ABOUT THE BOOK
Sometimes one good dose of trouble could turn your life around, put you on the right path. But I'd taken the opposite side of the forked road and headed off looking for even more trouble, like a junkie constantly searching for the next high. Never would I have guessed that turn would lead me to her.
I couldn't stop thinking about her. She was an angel, a hard core, bone-fide angel and in her short life, she'd already had a taste of hell.
Despair. Heartbreak. Silence. That was all I'd grown to know, until he showed up next door.
The handsome, tattooed stranger had the kind of eyes that were hard to look away from, and he gazed at me as if we'd been friends or even lovers in a different life. He looked at me as if he knew me, and suddenly I had this flash of feeling as if I was right where I was supposed to be.
Ledger chose the wrong path. Jacy chose the wrong husband.
Overcoming the mistakes of his wild youth, Ledger has spent the last few years paying his debt to society, and the one thing that’s given him hope has been listening to his cellmate talk about his ex-wife Jacy, a woman who deserved the best from a man but received the worst. Once free, Ledger’s protective instincts compel him to make sure she’s okay.
Jacy’s working to reclaim her life. She quietly runs her coffee shop in the small resort town of Rockwood Beach while trying to forget the violence and pain in her past. She’s made progress, but trust doesn’t come easily.
Can these two broken hearts find love together?
Can they escape their past lives?
Or will buried secrets resurface and finally destroy them?
