She was supposed to be my forever.
Instead, I became her worst enemy.

I fell for the one girl I could never have…
And it destroyed us both.
I did a bad, bad thing.
But she isn’t exactly innocent either.
When I’m faced with the ultimate choice – Let her die or save her – I grab her and run.
She calls me a monster. The devil himself.
No one will take her from me.
She’s mine to punish.
Mine to keep… forever.

Excerpt 1


“You wanna toy with my emotions?” I growl.

She shakes her head, but the moment she parts her lips, I pull out my gun again. I point it at her pussy. “Do you want me to hurt you?”

“No,” she instantly says. “Please.”

Please?” I repeat, my brows drawing together. “A minute ago you were begging me to.”

“Not there,” she says, crossing her legs.

I part them with my knees.

I know what her weakness is.

She thinks I’ll kill her quickly? Wrong.

I’ll take my sweet ass time. I’ll do whatever I want to her body until she begs me to end it. That’ll teach her.

“You think you can seduce me?” I say, pushing the gun against her clothes right where her pussy is. “Don’t lie.”

“I’ll stop,” she says, trying to cover it with her hands.

“Uh-uh,” I say, nudging them off.

Her eyes fill with tears. “If you’re gonna kill me, just do it.”

“Who says I will? Maybe I’ll enjoy our time together first,” I reply, licking my lips at the thought. She wants to play the victim, be my guest, but I’m the last to believe it. I’m not the only one who deserves the worst, and she knows it.

“So … you think you can watch me in the shower without repercussions?” I mumble.

“It was an accident,” she says.

“Of course it was.” I snort. It’s a damn lie and she knows it. “If I shoot you in the leg now, that’s an accident too, right?”

“No, no,” she begs. “Do anything you want, just don’t hurt me.”

“Anything?” My cock hardens just from the thought. “Tell me you want it,” I hiss, nudging the gun against her thighs.

“I want it,” she coos.

I’ll give her a piece of her own medicine. “Make me believe it.”

“Give it to me,” she begs.

“Look me in the eyes when you say it, Dixie,” I growl, grabbing her hair as I tilt her head up.

When she opens them and shows me those beautiful, tear-stained eyes, I remember why I fell for her in the first place. Fuck me, is she pretty when she’s mad.

“Give it to me … I want it,” she repeats with a thick, seductive voice that makes me want to fuck her right now.

Maybe I will, just to show her who’s boss.

She can’t play me … but I will play her.

As a grin spreads on my lips, I say, “Good. Now open your mouth.”

When she does, I put the tip of the gun inside, right on her tongue.


Her eyes widen as she looks up at me, confused.

“Didn’t hear me? Suck,” I command, this time louder.

She immediately starts licking the metal, sucking on it as if it’s her last lifeline. It probably is, considering how close I came to actually pulling the trigger.

But I won’t tell her that … I like keeping her in the dark …

She deserves to be there, just like me.

Excerpt 2


I aim and attempt to shoot, but Brandon immediately leans away as I pull the trigger. The bullet ricochets off the car bumper and I growl out loud in frustration. We fight over the gun, and he knocks it from my hand, shoving me to the ground again. The gun flies off a few feet ahead, landing on the dusty soil, right next to a prickly, dead bush. Too far for me to reach.

“You just had to go and do that again,” Brandon growls, holding me down. “Don’t you ever fucking learn? You can’t win this. You know I’m right.”

I don’t care if he’s right. I won’t give up. I can’t. For my brothers’ sake. For my own sanity.

Because the more time I spend with him, the more the line between what’s right and wrong begins to blur.

“And just when I thought we were getting on better,” he says, snorting. “Maybe you’re a hard learner.” He grips my body and turns me over underneath him. I’m helpless to fight him as he puts my wrists onto my back and tears off his tie, wrapping it around my wrists.

“Don’t worry, I’ll teach you a thing or two,” he whispers into my ears.

“Let. Me. Go,” I hiss back.

“Not until you’ve got what you came for …” he muses. “Me.”

“Like you’d give me your head,” I reply.

“No, my cock will have to do,” he says and I can hear him grin. “Because that’s what you want, right? You’ve been yearning for it for so long now, always eying me whenever you can, wanting every woman to stay away from me as if you already own me …”

“Ridiculous,” I reply, but as his hand slides down my body, I completely forget what I was about to say.

He undoes the button on my pants and rips down my zipper.

“What are you doing?” I mutter as I try to wriggle out from underneath him.

“Giving you what you want … what you deserve,” he says, pulling down my pants.

Before I know it, my panties are gone too. I squeal, but he covers my mouth with his hand and whispers into my ear, “Let me give it to you then.”
