"The troubled little girl I vowed to protect. The beautiful young woman I tried to resist. The Bratva princess I grew to hate."
Hailee Raine only has to survive one more year. One year of life in her football obsessed town. One year of nauseating school spirit. Just one more year of her cruel step-brother Jason; and his cocky, arrogant, football playing friends. She hates them. Especially, Cameron Chase, the guy she thought was different. Cameron Chase has the world at his feet. He has it all; good looks, talent, and the charm to go with it. He has colleges lined up at the door, all wanting a piece of Rixon Raiders star wide receiver. Until something threatens everything he's ever worked for, and only one person can quiet the war raging inside him. But he's supposed to hate her; his best friend's sister. She's off-limits. Untouchable. She's trouble with a capital T. Then Hailee finds herself in the middle of a football prank gone wrong... And suddenly hating each other never felt so good.

Unhurried and unyielding. My hands find his shirt, pulling him closer as his tongue fucks my mouth. Because that’s exactly what this is. This isn’t kissing. Or maybe it is, and I’ve been kissing the wrong boys.
"When I was twelve years old he saved me, and I have belonged to him ever since..." "Maybe I needed to save him back for him to belong to me, too..."
"They stole what was mine. I'm taking it back, and more. I'm not interested in their properties or shares. I don't want their small change. I want my enemy's biggest asset - his beautiful, mentally unstable daughter. But if she thinks I only want her for her money, she's sadly mistaken.
"He was a gorgeous sinner, a siren of fault and virtue who sang to something inside my heart that yearned for duality. He wasn't all bad and I wasn't all good. We could be both, maybe even together."
The devil whispered in our ears. We listened. We obeyed. We sinned. Shall we repent? Or shall we take you down with us?
