His father is dead, and it's my uncle's fault. We shouldn't be attracted to each other, but we can't resist.
Mason Reeves is the living embodiment of a family secret too awful to bear. When my cousin convinces him to come to Thanksgiving in the hopes of healing the past, she only creates a new problem.
He shouldn't make my heart flutter. I shouldn't be entertaining indecent thoughts.
And we definitely shouldn't be exchanging heated glances while my family sits just feet away.
I shouldn't reach out to him, but I can't help myself. He can't help himself either. In fact, he helps himself to every last inch of me.
I do nothing to stop it. I encourage it. I practically beg.
But this was never meant to last. I've always known, no matter how much I tried to pretend.
After all, it's not his history that will be our undoing.
