Coerce by Candice Wright
I know what love is. After witnessing its devastation, I’ve shied away from it,
I never thought I’d ignore the red flags and wave a white one.
Surrendering to Atlas in the most delectable way,
I didn’t realize he’d been playing me all along
Until I found myself at his mercy.
They say love can heal all wounds,
But what about the scars left behind?
I don’t know what love is. I’ve never been touched by its light or fallen into its depths,
When I see something I want, I take it.
And right now, all I want is her.
Each move I make is calculated and methodical,
Until I have her exactly where I want her.
By the time she realizes it’s a trap, it will be too late.
She’ll never forgive me, and I’ll never set her free.
But I feel no guilt, nor remorse.
Not when I’ll own every inch of her; body, heart, and soul.
And not even Ivy herself will stop me.
Author note: If you’re looking for a White Knight, you might want to look elsewhere. Atlas is an Antihero in every sense of the word.
This book plays with the darker side of love such as obsession, infatuation, and the power plays made to obtain it.
