He is everything I want but know I can never have.

Every fiber of my being has ached for Luke from the very first moment we met. However, with my parents’ legacy of toxic obsession woven into my DNA, I know love is pain and should be avoided at all costs. I’m unloved and unlovable. Still, in moments of weakness, I allow myself to imagine what it would be like if I was the kind of woman who deserved the love of a man like him.

She is hiding in plain sight, waiting for me to find her.

Marnie has had my heart from day one, and always will. It’s just a shame I couldn’t muster the words to tell her so when we first locked eyes. It’s a failing I will live to regret for years to come. However, I’m determined to make things right, even if it takes me a lifetime. I need her to know she is enough. In fact, she is more than that. She is everything.

I knew as soon as he opened the door that something was different. Arlo was different. Having spent so long as a kid watching him, waiting for him to notice me, I was pretty good at reading his body language. He could often be morose, surly, and downright rude, but today was not one of those days. He was giving off strangely upbeat and positive vibes.

I shook the thought from my mind and greeted him in our normal way, gliding toward him, allowing my purse to drop to the floor with a satisfying clunk. I pressed my lips to his, kissing him firmly. Unusually, he hesitated. It was momentary, but nevertheless there and definitely out of the ordinary. I knew it wasn’t my imagination. Something was off. When he did start to kiss me, it wasn’t with his normal hunger.

I pulled back, eyeing him cautiously.

“Is something wrong, babe?”

He said nothing, just returned my stare. This was interesting. Kind of like a game of visual chicken. I had seen Arlo and Luke faceoff like this many times, but the two of us never had. Who would look away or say something first? I for one had all the time in the world to watch and wait—a small privilege of the newly unemployed.

While we stood locked in our Mexican standoff, I took the time to drink in Arlo’s appearance. He was sublime. So hard-edged and wild and masculine and… broken. And so wholeheartedly different from his twin brother. After all these years, I still marveled at how two people who were on the face of it identical could be so fundamentally dissimilar as soon as you scratched the surface and moved beyond the physical.

It was Arlo who eventually broke the stalemate, walking further into the house. As he headed down the hall in front of me, I could’ve sworn he’d even had a spring in his step, but I shook the thought from my mind. That kind of glee just wasn’t his MO. Mean and moody was far more his shtick than positive and perky.

I followed, deciding not to pay too much attention to the change in his demeanor. Instead, I stripped off my clothes as we went. I wasn’t there on a social visit; I wanted to get straight down to business, as per usual. Pretty much the only time I felt like a whole person was when Arlo and I were fucking. It was sad but true. The post-coital high was even better, and I had just wanted him inside me as quickly as possible, so I could feel good again. Much to my surprise, instead of heading toward the bedroom as normal, he moved in the opposite direction through the house. Huh?

I stopped in my tracks, perplexed about the bizarre situation unfolding before me.

MV ELLIS knows what it’s like to fall head over heels in love with a badass musician. She followed her heart halfway around the world to be with one. She moved from London to Sydney after a steamy holiday romance with a sexy bass player in sultry Brazil.

Twelve years, two children and a dog later, and she’s still smitten. All this with a guy she sat next to on a bus for 36 hours! She has toured internationally as a “WAG,” and her experiences inspire her writing.
Ellis’s love of romance began when she was 11 years old, after a summer spent secretly reading her auntie’s books. She’s been a sucker for an alpha hero and strong heroine ever since.

An avid reader, Ellis always knew she’d write a book of her own one day. She was right about that. Following a career spanning advertising, marketing, and social media, she finally wrote Catching London in 2017.
