Envy - Book two of “The Wicked Sins” series. “Why are you even doing this when it won’t matter at the end of the day? He doesn’t love you anymore, accept it.” His words rang with the harsh truth, yet the fact that Desmond left me to eat the dust was just too horrifying and it makes me want to skin him alive, burning him along with the promises he ever made. Promises that are merely promises and they will always be words, never actions. “I can’t.” I bluntly spat, facing him and looking into his sea green eyes that were pleading me to stop. But I couldn’t. “I don’t want to. It doesn’t matter if he doesn’t love me anymore.” “Then why are you doing this?” “I don’t know... I just want to see him choke on his promises and realize how I’m better than his pathetic wife.” Alex Bay was never interested in cheating nor being involved with another person while in a relationship.
