“I take it your little boyfriend doesn’t know about us.”
Gathering my hair, I wrap my scrunchie around it. “That’s because there is no us.”
The tip of his tongue sweeps along his lip ring, and his fiery gaze drifts down my body. “The bite marks on your pussy beg to differ.”
Forcing myself to pay no heed to the rush of embarrassment his statement causes, I survey the stage where George is playing.
Sweet and safe—I tell myself again, like it’s my new mantra.
“Look, what happened last night is never happening again.” Peeling my stare away, I meet Phoenix’s, so he knows I’m dead serious. “I like George. He’s a nice guy.”
Something he’ll never understand because he’s most definitely not one.
He doesn’t say a word for so long, I internally rejoice.
About time the asshole finally got it through his thick skull.
I’m debating walking over to the snack table when he leans down.
His warm breath tickles my ear when he speaks. “Too bad nice guys don’t make your panties wet.”
A wolfish grin spreads across his lips as he pulls something out of his pocket.
The retort I was constructing vanishes into thin air the moment I see my panties.
“We need you up here, Phoenix,” someone calls out.
The look he gives me is so vulgar, I’m glad Chandler walked off to take a phone call.
Relief fills me as he treks over to the stage because the more distance between us right now, the better.
However, it’s short lived.
Shock roots me to the spot—followed by a torrent of dread—when he ties my panties around his mic stand.
He was the talented bad boy everyone wanted.
I was the irrelevant geek everyone hated.
He was the sun…drawing all of us in.
I was a black hole…taking up space.
He was destined to be a star.
I was destined to remain an insignificant no one.
Until he made me believe I was special…
And then he destroyed me.
I never thought I’d see Phoenix Walker again after he broke my heart, but fate had other plans.
One tour. Eight weeks. Forty shows.
Countless opportunities to make him pay.
The world thought he was a God…
But I knew the truth.
