"When somebody is simply attracted, attached to another person, they're nowhere. Then suddenly they're everywhere. It's inevitable, Carter. I don't choose to push you away. I just need you to pull me closer." I look into the glowing orbs that are his eyes. I should have just listened to him. Perhaps never spoken to him again. "I don't care. No relationship has to be established. All I know is that I don't want love. I just want you. That's all I will ever need." "There's no time for love, Carter." "Then just choose." he places his warm hands on my waist and gently pushes my shorts down. "Shower, or bed?" "Both." * Lust and love are dangerous. Intimacy can be a willingness to expose yourself to vulnerability. Police officer Carter Mason - a heartless, bipolar brute with severe anger issues and beautiful, shy, graduated student Sage Cartwright are definitely not a match made in heaven. For him lust is all that matters, love is an unwanted side affect. Love is all she really wants. When the two cross paths by living opposite each other, their oddly intimate attraction may get the better of them... or her. Can Carter destroy his past demons? Can he get over the past, or will he lose the only one he loves forever?
