There's Wild, Then There's You


Hes someone she cant trust

Shes someone he thinks he knows

Violet Wilson is a wallflower. Shy, serious, and accident-prone, shes got a bad habit of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. The night shes forced to pose with her friend might just be the worst time of allthats when she meets Jet Blevins. She knows better than to get involved with someone like him, but he touches her in ways she never expected, never wanted before.

On the outside, Jet is a typical rocker, an arrogant lead guitarist who unapologetically lives a wild lifestyle. But on the inside, hes battling demons and using the stage to escape the troubles of his past and the addictions of his present. Until the night he sees Violet standing at the back of the room. She brings his life into focus. She knows his secrets. Shes the girl he cant forget, and the one thing he craves more than his addiction.

But can they ever hope to have a future when their very foundation is nothing but lies?


I lick my lips before I raise my eyes to his. Part of me knows I should turn and run, foregoing common courtesies and niceties. Something in me, some deep and rarely used instinct that lives within, knows that once I meet those eyes, Ill be forever lost. It makes no sense, but I know it like I know my name and my eye color and the way my hair flips out on the ends when its rainy outside.

Despite my better judgment, I do it. I look up and up and up until I reach a blue so fathomless I feel like I could dive into and never reach the bottom. Like I could drown and never even know it.

But I cant do that. I cant dive in. Not with a guy like this. Ive seen what someone like this can do to a personturn that which was once whole and capable into nothing more than scattered pieces of wreckage and ruin.

Im Jet, he offers softly, his eyes never leaving mine.

Jet. Even his name is sexy, which makes me more uncomfortable.

Ridiculous! my rational, level-headed, slightly bitter side scoffs. It pipes up with its less bedazzled perspective, reminding me that guys like this are nothing more than predators. The love em and leave em type. And hes obviously worse than most, as evidenced by his attendance here. Apparently, hes got a real problem.

I give him a tight smile as I straighten away from him. Violet. Nice to meet you, I say, hurrying to continue. Excuse me please.

I slip on my familiar, no-nonsense persona like a protective shield, like the armor that has kept me from harm all these years. It has never failed me before; I dont expect it to now.

My head is high, my spine is rigid, and my imperviousness is firmly in place as I move past the dark and damaged stranger. With every step I take, I determine to put him out of my mind and never think of him again.
Until he speaks once more. His words make dents in my breastplate like armor-piercing rounds.

Its short, he calls from a few steps behind me.

Confused, I turn.

Knowing I shouldnt, still I turn.


My name. Its short.

Short for what?

I watch as he moves toward me, narrowing the space I only just created. He stops within inches and bends slightly forward, one side of his mouth pulling up into a self-deprecating grin. Jethro.

And, just like that, hes human. And vulnerable. And slightly imperfect. And even more dangerous to me than he was before.
