He thought he protected her future. But she never escaped her past.
After seven years of silence, Jax barrels into my life like he never left. He wants me back; but I'm not the same girl he kissed good-bye.
The spirited, passionate girl he first fell in love with no longer exists. I live as a shadow of my former self, a shell of damaged dreams and unfulfilled potential--too broken for second chances. Too broken for him.
But Jax is a hot, confident, and fearless soldier. He may carry around old hurts and wear new scars but at his core, he's a fighter.
I just wish he wasn't fighting for me. Or my heart.
