~ Synopsis ~

Fate took Cassandra down a path she never expected. 
 Then a small town in Colorado gave her exactly what she needed—until tragedy left her heartbroken and devastated. 

Alone with only her child and her memories, Cassie struggled to put her life back together, one day at a time, piece by piece. Finding love again was something she never thought possible. That was, until she ran into an unlikely stranger who flipped her entire world on its axis. 
 Aidan had a secret locked away in his heart; one that would surely send Cassie running the second she discovered it. He held onto her closely and kept his secret guarded, but one careless mistake could reveal all. 

Their friendship was strong, their moments beautiful, and the love that brewed between them intense—something neither denied. The only problem? Cassie was slowly letting him into her life. Could she let herself get close to the one person she didn’t think she should? Her mind tells her to run, but her heart tells her to stay.

Chapter 1 – One Year Ago

My hand shot left and landed on the alarm clock, silencing its incessant beeping. There was no point even setting it. I’d been awake for hours, anyway, but inside my nerves were having a hay day. Heartbeats thudded against my chest as I sucked in deep breaths trying to calm myself. 
“Fuck it,” I muttered, kicking my heavy comforter off.
I swung my legs over the edge of the bed and ran a hand through my messy morning hair. My eyes traveled to the phone on my nightstand. I picked it up, sent a quick message to my brother, then tossed it beside me on the bed and made my way to the kitchen in nothing but my boxers. After dumping coffee grinds into the maker and setting the machine to brew, I braced my arms against the white countertop and stared down mindlessly while I waited. Your brain knew when something was important. It wouldn’t let you think of anything else. It was all-consuming. Today, it might just be the death of me. 
I filled my lucky Denver Bronco’s mug and paced my way through the house. Wearing a path in the floor was the only thing slowing my thoughts. I downed a few sips and stopped in front of a tall bookshelf. A covered box containing all my letters from Jase was nestled there.
It had started out as a joke, but neither of us could stop writing. I told him I had a mailbox at college and then every week I had a letter waiting for me. And every week I’d write him back. I saved them all. His latest had me smiling hard. He was happy. Really happy—thanks to her. I needed to meet that girl. My eyes caught a glimpse of the clock; it was nearly time. 
I took a shower and slipped on a pair of worn jeans, a plain tee, and my Nikes. Sucking in a deep breath, I grabbed my keys and left, bracing myself for the day ahead. 
            I was only an hour into my drive when the red engine light caught my eye. It came on every once in a while, so I pushed it to the back of my mind. My foot pressed a little harder on the gas pedal. As the needle on the speedometer crept higher, a new light on the dashboard lit up. And then it happened—my car started to shut down. “Fuck.” I banged my fist at the wheel as the car slowed. But no amount of banging or cursing helped. I veered to the shoulder of the highway, dodging car after car. Finally, the piece of crap stopped dead. 
“No, no, no. Don’t do this to me now.” I pounded the steering wheel again, ready to beat it to death. “Not today. Damn it!” I reached for my phone in the cup holder, dialed the number for Triple A, and within minutes the rep said a tow truck would be on its way. Estimated time of forty-five minutes. Great.
It was too important of a day to be starting out like this. I only prayed things turned around.

“Alright.” He raised his brow as he walked over to the nightstand, writing 

something on the notepad. “Here’s my cell number, call me if you need 

anything. I only live about ten minutes away. Seriously, if you need 

anything, just use the motel phone.”I took the ripped piece of paper he 

handed me. “Thanks.” I knew I needed it so I could talk to him about my 

car, but that’s as far as it would go.“I mean it, anything,” he said as he 

walked to the door, resting his hand against the frame. “Can I get you 

something before I leave? Dinner?”

“No, I’m not hungry at all, but thanks for offering. I think I’m ready to get 

some sleep,” I admitted.

“I’ll keep you posted about your car,” he said.

“Thanks,” I said, thankful that I would get to see him again, but feeling like 

a mixed up basket case for not trusting him. I was a freaking mess.

“Goodnight Cassandra,” he said quietly before closing the door and walking 

Yeah, right. Goodnight in this place was going to be hard to come by. I 

locked the door after he left and walked over to the bed. I drew the covers 

back and found exactly what I’d pictured… Stains. Gross. I pulled the 

covers back over the bed and decided to sleep with a towel over me instead. 

I walked into the filthy bathroom, quickly grabbed a towel, and ran back to 

the room like a scared child. I put on a pair of yoga pants and a t-shirt and 

was ready to get some rest. It had been an unusually long day between the 

long drive, the accident, and the hospital. Too exhausted for continued 

thinking, I let my brain off the hook and laid down on the hard mattress. 

As I pulled the towel over my body, I noticed my feet were going to be 

hanging out all night. Great.

I gently laid my sore head back onto the pillow and blinked my eyes a few 

times. I was right. Sweet dreams were extremely hard to come by in this 

place, but I tried. I closed my eyes and fell asleep.

Based on the way I felt the next morning, I’d gotten only a few hours of 

sleep at the most. Between the noises, the creaks, and the foul smell, I 

didn’t know which was worse. That was, by far, the worst night’s sleep I’ve 

ever had. The morning sun shone brightly through the yellowed curtains, 

and I decided to give up on trying to get any more sleep.

I ripped the towel off of me and was about to put my feet on the floor and 

there it was. Staring back at me as if I were invading his turf was an over 

sized, nasty, grey rat. “OH MY GOD!” I screamed as I jumped up and stood 

on the bed, unsure of what to do if he were to start climbing up. I let out 

another loud scream as it raised itself up with its beady little eyes staring, 

making it scurry off under the bed. This was even worse; now I couldn’t see 

the damn thing.

I jumped off the bed and collected my belongings faster than I even 

realized I could. I threw on a jacket before making a mad dash for the door, 

slamming it behind me. “Holy shit, that was gross,” I said breathlessly. I 

took a moment to compose myself, and to think about what to do next. I 

was not going back into that room. That was for certain.

“Are you looking for a place to stay yet?” I heard his familiar voice from 

afar. I peeked over the railing, and there he was standing with his arms 

crossed, wearing a sexy grin, faded jeans, and a tight white tee.

       My Review

If you are looking for a book that will touch you in ways you could not imagine, a book that stays with you for days, and weeks, (dare I say a lifetime!) after you have turned the last page, I emphatically tell you to read this book.

Full of unexpected twists, you might find some of the events hard to believe until you know the whole story. Then not only will you believe, but you wish you could know people just like these characters. In your heart you will feel like you do know them. They become friends you care deeply about.
