Mackenzie Brooks is everything I’ve ever wanted.
Three years ago, she walked out of my life. No explanation. Just gone.
With the biggest fight of my career only weeks away, she walked back in.
I’ll do anything to protect her. Destroy anyone who tries to hurt her. When it comes to Mac, there isn’t a line I won’t cross.
I’ve loved her my entire life, and now that’s she’s back I won’t let her go.
She refuses to speak about the past, or the secrets I know she’s hiding.
I know she’s planning on running again. But when you love someone, you stay and fight. Even if you’re fighting blind.
Her hands snake around my back and she rests her forehead against my chest. I pull her tight, reveling in the warmth of her body. My muscles tense in awareness of how perfectly she fits against me.
I breathe in her scent, not wanting the moment to pass. “Let me fix this.”
“You don’t even know what I’ve done.” Her voice is muffled against my chest. “If you knew, you wouldn’t…I can’t do this.”
“Whatever it is, it’s in the past. Come home with me and we’ll figure things out.”
She shakes her head against my chest and mumbles incoherently. When she pulls back, there are tears running down her cheeks and her eyes are red. I know before she says the words that she’s going to run again. Whatever she’s hiding, it’s obvious she doesn’t trust me.
A cold chill wraps around me when she drops her hands and takes a step backwards.
“I need to go.”
“Mac.” Her name comes out as a rough plea, and I see her flinch.
“Don’t come back,” she whispers, before disappearing through the shelter’s doors.
Like hell I won’t. Losing her once nearly destroyed me. I won’t lose her again.
