Second chances don’t always come easy, even when you’re determined to get them.
I let her slip through my fingers—
No, that’s a lie. I was reckless and pushed her away.
I was never supposed to fall for her…my tutor, my best friend.
I tried to stay away. I failed.
Then we graduated and everything changed. All I needed was a step back, a moment to breathe.
But by the time I came up for air, she was in the arms of another man.
Four years later, everything is different. And when I see her again, I remember why I should have never let her go in the first place.
It started on day one…
New school. New life. And there he was, the boy I grew up with, walking up the steps of my very first class.
Except now, the boy from my memories was gone, and in his place was an Adonis of a man.
Even though I knew we were doomed from the start, it didn’t take much for me to fall for him. And when you find something that perfect, you don’t second guess it.
Until it ends.
Four years later, he’s back. Steamrolling through my life like he never broke my heart to begin with. But this time, I’m older, wiser, and know that second chances are only the stuff of fairy tales.
