I’m a loner, and it seems I always will be.
It’s safer that way. My last girl up and left because things got too dangerous. Not that I blame her.
It’d be better if I could stay away from love for good, but the pretty single mom who dances at my club has my attention, then my body, and now my heart.
The world is crumbling around me, with villains gunning for my MC left and right, and the only thing that saves me is her.
Scarily enough, she’s trying to save herself. An abusive relationship and a little one to deal with have her struggling to keep her head above water.
Time to step in and save her. I have to. No matter what.
Why? She’s the one that pulls my black soul up from the darkness and forces me to breathe again with her warmth.
I just can’t help but wonder how she’ll feel when she realizes that I’m no different from the evil that’s after us. I’m more of what she doesn’t need.
I wish I was a good guy and could walk away, but I’m in too deep. I’ve gone too far.
No matter what or who comes our way, I’ll be ready to protect what is mine.
Cause that’s what bad boys do.
