Sharing a summer house with a hot-as-hell roommate should be a dream come true, right? Not when it’s Justin…the only person I’d ever loved… who now hates me.
When my grandmother died and left me half of the house on Aquidneck Island, there was a catch: the other half would go to the boy she helped raise. The same boy who turned into the teenager whose heart I broke years ago. The same teenager who’s now a man with a hard body and a hardass personality to match.
I hadn’t seen him in years, and now we’re living together because neither one of us is willing to give up the house. The worst part? He didn’t come alone.
I’d soon realize there’s a thin line between love and hate. I could see through that smug smile. Beneath it all…the boy is still there. So is our connection. The problem is…now that I can’t have Justin, I’ve never wanted him more.
“I am so sorry if my leaving like that hurt you in any way.”
“Hurt me?” He let out a slightly angry laugh then shocked me with what he said next. “It changed me. I loved you, Amelia. I was in love with you.” Justin ran his fingers through his hair in frustration. “How the fuck did you not know that?”
“Why are you involving yourself in this?”
“I don’t care how you feel about me, alright? I care about you. I always have, and I always will, and I don’t want anything to happen to you.”
“I never stopped loving you. There may have been times I tried to hate you, but even then, I never stopped loving you.”
"Sometimes the thing we fear more than anything, is really what our soul craves the most." Justin
"It's no longer going to be hard for you to resist me. You won't want anything to do with me. Your biggest nightmare...just became my reality, Justin." Amelia
"All that time I spent mad at you...I could have been fucking you. What a dumbass" Justin
"Without all of that pent-up frustration, we wouldn't have had as much angry sex" Justin
