A second chance romance. What happens when you fall for the boy next door? Bea Norwood had the market on normal. Drama free life? Check. A single-mother who doubled as her confidant and partner in crime? Check. A neighbor and best friend she trusted more than anyone? Check. But that was until the day her mother remarried. The day that changed everything. When her best friend's cousin, Liam Falcon, is sent to live with his aunt and uncle to clean up his act, Bea finds herself falling for the boy next door. With their hearts so infinitely entwined, Bea turns to Liam as her only escape from her new step-brother's daily torment at home. Bea thought their love could conquer anything. But she was wrong. Love was for fools, and she was the biggest fool of them all. When Liam left Lakeport, he took her heart with him, shattering the organ to pieces. Six years later, Liam takes a trip back to Lakeport to visit his family, and to see HER. His first love. The girl who holds his heart. The same girl who shattered it six years ago without looking back. Liam is hell-bent on seeing Bea again after six years, but what he finds tears his heart in half. Bea Norwood is a shell of the girl he fell in love with. Underneath the baggy clothes, and pale skin, he knows she's still in there somewhere, he just needs to find her. Liam will stop at nothing to win his girl back, but sometimes, ignorance is bliss, and Liam isn't prepared for Bea's truth.
Because you don’t go around kissing your best friend’s dad, do you? Even though that’s all you ever dream about.
Holding On To Forever by Siobhan Davis and S.B Alexander have blown me away with this tragic and emotional, new adult, college romance! This book was sp seamlessly written and just flowed so well that there's no way I would have known it was a collaboration between TWO authors if I hadn't already known. Siobhan is one of my TOP 3 all-time favorite authors and although S.B Alexander is a new to me author, I most definitely wouldn't be upset if these two decided to do another collaboration!
Lauren will do anything besides face reality. Her truth won’t set her free because it’s too busy hunting her. It chases her into the ER more often than she can count. Dr. Venable is hellbent on finding answers for his most frequent hospital visitor. Even when his stunningly beautiful patient is difficult and resistant. He’ll uncover her pain because he wants nothing more than to heal the sassy young woman. Long nights. Rising temperatures. Feverish needs. They spend more time than ethical on their quest for answers. His position. Her age. Nothing will keep them apart. Not until they get what they came for. Love may not be a cure, but they’re going to test it anyway.
How far would you go to expose the truth?
“Even after the horrors, it’s still him who haunts me. It’s him who visits me in my nightmares to remind me he left me there. The further I push him into my subconscious, the more he torments my mind. Archer will always be there. Taunting me with his promises. His sweet words that meant nothing.”
The problem with having a first and second love? That would be loving them at the same time. My story isn’t some sexy triangle. It’s exquisite agony. Fate gave me two men to love, but none of us knew which one I could keep.
