Where love runs wild...
I close my eyes and take a minute, waiting for that feeling they say is supposed to hit once you step over the threshold.
And I wait.
But it’s the opposite of what I’d expected—what I’d anticipated.
There is no liberation.
There is no tranquillity.
There is not even an ounce of fucking relief.
I feel nothing but a cold, hard case of uncertainty and dread while the devil dances on my shoulder, laughing with glee—that same devil who brought death and destruction to my door in every possible form you can imagine.
My fists ball at my sides. My chest is tight. My heart is racing.
Today is a new day. It’s supposed to be my new start—a new chapter in my life—yet here I stand, still carrying the haunts that weigh heavy. The ones that wake me in the darkest hours. The ones that taunt me like there’s no tomorrow and continue to suck the life out of me. That’s all I carry within me now and probably always will.
I may have served the last twelve months within the white walls of St Brides Correctional Centre, but the next walk I’m about to endure feels like a death sentence of its own.
It’s something I’ve always longed for, but my life is no bed of fucking roses. There is no sweetness to be captured. There is no color amongst the dark.
There is nothing.
I am nothing.
I will never be anything but nothing.
Nora Nelson invades my thoughts so strongly I find it hard to breathe.
However, she is my best friend’s kid sister, and that alone makes her forbidden.
When she leaves for college, it should be the diversion I need, except, I find myself craving her all the more.
In a world so frayed, she is the one thing that brings me hope—the guidance I never realized I needed—and when tragedy strikes, I vow to protect her with everything I have.
There is just one problem: her brother.
Torn between loyalty and love, I’m ready to fight the battle I know is coming.
Even if it has the potential to ruin everything.
Even if it means losing everything.
Even if it means losing her.
Nora in Gravity is the sister to Asher in Addiction. Fall in love with the Nelson family now and start reading.

★ SAY YOU'LL BE MINE TEASER ★
His words decorate my skin, causing the hair on the back of my neck to stand as my entire body yearns for him. Never before have the words of a man impacted me in a way that I feel them deep in my core.
He’s close—dangerously close—causing my heart to race that same sprint it’s always done when he is near, only the closer he gets, the faster it beats, taking the breath from me as he does. He teases the tip of his thumb over the cupids bow of my lips and I suddenly find myself in a situation where my heart and mind are playing tug of war: my head screaming that the man in front of me belongs to my sister and my heart pleading with me for just a taste.
Just a taste.
