My biggest fear is that my past will catch up with me. It haunts me at night. I must keep moving, blend in, and never look back. 
  
Selfishly, I head back to the one place I never thought I'd return to. The one place where I can be myself. The place where I hurt everyone I loved. I'm selfish because I know returning puts them all in danger.

  Author's Note:
  I wrote the first draft of this book two years ago and have been editing it (off and on) ever since. This is the book that means the most to me and I thought I'd never share it with the world because I'd never be happy enough with it.
  I recently heard about Wattpad and believe it is the perfect place for me to share my "baby." With the help of this community, I hope to finally share the story that means so much to me.

Why would she immediately assume a customer in the bar is a threat? Use of 'shadow' raises ominous feel again! You are good at this!
Ok, that answers my earlier question! Haha! Shouldn't have been in such a hurry to work it out!
Subtle the way you use the ref to her seat belt to show he's the more responsible, and poss a little older?
Again, a suggestion of readiness in the face of danger/threat! Love the way you build the tension again.
Mace? As in to throw in an attacker's face? All sorts of possibilities are now leaping to mind!
I get the impression he deliberately said it so that he'd be overheard, because he knew it would make her happy?
