Book Description:
The steamy sequel to the New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal bestselling New Adult novel DAMAGED by H.M. Ward.

Home isn't supposed to be dangerous, but for Sidney it is. Returning home means that she has to face her past. It's not just the man who hurt Sidney that makes it horrible, but the family that didn't believe her. They were dead to her, but now that her mom is really dying things seem different. It's a chance to set things right.

What Sidney doesn't realize is that she's dragging Peter into a collision course with his past. Peter must deal with the demons haunting him if he wants to move forward with Sidney. He's willing to give up everything for her, even wade deeper into his past life to help her move forward. But, Peter isn't sure if he can get over what happened to him in New York.

Dean’s grinning ear to ear. “I can fix that, and buy you pretty ladies lunch if you like.”

“No. Go away.” I’d planned on ignoring him, but Dean won’t leave me alone. He keeps brushing into me, touching me, like it’s an accident. He follows me back to the hood and shoves in between me and Millie.

“We’re fine,” Millie tells him. “You should be on your way.”

“Awh, how sweet. Your little friend thinks she can protect you. What happened to the teacher?”

“Fuck off, Dean.” I’m mad now. I hate him. I hate everything about him, everything he’s done to me. My life would have been so different if Dean never came along. I’d run him over with the car if it would reset everything, but it won’t. 

Dean feigns offense. “Who taught you to talk like that? Such a dirty mouth on such a pretty girl. Just the way I like it.” He gives me a wolfish grin. Millie makes an annoyed sound, but Dean ignores her. While I’m under the hood, Dean slips his hand onto my back. His fingers tease at the edge of my shirt and brush against the bare skin at my waist. The touch makes me jump. 

I don’t think anymore, I just act. I swing my fist at his face and scream, “Leave me alone!”

Dean is smiling, acting like this is a game, until I land the punch on the side of his cheek. Anger flashes in his eyes. He backhands me before I can blink. The wrench goes flying out of my other hand and I stumble back. Millie screams, and I can hear the old guy yelling, but there are no words, just blurred sounds as pain shoots through my face. 

Dean grabs my wrist and starts pulling me across the parking lot. “Walk or I’ll make you wish you had.”
