Synopsis (according to Goodreads):
"She is magnetic to me. Every emotion she feels pulls me that much closer to her charm and energy. For reasons unbeknownst to me, I want her to know what she means to me." Jake Evans

For Jake Evans, life was as it should be. No responsibilities. He was the master at embracing his reckless lifestyle whenever it presented itself. Surviving on his ability to expertly hustle, fight and womanize, Jake could do it all; lived it all.

Raised in a rundown city, filled with crime and drugs, he had survived the death of an abusive mother and a life with an absent father while only having his brothers to depend on. His lifestyle became fast and Jake had lived it the only way he knew how, until the day he met Delilah.

Delilah St. James was the epitome of flawless. Brought up in an affluent southern household, Delilah's life had been planned from the moment she was born. She was raised to be the perfect socialite and daughter, and groomed to be the ideal wife. When a school internship moved her to Sulfur Heights for the summer, Delilah collided with the bitter reality of life outside her comfortable gated community when Jake Evans upset her perfect world.

Over the next two years, Jake and Delilah became best friends, embracing a friendship neither one was prepared to have, although they soon found it to be a relationship that neither one of them were willing to sacrifice.

A tragic turn of events brings Jake and Delilah together once again. Only this time, the feelings are different. Lines within their friendship are blurred. Everything they vowed never to do, becomes the very thing they cannot deny. Will Jake and Delilah's relationship withstand the changes surrounding them? Or will the emotions sever the two year friendship they'd found so hard to keep?

Excerpt One:

I have a feeling I'm going to regret this in the end, and this is the exact opposite of what my mother told me not to do, however when he looks at me the way he's looking at me now, it's impossible to come up with any other answer. I'm sucked in by his look, consuming the poison he oozes like it's the only drink of water I've had in days. Then I say the only thought that will register in my brain and pray this won't be a mistake. "Count me in."

Excerpt Two:

The crowd divides when he inches his way up to the bar, almost like they're intimidated by him. Then the women, shameless and slutty, will stare at Jake, almost begging him with their bodies to be the next chosen one. He never says a word, either; he only downs his shot of whiskey and stalks his female prey with his eyes. No conversation is started, yet he can leave them yearning the moment he shows his trademark smirk. I'm held captive by the way he commands a room. He never asks for the attention, he only seeks it when it suits him.

Excerpt Three:

"Love? Really, cupcake? You wouldn't know love if it walked up and smacked you in the face." Jake leans closer, dangerously close to my face. It would only take one slight movement and I could have my lips planted against his. "The only thing you know how to love is yourself."
