me shiver on their ascent before pinching my chin. I grimaced as I wondered whether it was the hand that had, minutes before, been knuckle deep in another woman’s cunt.

“You wish it were you, don’t you?” he drawled.

“No,” I bit back, but I was a fucking liar. Truth was, I wanted Silas. I wanted him bad. And I wanted him all to myself. I didn’t want to share him. Not with some bimbo. Not with anyone. I loved the way him and I had developed our study routine. I loved that out of everyone in his life, except for maybe his mother, I knew him the best.

He had hot edges and a frozen center, but at least I knew all the secrets he kept hidden there were for me and me alone. But I didn’t know how to say any of this. Worse than that, I didn’t know how to admit any of this. I hated and wanted him at the same time. He said I was a contradiction but that was only because he tore me in two.

MY REVIEW:

Moody and emotional! Not a lot of bullying just a mean rich boy that treats a poor girl horribly in public but differently behind closed doors. This spans ten years give or take in flashbacks to high school when bad boy Silas bullies new girl Skyler to uphold his image as the king. He’s a sour guy with a sad home life, a bad attitude but a beautiful exterior. She’s has an interesting physical condition that’s the bane of her existence. The two have a love/hate relationship with a few angsty, poignant encounters during high school that ends with a nasty event that leaves the two in tatters. Ten years later and a chance encounter has the two in close proximity again and old feelings are resurrected. Then drama hits and an old adversary pops up to cause trouble with a few strange twists. It sort of fell apart during the drama with the unrealistic business aspect relative to a minor. For me it was a little slow and long but I was all in wanting to see how the romance played out. There was a nice ending that leaves our couple in a good place with friends and loved ones. Overall it was an enjoyable read with an interesting couple in Silas and Skyler. I haven’t read the previous books in this series but based on this one I will. Worth the read!
