Ember Bennett was my beginning…but she was also the end.
She was my downfall.
And I never even saw her coming.
She didn’t burst into my life demanding to be noticed. Instead, she slipped in under my radar when I wasn’t looking. Caught me off guard.
I should have been paying better attention.
Because I found myself drawn to her. Her quirkiness, her laughter, her brutal honesty.
I didn’t ask for her. Still I found myself wanting her. Needing her. Craving her.
I just couldn’t have her.
I was minding my own business when Vance Davenport showed up.
He wasn’t talking, yet somehow I heard him.
I wasn’t looking, but my eyes sought him out.
He became something I never expected.
Until it all changed.
Then he became someone I wanted to forget.
