The sequel to Lead Me Not, this dangerously sexy second
installment in the Twisted Love series continues Aubrey and Maxx’s love story,
from New York Times bestselling author A. Meredith Walters—who “writes the most
beautifully flawed characters that still have you swooning” (Sawyer Bennett,
USA TODAY bestselling author of the Off series).

Aubrey Duncan has loved…and lost. Should she follow a heart
that’s betrayed her or a head that tells her to let go?

Maxx Demelo’s addiction almost destroyed him. It ruined his
life and, most importantly, his relationship with the only girl he ever loved.

He has vowed to become the man Aubrey Duncan deserves. Even
if he has to tear himself apart to do it. So he enters rehab, trying to fix the
parts of him that are shattered as he longs to be healthy and whole.

Aubrey lost everything because she chose to listen to her
heart. Now she has sworn to put herself first, to heal in the only way that she
can…far away from Maxx and his demons.

But just as Aubrey is starting over, Maxx is released from
rehab and thrust back into her world, determined to prove how much they still
need each other. And the chaos that had defined them threatens to unleash once

But a heart, no matter how broken, is impossible to ignore.


Renee walked beside me, her chin tucked into the collar of
her jacket. "It'll get better, Aubrey. I promise. This is your second
chance. Your time for something more."

I hoped she was right. i was desperate for that something

I can be so much more for you. I want to be everything you
could ever want.

It had only been a matter of weeks since Maxx had said those
words, his intense blue eyes staring into mine, and had given me his heart.
Only weeks since he had made promises he hadn't been able to keep. It was such
a short amount of time for my entire life to change.

But it had changed. And now all I could do was accept it and
move on. If only it were that simple.

My eyes were drawn to the brick wall that ran along the edge
of the green. The once vibrant colors of Maxx's street art had faded, but I
could still the painting of a woman walking off a cliff. The word Compulsion
was woven into her familiar blond hair. It was a small part of the complicated
man who continued to own me. The tiny, intricate X's dotted through the picture
seemed to scream at me. Taunting me with their presence.

Even when he was gone, Maxx was everywhere. His art. His
love. His chaos.

I couldn't escape him And I was terrified that in the
darkest recesses of my heart I still didn't want to.

In this dangerously sexy novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Find You in the Dark, a straight-laced college student meets a handsome but enigmatic stranger who lures her into an underground club scene, where she finds it difficult to resist temptation 

Aubrey Duncan understands loss. She knows what rock bottom looks like, and she is determined to crawl back up to the top after the sudden death of her younger sister. She blames herself for her part in the tragedy, convinced that she could have done something, anything, to help her.

In her effort to gain redemption, Aubrey starts fresh at Longwood University and facilitates an addiction support group, hoping she can support someone else in the way she failed her sister. But what she doesn’t count on is an all-consuming fascination with group member Maxx Demelo, a gorgeous, blond, blue-eyed enigma who hides dark secrets behind a carefully constructed mask. He only reveals what he wants others to see. But Aubrey glimpses another Maxx hidden below the surface—a Maxx who is drowning in his own personal hell.

As Aubrey and Maxx develop an attraction too intense to ignore, he pulls her into the dark underbelly of the city club scene, where she is torn by her desire to save him and an inexplicable urge to join him in his downward spiral. Worst of all, she is beginning to love everything she should run away from—a man who threatens to ignite in her a fire that could burn her alive…
