"no, don't go," he said wincing in pain, tears pricked in my eyes. unable to witness such a scene. "you need help Christian! I can't fix this on my own He is mysterious and so is his eyes, the strong aura around him makes everyone else bow down to him, but me? I desire to stand by his side Every second I spend looking at him makes it harder to look away. Every time I look at him, I freeze. shamelessly gawking at his every move his heated gaze scares everyone away but I fall in love with him all over again. I know I should be scared, I should run but even the mere thought of it brings a feeling of emptiness within me I've never had this feeling before, the feeling of wanting to keep him all to myself and never letting go, he doesn't even realize what he is doing to me. and I don't have the guts to tell this to his face, tell him how I feel. all girls want him and so do I but the sad reality? I am just a GUY.

“I’m sorry Pete, maybe we have to cancel our dinner plans tonight, there is an important meeting and I can’t miss it, maybe next time okay. lock the door before you go to bed. love you”

I sigh ‘happens every time’ I slip my phone back in my pocket

“Why the long face?” asked my best friend Hunter

I give him a small smile and he frowns and I tell him about my mom’s text

“again?” he asks looking pitiful

“Yeah,” I say in a small voice

he puts his arm around me ” you can always stay at my place. my mom loves you more than me anyways ” he rolled his eyes and I chuckled

“thanks but I need to be with Polo tonight” I make an excuse

he grins “you and your damn dog” he chuckles

polo is a golden retriever and is about 2 years old, I had him when my doctor suggested that I shouldn’t be spending time alone.

we take our regular bus to go home because I don’t know how to drive a car. and Hunter just crashed his new XUV on his neighbor’s wall which also got him grounded.

Pete Night is my name, I know not very interesting. I’m 17 years old, senior in high school. I look Asian but was born and raised in America, my height is average of 5.9 inches. I’m not a nerd neither a popular but let’s just say that I survive the day.

(A/N: this is how I have imagined Pete looks like but you can always choose to imagine someone else)

my mom raised me and I’ve never seen my dad. don’t know how he looks or if he is still alive. every time I ask about him my mom avoids the question or changes the subject. after a lot of attempts I gave up, that woman is a hard shell to crack

Hunter Steen is my childhood friend we do everything together. he is 100% American opposite than me, he is as tall as me, fair skin, Brown eyes, blonde hair, average looking body, and a total nerd, he literary went crazy when he scored 98 in chemistry and not a 100. that guy is a little extra, but my best bud. but the way we met was crazy.

(A/N: this is how I have imagined Hunter looks like but you can always choose to imagine someone else)

we were in preschool, playing in the school playground. I spotted a blonde kid under a slide digging something in the dirt. I watched him silently, observing his strange behavior, and then all of a sudden he started choking, I ran towards him and patted his back. do you know he liked a worm so bad that he ate it? like seriously!

thank God! he doesn’t like my dog.

well, that’s how we met. and maybe that little stupid accident made him stick to me like glue, cause nobody else wants to be friends with a crazy weird worm-eater and an awkward Asian guy.

but there will always be something missing and that is the presence of someone to hold on to, someone to rely on, someone to talk to without thinking of consequences, someone to lean on, someone that not will leave me and will always love me no matter what.

depressing I know, but happens to one when he has to spend his birthday alone for almost 6 years in a row. you got it right, it’s my birthday tonight and I’m gonna spend it with polo. my golden retriever like always.

I really don’t want to spend it alone this year, beggars can’t be choosers, right?

Bureche: Lovely story as always.The ending is a bit abrupt and somehow rushed. Otherwise, the story development up until the later chapters was wonderful.Still, a good dose of a cute ever after.

Memooo: As the title says. A superb author who creates characters that are so very real. I can't wait to read more of their story but I'll also be desperately sad when it's over.

Elleora40: I loved this book. The authors writing style is really fun and well paced. The dialogue is great and the sexy parts are well written.

IvonaK: Hands down, this book is my absolute favourite out of the trilogy💜. As all of Everleigh's books this one is also very well-written, well thought plot and and the same time wrapping the trilogy up. It can be read as a standalone, but I would definitely recommend to read the other books as well. I'...

By Terri: Enjoyed the story but there are several missing parts, like what did he do to her that she sent her kids away from them? What ever happened with King Jason? Lots of spelling and grammar errors but was a good read.

bwhit1230: It's gripping!

sheriyshark: I love stories like this I can't wait to read more of your stuff

suchana: I felt this story incomplete and was in a hurry to finish it

brendarambaros8: When will you get these into film production? Can't wait to see them on the big screen. You have truly outdone yourself in the storyline. Feel sorry though that Alice didn't enjoy the inheritance and the mansion. Hopefully she will go back for a short visit. But love this world that she is i...

Jason Huskey: The improvement of this series in the 6 I have read is great to see. As English is not their first language the improvement in syntax and word usage has improved immensely. Great work I would love to see each of the books expanded into full length books as the storylines have lots of potential an...
