Building Faith (Long Beach #2)
I’m the type of guy parents warn their daughters to stay away from. Hell, I’m worse. Much worse. I have a thing for restraints, and my bedroom has a figurative revolving door. I take pleasure the only way I’ll accept it, and I have an endless supply of women willing to experience my kind of kink.
The second I lay eyes on innocent, little Faith Preston, my world is turned upside down. Not only does the little blonde hijack my mind and body, but she also has me thinking of things I didn’t think I’d ever have in my life. Things like normalcy. Companionship. She even has me thinking of the possibility of a relationship—something that I’ve always been adamant on never having. One little slip of a woman has me rethinking everything I’ve forced myself to become in hopes of avoiding my past.
There’s one slight problem. Scratch that—it’s a big ass problem, and he goes by the name of Caleb. He’s my best friend, and he just happens to be Faith’s cousin. He’s also threatened my favorite body part if I should ever touch her. I take his warnings seriously, because Faith has a past that still haunts her in everything she does. Never before have I wanted to ease someone else’s pain more than I want to forget my own. I don’t ever want to be the one to cause her further harm, but how do I stay away from the one person that feels so right in my life?
Everyone has a past regret, whether it be a brief moment of bad decision making, or a past relationship that caused more harm than good. I have four years of regret. Four years of bad decision making. Four years of losing myself to what my ex wanted. I don’t know who I am anymore.
Then I meet Ace.
He wakes up a part of me that has never stirred until now. He makes me realize that I’m not truly living unless I’m living for myself and no one else. Ace encourages me to break the rules I’ve lived by for so many years, and he opens my eyes to all the things I’ve been missing out on. I never thought I’d trust a man again, but Ace seems to understand me like no one else does. I feel alive with him.
But when our mutual attraction becomes too strong to ignore…it changes everything. How do we hold on to what we have without the rest of the world destroying it? Better yet, how do we overcome our pasts to build the kind of relationship that we both so clearly want and need?
More importantly, do I even have a future to fight for? Because my past won’t let me go, my past has followed me, and it wants to destroy everything I’ve built and everything I am. My past won’t leave me alone until it’s sure I’m no longer breathing…
