Jaxson is arrogant, angry and aggressive. Yet he’s also beautiful, strong and honorable. I unconditionally and irrevocably love every damaged part of him. And for the boy, who didn’t believe in love, he would always and forever have mine. -Julia Sinclair 

Julia was different from anyone I’d ever met. I never thought someone so good and genuine existed until her. The more I saw of her the more I became addicted to her. Every time I was around her she would destroy some of the darkness that lurked inside of me. She made the bad shit in my life seem not so terrible. Then, before I knew it, I had fallen for a girl from another world. -Jaxson Reid 

* * * 

Julia Sinclair is your typical innocent good girl with a heart of gold. At sixteen she moved to Sunset Bay, South Carolina, to live with her Grams after losing her mother to cancer. This is where she met some of the best friends she will ever have and one in particular who will forever hold her heart. 

Jaxson Reid is your typical tattooed bad boy. His past and soul is as dark as the tattoos he bares. He flies through life and girls with no attachments and no emotions... until he met her. 

One fateful night brought Julia and Jaxson together. They formed a friendship and a bond so strong it was unbreakable. Jaxson fought the temptation of anything more with Julia because he knew he would never be good enough for her. When he found his control slipping he left the one girl, who meant everything to him, to join the Navy. 

But one passion-filled night has Jaxson letting go of fighting temptation which will forever alter their relationship. 

A few years later Jaxson comes home to make things right with the one girl who’s ever meant anything to him. Except someone isn’t happy that Jaxson has returned. Someone who thinks Julia is theirs and they will stop at nothing to make sure it stays that way... forever. 

Now Jaxson will not only fight to protect Julia but will also battle the new and existing demons that haunt his soul. 

This is a New Adult Romance and is told from both character’s pov. Due to strong sexual content, coarse language and mature subject matter this book is not suitable for anyone under the age of 18. 


I wake up to my phone ringing and moan, feeling like I have been hit by a truck. I 
squint with my red puffy eyes at my screen and see Kayla’s number. Oh god, what 
time is it? Checking my clock next to me I see it’s 7:40 am. Shit! The ferry leaves in 
20 minutes. I shoot out of bed and take a quick peek in the mirror. Yup, I also look 
like I’ve been hit by a truck. Darn. I don’t have time to make myself presentable so I
quickly throw my hair up in a high messy bun, throw a cardigan over my black booty
shorts and matching tank that I wore to bed. I forgo a bra knowing there’s not 
enough time to put one on. I grab a pair of the biggest sunglasses I own to hide my 
puffy blood-shot eyes and bound down the stairs. As I’m putting my flip-flops on 
Grams peeks in from the kitchen.
“Julia, are you okay? Where are you going so early?”
“I don’t have time to explain right now Grams but I need to see Jaxson before he 
leaves. I have to make things right.” I feel bad running out the door when she’s 
calling my name but I’m so scared I’m not going to make it in time, so I don’t stop.
I drive as fast as I dare, praying I don’t get pulled over and arrive 5 minutes later at 
the harbor. I almost forget to shut the car door in my haste. There’s a small crowd 
gathered on the dock waiting to board the ferry. I spot Jaxson right away and see 
he’s about to walk on. Shit! The dock is long and I’m quite a distance away.
“JAXSON!” I scream his name and start running faster than I ever thought possible. 
He seems so far away and I’m crying so hard, praying he hears me. After the third 
time of screaming his name he finally hears me, he stops and turns around to see 
me charging at him. He looks stunned for a minute but then drops his bag and 
starts striding towards me. When I reach him I jump and throw myself at him. My 
arms wrap around his neck and my legs around his waist.
“I’m so sorry, please forgive me. I don’t care if you don’t love me back, I swear I 
don’t. I can’t lose you Jaxson, I need you in my life. Please don’t leave hating me.” I 
don’t know how I manage to get all those words out through my broken sobs but I 
Jaxson puts me down and cradles my face in his hands. When I look up I see his 
eyes are brimmed red with unshed tears. He rests his forehead on mine, “I could 
never hate you Jules. You mean more to me than anyone else in my life. If I had it in 
me to love someone, it would be you,” his voice cracks and I grab him, sobbing 
hysterically in his chest.
