Callan's Damaged Love Story Damaged Hearts Book 1
(Also July in The Calendar Men Series)
by Sonya Jesus Genre: Contemporary Romance
I don’t do love.
Or anything that can get broken…
I’m already broken enough.
If you’re looking for the perfect guy, with imperfect actions and an undamaged heart…Stop! Keep scrolling…because I’m not effing good at being good. I’m not boyfriend material. I fill my loveless heart with sex-filled nights and distance myself from any type of commitment—while I still have the power to. Soon, I’ll relinquish my freedom to adulthood and take over Cohen Enterprises, but until then, I own my independence. I breathe bad decisions, blink away my flaws, and enjoy the detached life I’ll never have again.
At least I try to. My guilt-free mornings and shameless nights abruptly stop when I make my next mistake with my brother’s girlfriend. Now, I can’t stop thinking about Delilah. She triggered my heart alive, and I’m torn between the girl I might be falling for and the only person I respect.
With everything I have to say, not even a letter makes its way out of my mouth. My short breaths intercalate with my rapid pulse, causing my insides to tremble. If I speak, my shaky voice will reveal how much she affects me, so I love her in silence. Ah. There’s that word again. I try replacing it with “like,”but it’s underwhelming. What we have between us is bigger than what she is ready to handle. Maybe even what I’m able to handle.
We freed our bodies to act, giving them the liberty to explore our desires, when our hearts were still imprisoned—hers to Jace and mine to fear. We upped the timeline on us, sabotaging any possibility of a future. Giving in again will keep us stuck in the same vicious loop of selfishness, neither of us caring about the consequences and both of us hurting each other in the process. We were more than just a careless accident of circumstance or a twisted game of fate.
At least, she means more than that to me.
She’s the blank page in my romance novel, full of unknown potential and suffocating uncertainty. When we put ink to page, like touch to bodies, our words will write a story that only our hearts can live. It will be unique and completely us, free of restrictions and clashing minds. Great,love is already fucking with my head. Making me soft.Well, not all parts of me, but I did sound like a girl.
