Christine Jalili – “This book completely gutted me but also left me feeling like they had so much love.”
Growing up, I had everything.
A loving big brother, a great family and a happy life.
But then it all changed. Now, my entire world is shattered.
The only thing that still makes sense is how I feel about Evan.
I love him more than anything, but it’s not enough anymore.
I’m tired of chasing after him. Tired of being held at arm’s length.
I can’t live like this any longer.
Walking away will destroy me.
Yet what other choice do I have?
Growing up, my best friend’s sister was always around.
I took care of her, I protected her. She was my friend too.
Then one night she became more. So much more.
But then all hell broke loose.
I screwed up. I became the reason for her pain.
My mistake ruined everything.
Afraid of destroying what we have left, I keep her at arm’s length.
Fed up with my distance, she’s ready to end it all.
That can’t happen.
It’s time to face facts… Hope is mine.
Amazing writing, a heart-filled story and characters that weaves their way into your heart and take root! This book requires an entire box of tissues, copious bottles of wine and a quiet place. Trust me. You will want all of that.
Guilt, love, regret and family are the major themes in the book. Hope, Evan and Ryker gutted me and their story shattered my emotions, but I would read this book again and again!
J.E. Parker is an American romance author who was born and raised in the great state of North Carolina. A southern belle at heart, she’s addicted to sweet tea, Cheerwine, and peach cobbler.
Not only is J.E. married to the man of her dreams (albeit a total pain in the rear), she’s also the mother of a herd of sweet (sometimes), and angelic (only when they’re sleeping) children. Despite their occasional demonic behavior and bottomless stomachs, J.E. loves her little tribe more than words could ever express.
On the weekends, you can find her sitting on the couch, cheering on (or cursing) her favorite football team, stuffing her face with junk food, and guzzling a bottle of cheap red wine.
When she’s not busy making sure her husband doesn’t burn the house down or acting as a referee for her fighting children, J.E. enjoys reading, writing (obviously), and listening to a wide variety of music.
