Everyone tells me to leave her—that she’s going to destroy me.
But things aren’t that simple.
Elora’s pregnant with my child and I endure her twisted games of manipulation and violence to protect my unborn baby. I never predicted she would do the unthinkable or that she was cruel enough to kill.
Yet she did, and now everything’s spiralling out of control.
The light-hearted jokester on the race track isn’t a part I can play anymore. The Dustin Coates everyone loved is no longer me. I’m merely a grief-stricken man who’s barely able to function.
At least until Tazia Nixon moves in next door.
She soothes my aching heart and helps me forget. With every second I’m around her, I can feel myself being revived.
However, beneath her eternal optimism is a distressing past, and the lies are starting to unravel around me. I should have protected my fragile heart from her when I had the chance because now it’s too late. Someone out there wants to destroy me, and the odds are stacking up against us. They know Tazia can break me beyond repair, and they aren’t afraid to use her.
