No one ever expected much from him. 

Joshua Elijah Griffin, IV is on his last chance. A stint in rehab and a transfer to a new
school has scared him into putting his life on track. He’s determined to live
up to his family’s expectations, but on the first day of class, Josh meets a
girl, and he knows his father won’t approve, but in Carrington, he sees a
kindred spirit. He's willing to give up everything to be with her.

No one ever thought
she was special.

Carrington Olivia
Butler is ready to shine. Always in the shadows of her siblings, she goes away
to college to break out of her shell. All Carrington wants is to feel special.
Josh's attention is exactly what she craves, but their intense and sometimes
volatile relationship is more than what she bargained for.

Josh’s demons return,
and Carrington’s feelings fade, but both aren’t ready to give up hope. They
give their love one last shot to survive, but hope, may not be enough.

**This book contains
adult subject matter. Not intended for young readers.**

~*~EXCERPT~*~
I reached out and
grabbed her, wrapping my arms around her waist. She resisted,
pushing and punching my arms and shoulders. I wanted her to
fight me. To hit me and scream and show me what I did to her.
After a while, she collapsed in my
arms, exhausted from fighting, but her sobs
continued for several more minutes. My neck and chest
dampened from her tears, and her whole body convulsed when she released an
uncontrollable series of coughs. It shook us both, but I held on tight. The
vibration of our bodies glued together made me hard, and I found it difficult
to concentrate. I tried to push those thoughts out of my head. I wanted her to
understand.
It tore me up to know I caused her
an ounce of pain. I held her tight with one arm and stroked her back with the
other. Each stroke, her body softened. When her last bit of energy drained, I
turned us around and her back was up against my car. I placed my hands on her
hips; she whimpered as I lifted her and sat her on the trunk.
Her damp hair stuck to her face,
and I pushed it away. I wiped her eyes and lifted her chin.
"How could you leave me like
that?" she asked. The desperation in her voice
fucked with my mind. I hated myself.
"I'm sorry," I whispered
as my lips sweep across her cheek. She tensed. I
expressed my gratitude by kissing her other cheek. She
whimpered, and my heart
cracked.
I kissed her forehead, dropped my
hands to her waist, and her head fell forward without my support.
"Why?" she asked. Her
voice sounded defeated, but defiant. She wanted an
answer. She deserved an answer.
"Since I meet you, I've had
the time of my life." I kissed her jawline as I placed
my hands on her thighs. “I’ve never met anyone like you
before." As my lips moved to her ear, she leaned into me. I pushed her
legs apart. I wanted to hold her, get closer to her. She relaxed more with
every kiss. "I want to be with you so bad." When I reached her
earlobe, I bit it, and she moaned. "But eventually you're going to leave
me."
