The risk of running into Ethan was too high here. It would kill her to live through the heartbreak of his words over and over. Her worst fear was that the mate attraction was a pull neither of them could resist. She deserved to be wanted for who she was, not forced into a future that would be miserable for both of them.

I personally enjoyed it more than the first entry. I have to give him props though, for going above and beyond in trying to make things right between them.
