Now twenty-two, Taylor doesn’t think she’s worth more than being the kind of girl a guy hooks up with in the back room of a bar after her band plays. She definitely isn’t the one you bring home to meet Mom and Dad.
An unlikely rescue puts her in Ethan’s sight. He’s her total opposite, though. Ethan is a sexy dork who sees beyond Taylor’s guarded exterior. He sees past the tattoos and piercings. He sees her.
But they both have secrets capable of destroying their relationship. And if Taylor’s past ever catches up with her, the consequences could be deadly.
Due to explicit language, sexual content, and dark themes, reader discretion is advised.
Ethan sucked on his bottom lip, his eyes full of torment. “You wouldn’t talk to me.”
I swallowed. He had this way of making me think he could see all of me, every part I hid, every flaw I had, every dream I didn’t dare believe in, like he worshipped it because it was mine. “I screwed up.”
He shook his head as he stepped closer, took the net out of my hand, and placed it on the side of the pool. “No, you didn’t.”
He stood in front of me, staring into my eyes. I couldn’t look away. I didn’t want to look away. There was nothing but Ethan and me in the water with the vibrations of anticipation flowing through my veins, feeding an energy to my body so intense I could only stand frozen. His gaze shifted to my mouth, and I licked my lips.
“Taylor, I…I’m going to kiss you,” he said softly. “I want you to remember how good it feels. I need you to remember that before we talk.” His hands ran up and down my arms as his eyes bore into mine. “Okay?”
I did not need a reminder of how perfect everything in the world was when we kissed, but I sure as hell wasn’t going to argue. The ability to speak escaped me, but I nodded. He leaned toward me and my heart slammed in my chest as he brushed his fingers over my lips. “So beautiful,” he whispered, more to himself than me.

Describe yourself. What is your worst and best quality?
Best is I do what I have to in order to take care of people I love. Worst is I fuck up everything.
What is the one thing you wish other people knew about you?
I hate it when people ask me about my tattoo on my wrist. So I wish they knew that. Then maybe they’d stop asking.
What is your biggest secret/something no one knows about?
Listen, I’m not trying to be a bitch but there’s a reason why no one knows that, you know?
What are you most afraid of?
Being found. I’m not a fan of theme parks either.
What do you want more than anything?
To be loved, happy, and safe.
What is your relationship status?
I am so hot for a guy that is my total opposite. Which sucks, because he’d never go for someone like me. I kind of felt him up in the pool the other day, though, and he seemed into it.
How would you describe your sense of fashion?
I’m in a bikini most of the time for work. When I’m not working, I just wear shorts and a tank top. Nothing special. I’m not one of those rich people that can be all into clothes.
Are you attracted to rebels?
Nope. I actually realized recently that rule followers are crazy sexy.
What do you considered to be your greatest achievement?
I’ve saved people I love before. They just don’t know it. And they hate me. So I’m not really sure if it’s great for me, but they’re alive and happy so it’s great for them.
What is your idea of happiness?
Playing music with my friends and spending time with someone I love after.
What is your current state of mind?
I’m always cautious, but these days I’m kind of happy too, which I like.
What is your most treasured possession?
My bass and some magazines.
What is your most marked characteristic?
I like to help people expand their vocabulary.
What is it that you, most dislike?
Stalkers and serial killers.
Which living person do you, most despise?
There are two, but that has to do with my biggest secret. So, sorry.
What is your greatest regret?
I caused a lot of problems with my sister, and now she doesn’t talk to me.
What is the quality you most like in a man?
I recently figured out that I’m sapiosexual. I don’t know what took me so long to realize it, because it’s so fucking hot.
What is the quality you most like in a woman?
When they are nice and not bitchy. That’s cool.
Which person, living or dead, do you most admire?
My mom, because she did a great job without having much.
If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?
Like physically? I wish I had bigger boobs.
What is your motto?
Do what you have to do.
