Hadley Rexford was a distraction I didn’t need. But when she discovers me with blood on my hands, I know I can’t walk away without demanding her silence.
I’ll taint her.
In the end, I’ll ruin her.
Cole Jagger was a puzzle I wanted to solve. But he refuses to let me in, and now I’m ensnared in his trap.
In the end, he‘ll break me.
She might think I’m worthy of salvation, but I’m on a one way trip straight to hell, and if she’s not careful….
I’ll drag her right along with me.

“I want to ruin you,” he whispers against my lips.
It’s a threat. But the haze of pleasure clinging to my skin, my every thought, twists it into something tender, something addictive.
I want Cole to ruin me.
I want this broken, brooding boy to mark me and claim me.
But I also want him to keep me… and that’s a problem.
Because Cole is different. I see it every time I look into his dark gray eyes.
He rubs at my clit harder, stealing my breath and making my legs tremble.
“Cole,” I pant. “It’s too much.” His touch is borderline torture, but he doesn’t let up.
He lips trail wet, sloppy kisses down my jaw until he’s sucking at the skin along my collarbone. “You wanted this,” he taunts. “You wanted to play with the devil…”
“I know… god…” I cry out as he spears his fingers deeper, scissoring them inside me.
Pain and pleasure crash over me in rapid succession, until I fly off the edge, and Cole swallows my moans with dirty kisses.
Silence settles over us. I want to feel shame at what just happened, at what I let happen. But I can’t find it in me to care. Cole isn’t the only one who feeds off the darkness. My soul was dirty a long time before Cole Jagger came into my life.
I’m wrung out. Breathless and sweaty. Cole drags his tongue up my cheek before rolling away and leaving me cold. I fix the buttons on my blouse and clamber off his bed. I know I’m flushed and heavy-lidded, but I don’t want to stick around and let him ruin the lingering bliss I still feel coursing through my veins.
Making a beeline for the door, I don’t stop until his voice cuts through the tension crackling around us.
“What the fuck are you doing, Hadley?”
“Me?” I glance back at him. “I’m going to hang out with my friends.”
“You mean you didn’t—”
“What? Come here just for you?” I shake my ass, unable to fight the smile lifting the corner of my mouth. “Remi invited me.”
His teeth grind together as he watches me. “This, me and you… don’t get any ideas.”
“Wouldn’t dream of it.” I slip out of his room and inhale a ragged breath.
