Vincent Greene is the client from hell.
The man who wants to make sure that dream ends up BROKEN.
Just when Aaron thinks his life is beginning to make sense, his handler sends him to a new client. Vincent Greene looks like he might just be Aaron’s best client yet, but what Aaron doesn’t know, is that under Vincent’s alluring facade, lurks a heart capable of extreme cruelty.
(Complete version with all three books in the BROKEN series.)
EXCERPT: Aaron hadn’t realized how many people there were in the world. The streets were obviously full of them and so were the buses. Every step he took, he was afraid he was going to get lost. Even with all the exposure therapy, and an entire week of trying, he wasn’t ready to do this. But he had a purpose. And that purpose gave him the kind of strength he didn’t think he had. The next street finally looked familiar enough. One of his friends from his past life had taken him here once. He had never been in need of drugs, and so had no reason to search for it, but his friend and needed something and brought him here. This was the last place he was supposed to be, and yet here he was, looking for some dealer and acting like he had everything in control, when he could feel the tension in his neck from all the strain his head was putting onto his body, and he could hear the slightly out of rhythm beating of his heart. When he found the face he had been searching for, he walked up to him, hoping his strides were confident enough. Any nervousness and the dealer would suspect foul play and Aaron wouldn’t be able to get what he came here for. It was the kind of waste he couldn’t afford.
“Hi,” he said, trying his best to act normal. “Are you, Thomas?”
The man was in his forties, and looked like he finished half of his own stuff. But when he smiled, he did it with a calmn Aaron wished he felt. “Who’s asking?”
“I’m Aaron,” he said, remembering the ‘code.’ “I was told you can get me something I need.”
Aaron tried to keep up the charade of confidence, hoping Thomas wouldn’t notice the sweat under his collar. “Please,” he said. “I really need your help. I have money. I can pay double if you want.”
The greed was apparent on Thomas’ face. “I might be able to help you,” he said. “My place is just around the corner. If you come with me, I can get you what you need.”
Shit. “I don’t think I have time for that,” Aaron tried to come up with an excuse.
“Are you a first timer?”
And now Thomas was getting the wrong ideas. Aaron knew that kind of behavior screamed undercover operation. “I’m not a first timer,” he said. “Just someone in a bit of a hurry.”
“I don’t care if you’re late to meet the damn President,” Thomas said. “You know the deal. If you need the stuff, you do the first shot with me. It’s in the best interests of all parties involved.”
When Aaron hesitated, Thomas glared at him. “Well?” he said. “Are you coming or not?”
Aaron hadn’t come this far to go back home without getting what he needed. He had gone through all the effort of trying to get here, of giving up his newfound phobias and made it all the way across town to get here on his own. He wasn’t about to leave empty handed. Who knew when he’d be able to muster the courage for something like this again? He checked to see if anyone was looking, then he turned to Thomas. “Let’s go.”
