We became mirrors that reflected each other’s most intimate worlds… and desires.

2. Losing It
by Crystal Kaswell
Dear Wes, let’s skip the pleasantries. I’m not going to med school a virgin. I want to learn everything, and I want to learn it from you. I’ve looked at the men in my life, made a list of pros and cons, and found you the most suitable. Sure, a lot of that was your gorgeous blue eyes and your charming smile. The strong arms and the tattoos don’t hurt either. I swear, I don’t have a thing for bad boys. There’s no way I’m ever sending this. I can’t believe I’m even writing it. But I really do want to study under you. Is that too formal? How am I supposed to phrase this? Wes, please, teach me how to love. I promise I’ll study hard. I’m an excellent student. And, well, I’m pretty sure I don’t need to spell out why this is a win/win. – QuinnBuy on Amazon
