Be My Downfall by Lyla Payne - Cover Reveal

Toby Wright has always prided himself on being one of the most normal guys at Whitman University. He loves his parents, has a great job lined up after graduation, and with the exception of attempting to cross the unbalanced Sebastian Blair sophomore year, has kept his nose pretty clean.

But the rich never have empty closets, and memories long stashed away come spilling free when notorious party girl Kennedy Gilbert almost dies in his bathroom.

Nobody really knows how Kennedy manages to stay in good standing at Whitman
she never goes to class, doesnt pretend to care about her future, and as far as people can tell, is never sober. This isnt her first meeting with a stomach pump, but it is the first time shes woken up to Tobys concerned brown eyes. Despite the fact that she prefers life without friends, he gets under her skin with his insistence on playing her guardian angel.

No one knows better than Toby that people can only be saved if they want to be, but the realization that she has no one else draws him back into the shadows of Kennedy
s lifeand eventually into her bed. But she long ago came to terms with a truth that Toby refuses to accept: she doesnt want to be rescued, she only wants to forget.

Unwilling to give up on her, Toby
s dragged under by this broken girl and her dark, twisted Whitman University he never guessed existed. If he struggles to the surface, hell abandon someone he loves for the second time in his life. If he doesnt, it wont be long until they both drown.



Ive long had a love of stories. A few years ago decided to put them down on the page, and even though I have a degree in film and television, novels were the creative outlet where I found a home. Ive published Young Adult under a different name, but when I got the idea for Broken at Love (my first New Adult title), I couldnt wait to try something new and Im hooked.  In my spare time I watch a ton of tennis (no surprise, there), play a ton of tennis, and dedicate a good portion of brain power to dreaming up the next fictitious bad boy wed all love to meet in real life.
