Everytime I try to be friends with her and maybe something more yet the pain and heartache all those months ago slices me to pieces. I never in my life thought Skye would be like that just throw away what we had. Living in the same city with her there is nowhere to hide and I am trying really hard to get over it but how can I forgive her when she ripped my soul apart.
I used to be a manwhore, not caring who I fucked never thinking about them a second time until Beatrice. She hates my guts and yet I still want her after everything that has happened.

Everybody else is happy Theo and Alex constantly remind me of what I could have had with Beatrice. It used to be about sex but just being with Beatrice makes me feel happy. I dream about her every day and she is constantly on my mind I need to get my woman back.
I have never seen my cousin like this. Conrad used to be the party guy, the one who just looked at a girl and they hung on him. Ever since Beatrice left him he has well been acting like a mopey girl. Alex tells me I shouldn`t butt in but this happiness I feel for Alex is just making me want everybody to be happy. I never thought I would just settle for one girl but being Alex is proving to showing she is not my usual type of girl she is so much more.

Being in jail and having her see me like this is not what I want her to live through. She deserves a better man, someone who will give her all she needs a man. I still don`t know what Ryan see`s me he should give up on me as well. All this love is not for a guy like me but I crave the visits just for a glimpse of my Silke to know she is okay. Can I ever be the man she needs in her life?

I have to say Cayson and Skye are making me pull my hair out with their feelings right now. E.L. Todd just shows so much heartache and pain between them its sad yet frustrating at times. After all the books I have read I am definitely still amazed with Slade. Gone is the partying guy and is even starting to sound mature with Trinity yet still bickering making their love so passionate. So much going on in this book makes me wonder what else can E.L. Todd do for each person in this book. Betrayal, love, passion, friendship this book in the series will make you be pulled everywhere. Loved it.
