“Sawyer Kingston is an asshole.” The bitter wind whips off the lake,
chilling my cheeks but does nothing to douse the white-hot anger
speaking his name causes. I guess some things you never really get over. You
may have a momentary lapse in judgment, but reality always comes crashing
back down on you.
I grasp my paper cup a little too tightly between my mitten-covered hands
and glare at my best friend, Quinn. We’re huddled together on my new front
lawn, watching the movers unload the first round of my furniture into the
lakeside cottage I’m renting in Kroydon Hills. I haven’t lived here year-round
since I was seventeen years old, before I left for college. More accurately,
before I ran away. Now, ten years later, I stand here and inhale another deep
breath of frigid air rolling off the frozen lake that holds so many memories,
and my entire body relaxes, knowing it’s time.
Quinn looks over at the stunning house next to mine and groans. “I said
Hudson Kingston lives in that house, not Sawyer. And seriously, Wren, just

Quinn’s dad coaches the local pro hockey team, the Philadelphia
Revolution, and she’s their office manager, who’s apparently required to

there, and I never told her about that day. I never told anyone. Guilt is a bitch.
“I can’t believe your dad hasn’t retired yet. Every now and then, he takes a
meeting in the Revolution offices, and I get a chance to see him.”
My dad has been a senior vice president for King Corp., the Kingston
family’s multi-billion-dollar conglomerate which owns the Philadelphia
Revolution, for longer than I’ve been alive. He and the late John Kingston
went to graduate school together.
When either of them remembered they had families at home, we’d all
vacation and celebrate holidays together.
But that was a lifetime ago.
“Come on, Wren. Don’t worry about seeing Sawyer. He never makes it to
the hockey games. He’s always working late at his bar. Just come with me
tomorrow. It’ll be fun.” She drops her chin and bats her lashes at me with an
exaggerated pout. “Please?”
“Fine,” I huff as we step back and out of the way of the large men
carrying my couch into the house, nearly tripping on a . . . What is this?
I bend down and pick up the chewed-up piece of black rubber. “Is this a
