***Recommended for ages 17+ due to language and sexual situations.***
After this past year of heart-wrenching misery, and an entire childhood as daughter of one of the highest ranked officers in the Marine Corps, I’ve had enough of saying goodbye. I’ve had enough heartbreak to last me a lifetime.
But in an attempt to avoid an awkward run-in with a previous blind date, whom I may or may not have abandoned mid-dinner, I found myself standing in an exam room with Lucas Wells. He was exceptionally handsome on the outside, but the second he started to run that egotistical mouth of his, I wanted to do one of two things: smack him or kiss him.
Lucas Wells, the United States Marine, has me bending my rule in more ways than one.
But the real question is, will I succumb to breaking my rule altogether, or will he break me before I even get the chance?
