Friend. She wants to be my friend. I don’t want to be her friend. I want to be her man, the one she smiles at, the one she says she loves. But I’m not that person. I can only endure and pretend to hug her when inside I’m dying to hold her, tell her she’s mine. Maybe if we started off on the right foot, have no misunderstanding between us, then she’ll look at me. But I’m not her man. I’m only her friend.
But a guy can dream… right?
Dream. I always dream for freedom. Justin Valenti. He’s now my dream. He’s now my freedom. How do I tell him that he’s more than my friend? Yes, we started off on the wrong foot but each day, my lovesick fever only grows stronger and I know one day I’ll snap. Maybe tomorrow I’ll tell him. Maybe tomorrow I’ll confess to him that I love him. If only my past didn’t catch up to me.
Author’s Note: This is the story of Justin Valenti, Giovanni Dante’s best friend, who appears in book 3 and book 4 of Maid to the Mafia. Completely Breathless, will take the readers back to when Justin was still a college student and how he met Lily, his first love. Raw and romantic, this first second book ends with a happy ending.
