They say forbidden fruit is the sweetest.
Those people have obviously never tasted her kiss…
When I was eight years old, I met my soul mate.
Charlotte Kasen.Little sister to my best friend and the only girl I ever loved.
Her family saved me from Hell on Earth when I was eleven.
How did I repay her? I took her first kiss, then pushed her away for more than a decade.
I made a vow to my best friend to keep my distance, a vow I’ve kept sacred—until now. But will she even give me a second chance when she thinks I never wanted one in the first place?
I don’t know what I have to do to prove I’m the right man for the job, but she needs to understand one thing: Charlotte was mine from the moment I first laid eyes on her and she’ll be mine to have.
I quit keeping track of all the tears I shed over Deacon Devereaux years ago, but my heart can’t seem to give him up.
I’ve lived my life by the rules of others and have always denied what I wanted most: a handsome 6’4” package, all wrapped in muscle and regret.
He thinks I can’t see all the secrets he keeps hidden.
He believes we’re not meant to be together.
He couldn’t be more wrong…
I see every beautifully broken piece of him and I want them all—but at what cost?
Now he’s back, saying things are different this time. Our past proves he’s a runner, but should I ignore everything I know to be true now that he’s running towards me?
RELEASE DATE: December 23, 2019
NEW to me author and books! First of I want to say that this author is the sweetest human being alive!! That said me going into this was like having a blindfold while you’re reading! So, I knew a little about it from talking with the author but I was pleasantly surprised that I FELL IN LOVE WITH THIS! The characters, the words…everything fit and went so well together. It is a little bit of a tear jerker but believe me when you get to the end, you will be happy!
The hero and heroine in this both have had a rough life from the beginning, loss, pain and struggle but when you put them together, something beautiful happens and not just the healing one another but just on another level of beautiful together. They were meant to be and are the perfect characters together. Deacon is the broken but grown into a big, strong man and Elsie is the beautiful most caring human being! Them together like I keep saying JUST EVERYTHING you’d wish for. The hurdles they over come together, the past, the present and looking forward to the future…it’s a ride for sure and I am so glad I have had the chance to read this! A very perfect debut novel for this author.
