In the eyes of a young girl with a crush, the perfect man exists.
After the events of the last year, she isn’t young or naive anymore. A brutal attack has left nothing but extreme darkness inside her that not even the people who love her the most can mend. A bus ride and a chance encounter have her shadowed path crossing with someone who nurtures the wildness within her as evil ravages her soul and a journey of self-medicating begins. Sometimes, you have to rip apart and tear away at layers of heartbreak and anguish to find a semblance of peace within the future.
Falling into a headspace so dark that there is no coming back.
Sinking into choices so self-destructive that her body, heart, and soul might never heal.
Spiraling down until she becomes her own worst enemy, inflicting further pain.
Pure evil takes away everything that makes her who she is. Cold touches from the hands of strangers and comfort in the form of injecting numbness straight into her veins can’t help her escape. Forget teetering on the edge of the wreckage.
She’s welcoming, inviting, seeking.
Nothing is ever perfect, and the same can be said here.

I knew it was the end. I warned you.
Nobody believed me.
With danger lurking around every corner
And his enemies still watching,
It was bound to come crashing down.
My past came back with a vengeance
To haunt me.
To hurt me.
To end us.
But he wouldn’t let it.
It wasn’t up to him, though.
It was up to me.
I’m Aurora James and this is our ending.
His job is to lie to everyone he meets…she may be the one his truth could save.
Fletcher Denali’s entire life is based on a lie. Namely, that his name is not Fletcher Denali.
Hidden in plain sight, Fletcher must live his life with the weight of his secret past on his shoulders.
When he meets Vaida, the quiet girl with dark eyes, he can’t help but be intrigued.
But Vaida has secrets too.
Secrets that could destroy all that Fletcher has worked to protect himself from.
Vaida Williams has to remain unnoticed.
The wrong person seeing her could cost her her life.
So, when Fletcher, the handsome man who won’t seem to take no for an answer, develops a sudden interest in her, Vaida begins to fear she may have to run…again.
Fletcher has questions Vaida can’t answer.
But, if Vaida opens up…Fletcher may be the one person who could help her. The only problem? Trust is something she buried long ago. And she has no intention of allowing it to resurface.
Because of Audrey Hepburn, I have foolishly…
a) bought into the whole “Paris is always a good idea” thing without any offscreen evidence,
b) uprooted my son and left my bittersweet memories behind,
c) allowed Thomas—the handsome, caring, way-out-of-my-league vet—to disrupt the dull, desensitized life I had self-prescribed for my Broken Heart Syndrome.
Behind his easy smile and swoon-worthy pecs, Thomas conceals an open wound. No matter how hot his kisses or how genuine his affection, he’s still reeling. He can’t move on.
And I can’t risk falling for him. I have a child to raise—a preteen boy who needs his mom to be all there.
But as autumn strips the trees of their leaves, falling for Thomas is exactly what I do. Throwing caution to the wind, I dare to hope for a future with him…
…until the past comes knocking.
Can we handle it or will it break us forever?
