team. As the youngest son of a former NFL player, he lives a life of
privilege with an endless stream of girls vying for his attention. He
always gets his way.

Until I come along.

Everything about him irks me. From his crooked smile and sexy, dark hair,
to his obscenely large trust fund. But when we’re forced to spend time
together, the undeniable spark between us blazes and resisting him becomes
one of my greatest challenges.

Can I shut down his game, or will he tackle my heart?

ALL MY LIFE by Prescott Lane is now available!

 

KFF’s delighted to share Prescott Lane’s all-new contemporary romance stand-alone, All My Life

ADD TO GOODREADS

The beginning of any love story starts with the meet.

I’ve known Garrett Hollis since before I can remember, and I’ve loved him just as long. I loved him while he loved someone else. I loved him when he had a baby with her. I loved him when she left him.

The greatestof love stories is that between a dad and his daughter. I should know. I’ve had a front row seat. First steps, first words, all the big moments.

Garrett was just a teenager when Mia was born. I’ve watched him braid his daughter’s hair, hold her hand crossing the street, seen her asleep on his chest. I’m the best friend, the one they can count on for everything from dance lessons to motherly advice, anything they need. I’m their go-to girl.

The bestpart of any love story is the happily ever after.

But what if the happily ever after doesn’t include you?

All my life, that’s how long I’ve loved him.

Of course, he’s clueless.

A stand-alone, contemporary romance.

4.5 STARS ~ REVIEWED BY SHARON THÉRÈSE AT KFF

For one reason or another, we can’t always get around to reading all the books we’d like to. Yep, that damn TBR list never seems to shorten, does it? So when I was given the opportunity to read and review All My Life, not only did I drop everything, but an added plus for me was discovering a new author. I can’t tell you how much Lane’s writing impressed me. I was instantly sucked into her love story; in fact, so much that after reading a couple of chapters I knew I wouldn’t be able to put it down. Starting a book in the evening is at the best of times perilous and once again I fell into that trap, ending up doing an all-nighter. And there’s nothing easier than judging how a good read is by the book hangover’s intensity. Mine lingered much longer than I’d expected it to. The lovely cover has to be mentioned. It certainly encouraged me to find out who that guy with a child on his shoulders was; the title…a tad misleading because these few words weren’t from whom I thought they would be.

“Guess you missed me,”
“I’ve been missing you all my life.”
 

Lane’s plot and character development left me wide-eyed and open-mouthed. It’s true that the single dad trope has been done before, but I can’t honestly remember relishing a book on these lines so much. Garrett is totally devoted to the wellbeing of his daughter, puts her life before his and without any qualms or regrets, goes out of his way to give her everything she needs. Swoon ladies ‘cause here is one drop-dead gorgeous guy that can’t cook for the life of him but braids hair like an expert! When someone steps in, the small town folk of Eden Valley who revel in the tiniest bit of gossip realize what a loving father he is and back him up one hundred percent. Mia Hollis becomes theirs. I have to say that on occasion, she puts her father in a tight spot with not such an outrageous wish, his happiness being her main concern. Now then, how she goes about it is laugh-out-loud and totally unexpected. She’s nifty at bartering, gets her own way and he goes along with it up to a certain point.

“Garrett, I know you. You love hard. There was only room for one woman in your life. Mia.”
“My life, Mia, we wouldn’t be where we are without you. My life doesn’t happen without you. I know that,”
 

It has been said that love is a trick of the heart, a fool to the mind. There’s no rules or regulations to guide us so when it’s unrequited, being stuck in a love-limbo becomes a toil like no other. We as women can see the difference between a close friendship and an intimate one, we know how the opposite sex’s mind works. But how much patience does one need for that person to see you? Months…years? I understood Devlyn’s stance. With no desire to rock the boat or lose the little bit she had of Garrett, she keeps her feelings close in the hope that one day he’d open his eyes. She became my sorrow, my joy, and I fell hard. Despite the story revolving around him and Mia, in more ways than one, it’s hers. Through her narration, I learnt how this sassy woman with a weird sense of humor and even weirder dress sense suffered in silence, but she never ever felt sorry for herself. Reading her innermost thoughts literally did me in, and her boundless generosity towards Mia and her father is such an emotional wringer that I wept into my pillow.

‘As much as we try not to hurt the ones we love, they always end up being the ones we hurt the most. Loving hard means hurting harder.’ 

Mia’s a real sweety, worships the ground her father walks on and doesn’t have a bad bone in her body. However, like a lot of young people, she says things without having all the facts, or perhaps it would be better to describe her as spontaneous. This spontaneity would unknowingly cause problems, making me think that decisions made by others because of it, would be the end of a beginning.

“My heart broke so many times for you,” she says. “It’s what my heart expects to happen. Garrett Hollis equals a broken heart.” 

Garrett. Crikey…I could have jumped into my Kindle, whipped his blinkers off and given him a good talking to! But when he does put two and two together, it wasn’t just his fatherly skills which aroused my hmm…interest. Get ready for the high-speed-hot-as-hell bedroom scenes ‘cause this guy’s more than just a dirty talker! That being said, the handling of a certain situation annoyed me to the point where I wanted to knock both his and Devlyn’s heads together. I thought Garrett’s fears for them not coming out in the open sooner a tad unwarranted and Devlyn didn’t help matters by being so unselfish. When the story took a surprising turn, I can’t tell you how pleased I was. The narrative pace is steady-to-fastish, the romance slow-burn. How the past was presented I found original regardless of my dislike for one of the characters who had her say, and the dual point of view angle in present is one of my faves. All in all, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this friends-to-lovers stand-alone novel. Bravo Lane!

REVIEW ALERT ~ REVIVE: A Redemption Novel by Marley Valentine

We are thrilled to share Donna’s 5 ★ review of Marley Valentine’s all new contemporary romance, REVIVE: A Redemption Novel

Add to Goodreads

 

Sasha was the girl next door, and at fifteen I was sure she was my forever. She was my constant, and never let me down.


Until she did.

She broke me, yet I still found myself longing for her with a debilitating desperation.
Then came Taylah. A crazy and chaotic hurricane of beauty and bad decisions, she breathed life back into me.
For her, my heart began to beat a new rhythm. She was whimsical, and I was level-headed.
We were mismatched in the most perfect of ways.
But could she compete with history? Taylah was my reprieve, but could she be my new forever?

REVIEWED BY DONNA ON BEHALF OF KFF

Hendrix Michaels has known Sasha since school and at the tender age of 15, he was so sure she was his one and only. The girl of his dreams with a future for them both. Drix would never have believed Sasha would let him down, but she did. However much she’d disillusioned him, Drix still wanted her. Then a little whirlwind came along called Taylah; beautiful, funny and enigmatic. She gave Drix new hope and made his heart beat faster. Regardless of being complete opposites, Taylah would have to compete with Sasha who Hendrix has held on a pedestal for so long.

We met Hendrix in Reclaim which was his brother Jagger’s story, and from the offset I could tell that Drix as I knew him, to be a man with a heart of gold. He helps others without caring for his own feelings and aspirations. Such a selfless and giving soul. These two women shake him right to the core. They are nothing like each other. Taylah is a feisty, hardworking sassy girl and she’s drawn to Drix from the moment she met him a couple of times in Reclaim. She’s very intrigued by him and aware that there’s some sort of history with Sasha, but she can’t help being a moth to a flame when it comes to Drix.Sasha is a very complex character, full of insecurities and self-doubt. And although they have a long-standing bond since childhood, she’s her own worst enemy since she can’t seem to make up her mind whether she wants him or not. Now then, the banter and chemistry between Hendrix and Taylah is very intense, and I had no idea if it was just flirty fun or if there was a potential relationship, but it all depended on whether Drix could leave the past behind. Was Sasha really his forever? You will see!

I’d been anticipating Revive since we saw these characters in Reclaim and what Valentine was going to map out for them. Right from the beginning, I was gripped. We get flashes of the past as well as the present and points of view from Hendrix, Sasha and Taylah. It was welcome being able to read what each one of them was thinking and experiencing with their feelings and emotions. There are musical references and all I’ll say is chapter 14 had me in tears with the words and the song that matched with that part of the book. I had a lot of emotions throughout; tears, smiles and aww moments.

Ms. Valentine very cleverly penned a book that just kept me guessing all the way through. Dramatic scenes, very hot scenes. Oh boy, were they steamy! Hendrix is a very virile guy, *laughs* As I said before, there are musical references and a very complete playlist to accompany the reading experience. I haven’t been able to stop thinking about Revive and the powerful impact it had on me. If I could give it more than five stars, I would. I’m definitely going to be re-reading this story as I can’t stop thinking about it and am unable to pick up my Kindle to read another book. Kudos to the author for giving us readers a very special treat. I just didn’t want the book to end. I could read about these characters forever.

BLOG TOUR ~ DATING THE ENEMY by Nicole Williams

Today KFF are on tour with Nicole Williams’ all-new enemies-to-lovers romance, DATING THE ENEMY

 

AP new - synopsis.jpg

 

Ms. Romance, Hannah Arden, writes one of the top read relationship advice columns in the nation. Mr. Reality, Brooks North, writes the top read relationship advice column. Ms. Romance believes in true love and soul mates. Mr. Reality believes love is a term humanity has assigned to the primal instinct to procreate. She believes in fate—he in chance. She knows there’s one right person for everyone—he knows there are multiple ones. The two writers couldn’t be more polarized on relationships. They’re professional rivals, and philosophical antagonists.

For eight years, their battles have been fought with words and ink. That changes when they apply for the same position at the World Times and find themselves face-to-face for the first time. Brooks isn’t the sour-faced, antiquity of a man Hannah pictured. And Hannah isn’t exactly the middle-aged shrew with cat hair on her housedress that Brooks imagined either.

In lieu of competing for the promotion traditional ways, the two writers are presented with playing the leading roles in a social experiment unlike any before. Can a person be tricked into falling in love? Can a relationship be crafted under the right string of circumstances? Hannah knows the answer. So does Brooks.

Agreeing to the terms, the two set out on a three-month dating experiment, live-streamed for the world to watch. All Hannah has to do to win is not fall in love with the narcissistic brute. All Brooks has to do is get the starry-eyed dreamer to fall in love with him. Both are so confident in their philosophies, they expect the challenge to be easy.

With the world watching, Brooks and Hannah will be forced to confront their beliefs and conclude, once and for all, who’s right. The answer is one neither of them saw coming.

“Where do you think you’re going?”
​I jolted. Brooks had an annoying talent of being able to appear out of thin air. “As far away from this dance floor as I can get.”
​“But we haven’t danced yet.” Brooks crept in front of my path, forcing me to stop or crash into him.
​Braking to a stop, I shot him a look. “I’ll be sure to shed some tears for that later. When I’m asleep.”
​“Someone’s notably grumpier now than they were earlier.” His eyes narrowed in an investigative kind of way. “Methinks you weren’t totally forthcoming about you minding if I danced with other women.”
​The cameraman was leaning in, our ever-present third wheel, but I didn’t feel the need to lower my voice. “Methinks you were onto something when you expressed trepidation over your manhood’s functioning properties after tonight.”
​Brooks let out a low whistle. “Under the right circumstances, those words, from that mouth, would be such a turn-on.”
​“The right circumstances being what? Your standing appointment with a dungeon and a dominatrix?”
​One dark brow lifted. “Bad kitty.”
​“No. Grumpy cat.” I circled my face before going around him.
His arm whipped out, cinching around my waist to draw me back to him. “Let’s see if I can help with that.” His hand found mine, lifting it, while his other secured at my back, bringing me closer. And closer.
And . . .
“Brooks,” I hissed, remembering the camera before I put into words what I’d just felt.
He didn’t appear the slightest bit fazed. “What was that about my functioning manhood?”
“I don’t want to feel it digging into my stomach when I’m trying to focus on tangoing.”
“Then you shouldn’t have worn that dress.”
“And we’ll lump that in the category known as victim-blaming,” I muttered, trying to ignore the hard swell rubbing against my midsection.
“It’s not your fault my dick has a thing for your dress.” Brooks didn’t lower his voice at all. “It’s his fault, one hundred and ten percent. Total case of dick-blaming right here.”

BLURB

Willow Taylor lives in a castle with large walls and iron fences. But this is no ordinary castle. It’s called Heartstone Psychiatric hospital and it houses forty other patients. It has nurses with mean faces and techs with permanent frowns.

It has a man, as well. A man who is cold and distant. Whose voice drips with authority. And whose piercing gray eyes hide secrets, and maybe linger on her face a second too long.

Willow isn’t supposed to look deep into those eyes. She isn’t supposed to try to read his tightly leashed emotions. And neither is she supposed to touch herself at night, imagining his powerful voice and that cold but beautiful face.

No, Willow Taylor shouldn’t be attracted to Simon Blackwood, at all.

Because she’s a patient and he’s her doctor. Her psychiatrist.

The medicine man.

WARNING: This book discusses sensitive issues including but not limited to, depression and suicide.

Reviewed by Donna on behalf of KFF

Willow Taylor. An eighteen-year-old who resides at Heartstone Psychiatric hospital with forty other patients, nurses and techs she regards as the enemy. There’s a man who seems cold and distant with piercing grey eyes. She isn’t supposed to look at him with longing or touch herself at night with him in mind. He’s her psychiatrist, Dr. Simon Blackwood, much older than her and off-limits. The Medicine Man with inappropriate want.

Willow’s beautiful, funny and been battling a mental disorder from a young age, struggling to live her life like any other young woman. She doesn’t connect with any of the professionals except she finds herself drawn to Dr. Blackwood to the point where finds herself talking to him. Simon seems to be able to read Willow, even sees right through her.

Simon Blackwood is harbouring some deep issues of his own and it compels him to want to fix everyone, especially the girl with the silver-coloured long hair. It’s undeniable something about her catches his attention and somehow he’s seen as her hero, which is the last thing he wants to be to anyone. Dr. Blackwood carries a lot of guilt on his shoulders, and discovering his many hidden depths made this read a real page-turner.

The secondary characters were very well-written into the mix, and the interactions between Willow and Renn, Vi and Penny were quite funny at times. Regardless of them battling their own issues, it was nice to see banter and friendships forming. Whether it was their chats, reading or playing poker, they were very entertaining. In one scene with yoga, I couldn’t help but laugh-out-loud.

Heartbreak abounds. Let’s not forget this is a psychiatric hospital and there are some elements that not only made me tearful but the patients’ inner battles with their mental illnesses I also found upsetting. The harsh reality of it all is brought home when they’re having a bad day and nothing less than heart-rending. Chemistry and hot steamy scenes had me fanning myself because just wow, Simon Blackwood is one hell of a dirty-talker. Their taboo doctor-patient relationship without forgetting to mention the age gap, had me hoping and wishing it would or could work out for them. Simon’s a hot broody male and intrigued me no-end with the mystery surrounding him.

Medicine Man and his little warrior have such a rollercoaster of a time with their feelings and turmoil. Ms. Kent has spun quite the forbidden the tale; so much so that I was sat on the edge of my seat, waiting for it all to go terribly wrong. The author is a very talented wordsmith and I felt every word and emotion throughout. There was so much sadness surrounding the backstory of depression and it was dealt with delicately and respectfully. I also enjoyed the playlist which accompanies the book and it brings out all the feels. I can’t recommend this book enough and will be doing a re-read with the music on repeat. Tip; one of the tracks Medicine Man by Charlotte OC sums up everything beautifully. Bravo Ms. Kent. Five well-earned stars.

“Do you have someone special, Dr. Blackwood?”

Someone you kiss? Someone you grab and pull into a dark alley and press against

walls?

I don’t say that but I’m definitely asking that.

It’s like he hears the unspoken questions because the heat of his body seems to have

doubled. Like his blood is rushing in his veins with an uncanny speed.

With flaring nostrils and a hard jaw, he answers, “No.”

“Why not?”

“Because I’m busy.”

I want to smile. Actually, I’ve never wanted to smile this hard. Ever. His answer calms

me but it also makes me restless to move closer to him. I want to trace my palm over the arch

of his chest and see if I got it right in my dreams.

But I don’t do any of those things. I don’t want him to take away this small concession

he’s given me.

Why is he even giving it to me? I’m not complaining. But still.

“Busy with patients?”

“Busy with my job. Yes,” he says, all professional-like.

That’s what he is. Professional and distant. Dedicated to his job and fixing people. If

Mass General let him go, then they are idiots.

I’m an idiot, too, in this moment.

Instead of backing off, I want to do something. Something that might crack his cool

façade. Maybe reaching up and messing up his no-nonsense hair.

What would he do? If I did that? If I grabbed his collar and pushed him against the wall?

And kissed him?

My eyes drop to his lips, his soft, soft lips. There’s a cleft in the middle of his lower lip. I

want to taste that cleft, dig my tongue in it, wet it, suck on it, bite it.

“So you don’t have fun at all?”

“No. I’m not a fun guy.”

I watch his lips form the words, and every syllable that comes out of his mouth makes

my need to shake him, kiss him, mess him up, stronger. Stronger and stronger.

The need is so consuming that I hardly notice when he puts his hand on my palm and

takes it off his body. It’s final and smooth, his action. Effortless. As though my touch barely

registered to him.

“But I think you have a point. It’s after hours and I should go… have fun rather than

spending my time with a patient.” He steps back then. “I’ll see you next week. Same time.”

Logical. Rich. Driven. And he wants her. . .

More Than Crave You, an all-new sexy standalone from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Shayla Black is LIVE!

04 MoreThanCraveYou.jpg

I’m Evan Cook—billionaire tech entrepreneur and widower. Professionally, I’ve got it all. But since my wife died, my personal life has fallen apart. Remarrying seems like the obvious answer, so I place an ad. I’m not asking for much. The ideal woman only needs to be smart, organized, pretty, and helpful—both in and out of bed—without expecting romance. I never thought to look right in front of me…but it turns out that Nia Wright, my sexy, sassy assistant, just might be the perfect candidate.

After an unexpectedly hot night together, I’m ready to stop interviewing strangers and simply marry her. On paper, she ticks every box on my list. Best of all, she’s far too sensible to fall for me. I didn’t see the flaw in my logic until it was too late. I never thought I’d lose my heart for the first time. And I definitely never imagined Nia could consume me. But she’s harboring a secret that could tear us apart. Can I prove I more than crave her before it’s too late?

Reviewed by Emma-Louise on behalf of KFF

This is no ordinary romance. This is the story of two people: one who always felt something and the other until having their nose pushed into didn’t see the other as anything other than their corporate right arm. For someone who reads mostly romance, it takes a lot to surprise me. Knowing this author has been hacking through books like most gardeners take out weeds you always know she’ll strike oil. This was certainly the case here, Evan and Nia were complex and down to earth (my favourite type of characters), Evan a billionaire tech entrepreneur is a demon in the boardroom, and yet in his personal life he’s stunted and inexperienced. Widowed only six months prior to the beginning of this book we shadow him through some of the hardest hitting scenes I’ve experienced in a very long time. He seems to see in so many shades of gray and just moves through the motions, and yet the moment his glasses are ripped off he makes such impressive strides to correct his wrongs. Never afraid to admit when he’s wrong, this is what truly makes Evan as impressive as he is.

For the many things they have in common is Nia and Evan live very different lives. She lives to the fullest and experiences as much as she can. Coming from the background she does makes Nia a fighter with a steel rod backbone and enough gumption to keep many a person literally on their toes. She’s quirky and endearing. She moves through life with her eye on the prize. She only wants to be taken seriously and to say she’s not afraid of hard work is putting it mildly. She constantly stays one step ahead of poor, hapless Evan. She’s the light to his dark. The one person he can always rely on and rely on her he does. As I said he sees her as his right arm and just like we move our arms without any real thought that’s how she operates with Evan.

For a long while I was left pondering where this story was going. When it finally stepped off the block we hurtled around the track like Usain Bolt. Evan assumes life should be organised, sorry Mr. Cook but nothing in life is ever practical or precise. His life though full of ambition is empty and bleak, so he can be forgiven for deciding to take outlandish options to correct his path. We all know only too well that dragging someone else into our lives when we’re not fit for ourselves is just asking for trouble. Nia tries to help him see the error of his ways but he just won’t see reason. Stubborn apparently is written into his DNA.

“I’m only ever honest with you”. I scratch my chin with a deprecating grin. “Sometimes to my own detriment.”
“I know.” She sounds about that. “And I appreciate that you don’t like to me about your feelings.”
“I never will, Nia. I promise.”
 

For many a chapter of this book I felt deflated and overwhelmed. Not in a bad way I hasten to add. Evan makes everything so much more difficult than it has to be for himself and in the process he drags others into the chaos. With all this turbulence came a large helping of sweat and heat. The sex scenes were off the charts, the story flowed like a well-composed piece of music. Up and down the notes until the ultimate crescendo, which thankfully wasn’t dragged out, my poor nerves couldn’t have taken any more negativity if I tried.

These two characters are meant for each other, but nobody is perfect, least of all Evan and he readily admits he’ll make mistakes but as long as they stick together they can work through them, together.

“Honey, no. You’ve made my life. Nothing would be right without you. Know why?” I shake my head because I can’t wait for her to either guess or demur. “Because I think—no, I know—I love you, too.” 

More Than Crave You is a story of the human condition. How human beings thrive and succeed on their darkest days, standing tall and strong in the face of the eye of the storm. As one of my most favourite quotes says: ‘You have been weighed, you have been measured, and you have been found wanting’. This to me encompasses completely what this book is about.

On a side note: I don’t know if it was meant to but I was left pondering one small worrying detail. I wonder if I’m right. Guess with time I’ll find out. More Than Crave You is the fourth book the series. It can be read as a standalone and I did read it as such; however, I really would have loved to have met the previous characters prior to this read, but it is not necessary for everyone. Give this book a go, you will not be disappointed.

Raised on the streets, Shay Morgan yearns for a real family, where love is unconditionally offered—even when trust doesn’t come easy. Before that day arrives, she trespasses and steals in order to provide for the few people who’ve gone out of their way to protect her.

Born to privilege, Ben Bishop loathes his family for the despicable things they’ve done, and not done. He vows to be different, play by the rules, do the right thing. Building a thriving nightclub with those who share his values dominates his world.

One explosive night at his bar, Loading Zone, changes everything. For both of them. Forever.

A dance of opponents commences as they thwart with suspicion, start to trust, then sidestep to protect themselves from a fatal blow. Until they soon wonder if they’ve been fighting for the same side all along.

As they begin to open their hearts, they up the stakes with a one-week pact. She shows him the power in breaking the law. He demonstrates the virtue of following it.

Then a far-reaching crime is suddenly exposed—that his family committed. And for one chance moment, Shay and Ben hold the key to right the wrong, correct the injustice. But at what cost?

Will they be able to return from the other side together? Or will their differences tear them apart?

Flirting with danger…has never been so tempting.

***LAWBREAKER is a standalone, full-length new adult romance told in dual POV. Due to mature themes and adult language, this book is for those 18 and older.***

 

Exclusive LAWBREAKER Excerpt

ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

From Ben’s point of view…The rumble of the idling V8 engine vibrated through the truck.Faint gasoline fumes wafted in through the cranked-down windows, then blew out just as fast on the crosswind.But none of those distractions fazed Shay.Her attention had fixed solely on me. “Why do you like me?”“More than like you.”

She didn’t say anything to my clarification. Instead, those expressive green eyes searched mine. Her chest rose with a measured inhale, fell on a slower exhale.

Her slender brows twitched down for a split second. “But why?”

A million reasons came to mind.

But in that moment, one echoed with more force than the rest.

“You live loud…without saying a word. When you’re around, you drown out all the noise. When I’m with you, there is nothing else.”

Silence filled the cab.

We sat on opposite sides. Lap belts held us securely down.

But she flattened her small hand over the worn leather of the bench seat, into the space between us.

I bridged the remaining gap, spread my fingers wide, until my larger pinky touched hers, knuckle to tip.

Long seconds drifted by.

The engine rumbled.

The crosswind blew.

But we didn’t move away from our fragile connection.

We stared at each other…and saw through every defense we’d built. As we inhaled and exhaled, breaths coming faster, shallower, I got the sense that we breathed common air for the very first time.

We’d come from different worlds, but we occupied the same space in that moment. In spite of our differences. Maybe because of them.

But on her next quick breath, her brow furrowed. Her hand twitched away.

Whatever she struggled with had broken through. That spiky armor clamped back around her.

Moment over.

And yet, she still stared at me. Gaze fierce. Jaw set. “When I’m with you, I become someone else. I forget who I am. And I can’t let that happen. You make me believe I can trust again. And that terrifies me.”

I stared back at her, undaunted. “I will never let you forget who you are. Become someone else with me, someone better. Get terrified; we’ll only grow stronger.”

After a long beat, she sucked in a deep breath. Then she pursed her lips and blew it out, nice and slow.

She remained silent. Committed to nothing.

But then I felt her pinky press against mine. Tentative, at first. Then firmer, solid.

She’d spoken, in her own way. And I’d heard loud and clear: I’ll become someone better, I’ll get terrified…just as long as you don’t let me down.

I gusted out a relieved sigh. “Well, hell. No pressure there.”

She didn’t laugh. Her eyes narrowed.

I reached farther and slid my hand over hers. “I won’t let you down.”

Nothing in the world could make me blow this…even though the weight of our world rested on my shoulders.

Including lightening the mood. Now. Before she changes her mind and bolts from your truck.
