'COLE is spannend, onvoorspelbaar, niet weg te leggen! Ik wilde dit verhaal niet alleen lezen, ik wilde erin wonen' ― Penelope Douglas, NYT-bestsellerauteur

Hij was gewoon een man die een restaurant binnenstapte. Ik wist niet wie hij was of hoe hij heette. We keken elkaar niet eens aan. Niets verbond ons met elkaar. Toch kon ik zijn aanwezigheid tot in mijn ziel voelen, liep er een tinteling langs mijn ruggengraat. Hij straalde gezag uit. De lucht om hem heen leek te knetteren. Dat was de eerste keer dat ik hem zag en ik raakte betoverd.

Die tweede keer was anders. Hij stond in de mysterieuze privélift aan het einde van de gang in mijn appartementencomplex. Een vluchtig moment raakten onze blikken elkaar, toen schoven de deuren dicht. Ik was totaal overdonderd. De adem stokte in mijn keel. Mijn zintuigen stonden op scherp. Mijn lichaam leek te zoemen.

Dat was nog maar het begin.
Hij was het hoofd van de maffia. Ik stond op het punt om hopeloos verliefd op hem te worden.

Zijn naam?
Cole Mauricio.

Skye Copeland is on paid leave from her broadcasting job after accidentally drawing a pecker on the traffic map.

Skye isn’t laughing. She needs this job. And that’s the only reason she’s willing to chase down a story in her least favorite place—that hell on earth known as Vermont.

A quick trip. In and out. Much like - never mind. She can sneak into the town that once tried to break her, get the story and slide back into the good graces of her producer. Easy peasy.

But things go sideways the moment she steps over the county line. Her stepsister is running from a violent drug dealer. And the cop on the case is none other than Benito Rossi, the man who broke Skye’s teenage heart.

His dark brown eyes still tear her apart. And even as she steels herself to finally tell him off after twelve years, the old fireworks are still there.

Things are about to go boom.

Luke Evans is a heartbreaker.
I didn’t want to give mine to him. Not when he kept me out.
He gave me enough, just enough to make me fall in love with him. I say this to convince myself. But I know the truth.
I would’ve fallen in love with him at a distance.
Handing my heart over to Luke was the easiest thing I’ve ever done. I was naive when I wished for more, when I hoped he wanted the same things I did.
I try to hate him. I try to forget him.
But it’s not that easy.
Love is a ruthless bitch, and I’m her latest victim.

Tessa Kelly is a man-eater.
When she sets her sights on you, she doesn’t just consume your heart, she goes for your soul.
What we had was perfect, real, and all I would ever want.
But she destroyed it.
She destroyed us.
I try to hate her. I try to forget her.
But it’s not that easy.
Love is for people who have hope, and I have none.
