The beast breaks out within hours of him returning to his hometown, but it settles when it sees Makenna, Ashton’s high school sweetheart. Ashton doesn’t know what she’s still doing in town. She should be singing on a stage somewhere. But it’s good she’s around. In her presence, Ashton and his beast come to a unified, sane purpose.
The trouble is, Makenna doesn’t seem to want Ashton around. She can’t forget that Ashton left her, and besides, she’s busy trying to pay off the debt left after a family member’s illness. She doesn’t have time for an out-of-control Drake, even if she could ever trust him again.
Ashton knows what he needs to keep his sanity, his community, and his king.
But Ashton doesn’t know if he can win Makenna back.
