About this ebook

He is begging for redemption, she is aching for revenge.


He isn't the answer to my prayers. Even if half the student body on campus believes he is a gift from God and a Greek statue body to make matters worse.

The word enemies doesn't deserve the delicious description for the tension between us. Make no mistake there is no love here.

Aladdin "Lad" Lorenzo, my personal curse since high school. You would think a new territory would cause disruption in the social ladder but he wears a crown on a national level.

Too bad I'm not the shy girl who gave up her virginity on graduation night.

Tragedy beat the innocence out of me. Now all that remains is a sarcastic woman seething vengeance, ready to claim a name of her own.


Can love heal this broken hero?
