He kissed me. I slapped him.
That's the last time I thought about Ethan. Now he’s back, and screw him—he isn't allowed to break my heart and then show up years later looking like July in a fireman’s calendar and ruining my chances at running the Black Alcove bar. Nope. I have plans and they don’t include him. I tried to forget her. I failed.
The moment I saw Kelsey again I knew I was doomed. I have one task while I’m here, and having her one breath away makes me forget how to be the responsible man I’ve worked so hard to become.
