Finally more to the love story of Alec and Brynn. Even though I wish the two books were one book, it had no affect on how amazing to the story is. I found myself crying along with both of them as they struggle to find themselves and each other.
Katelynn is awsome. I love how someone so young can be a typical teen one minute and then down to Earth and wise beyond her years the next.
I am hoping that Aric gets his story told too. He deserves a happily ever after too.
He was my weakness.
The one desire I fought the hardest, but craved the most. There was an unexplainable pull whenever I was near him. I was addicted to him. I was crazed by his touch. I longed for his kiss.
Until he broke me…
He was cold and callus. What we shared was nothing but meaningless acts. A facade. I was a ploy in his game of control. I had no choice but to move forward. I had to forget the impact he had on me. More importantly, I had to forget him. Only that was easier said than done…
Each night when I closed my eyes, I’d hear the kind words he’d whisper, I’d feel his gentle caress as he held me close. But the dreams always ended the same. I would see him walking away, without looking back.
She tested my limits from the start.
The more I fought the attraction, the more intense it became. She defied every rule I set for myself and challenged my need for control. She made me want the things I had denied myself for too long, so I did the worst possible thing.
I broke her heart.
What should have been my way out only left me feeling bare. My desire to have her magnified. It was time to pick up the shattered pieces of my life and face the harsh reality of my choices.
But my biggest fear of all was that with Brynn, it was now too late to go back…
I redirect my gaze to my brother only this time I push back. “You wanna hit me, hit me.” I lean in closer to him, ensuring he reads the determination in my eyes. “If you want to yell and fucking scream then do it, but know one thing, you will be moving out of my way so that I can get to her. Because not you or anyone else for that matter is gonna to keep me from her.”
“Noone but Mandy that is,” he adds just before releasing his hold on me.
“I told you it wasn’t like that.”
“You were with her all day,” he adds. “Yet you never felt the need to tell anyone about the plans I’m sure you’ve had for days to meet her. If that’s not guilt for doing something you knew you shouldn’t then I don’t know what is.”
We stand there, head to head in the small space near the entry door to the room. Aric glaring at me as if at any moment he would attack, and at that point I wasn’t so sure I would stop him. I felt defeated because he was right, I fucked up.
“Alec,” the sound of Brynn’s voice causes both of us to move toward her, as I quickly survey the damage. No longer did her stomach show the evidence of our child and the reality of what had taken place while I was unreachable hit me.
