I pushed myself up against the wall. H-o-l-y shit. They’re old mobsters. Not a gang, you idiot. He was saying that, right? I wasn’t just imagining it. “The Mob?” It came out whispered.
Oh, dear god. Speak for him? What the hell did that mean, speak for him? I spoke to him. And not that I wanted to date other people, but I didn’t want to be a mobster. Would that make me a mobster? That was actually laughable. Me, a mobster. All I wanted was for him to ask me to go steady. He wanted to marry me. A commitment forever? That sounded like a fricking marriage. Lord, my head was killing me.
Not sure why I thought putting my hand on my forehead would make me feel better, because it didn’t. Why couldn’t he be a normal guy and ask me to take his promise ring? Why the Mob?
Zach lowered his chin, but raised his eyebrows—waiting.
If he was an old mobster’s grandson, then why in god’s name was I so comfortable with him? That would make anyone in their right mind afraid of him. All right, what was the one thing I knew about mobster families? Once you were in, you didn’t walk back out.
I was “spoken for” by a Mob grandson, which was either terrifying or kind of cool – I wasn’t sure which one yet.
When the realities of life shatter her fragile innocence, Tatum Duncan’s courage and resilience are tested. She’s determined to be in control of her future. But the love of her life, Zach Bertano, and his mob family may have other plans.
Will she “speak for” Zach, like he has “spoken for” her? Or will Tatum walk away?
