Starting Over

Ten years ago she climbed into my bed and gave me her innocence. The next day she was gone. I found out later she’d already been promised to someone else. Now she’s back and at my mercy. I have none…

Julie had mixed feelings about returning to her hometown, the place where she’d lost her heart and her innocence. The place where she’d left that heart long ago, through no fault of hers. She’d selfishly gone to him that one night, wanting something for herself before starting the life her parents had mapped out for her.

But now that life was in tatters, gone up in smoke, just as she knew it would. But would he believe that she never meant to deceive him?

Now she finds herself at his mercy, working in his bar to make ends meet, and battling the feelings that had never left.
