Life was nearly stolen from me.
In the blink of an eye, everything changed.
I’m no longer the charismatic, hot playboy Hornet.
I’m irrevocably altered.
Damaged both inside and out.
I can’t think. I can’t function. I can’t live.
Not with all this darkness and pain dragging me into unknown depths.
Some days, I wish I never woke up.
But then life takes an unusual turn.
A sweet, sad little girl might be mine.
My dream job is gifted to me.
I have a doctor who cares.
Things are looking up.
One mouthy, bratty, mean beautiful young thing complicates everything.
She sees the darkness inside that I’m trying desperately to hide from everyone.
Pokes. Prods. Infuriates.
This girl won’t stop until she’s touched every scar, both inside and out.
I’m not sure how I’m supposed to mentally heal and be a better man when I have the most unapologetic, unpopular mean girl shining her light into every dark crevice inside me.
Annoying. A nuisance. Not worth my time.
I’ll shake her off eventually.
She’s nothing to me..
But try telling my heart that…
This is a full-length high school friends-to-lovers, forbidden, and new adult romance with high angst, suspense, and gutting emotion. It’s book four in the Horn River Hornet series that all have interlinking storylines. River Knight shouldn’t be read as a standalone and is the final book in the four-book series that gives each Hornet a story. The first book in the series is the only MM story. The others, including this one, are MF. The Horn River Hornets are now a complete series!
