What if you were in love with someone you could never have? What if they loved you back?
Six years ago, I made a mistake. The worst mistake I could have ever possibly made. I fell in love with the wrong person and … I told him.
Ryan’s always been with me ever since I can remember. It’s been the two of us—side by side. Through every new beginning, every new ‘family’, and every failure. Is it any wonder that the love I had for him turned into something different—something deeper? Something utterly rotten? And is it any wonder that he hates me for it now?
I’m a damaged soul, and she’s the only thing that’s ever held me together. But the one woman I want is the one woman I can never have.
She thinks I hate her for her confession, and maybe a part of me does. What I hate more, though, is that I have to push her away to keep her safe. That I have to pretend like I don’t fucking want her when she’s all I’ve been able to think about for the last six years.
We’re no fucking Romeo and Juliet. We’re much worse than that. A love like ours was doomed from the start.

Holy taboo bully romance! I actually enjoyed this dark, forbidden story and my heart was all over the place. Willow is a smart, introverted, slightly confident student. But she has a dark secret that she’s tried to bury deep in her heart. Ryan is cocky, quarterback with a hidden connection with Willow. But he wants nothing to do with her. I loved the push and pull in this book…the crazy teasing, mysterious and not so surprising bullying, undeniable attraction…I couldn’t stop turning the pages. This story is filled with high angst, drama, steam and stalker behavior. All of my favorite dark themes. If you love a naughty taboo romance, look no further because as crazy as the premise is for this dark story, everything pulls together in the end.
