Ten years was the price of that love
Ten years later our world’s re-collide
My brother Jonah was possessive when it came to the things he owned; this unfortunately included the people in his life. The forbidden love between his best friend and me was just that… forbidden.
Our families were from different walks of life and as a sheriff’s daughter being with a Moore’s kid would never be tolerated. To my parents, their son and Dalton Moore were on different paths and their friendship would end as soon as college began but it was my brother who had a craving for trouble. He was always looking for danger, committing petty crimes and getting away with it because Dalton would take the fall, blackening his already stained name. When Jonah found out we broke the rules by loving each other, his consequences impacted us all with immeasurable suffering.
Betrayal comes with a debt and it would be paid by all of us.
One with their heart, one with their mind and one would pay in blood.
Dalton came from a life where he was expected to lead in a criminal world, but he had other plans that included Alex, until he was arrested for trying to protect her brother, Jonah, who was also Dalton's best friend. Coming out of prison with a different mindset, Dalton becomes what he feared most.
What neither of them realized was how deep the hatred from their parents went and how extensive the plot against them goes. But after ten years, no one is going to stand in their way.
This was was dark, raw, and inexplicably outstanding. Both Alex and Dalton were believable characters, neither knowing what happened to cause the ten years of separation. I seriously had book hangover after this read. 5 stars!
