The Essence of You

by J.A. Owenby
Publication Date: March 19, 2020
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Sometimes it’s sweeter to surrender.

My life is going in the right direction.
Good friends.
Good school.
Bright future.
Until…
One night.
One look.
One guy.
And just like that my nightmare and everything I tried to forget comes roaring back.
Layne Garrison—stormy grey eyes, bully, the guy who made my life hell in high school is suddenly there, in front of me, in the same town, the same college, and I can’t shake him.
But the darkness never stays neatly tucked away when I learn the reasons that dumped me in foster care.
Will I lose the only man I’ve ever loved, or will my past ruin my future as well?
An enemies-to-lovers standalone with an HEA and no cliffhanger.
