Brand new stand alone from NYT and USA Bestselling Author Cora Brent. Forbidden friendships and small town secrets. Enemies-to-lovers and tragic legacies.
“Why are you trying to make me hate you?”
“Because you should.”
We should have been enemies from the beginning.
But we were children when we met and children tend to ignore such rules.
Even if the rules exist for a reason.
Because Jonathan came from a family of savage killers.
While I was born into the broken aftermath of their victims.
For one short season we were inseparable.
All it took was one terrible day to turn us into strangers.
For years I refused to even think about him.
Until he shows up here, far away from where we started.
The gentle boy I remember has grown into a volatile man with a steely glare and a different name.
He won’t admit to who he is.
Or where he comes form.
Or who we are to each other.
And I knew I shouldn’t have provoked him.
I knew I shouldn’t have touched him.
Most of all I knew I shouldn’t have given him my heart.
Yes, Jonathan and I were born to be enemies.
And maybe that’s how our story will end after all…
