I’d never met anyone quite like Mathias Wade.
He was brooding and arrogant, but I loved him anyway.
Together we were wild and uncontained—a hurricane raging.
Then I had to leave, and words were exchanged that could never be undone.
But now I was back, and Mathias better watch out, because this bitch wasn’t finished with him.
Game. Set. Match.
All is fair in love and war, right?

Childhood friends that grew into more, Remy wasthe one constant in his life until she moved away. In anger, he lashed out andbroke the only girl he ever loved. With temptation around every corner Mathiasdrowns his sorrow in women and alcohol. When the band returns to their hometownfor the holidays the last thing Mathias expects is to run into Remy—but she’s back,and she’s not done with him.
I jumped up on the counter and hemoved to stand in front of me, bracing his hands beside my hips. I kicked mylegs against the cabinets like a little kid as he stared down at me intensely.I wasn’t sure what he was looking for in my eyes, but he must have found it,because he cupped my cheek and leaned in.
"This feels like when we wereyounger," he whispered. "Like no time at all has passed." His words echoed myprevious thoughts.
I closed my eyes, feeling hisbreath fan across my lips.
God, I’d missed him.
It didn’t seem possible to misssomeone I’d grown to hate, but I did.
I was pretty sure that whensomeone like Mathias came into your life they were impossible to forget.
He was like the sun, burning sobright that even once he was gone I was still blinded.
"Did you ever miss me?" I asked."Even once?" I held my breath, waiting for him to explode—because that wasMathias. He could be nice one minute and an asshole the next. I wouldn’t put itpast him to kick me out for my question.
Instead he surprised me by leaning in impossiblycloser and nuzzling my neck. "Always."
