My name is Ford Shaw. I’m more than Raven and Sin’s best friend, and one of the pretty monsters who took down a crime boss. Once I was just a boy desperately in love with the wrong girl.
I’ve tried to move on for years. Leave behind the pain and suffering Tessa and I put each other through and find something real. For a minute I thought I found it, but no matter what I do, I can’t escape her. One day I’ll work her out of my system. Then maybe we can stop this toxic game we keep playing.
We torture each other and make a big display of being with other people. Every guy she touches, or allows to touch her, often right in front of me, is like a knife right to my heart.
Not to be outdone, I play her game. No one will ever accuse me of giving less than everything. These are her rules after all, and I’ve always been competitive.
It’s been years since we gave in to the desire that consumes us. I might have put a lot of women between us, but my body will never forget the feel of her against me.
We were so young then. I thought her being my stepsister would keep us apart forever, but it’s the damage we did trying to resist each other that sealed our fate. And yet, despite the ways we’ve betrayed each other over and over I can’t let her go.
What we have could almost be love if it didn’t hurt so much.
My heart, black and broken as it may be, will always belong to the girl with sad eyes. Are we damaged beyond repair, or do we dare try one more time?
