More Info: Goodreads
Twenty-two year old Faren Mitchell hears the two words that change her abbreviated life forever. They're so final Faren decides she has nothing to lose by seizing every remaining moment of what life has to offer.
Until Faren collides with a motorcycle ridden by billionaire Jared McKenna.
Even the dark secret of her past and catharsis as a physical therapist can't save Faren from the sexual spiral that waits for her in the arms of a man who commits to no one. When circumstances force her to get a second job as an exotic dancer, Faren never imagines how close that choice will bring her to the brink of a new reality she is unequipped to handle.
“Love sears the heart immortal
The embers of love burnt down to the token which remains ….”
“Why are you being so difficult when we both know what we want– what we need?” Mick asks against my cheek as his hands grip my shoulders.
“Why do you assume we’ll end up together?” I counter.
“I assume nothing,” he says and my brows arch as his hands heat the bare skin of my shoulders. He pulls me to him and I’m so sure he’ll kiss me I close my eyes as his breath warms my face, holding in my sigh. But it moves out of me unbidden- like an invitation.
Mick doesn’t kiss me. Instead he finishes his comment, “I know it.”
He walks out, leaving me standing there holding the door, my lips swollen by his kisses, every patch of skin burns from the memory of his touch. The desperate want of it again.
I slam the door and stalk to my vanity table. Where I put on my face for strangers….
Can anyone have it all?
