Telling your best friend that you’ve always been secretly in love with her should be easy right? That’s what Marshall Lockhart thought the night his best friend Caydence Williams planted a big one on him.
Marshall Lockhart may not have it all, but there’s one thing he can’t live without.
Caydence Williams, his beautiful best friend and the girl he is madly in love with.
Today he’s gonna muster up the courage to tell her that. That was until the unthinkable happened.
Being murdered could really put a pin in your plans.
Caydence is devastated after losing the piece of her heart that fit perfectly. Finding Marshall alive in a place she’d least expect turns her life upside down, especially since she’d watched him and he had definitely been dead and buried. Without questioning the obvious–rescuing him from the unknown, she gets mixed up in a tailspin of trouble. Waking from the unknown, and coming to his senses, Marshall feels hollow, furious & hungry…very hungry. Fighting to stay in control of the unfamiliar beast inside of him, he finds his own dilemma. Little does Caydence know, the boy she once knew was buried deep inside & the monster inside of him was way too far on the surface—clawing its way out. But the bond and flourishing love of the two together may prove to be stronger than the obstacles thrown their way.
"Your father is into some weird stuff." Marshall replied to his best friend since forever as he picked up a bottle full of a black substance.
Stumbling into it by accident, he and his best friend Caydence were in one of her father's secret labs.
"I know.... my dad will kill us if he finds us down here." Caydence replied looking around.
Knowing her father all too well, Marshall understood that her dad already hated the idea of her and him being in anyway associated with one another. If he'd caught them in a room that he forbade her to ever enter, he would definitely blow a gasket. The room was dark and full of what they presumed to be antidotes and potions. They'd been caught in there once as children, when they were playing but never again. Today, they'd just been bored and shut in, since it was raining outside furiously.
"You mean he'd kill me and ground you forever." Marshall said still holding the vile.
"Put that down!!" they heard her father's voice yell from the top of the stairs.
