Before She Was Mine
Summer was mine once.
I’d kill for a second chance.
I was never allowed to love Summer Sullivan. I loved her anyway. I wasn’t allowed to kiss her. I kissed her anyway. And then I took her heart in my hands and crushed it.
Leaving her behind to go to war was unforgivable. I survived—barely. After what I did to her, I deserve to be a broken man with a broken body.
I never expected to see her at the veteran’s support office.
I never expected for her to run right back into my arms.
Now Summer is mine again, but loving me is dangerous. I fell in with a bad crowd when I got back home. Worse than she can imagine. They’re still out to get me.
My secrets are deadly, and being with me has put her right in the crossfire.
