I’m not saying I hate Alexander Jameson. After all, I have Jesus in my heart like the good southern girl I am. But if I did hate anyone? Alex would definitely make the cut. I have one, singular move in this never-ending game of torment he forces me to play. I avoid Alex with every fiber of my being. The less I have to see of his beautiful (ahem, I mean stupid) face, the better. It’s not just a coincidence that we haven’t had a single class together since 7th grade. It’s entirely by my design—an agenda of self-preservation, if you will. But fate must have other plans when the place I volunteer at unknowingly assigns me to mentor Alex’s little sister. Now that avoiding Alex is no longer an option, I quickly find myself in dangerous waters with him. Sink or swim, I’m not going down without a fight.

Author's Note:

Thank you for taking the time to check out my first completed book.

I'm sure many of my fellow writers can relate, but it has been an incredibly long journey for me to find the confidence needed to both finish this story and put it out there for others to read. I'm honored that you are among the first!

I welcome your thoughts, reactions, and constructive feedback. ♥

THIS IS AN 18+ BOOK that contains mature content that might offend some viewers, including bully themes, explicit (pretty darn spicy) sexual scenes, and a frustratingly gorgeous antagonist who unapologetically uses F-Bombs for adjectives. You have been warned!

Stephanie: Sehr schön geschrieben

Tamara: Mir gefällt die Geschichte

Molly: I wasn’t sure if I wanted to start this one as the characters are a bit younger but I wanted to see if this poor girl would finally be able to be free of abuse and open to accept love (family) and be able to heal. It’s is great so far, minimal spelling errors, I think the Spanish isn’t necessary ...

Shakeicha Young: Loved this story

Amy: The plot, as usual, is excellent.Author still needs to work on describing people, scenes, buildings, etc (fuller if you will)…. In order to slow down the fast pace & provide a backdrop for the action.For example, the first time she walks around Blake’s pack- her impressions… big, small, beautiful...

Saloni Acharya: The whole series is so good. It’s like you can’t keep it down without reading it the whole way and then start the next one. Time flies and you don’t realise it’s late night and you have to go to sleep 😂. The characters are awesome with strong plots and love every couple. 😍🥰
