Fated for Me


Book 7
Charisse Spiers Books

I love her.

After all these years, I admit to it. Something I've been denying my entire life. But it's true. I can't imagine a life without her. I barely have any memories she isn't in. We've had more sleepovers than I can count. Our adventures started small and have escalated over time. She's been my partner in crime since we were kids. We've been friends forever. Things with her have always been easy.

Until we grew up.

I noticed her body changing first. Then came the makeup. She started acting different around me. There was flirting. Looks I couldn't avoid. She hated my girlfriend. Being alone with her felt wrong. My eyes wandered. My mind pondered. Inappropriate thoughts plagued me often. Every tight shirt, every short skirt, every inch of skin on display, had me wanting her, but I ignored it for years.

Guys had her when it should have been me. But on paper we would never work—too much at stake—so I forced myself to fall for someone else. It worked. Until she hurt me. What she did left me angry, bitter, and it changed me, with one single act.

Christmas Eve of Presley's senior year I gave in. I let myself have the girl I've wanted most of my life. One night set things in motion I never saw coming. I purposely hurt her. I hate myself for it. The guilt still eats at me.

But one thing holds true—she'll never stay mad at me. Our history dates back too far. Her high school graduation came. One last adventure—Cancun. Everything changed. I made a promise to myself I intend to keep.

Now, after all this time, I'm ready to make good on it. I'm going after my girl with my band at my side. But everything I set in motion a long time ago—it's catching up. You can't move forward with someone until she comes clean. The way I hurt her was nothing compared to the way she'll hurt me.

Welcome to Miami.

I'm Kambry Rivers, famous for . . . holding onto my V-card?

Ha! Just kidding. Okay, maybe I'm not. I have to find humor in my current predicament, otherwise, I'd cry. My parents would be so ashamed. The very thing I hated holding onto put money in my bank account. Ironic, isn't it? I've been a lot of things in such a short time. Alabama good girl, yes. Runaway, again, yes. Virgin, well, not anymore. Porn star . . .

I'm still letting that sink in. Eh, adult film star sounds classier. In my head, it makes a difference.

It all started with a guy. Doesn't it always? There I was, working in the VIP section of the nightclub and he ended up at my table. Rule number one: serve them like VIP while pretending they're ordinary people. Yeah, okay. Try telling that to a shy girl. He was cute. I didn't notice. At least that's what I kept telling myself. He couldn't be too famous if I didn't recognize him, right?

The most dangerous predator moves under the radar. Shark. They find amusement in the weak. His teeth were in me before I saw him coming. Or maybe it was a tongue . . .

Okay, so, maybe he was a lot hotter than I remembered. And funny. And interesting. And, it gave me a rush, okay? I wasn't used to so much freedom. Before I knew it, I had signed my name to a legally-binding document and found myself with a new roommate. And maybe it stated somewhere that we were supposed to have sex with hidden cameras in the room. Just pretend they're not there. How easily he could make me forget . . . We only live once, right?

I was never paid to fall in love. Or raised to like having sex with my well-known porn star boyfriend for anyone with a readily available internet connection to watch. Whoops. Now we wait for our next instruction. New York here we come. He may have wanted a virgin. He got so much more.

I have debts to pay and secrets to keep. When someone threatens my life, I crash into him: Jackson Ludlow

The recluse billionaire of New York

Once, he had everything a man could want. Then, he lost the only thing that he ever loved.

So, he spent four years holed up in his mansion doing the only thing he knew how to do: make money. 

We are all wrong for each other. He’s cold, uninterested and demanding. 

I’m impatient and inexperienced. 

The only thing we have in common is that we both have secrets. 

And the closer we get, the more they threaten to destroy us.

I’ve known what it’s like to be at the top of the world looking down.

I had the girl, the band, fans, and a deal on the table. It was the opportunity of a lifetime, and not many get to experience it. I knew what I wanted and was unstoppable. No one was going to stand in our way. She supported me. She had an undying love for our music. And I was all in. Being a tattoo artist was just a paid hobby I was more than happy to lay down.

We were going to make it—all of us. I could already feel the heat from the stage lights, see the sold-out venue with hands in the air as the crowd chanted our name and sang our lyrics. I could imagine our songs playing on the radio. Music videos, success, fame, Grammys—I wanted it all. We were chasing a dream. Billboard was my target. And we were days away from claiming a tour bus.

Then she died.

A musician without a muse is nothing. She was mine. I wanted none of it anymore. No friends, family, nothing. I just wanted her. Drugs became my lifeline. Didn’t matter the kind. It all served a purpose. An effort to make me forget what I’d done. My desire for music laid six-feet under just like her. And as much as I wanted to die, God wouldn’t let me. Living was a greater punishment.

When I was as low as I could go, the stars aligned, and suddenly I was around people I couldn’t escape, being forced to face things I never had. Fresh out of rehab and halfway across the country and I laid eyes on her—hot, younger, and an itch I was going to scratch.

Only it wasn’t. She changed everything. Things I didn’t want changed. She stirs emotions I’d laid to rest. She sparks behavior in me that’s never existed. She surfaces a form of desire I’ve never known. Her immaturity leaves me raging mad. Her tantrums make me crazy. And the jealousy over her I can’t handle. Yet I can’t leave her alone.

And when the supernatural has a hand in matchmaking, the only thing left . . . is recovery.

Note from the author: It is imperative to read "Fated for You and Fated for Me" prior to reading Fate by Forgiveness, as Riggan and Sayler's story starts there.
