First to Fall
Ben Love? Yeah, hard pass. It has the power to take everything from you—even yourself. It’s why I stay clear. Don’t get me wrong. I’m a big fan of insta-lust. The kind that only lasts as long as the heat does. Come morning? It’s a whole new day. That’s why, when I meet the perfect girl at a wedding, I know, for the next couple of hours, I’m going to love every little succulent inch of her.

Comparing it to a dumpster fire sounds more accurate. And now, I’m being forced to move back home, a place I swore I would never return to.

And still has a way of lighting a fire inside me. I need to stop looking at him the way he’s looking at me. But everything will go up in flames once he finds out who I am.
