About the Books
I came back to Radley Springs to attend college. Nothing else. I sure as hell didn’t come back for him. Not even a little bit. Dario Boston means nothing to me. Nothing! He’s a dangerous man. A drug dealer. A criminal. Full of dark secrets and lies. Sometimes I wonder if he’s even killed because of what he does for a living. He never let me see that side of him, but I know who he is. I know what he does and who he works for. But even after knowing all that, I still fell for him. I gave him my heart, and he claimed every part of me, including my innocence. My life changed last year because of him. Not in a good way. But that’s all in the past. He was a mistake, one of many I don’t want to think about. Starting college is a fresh start. A new beginning. It’s time to come out of my shell and be the person I want to be and stop living in my best friend’s shadow. This year is going to be everything I’ve been looking forward to. I’m finally free of my mother and her strict rules. I can finally breathe a little. Live a little. Laugh a little. And try to forget about the past and all the heartache and pain I suffered through last year. As long as I don’t run into Dario, I’ll be fine. Maybe he’s forgotten all about me by now. It’s been over a year. He probably doesn’t even remember my name…but I still remember his, and every little kiss we shared, and more. But he can never find out the truth about what happened last year. He’d never forgive me. I don’t even forgive myself. I don’t think I ever will. xoxo Paige returns to her hometown to start her first year of college. She’s convinced herself the reason for coming back is so that she can be with her best friend, Em, and have a little fun. It has nothing to do with Dario Boston. Nothing. The boy she left behind, the one she’s running from. They have a history together, one she wants to forget, so she plans to avoid him for as long as possible. Dario reminds her of everything that happened last year, and it’s not something she wants to remember. He’s also a dangerous man, and his lifestyle isn’t something she wants to get caught up in, but things don’t quite go to plan. Paige is so busy trying to run from him, she runs straight into Maverick Wilder, and he might be just what she needs to forget about Dario. **17+ contains sexual situations, flashbacks, drinking, cheating, love triangle, drugs, language, adult situations, and a cliffhanger!** The Paige Diaries is a 5 book spin-off series, but it can be read on its own. If you have read The Blue Raspberry Series, you might recognize a few scenes as both series overlap over the years.
