The memory of Josiah DeMille has haunted me for close to a decade.
The way he looked.
The way he smelled.
The way his lips felt pressed against mine, even when they shouldn’t have been.
The one person I’ve never been able to get over.
The one singular part of my past I’ve never been able to move on from.
In every lyric sung into the microphone, in every chord strummed on the guitar, in the bottom of every single whiskey bottle, he’s there.
His memory has me in a chokehold.
His absence a gaping hole in my chest.
I gave up years ago wondering if I’d ever stop thinking about him.
Josiah DeMille is the ghost of my past. A past I left behind after my rock bottom.
Now he’s back, and he’s everything I remember him to be and more.
As mesmerizing as ever, a malt perfectly aged in an oak barrel.
But there are dark secrets and shameful lies between us, blurred lines, and an underlying temptation that we’ve never been able to ignore.
It’s a recipe for disaster, an imminent train wreck.
Where will we sit once the dust settles and the truth comes out?
Arrogant. Repulsive. Cocky.
With an ego almost as big as his… Well, you know.
There is no length he wouldn’t go to score.
To be in control. To win.
Life is nothing but a game to him, and I’ve become nothing more than his little pawn.
Something to toy with. To taunt.
To mess with. And to hurt.
The wicked smirk on his face as he helped upend my entire life is proof of that.He wants to push me to my limit until I’m begging for reprieve.
For mercy. Or for more.
Mateo Rojas is a force to be reckoned with.He’s everything I should run from.
And he will be my ruin.

Jules van der Meer…
He’s somebody I shouldn’t want. Someone I can’t have.
The forbidden fruit. The desire not to be divulged in.
He’s wealthy, successful, important… everything I’m not.

Immature and desperate.
It’s what they all say—the men in the night with the fancy clothes and the shiny cars, with enough money to make me do whatever they please.

Nothing but storm clouds and devastation.
