Gabby Mastreoni has been in love with Christoff Scutari since she was four years old. Their fathers are in the same business, and nearly twenty years later, their families remain close. With four older brothers, Gabby leads a protected and sheltered life—until she and Christoff cross a line, and she discovers that love can hurt people.

Brie Masters left everything and everyone behind to begin again. Starting over in California, she’s found her new home. She soon learns though that she can run away from her past, but it will always be there. No matter how many miles she puts between herself and her former life, she is still running, reinventing herself—so much so that she’s not even sure who she is anymore.

And she has to ask herself, “Am I Brie, or am I still Gabby?”

“You know what? I am done. I thought we could … I thought …” I trail off, trying to remember what exactly I did think Cross and I would be when I came home. Friends? Faux siblings?

“You thought we could what?” he roars, and it catches me off guard. I blanch at his tone. “You left. For twenty-seven months, you fucking left.”

“Yeah, I left.”

“And you want to know if I missed you?”

“No, I don’t. I don’t know why I even bothered to ask.”


He looks away again, and I seize the opportunity to slip past him. He swings his arm out to catch me around the middle and stop my progress.

“Please let me go,” I demand, so only he can hear.

“Why? So you can run away again? You are awfully fucking good at that.”

Anger hits me like a ton of bricks. What did he expect me to do? Stay and suffer through him treating me like I was a kid? Stand by and watch him with his parade of women? Is he really so cruel that he would wish that on me?

“Go to hell,” I spit out again because my mind won’t let me think of anything else to say.

I jerk free of his hold and try once again to escape his presence. He is on my heels, and his arm goes above me and rests against the door as I try to pull it open.

“Why did you leave?”

“I had to.”

“Why, Gabby?”

“Because I needed to fall out of love with you, and I could not do that here,” I confess as tears fill my vision. I had no intention of ever telling him that.

“Did it work?”

I stand there, caged in by him, surrounded by his scent with his hot breath on my neck, and I know that, if I don’t get away from him soon, I am going to cave and confess all of my true feelings.

“Yes. It took a while, but I finally managed to step back and see that you were right all along. My feelings were just the foolish crush of a little girl.”

About that time, through the small window in the door, I see Angelica approaching from inside.

“Time’s up. Here comes your girlfriend.”
