"A good friend knows all your stories.
A best friend has lived them with you."
Rich. Popular. Athletic.
The poster boy for everything I hated.
Tell me why, after one conversation, could I not stop daydreaming about him?
My tattoos, black eyeliner, and general bitch-persona did a fine job of keeping people away before.
So, how the hell did the Charmer from Down Under burrow a hole right into the center of my heart?
It’s tragic that he left when things got real.
Six years slipped away like sand through an hourglass, without one word from him.
Now, Lachlan Williams is back. Standing on my doorstep, like the ghost of Christmas Past.
He has explanations and apologies. However, he also has riddles and betrayal.
He can keep his secrets. Mine is better anyway.
Rebellious. Dangerous. Gorgeous.
She’s one storm I didn’t see coming. There were no warnings of gloomy skies or still air.
We crashed together so intensely part of her was woven into my soul.
I loved her with a fierceness I never knew I possessed.
And, Sawyer Mathews loved me back.
The universe has a funny way of messing with you, though. Just when you think you get the girl…chaos breaks free.
It wreaks havoc.
It shatters worlds.
Not all love stories end with a happily-ever-after, but if our promises are strong enough, can we rewrite our ending?
He was my best friends’ older brother.
Sexy as sin and highly off-limits. Forbidden fruit.
That minor detail never stopped us from falling in love, though.
Trust me when I say that when we leaped, we soared and never touched the ground again.
Until the night of our wedding.
Hours after we spoke our vows, everything unraveled quicker than it was stitched together.
How can you repair something when you don’t have all the pieces anymore?
At what point do you stop fighting and just…let go?
Sloane Mathews. Formerly Sloane Reid.
I fell for my sisters’ best friend. Then I made her mine.
She was my rainbow after thousands of storms.
We had our entire lives ahead of us and the future was brighter than the goddamn sun.
The unfortunate aspect of rainbows is that they don’t stay forever.
Sloane deserves more than what I can provide. I’m no longer the man she agreed to marry.
If you love something, you’re supposed to set it free, right?
The thing is, she’d never walk away on her own.
Even if it rips the last ragged breath from my chest, I’ll make sure she gets her happily-ever-after.
I’m lost inside myself.
Not the normal amount expected from seniors in high school, but utterly and mentally broken.
One year ago, I had a perfect life; a gorgeous boyfriend who loved me. A best friend who sucked me into crazy adventures. A loving family who welcomed me home every night.
When the unthinkable happened, perfection only ran skin-deep.
Everyone began to gradually slip from my grasp, and I was too numb to stop them.
Everything began to blur around the edges, and I was too exhausted to focus my vision.
Then, Grayson Hayes shook me from my inner turmoil.
It wasn’t supposed to be him, though.
Not the guitar playing, truck driving, tattooed bad-boy who was my childhood best friend.
He seems to be the only one who can breathe life into me again.
Grayson found me, but that doesn’t mean he gets to keep me.
