When I was younger, I believe I almost stumbled upon something I shouldn’t have. Something that upset my mother and made her abandon us all. It was all my fault.
I grew up wondering how she could leave us? My older brothers never blamed me, but I’ve blamed myself. So much so I never asked questions when I was thrown into the family business. Then I had my little girl. I thought I could take a vacation from being a Di Lorenzo.
However, my selfish wife has ensured my return to the life. I will no longer be able to remain an outsider to what my brothers and I have been handed.

When this becomes personal, all thoughts of keeping my secrets go out the window. In the blink of an eye, I become who I was created to be.
Will the truth tear everything apart? Will there be one secret too many? Or will it all go according to plan in this unexpected love?

My best friend's sister stumbled across a secret she had no idea existed—her secret.

My loyalty was tested, but I blindly stood by their side.
What I didn't realize was that following them into the dark would cost me everything. My friends. My scholarship.
I was driven by anger and resentment toward the people I had once trusted with my life.
Until I met her: King.
My name is Kingsley Monroe.
At least, that's the name I go by these days.
I didn't plan this. I wasn't supposed to stay. Keep moving, he ordered.
Then, one fateful afternoon changed the course of my future. I ran into him: Weston Sheats—literally.
I stayed in the shadows for over a year. Eventually, my need for him to notice made me step out of the dark. I wanted him to see me once. I swore I wouldn't let him get close, I would not get attached. I failed.
An unexpected turn of events was the wake-up call I needed. I had to tell him, come clean. But would he accept my past? Who I am?
Realizing there was no future, I did what I was supposed to do months ago…and I took the one thing with me that could've made a difference for both of us.
