  About The Fight For Forever

  You can only keep what you can protect.

  That’s all I’ve ever known. It’s the way I’ve lived my life.

  Now, everything I never knew I needed is at risk, and I’m not letting anyone take it from me.

  I won’t let anyone take her from me.

  They say love is a battlefield, so I’m ready for war.

  This time, it’s the fight for forever.

  The Fight for Forever is the third and final book of the Legend Trilogy and should be enjoyed following The Fall of Legend and House of Scarlett. In addition to The Fight for Forever, I’ve also included a sneak peek of Creole Kingpin, my next Anti-Heroes Collection story, which is set in our beloved New Orleans and the world of the Beneath Series and the Mount Trilogy. Creole Kingpin is now available for preorder by tapping on the title.

  Fifteen years earlier

  I read a sign once that said you were only one decision away from a completely different life.

  That hit me hard.

  So I made a fucking decision, and now we’d all have a completely different life. Me, Jorie, and Bump. Nothing would ever be the same after today.

  As I walked past the barber shop, the duffel bag of cash hanging heavy in my grip, the TV inside blared about the storm closing in. In Biloxi, we didn’t get too excited about that shit. I didn’t give a fuck that people were saying this one was going to be a big one. If it was up to me, we’d be out of this town before it made landfall. That was, if it even really came our way at all.

  Rain beat against my hat, dripping off to slide down the collar of my T-shirt. The T-shirt I’d never wear again, because I’d be dressing in better shit from now on. The cash in the bag was going to make certain of that.

  I’d finally be able to get Jorie to LA, so she could cut a single in a real studio and get it to the bigwigs at the record companies. I’d conquer the city and build a club where she could perform while she soared on the charts. That was our plan. That had always been our plan.

  She’d been quiet lately, and I knew it was because of how fucking tight money was. It was weighing on her. I’d seen the desperation in her eyes, and that’s why I did what I did.

  I was done robbing Peter to pay Paul.

  No, a voice in my head piped up. You just robbed Moses to get the fuck out of town and save Jorie before she does something stupid.
