Driven by a tragedy that has haunted him for most of his life, his relentless pursuit of success and revenge leaves little room for heartfelt questions.

Ava Chen is a free spirit trapped in childhood nightmares that she cannot recall.

Her savior and her downfall. Their love is a love that wasn’t supposed to happen, but when it does, it unlocks secrets that could destroy them both… and everything they care about.

Tᴡɪsᴛᴇᴅ Lᴏᴠᴇ Qᴜᴏᴛᴇs:
- If you wanted, I would burn down the world for you.
- “You are the light to my dark, Sunshine, he said in a raw voice. His lips brushed against mine as he spoke. “Without you, I’m lost.”
- “She felt like heaven to my hell, the closest I’d ever get to salvation, and yet I still wanted to drag her into the depths of Hades with me.”
- “Alex gripped my chin and brought my gaze to his. “What did I tell you? You’re mine, Sunshine. You’re never touching another man unless you want him six feet in the ground. So yes, we’re f**king exclusive.”
- I’d do anything for you. No matter how twisted or impossible.
