“You’re high.”

“Soooo fucking high. Jude had some good shit. I can’t feel my face. Here.” He grabbed my hand and pressed my fingers to his cheeks. “Can’t feel a thing.” Ezra smoothed my fingers up and down his cheeks. “You can touch me, and I can’t feel a thing. It’s the only way…” His eyes stared right into mine, two amber pools bewitching me.

His fingers curled around my pointer finger and dragged it over his mouth, along the seam of his lips. He bared his teeth, nipping the pad gently, sending a thousand tiny shivers through me. I smothered a whimper, not wanting to break whatever spell he’d cast. Because I knew this wouldn’t be happening if he wasn’t high and Carrick hadn’t tried to force himself on me.

“You’re touching me,” he said, a strange reverence in his voice. As if he couldn’t quite believe it. “You’re touching me and I don’t feel a thing.” A soft sigh slipped from his lips, making my stomach curl. In that moment, he sounded so content, so at peace, it put a lump in my throat.

“What happened to you, Ezra?” I whispered even though he’d closed his eyes.

“Bad things, buttercup. Bad, bad things.”


From USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author L A Cotton, comes an emotional enemies-to-lovers romance. Angst… drama… friendship… and football. Will you survive senior year?

Ashleigh Chase has always had big dreams.

But when she wakes up in hospital with no memory of how she got there, her bright future dissolves around her.

Ezra Bennet has always felt like the odd one out.

But this time, he really screwed up and has no choice but to face the consequences.

Forced to retake their senior year, Ashleigh turns to Ezra only to find him cold and cruel and determined to keep her at arm’s length.

He’s the guy she always wanted.

She’s the girl who was never good enough for him.

But now there’s a secret between them, one that she’s determined to uncover.

She thinks she can save him. But she doesn’t realize yet…

He’s the one who ruined her.

About the Author:

Author of over thirty mature young adult and new adult novels, LA COTTON is happiest writing the kind of books she loves to read: addictive stories full of teenage angst, tension, twists and turns.

Home is a small town in the middle of England where she currently juggles being a full-time writer with being a mother/referee to two little people. In her spare time (and when she’s not camped out in front of the laptop) you’ll most likely find LA immersed in a book, escaping the chaos that is life.
