I’m the genius behind the keyboard, the man at my brothers’
backs when trouble comes calling. Killing might not have been my nature, but I
learned to do what I had to, to survive. To keep them alive.
Now, with everything going right, with my family finally happy, a new threat
has risen. A shadow. A menace that could take it all away in a single breath.
And not just from my family. From hers.
One glance and I knew I’d walk through fire to make her see me, make her mine.
Too bad she’s not willing to see inside of me.
In a world where might makes right, we’re on different sides of the spectrum,
but in this game of cat-and-mouse, it will take both of us to make it out
The silence between us built as I waited for him to speak, and a warm
flush crept up my neck and onto my cheeks. Finally I risked a sideways glance.
Eli was staring—at me.
“What?” I gathered my bowl and plate, silverware, but couldn’t step away
without looking at him again. “Eli?”
He shook his head. “I was just…” Another shrug showcased the thick

About you. And now…”
Every cell in my body screamed at me to run, hide, get away—and yet…
“Now I know about you—a little of what you’ve been through, what you do,
how you love your team.”
“They’re my family.” The amber glow of his gaze had me dropping mine.
Why was I looking at the floor? I wasn’t shy. I didn’t lack strength or
confidence—maybe had a little too much sometimes, actually. And yet that look…
God. It was his intensity, the way his gaze crawled inside me and uncovered
things I didn’t want to think about, didn’t want to feel. Especially right now.
I couldn’t bear it; Eli Agozi was too much. Too big a threat—to me,
personally, my emotions, my thoughts. He pulled me down paths I couldn’t afford
to follow. Mere hours in his presence and I knew.
He was the biggest risk I couldn’t afford to take.
“I don’t think it’s only that they became your family, though it’s partly
that. It’s also just who you are, Beautiful.” Eli leaned close until his nose
barely brushed mine. Too close. “You fascinate me, Mikaela. I’m not sure why,
and I’m definitely not certain where it will end, but I do know one thing: it’s
gonna be a hell of a ride.” He nudged my nose, one side of his mouth tugging
up. “I can’t wait.”
