A Second Chance at First Love.
It's been over a decade since tragedy ripped us apart.
We were just teens, but I never got to tell her I loved her.
Now I'm back in town, and Khloe doesn't want to see me.
Seconds after I walk into her work
I feel the same hot rush of longing I did all those years ago.
I still want her.
But there are secrets in the way.
I'm not the boy I was.
I'm a broken man with demons that chased me back from the Marines.
She's still hurt that I broke my promise.
There's no room in her life for me now.
But this attraction won't be ignored.
Her lush mouth, her touch, they bring light to my dark corners
But my secrets, my past, threaten to scare her off.
I don't know if she can handle what I've become.
I do know I can't stand to lose her again.
Not when I'd do anything to keep her.
In walks my past, hotter than ever.
I never could tell her no.
If Ava thinks she can walk back into my life
Thinks I’ll help her out when she’s desperate for a job,
If she thinks I’m going to lay awake wanting her back…
My first love, my first heartbreak, and now she needs me.
I’m not the kind of man who would walk away from her.
Loyal to the core, running my family’s bar and working sixteen hour days.
The next thing I know I’m working long nights with Ava
Feels like old times, and an old flame that never stopped burning
Is about to become an inferno.
All that desire, all those years apart
How could we make the same mistake again?
The one that cost us everything all those years ago
When we couldn’t get past what we’d lost.
Can we survive it this time, older, wiser, more in love than ever?
Or will it tear us apart just like it did back then?
