It took one heartbeat to fall in love with my best friend’s little sister. One more to know I could never, ever let it show.

I had to get away, so I broke her heart and left her behind to go to war.

She was never supposed to walk back into the wreckage of my life.

Now Summer is all grown up. All woman. And I’ve never wanted her more.

Even after all these years, she’s still forbidden.
I can’t make her mine.
And I can’t walk away.
