“You’re a heartbreaker, Cristiano. That’s what you are, and I’m not letting you break mine.” I told him, straight and simple, but even after I did, my heart didn’t seem all too convinced at my own words.
I swallowed nervously, his tight grip on my waist as the rain dropped continuously on us seemed to just be getting heavier by the second. I could barely see anything, except for the way his striking hazel eyes still pierced into mine and I felt glued to the ground.
A confident smirk of some sort formed on his lips, and just before I could react negatively, he pulled me closer with his arm and I hit his chest. The distance I had been trying to keep was immediately diminished and I felt him, all of him - his warmth, his breath, his desire… to kiss me.
He leaned closer to my ear and whispered words that sent tingles down my spine.
“Who said anything about breaking your heart, Donovan? Didn’t you ever stop to think that maybe, I just might want to keep it?”
Then he kissed me and oh my god, I forgot how to breathe.
It was only supposed to be a funny dare. After all, who is Thalia Donovan, but someone who never backs out on any dare?
So when she’s asked to sneak into a room and steal boxers, she was all for it thinking, what could possibly go wrong? Instantly, she finds her answer after she gets caught red-handed by the owner of the very clean and neatly-folded black underwear.
All of a sudden, Thalia will find herself in a difficult situation that not only will challenge her mindset, but her heart… as we come to find out that it isn’t just any boy whose room she sneaked into. It is in fact, someone she has tried to forget after he had left out of nowhere, but has come back different from the way she last remembered him.
Cristiano Ferreira is a good boy. Correction, was a good boy. He lived a happy life with his friends and family, but one day, out of nowhere, his mother walks out of their house and never comes back.
This in turn leaves a scar, and a part of his heart will always be broken, eternally searching for a love he once believed but was taken from him by the abandonment of his own mother.
He leaves California, and comes back completely changed. A player, a rebel, a bad boy.
He is set on doing whatever he wants, whenever he wants, but this all changed after he meets her… again. He never used to think much of her. She was just a childhood friend, his best friend’s little sister.
Suddenly, it was more than that. She starts to make him feel things he never thought he could feel again.
Will his ice cold heart melt in the hands of Thalia, or will it forever remain frozen?
