I can’t escape the past.
I’m broken and damaged.
All I can do is keep moving forward.
What I don’t expect is one cop in particular to get under my skin.
Making me want something more.
He hates me.
Everywhere I turn, he’s there, watching me.
Waiting for me to screw up.
I’m not going to give up, though.
Not when I finally found something that makes me happy.
I know how short life can be and I’m not backing down.
One drunken promise is going to ruin my life.
I told him I’d watch out for his wife if he died.
Coming home and seeing her will be my undoing.
She’s everywhere I go.
Everywhere I turn.
The thoughts going through my head …
Well, they’re enough to send me straight to hell.
Parker Hayes invades every aspect of my life.
One drunken promise… That’s what it circles back to.
I’ve been trained to go balls to the wall with every mission.
Never back down. Never surrender. Never walk away.
I’ll never let her become collateral damage.
