This summer is supposed to be epic. 

New sister. New family. Same crew. 

The only thing I didn’t count on was her. 

Lux brings with her a whole new set of issues, danger, and bodies trailing our wake. 

When lines blur, my own self worth is tested. 

Being abandoned at a young age made me used to being alone. I had no-one until my best-friends came along and saved me, making them the only family I know. 

At first I’m cautious, but Lux soon becomes a target I’m determined to keep safe.   

A friend, I never thought I’d have. A liar, I never thought I’d needed. 

When lies and betrayal wrap us in darkness, neither of us will escape the storm. 



The summer was all the time I was given to earn my freedom.

What started as a ruse, quickly becomes a fight for my life.

I don’t want to lie. 

I don’t want to betray everyone who makes me feel at home.

I refuse to hurt Silas. 

He’s broken, damaged, and deadly. The type of man a girl should run from. 

But I always loved a challenge.

To escape the storm, we’ll have to trust in the one thing that has always let us down...love.

 Well, that escalated quickly. I really hope he’s not a stalker or has some sick fascination with this girl. I don’t want to be responsible for placing a girl in the same position I found myself in a few weeks ago. I do not know her and he seems adamant about me only checking in on her. 

“Deal,” I mutter, before I can convince myself to back out. My eyes slam closed, and my head bows until my chin hits my chest. I’ve either just made the biggest mistake of my life, or one that will keep me safe, out of harm’s way.  Something inside me already feels lighter. There’s a crackle of energy bouncing in my rib cage that wasn’t there before. Let’s hope that means I made the right decision for the girl and for me.
