Series: Tainted Knights #1
Release Date: March 7, 2017
With one kiss she was his.
All it took was one look, one kiss.
The promises he made—I should have known better. He was a rock star and I had no time for a guy like him in my life.
I fell anyway.
I believed his promises. Held onto them and waited.
But the thing about rockers is that their private lives are never truly private. Seeing his face on the cover of every national tabloid from California to New York—with a new girl every single time—was the reality check I needed.
Now the memory of that first magical kiss was TAINTED.

“Uh-oh,” Kassa’s sweet voice murmured as she joined us. “Is Kale coming down with something?”
I pushed Kin’s hand away. “I’m fine.”
“The last time you were this quiet, you had strep throat and couldn’t talk for three days,” Kassa reminded me.
“Those three days where the most peaceful days of my life,” Kin teased, then turned serious. “But I don’t like seeing you all moody. That’s what Sin is for, not you.”
“What are you three doing now?” Cash asked, handing me a bottle of water as he joined us.
“Kale is sick,” Kassa told him, taking her turn to feel my forehead. “No fever, but you do have a glazed look in your eyes. Hmm,” she glanced over her shoulder and I knew she was looking at Santana, “maybe you aren’t sick after all.” Turning those bright blue eyes on me once again she stepped closer just as Kin had. “You got it bad for the photog? She’s hot.”
“Agreed,” Cash said half under his breath as he took a swallow from his water bottle.
I tensed when I saw his eyes go toward her. “Don’t you even fucking think about it, dickhead.”
Cash’s head snapped around. “What’d I do?”
“Nothing yet, and you better keep it that way.” I straightened to my full height, which was only an inch taller than Cash, but the look in my eyes had his brows lifting toward the ceiling. “She’s mine.”
“Dude, you haven’t even talked to her. How the hell can she be yours?” Cash shook his head. “You’re seriously losing your mind.”
I took another step toward him, my fists balling at my sides as I fought the urge to knock his ass out. “She’s mine,” I said with a coldness that had rarely left my throat.
