Some stories aren’t easy to tell.
Some situations aren’t easy to relive.
But I was raised to be strong—to hold my own. Because of it, I was hurt, torn down, beaten and even had my heart snatched right out of my chest.
But I’m ready now. It’s time for me to speak up. You want to know what really goes on inside my head, well I’m right here.
Real. Raw. Intense.
This is all me. Roy Sykes. This is my story, and trust me… its far from pretty.
Did you wonder why Roy was quiet, reserved and unapproachable?? Well we get our answer and so much more in this juicy book!! Roy’s story was one I didn’t see coming, and my heart broke for him over and over. The things that he had to do and be witnesses to was just..well yeah and then throw in a FIRST love and have your heart ripped to shreds in the most horrific way, yeah I can definitely see why the guy was kinda a dick..hell I’d be jaded too!!
So this is told in a dual pov!! We start off with Roy doing an interview and airing it all out!!
After the interview is published..what could happen right?? Yeah well this Is Shanora Williams we’re talking about her. So throw in first loves coming back, some secret meetings and let’s not forget the kitchen sink…ok ok kidding on the last one. But. really would it be a SW book without the angst, drama, love triangle(which by the way was very interesting).
So what happens..does Roy screw up with Kels(current gf) or does he go back to Rose(First Love). Or maybe its Kels first love that comes back..I did say it was a dual POV?!?! Have to read to find out..does FIRST love reunite or does TRUE love conquer all?!?!
A smile smothers my lips as I spot Roy standing in front of some fancy restaurant. He’s dressed in all black (as usual), but his hair is wavy, proving he most likely took a shower before reaching his destination. He’s looking around, and there are moments when he checks his phone. My smile continues as I start to walk toward him, but in no time, my smile evaporates. A girl rushes up to him, and I stop in my tracks, staring like a deer stuck in headlights. I’m… confused. The girl stands on her toes and wraps her arms around his neck, and somehow, a part of me shrivels away. I swallow to block the dryness in my throat. I can feel my bottom lip trembling… my palms getting sweaty. I don’t even realize I’ve dropped the bag in my hand or the cup holder containing the coffee until I’m storming towards him. My eyebrows are furrowed, fists clenched tight around my keys. The sharp metal of my keys is digging into my hand, but I don’t even realize it. I can’t seem to focus on anything but my boyfriend walking into some restaurant with this blonde beauty.
