Taron Vaughn. He's a guy from my past I never thought I'd see again. Star quarterback. King of the game. A cocky jerk that at one point in my life took up available space in my heart until a kiss destroyed us.
Taron now plays ball at my college and is after more than a championship win. He wants to punish me for that kiss. Demand I serve up on a silver platter my pride, my body, and my absolute loyalty. Sorry, champ, but I didn't spend years drama-proofing my life for you to come barging in and dismantling it piece by piece.
One chance, one listen, one wish. What Syn Winters promised me. I got none of those things. Instead, she ripped my heart out of my chest, then disappeared. Ghosted. She should know better than to ghost a hot-tempered bastard like me. I'm here to collect what is mine, and after I punish Syn for her sins against me, I'll walk away with my heart whole again. Except nothing with Syn is ever easy or what it seems.
