*This is Book 2 of a three-part SERIES and NOT a standalone. Milo: "There is nothing worse in this life than being in love with someone who doesn't love you back. This is what I am when I am around her. Her hero when she accepts me. Her biggest nightmare when she rejects me. I have come to that conclusion. I can't fight it. I can't explain it to her because I could never explain it to myself either."Raven: "The truth is, I have always been slow to react. I don't lash out because I need time to analyze things at my own speed. People perceive that as me being logical and mature; wise beyond my age. I am not. I am indecisive and emotional. I just don't show it. I have flaws. Lots of them. Like every human being, I am allowed to have them. I don't want to cover them up as anything else."This is a dark romance. It contains discussions about the pandemic, mental health issues, and mature new adults. It also contains dubious situations that some readers might find offensive. Dark romance is subjective. Some readers have found this book to be a light read while others were sensitive to the material. Milo isn't a normal romance hero, and some might not consider him a hero at ALL. So, please don't read this if any of the above bothers you. PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS PART OF A SERIES AND NOT A STANDALONE!
