Prologue

 

Im clutching Ava’s hand as if my life depends on it. My entire body is shaking as I look at the love of my life, my fiancée, the mother of my child in sheer desperation. I love her so damn much. I dont care that she cheated on me. I don’t care that she didnt tell me her secret. I can forgive her, I can...

Where do we go from here, Ava?

I have to follow my heart, Ava says painfully.

And what does your heart say?

My adrenaline goes up a notch as I wait for her terrifying answer. I can see her eyes begin to fill with tears and my heart thuds against my chest as I witness the look of pain etched along her beautiful yet battered face. God, the things he did to her I cant even contemplate it. Fuck.

Please say its me...

Please...

I need you...

I love you.

My eyes widen hopelessly as she opens her mouth to speak.

That Ashtons the one I want to be with.

My chin begins to tremble on its own accord, and my insides snap and shatter at her words. An indescribable pain ricochets across my chest and I find it impossible to find my next breath. The tears I didnt realize I held, begin to fall.

The motherfucking floodgates open and I cry hysterically in the arms of the woman who doesnt love me anymore.

In that one moment, everything changes, and I turn to the only thing I know will numb the pain of my loss.

Cocaine.

 


I loved Sebastian. I believe it was because of his struggle with drugs. That made me appreciate him a lot more. 
I totally related to him regarding his struggle to get over Ava. Whom I wanted to choke the whole book.
Addison I loved her the whole book. But I really respected her more with what she did.
Overall a great read. This is my first read from this author. I will be waiting for more from her. I felt her characters were very realistic and relatable.

About The Author

 

Receptionist by day, author by night, Elena Matthews is from Manchester, United Kingdom, the home of Manchester United, Media city and of course, Coronation Street. When Elena isn’t writing, she can be found with her nose in a book or watching guilty pleasures such as Gossip Girl, developing a rather unusual liking to Chuck Bass. And when she isn’t doing any of those things, you can often find her on Facebook, obsessing over Kellan Kyle, book boyfriend extraordinaire

Elena spent three years of her life at Salford University studying media production, to decide she no longer wanted to pursue a career in the media. Instead, it took her another two and half years to realise her calling. Writing. Now she lives and breathes her writing. She even had to tell her colleagues at work whenever she is found daydreaming at her desk, it’s because she is conversing with her characters.
