Publication Date: September 2016
Genres: New Adult, Contemporary Romance
Two friends. Two lovers.
Dark pasts. Uncertain futures.
Mindless passion. Wondrous pain.
One remarkable love. One powerful friendship on the verge of being torn apart. This is Knox Jackson and Kasha Davies’ story about the cost of being number one.
His confession was terrifying, though welcoming all the same. Love wasn’t something I embraced because it could be a danger to the soul, even as it crushed the heart.
I tried to keep my head forward; in fact, I remained still with my head tilted downward and hands still clutching at the wheel. Teardrops blurred my vision as they tumbled down one after the other.
“Please leave, Knox,” I mumbled in a coarse tone.
“I can’t,” he replied, placing his palms against my car window. For all the strength he’d shown from day to day, Knox couldn’t hide his emotions this once. “I love you more than anything, more than anyone else. I swear to you. Open up. Let me prove it. Open up, Kash.” He continued on in this way, while the tears kept soaking up my face and tee shirt.
I lost count of how often or how many pleas he made. But he must’ve known that he had me. His declarations expanded my mind and sped up my heart. Not only had I fallen for an incredible guy, I’d apparently captured his heart over the years. And now, he was totally mesmerizing me with his words. Tiny sobs escaped through my lips. I tried to stop the flow. It was useless. I gripped the steering wheel and unlocked the door. Taking one final breath, I set aside my guard.
