No one man could do that and do it so well. Well…
The walking embodiment of pure unadulterated sex. The only man to make her abandon every bit of her morals. The only person to singlehandedly challenge the life she settled for. He was a risk she craved, but she was used to safety.
Torn between her heart and hurting another, what will Marley choose? Better yet, who will she choose?
