Vance . . .
Sometimes life throws you a curveball. Ember Bennett was mine.
My nemesis. My downfall.
And I never saw her coming.
She didn’t burst into my life, demanding to be noticed. Instead, she slipped in under the radar when I wasn’t looking. Caught me off guard.
I should’ve been paying better attention.
Because now I want her. I need her. I crave her.
I just can’t have her.
Ember . . .
I was minding my own business when Vance Davenport showed up.
Him and his bad boy persona, his earring, his attitude.
I didn’t like him . . . at first. But over time, he burrowed under my skin and became something I never expected . . . Until it all changed.
Then he became someone I wanted to forget.
