That’s what Cole tells himself when he installs a camera in her bedroom. That’s what he tells himself when he finds out she’d cheated on her SATs and he decides to blackmail her to move out of her new mansion. That’s what he tells himself when he watches as she touches herself, and moans out his name.
But it’s more than just protecting her. So much more.
