He was her first. And she wants him to be her last.
An off-limits, second chance novella by USA Today Bestselling author Melissa Belle.
When I knew him, Duncan was a soccer star.
But to me, he was my first love. My only love.
Six years ago, he was the boy with the midnight dark hair and impossibly gray-blue eyes I met one summer in Europe. When the world felt dark, Duncan was my light. He kissed me, cared for me, and protected me. And then I went home, and he stayed in Europe to pursue his dreams.
I followed my dreams by going to college. And the years passed. Duncan never left my heart, but I didn’t expect to see him again.
Because first loves aren’t meant to last…
I was supposed to stay away from Brooklyn.
She was too young, too good, and she was only in Paris for a short while.
But she got under my skin right away—that brilliant, sassy blonde with the killer smile and long, tanned legs.
She twisted my heart into knots and made me want to stay in her arms forever rather than chase my dream. She was like lightning in a bottle—I was sure when she left Paris, I’d missed my chance with her for good.
For six years, I was right. Until I agree to take part in a charity soccer game in Boston and a gorgeous blonde with tanned legs runs onto the field to see her cousins who turn out to be three of my closest friends.
So Brooklyn is back in my life…but her cousins have warned me off her. She’s like their baby sister and they don’t want to see her hurt.
I don’t want to break the bro code.
But time is short. And the fire between Brooklyn and me stills burns.
And I’m not giving Brooklyn up again…for anyone.
