Excerpt On The Rebound by L A Cotton
“You want this?” I smirked. “You want me to ruin you?”
She nodded. “Take your best shot, Messiah.” Damn, those words again.
She was so different.
Distant in a way I didn’t like.
My Calli had always been so soft and kind and warm.
But we weren’t the same people. The old Calli wouldn’t have been able to deal with the new Zach. So this was perfect. We could both fuck away our frustrations and then go our separate ways.
This wasn’t a reunion; it was an exorcism. A chance to finally purge myself of Calliope James once and for all.
I planned to fuck her so hard she never forgot me. And then I planned to walk away, for good.
