I hadn’t seen Jordan in over four years and there he was, standing there with a hand on one of the boxes and his blue eyes wide open like he’d just seen a ghost.
“Abbey Dillinger?” he asked, it wasn’t so much of a question as it was a breathless statement.
I hated him for leaving me. He could have gone to art school in Dallas. He could have stayed if he really did love me. I should have hated him. But seeing him, standing in front of me, I couldn’t hate him. The past four years had been very good to him.

Have you been to Frienship, TX yet? If you haven’t, head there now. Magan Vernon has written a fun series of friends to lovers and second chance romances. The One That Got Away is a second chance romance between a former couple, Jordan and Abbey.
