I travel through life dancing.
All I ever wanted to do was dance, as did my best friend. We'd made so many plans together, but one night an explosion changed it all. Only one of us survived, and I promised myself I'd succeed for us both. And I did, until an accident almost ruined my career, but Maze came back into my life when I needed him most. He pulled me out of the depths of my despair. But could I save him now?
I travel through life fighting.
It had always been Ivy; from the first moment I saw her leaping through the air like she had wings to lift her from the ground. But she was my dream, something I wanted more than anything else in my life. I promised myself I would stay away from her. Violence followed me everywhere and I tried to keep her far away from it. She was my point of illumination in the dark tumultuous world I lived in. But I could not stay away from her. Not when I knew she needed me. As much as I needed her. But could she accept me as I am?
Maze couldn’t believe the grace and beauty of the girl he saw dancing on the beach that summer. He is mesmerized not only by Ivy’s talent but by her exotic beauty, as well. The more time he spends with her, the more he wants to claim her for his own. He knows that his life as a MMA fighter is just too complicated and dangerous for that but he is going to make the most of the time that they have together. When tragedy strikes, it takes with it all hope that he will ever see her again.
“We each were on the roads we wanted to be. Those two weeks we spent together became a distant memory, both fond and painful. We still texted from time to time, usually birthdays, holidays and Xs at the end but that was it. Our relationship never had a chance. Still there were times in the middle of the night in that place between wake and sleep, I would remember that night we had together, still feel has arms around me, feel the connection to this other person that I have never experienced with another. Not even close. Then I’d remember what happened afterward. I hated those nights cause in the morning I woke up empty.”
“Yeah. I was where I needed to be with whom I needed. Life was good. I had won. I was never more wrong.”
