I’ve loved him as long as I can remember.
The gangly boy with big brown eyes and unruly hair who grew up into an intoxicating man. He wears scruff like he invented it and ambles with a swagger that makes panties drop.
We grew up together. We played Ghost in the Graveyard. Had our own rock band. It didn’t matter that he was five years older than me. It didn’t matter that he looked at me as a kid sister even as I grew into a woman. It didn’t even matter when he left me behind to go to college and start his adult life.
He’d be back.
He was always meant to be mine.
He came back, all right. But instead of smelling of promises, he stunk of betrayal. And he destroyed me—us—the day he married my sister instead of me.
So I did the only thing a girl like me in my position could do.
I got my revenge.
I married his brother, Kael.
Now we’re one big happy fucking family.
*NO CHEATING STANDALONE*
Full disclosure – this is most definitely a love triangle story. Actually, it is a quadrangle. Now, I know what you’re thinking. You don’t like love triangles. I get it. I really do. I don’t usually like them either. However, The is NO cheating and this story is so deep and twisted and complicated that it sucks you into its vortex before spitting you out the other side wondering what the heck you just read.
It is sooo good!
At times, especially in the beginning, I wasn’t sure I like Maverick, the heroine. The further I read, the more I understood her. Even after, there were times I didn’t like her but I kind of got her. She loved and was betrayed. She wanted something she couldn’t have and she was betrayed by someone close to her. It was all kinds of messed up.
I honestly couldn’t put this one down once I started. It was emotional and heart-wrenching and frustrating and kind of brilliant!
