It was supposed to be one wild night in Nashville. Another night flirting with strangers; another night pretending I wasn't desperately lonely. I met a man with pain in his eyes and lies on his lips. A man even more isolated and damaged than I was. For one passionate night, we held together the broken pieces of each other's souls. When he shows up in my life months later, it can't be coincidence. I don't even know if he gave me his real name, but I crave to learn more about the enigmatic man who set my body on fire. He told me he does things that haunt him to keep people like me safe. He carries the weight of the world on his shoulders and terrible secrets in his heart. Indulging in our intense connection could leave me more broken than ever, but I can't help hoping we might find a way to heal each other. I thought I no longer believed in soulmates, but this damaged, scarred man could be my happily-ever-after.
