The Destruction You Desire (Maddison Kings University #5) by Tracy Lorraine
After six years of living in denial, Luca is finally faced with the truth. A brutal discovery he refused to accept when I needed him most.
Now the vengeance he so desperately craves isn’t directed at me, but the monster responsible for destroying all our lives.
That might put us on the same side this time, but that doesn’t mean I can forgive him for not believing me. Or for hating me when I loved him.
Just when I think the darkness couldn’t drag us down any further, it threatens to swallow me whole.
Only this time Luca is right there beside me, reminding me how things used to be… fighting for me. Begging for my forgiveness.
Something I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to give him.
Until he proves that the boy I fell for still exists, underneath the one who broke my heart.
And I begin to wonder if there ever was a question about our future.
The Destruction You Desire is the fifth book in my Maddison Kings University series and the second book in a duet for Peyton and Luca. It’s a dark bully romance that contains mature content and demanding alphaholes that some readers may find disturbing. You have been warned.
Excerpt The Destruction You Desire by Tracy Lorraine
Slamming the door behind me, I cut off the complaints of the others who are waiting and I flip the lock.
I take a step toward her and she takes a hesitant one back.
“W-what do you want, Luc?”
I consider her question for a few seconds.
“Honestly. I have no fucking clue.”
She gasps when she runs out of space behind her and bumps up against the wall.
“I-I’m sorry you found out like that. That wasn’t—” Her words are cut off when my hand flies out and pins her against the wall by her throat.
She swallows nervously, her body trembling as tears pool in her eyes.
“Stop,” I boom. “Just stop.”
My chest heaves as I stare at her almost cowering away from me.
I hold her wide eyes for a beat before I drop mine to her pink lips. They’re so full and I already know just how sweet they taste. Then I drop lower to her dress. It’s the first time I really get to look at her and fuck.
“You look…” Beautiful. I swallow down the word as the confusion I’ve battled with all day only gets stronger.
Make her yours.
“Tell me he didn’t touch you. Tell me he didn’t take what’s mine.”
