He took me from my safe little house and now I’m his.

Cason Varens, the terrifying and brutally beautiful enforcer for the Varens crime family, plucked me from my life to punish my father.

I may be young, but I know how this works. Men like Cason take no prisoners.

Unless you make them want something more than blood and death.

He says for the next seven days, I’m his. His to have. His to take. Payment for giving up a week of his life for the job.

But what he doesn’t know is I’ve got a plan, and I’ll do whatever I have to so I’m alive at the end of that week.

To him, it’s just seven days. To me, it might be the rest of my life.
