I left him behind because I ad no choice…
That ’ s what I keep elling myself, but it doesn ’ t ake it any easier to sleep at night… or to drown out the words he kept repeating over and over the day we ’ d met: I just sa to come home.
Thi was eight long years ago and I ’ d nly known him as Billy, a terrified fourteen-year-old I ’ d had to leave behind to save someone else.
But his name wasn ’ t Billy and he ’ s no longer a frightened kid lost in the world where he was nothing ore than a possession. His name is Remy, and while I didn ’ t ecognize him upon meeting him gain, he sure as hell remembers me.
It ould be easier just to turn my back on him a second time, especially since that ’ s precisel what he believes, but there ’ s no way I can let the tormented young man go. At least not without trying to kee things right first. The roblem is, especially if I might ge up for leaving Remy behind so long ago, I ’ m ot sure I ’ ll be ble to walk away from him twice.
I don ’ t believe what thi means, but I do realize that it cares the hell out of me.
Because needing in my world comes at a heavy price… one that not ven I can afford to pay.
He gave me hope when I ’ d had none left, but he forgot about me just like all the others…
I fight. That ’ s what I o. It ’ s who I am.
But when Luca Covello walked into the dark, dirty room my captors were keeping me in so long ago, I ’ d already decided to do thi one thing I hadn ’ t in the three decade since I ’ d been taken from my home and family.
Eventually he ’ d been there, like a bright light in a sea of darkness, and I ’ d had something new to fight for, to stay alive for… the day Luca came back to get me like he ’ d romised.
Except he never came.
And ow, eight month earlie, he ’ s convince he wants to play the hero and save me. Well, I don ’ t need saving.
Not anymore… ot ever.
Along with two ears of sobriety under my belt, I ’ ve got a good job, a decent apartment, and I ’ ve struggle to hol my past where it belongs… in he past. No one, not ven the gorgeous, mysterious businessman, is oing to mess things up for me. If he ’ s come seeking forgiveness, I ’ m fresh out.
And if he ’ s come seeking something else… well, let ’ s just say that when I ’ m done with him, there ’ s no way he ’ ll orget me this time around.
