One night changed everything between them.
When Gemma drunkenly admitted her feelings to Ben, she never imagined they’d have a future together -- let alone, that he’d feel the same way for her. And yet, fate put obstacles in their path…
Overcoming family trauma was hard enough but with a brand new relationship? It was even more delicate. And they’ve come out the other side stronger…
Now a new obstacle rears its head as Molly, Ben’s sister, faces her past and must rely on them. With all the family drama going on, they must determine where their future is headed...
But will they have the strength to take the next step?
If it wasn’t for Ben, and the comfort of his arms, I was sure I would have driven away as soon as I’d pulled up. He understood how to respond when it came to my anxieties, how to help talk me out of my own head. The moment I found him, I knew my scattered thoughts would settle enough so I could enjoy the night—so long as I stayed far away from the alcohol.While the liquid courage had worked wonders for me the last time, I wasn’t willing to chance it again. There was a difference between spilling your guts to the guy you loved, and trying to get into your now-boyfriend’s pants while out in public. Thanks, but no thanks, alcohol.My phone vibrated within my grasp and I glanced down to see Ben’s name flashing upon the screen.B: Everything okay?Was it? Maybe. I mean, everything around me was more than fine. Things had settled down. My mom was slowly, but surely, getting better, and Wanda had become a part of our lives yet again. Things were good. Me, on the other hand? That was still questionable. The joys of coping with anxiety.
An update on the giveaway: Believe it or not, I have been going through entries -- it has just taken a lot longer due to health issues. Because a lot of entries didn't properly follow instructions, I wanted to be sure I was picking winners that actually *did* follow the instructions. So I'll be contacting winners over the weekend. Keep an eye on your e-mails!
