Breaking Her Bad (No Quarter Book 2) by Michelle Mankin
Kyle Murphy gave into temptation. On a hot summer school night, the Southside drug dealer tossed his usual caution aside. He disobeyed a direct order from his boss. He stayed in Lakeside with Claire. He shouldn’t have. He wasn’t who Claire thought he was. He wasn’t right for her. He was dark as night. She was bright as day. Being with her was like flying so high he touched the sun. But in the end, he paid a price more dear than he ever imagined.
Claire Walsh wanted Kyle. With his starry eyes and midnight hair, he was undeniably handsome. A dark, mysterious prince, he seemed to step out of the pages of a fairy tale. Kyle rescued her. He defended and protected her. The night they shared was magical. She hoped before the morning came that she might be able to change his mind about leaving. But in the end, he had to go, and his departure was more devastating than she ever imagined.
But that was then. When unforeseen circumstances throw the two star crossed lovers together again, this time they meet in Kyle’s dark world. In Southside, secrets are revealed. The lines between wrong and right, past and present are blurred. Choices must be made. Battles must be fought. Hearts are tested.
Risks greater than either imagined must be taken in order for both to have the ultimate reward.
Will Kyle and Claire get their happy ending? Or will their hearts shatter worse than before?
