Josh and Emmy (McKinley's Obsession Duet)

This is a short story prequel to the Mckinley Ranch Duet, find out how Josh and Emmy met in high school.

Ten new schools.
Ten new groups of friends I had to fit in with.
This move is different. This are not the usual kids I’ve had to befriend before.
These are the elite offspring of the rich and famous.
One look at me and they’ll know, I’m an imposter.

The new girl sealed her fate the moment she thought she could sit at my table.
I warned her to stay away from me.
She should have listened.

Josh McKinley has a certain reputation around school. Coming from one of the richest families, he is hot whilst airing on the side of unhinged. People annoy and frustrate him, with anger never far from bubbling to the surface. Sitting in the lunch hall he is surprised by a beautiful blonde who has taken it upon herself to join him. The new girl chatted about how they would be friends, Tim to her Tam etc. Josh pours a chocolate milkshake over her head and walks away.

Being a scholarship brat in a rich school has Emily Livingstone on the backfoot compared to her peers. Losing her military father she is simply trying to get through school unscathed. Spotting a boy on his own in the canteen she recognised his energy and was drawn to him. Although her first interaction doesn’t go well, it does, however,  gain her a host of almost instant friends.

Over the next three years, Josh keeps his distance from her, however, still manages to make Emmy’s life difficult. Red hair dye was placed in her shampoo, getting her kicked off the cheerleading team and stashed tyres to name but a few. Throughout all of this, she attempts to hate him but feels drawn to him and strangely protective whenever others call him crazy. Their worlds collide at graduation but Josh knows that he isn’t able to keep her.

Ruining Her (A Dark Second Chance Romance): McKinley's Obsession Duet Book 1

I never thought I would be seeking shelter here of all places.
I’m out of options though. I needed a place to hide out.
Somewhere I could get my bearings and develop a plan to get myself out of the mess I’ve landed in.
It was a fail-proof plan. Then he found me.
I’ve escaped one monster, only to be captured by another.
He’s determined to break me, to uncover the secrets I’m hiding. But this is one secret I can’t let him discover.
Can I escape him before he ruins everything? Before he ruins me?

She was meant to stay away.
Emily, the only person in the world who’s made me feel like I actually have a heart.
She made me hope that my soul wasn’t as black as people say.
Hope’s a dangerous bitch though, one I killed before those embers ever had a chance to flame.
Now she’s back. And she’s keeping secrets, ones I plan to uncover using any means necessary.
I warned her that if I ever laid eyes on her again, I’d keep her.
In keeping her, I know I’m going to do the one thing I never wanted to do.

Seven years after graduation Emily never thought that this would be her reality. The one where she is frightened over her own shadow and second-guessing everything she does or says. Hearing the keys in the lock she knows that Trent is home and does one final check of the house, burning the dinner in the process. Setting Trent off on one of his rages she is subjected to his physical abuse and raping – finally making something snap in her. She stabs him and manages to leave. Hitchhiking her way across Australia to the cabin she shared once with Josh.

Receiving a call from Emmy has Josh’s head spinning, surprised that she has finally reached out after all this time but she also has news of missing Ella. Reunited together he cannot believe that the girl in front of him is the same one from high school. A broken shell of a girl who he is not going to let go a second time now that he has her back. His possessiveness is taken to new levels as he needs to know exactly what has happened to her and never let it happen again.

As they begin to reconnect Emily is attempting to undo years of abuse trauma by reacting to Josh’s touch and worrying about things she says. Josh works behind the scenes to find out about her past but is surprised by the things he uncovers. Each of them is protective of the other in their own way, Emmy planning her escape to save dragging Josh into her troubles but Josh is not willing to let her go. Will news of what made her return have them torn apart?

Ruining Him (A Dark Second Chance Romance): McKinley's Obsession Duet Book 2

Emily came crashing back into my life, bringing with her everything I was missing.
But she’s not the same girl I knew years ago. Gone is the girl who was always happy and eager to please everyone. The one who didn’t let life get her down.
She’s conquered her demons but they still haunt her whenever she closes her eyes. Her screams tear through the darkness night after night.
She thinks she needs to get away, to keep running. To leave me behind.
But I won’t lose her again; I will slay anything, anyone, who thinks they can get in the way of my keeping her.

I wasn’t meant to let myself get attached to Josh again. I wasn’t meant to stay this long.
Now he knows my biggest secret; he knows I’m not the sweet girl he thinks I am.
I’m being chased, hunted down like prey.
But I won’t let my past mistakes hurt Josh.
I need to leave before he finds me.
Leaving Josh behind is not going to be as easy as I thought it would be, but it’s my only option. I’ll do whatever it is I have to do to protect him, even if that means I have to Ruin Him.
