They meet up again at the ten year high school reunion. In their ten years apart Alexa has been married and lost her husband. This story of getting a second chance at love with your best friend was sweet, (hot at times) and wonderful.

But how do you put it all on the line when you've already lost
everything once before?
*While this is a series, each book will be
standalone with spinoff characters.
I look around the bar and
immediately spot him. Holy shit, he’s even more gorgeous than before, I think
as my eyes roam over him. My heart races like I’ve just run miles to get here,
and my eyes cannot move from his. He looks just like Jace, but not the one I
remember. He’s older, and rugged, not quite like the high school senior I
remember. My eyes widen as I take in the bicep I’m pretty sure I couldn’t wrap
my hand around. Hello muscles, I think as I try to force away the image of him
hauling me up into his big arms and having his way with me.
I shake the thoughts away as I sweep
my eyes over the rest of him. He’s wearing a plain black t-shirt that showcases
the definition in his arms, and I can’t look away. I swear he flexes a little
when he sees me looking as I witness a thick vein stretching across his
forearm. I can see the beginnings of a tattoo peeking out from under his right
sleeve, and I’m dying for further inspection. His dark hair is buzzed short in
a standard military-style cut and his jaw is more squared than I remember. His full lips attract my attention as he
wraps them around the beer bottle he’s taking a drink from, and I involuntarily
shudder at the memory of where those lips have touched me.
His blue eyes penetrate mine as he’s
watching me, but his face is blank, so I have no idea if he even recognizes me.
Bullshit, he knows exactly who you are. His eyebrows are drawn together, and I
watch him take a deep breath as he plays with his beer bottle. Ryan sets me on
the ground, and I take this chance to look down and turn away from him. I
barely register what Ryan and Jeremy are talking about when Sierra grabs my
hand and drags me to the bar.
About the Author
I'm a twenty six year old
book junkie who is also obsessed with sports. Bengals, Buckeyes, Reds are my
teams! I work for the government during the day, hang out with Air National
Guard on the weekends, and am married to a guy 15 inches taller than me. We're
quite the pair! We currently live right outside of Dayton, OH with our two
I've been reading since I
was a kid. My mom was a librarian, so it was a given. Heck, she even made sure
we watched Wishbone instead of the Smurfs. In 2011 when I graduated from
college, my mom bought me a Nook, and then in the summer of 2012 I found this
amazing site called Goodreads. I was introduced to so many amazing
indie/self-published authors. After reading almost 400 books that year, my
husband gave me the push to finally sit down and write my own. It was a rocky
start, but over time the words started flowing and I couldn't get Jace and Lexi
out of my head.
If I’m not writing or looking
through tons of photos of hot men, all in the name of research, then you can
probably find me curled up with my Kindle, ignoring the rest of the world. I
love my sports almost as much as I love my books. My other obsessions include
red wine, hot men, country music, and all things Grace Potter.
