Featured in Barnes and Noble’s Closet Romantics column by Eloisa James….
For as long as he could remember, he wanted herâ€¦
Raised by a single mother, Adam Collins resolved to take no chances with a girlâ€™s futureâ€”or his own. Thatâ€™s why, as hard as it was, he resisted everything he felt for Marissa Brooks. Then one night a reckless challenge left a fellow student dead and changed both their lives forever. As penance, Adam took the boyâ€™s place in the Marines, where he could disappear into discipline and duty, and left Marissa behind to struggle with her dreams.
Twelve years later, Adam is back in Walkers Ford to serve as the best man in his friendâ€™s wedding. The years havenâ€™t diminished the electric connection he has with Marissa. But Adamâ€™s mistake continues to haunt him, and Marissa is stumbling under the weight of her familyâ€™s legacy. Together they wrestle with demons and dreams, but if thereâ€™s any hope for a future together Adam has to not only find a way to forgive himself, but also ask others for forgivenessâ€”especially from the woman whose heart he broke.
This will be my first entry into the contemporary romance genre. If youâ€™ve ever read one of my books and thought, â€œBoy, I wish these two would stop having so much hot sex and do stuff together, like deal with terrible mistakes and broken dreams and find their way to an emotionally satisfying new life togetherâ€ this is the book for you!
