It’s the summer before college, and I’ve received an invitation to the Radcliff estate—a place my dad took us from and swore he’d never revisit.
I accept my aunt’s peace offering because I want to see my cousin again.
However, upon my arrival, I realize he’s changed.
Reid is cold and distant.
When he does open up, it creates something forbidden between us.
I remind him at every attempt that we’re “cousins.”
But slowly, those desires become too hard to fight.
Seven years ago, my best friend left, and it shattered my heart.
Even worse, she never reached out.
I was adamant about guarding myself around Cassie.
But the closer we get, the more difficult it is to keep my hands off her.
Now that she’s in my grasp, I won’t ever let her go.
No matter what our family or anyone thinks.
