The first time we met, it was an accident.

The second was the night my mother told me she was marrying his father.

I didn’t know his name then, but I do now.

Hayes Ambrose.

Captain of the swim team.

Popular, gorgeous, the guy every girl wants, with a smile that's hiding a million secrets.

In the beginning I was certain we would become fast friends, until the day I heard a conversation that I was never supposed to hear.

Overnight he became my worst nightmare, my bully.

He’ll do anything to keep me quiet, and I’ll do anything to discover the truth.

Until the truth is revealed and I realize it’s far more terrifying than I ever expected.

This is a full length stand-alone dark romance novel, containing scenes that are not suitable for all readers.

Overall Opinion :

This was an amazing stand alone romance! It is dark with triggers and I liked the storyline specially that plot twist about the villain because damn I never saw that coming!!!!

Morgan and Hayes have a take which you might love as a one time read. I found Morgan a bit irritating with her too clingy personality but it wa okk lmao because Hayes was pretty hot 🤣

Definitely recommending this book to all the dark romance, enemies to romance loving people out there. This book Is a good one time read for you all so definitely do try it.
