Like You Should (Devilbend Dynasty Book 3) by Kaydence Snow
From International Bestselling author Kaydence Snow, comes a student-teacher romance full of suspense and forbidden heat.
My life is a mess.
No plans for the future, constantly disappointing everyone, and now some creep is threatening me, making me do reprehensible things.
Oh! And a teacher is somehow involved too. Easton Monroe is strict, aloof, and not at all what everyone at school thinks he is. The more I dig beneath his neat shirts and disapproving frowns, the more I catch feelings for the complicated man.
I have to figure him out – before we do something we’ll both regret.
My life is a lie.
In a job I can’t stand, alone and miserable, the anonymous psycho blackmailing me is the only person I speak to regularly.
In case I didn’t have enough to stress about, a student is being targeted by the same psycho. Harlow Mead is stubborn, brave and so much more than she lets people see. She’s determined to fight and more beguiling the more I get to know her.
I have to get us out of this deadly situation – before I ruin us both.
**Like You Should is a full-length standalone dark high school romance. This is Harlow’s story.
Excerpt Like You Should by Kaydence Snow
It’s ok.” His breath tickled the hair on my forehead as he whispered – so close. “It’s going to be ok. We’ll figure this out.”
I tipped my head back to look him in the eyes, the hood of my coat falling off. “Will we?”
“We have to.” He said it with such conviction, I had no choice but to believe him, but I suddenly seemed to have forgotten how to speak. I couldn’t force my mouth to form words. All I could do was stare into his eyes as his arms warmed me and his smell reminded me of long summer days on the beach – fresh and warm and happy. His eyes made me feel like I was both drowning and saved at the same time.
I wondered what his lips would taste like. Would they be cold from the biting night air? Or would they be as warm as his embrace?
As if he was reading my mind, his gaze dropped to my lips and he swallowed, his Adam’s apple bobbing. I gasped. No fucking way.
I was done lying to myself and pretending I wasn’t hot for teacher. This insane situation was definitely becoming more complicated because of my new inconvenient feelings. I never in a million years expected that teacher might be hot for me too.
