Read an excerpt from Falling Forward by Dawn Robertson
What do you do when you hate your life and your joy is gone?
Never the sister with the best of luck, Luna Rockwell gave up on her own happiness a long time ago. She's lost herself in a never-ending cycle of work, in a career she’s come to loathe.
When a once in a lifetime opportunity comes along, on the second worst day of her life, it gives her a chance most women can only dream about. Searching for love in a new city, Luna finds herself in a love-triangle she never expected.
Will Luna find love once and for all, or is she destined to be the cat-lady aunt for the rest of her life?
Do you know what the worst part of being single is? The lack of a sex life. I love sex. I love the intimacy. I love the pleasure and sometimes the pain. I love everything about sharing something so personal with another human being. Now my sex life includes a plethora of sex toys I’ve accumulated over the years. Lelo’s, a Magic Wand, bullets, you name it… I got it.
But, it doesn’t replace the longing I have for just getting fucked sometimes. It’s been about six months since I hooked up with a guy I met on Tinder. He was cute, but as soon as he opened his mouth it was all ruined for me. There is something about a man of intelligence that gets me, and if he is smart enough, sometimes the looks don’t even matter. If I can’t hold a conversation with you about current events, politics, or just what you do for work… the chances we are going to become more than sex, is slim to none. He did the job for an itch I had to scratch, but when it was all said and done, I ghosted him. Blocked his cell number, and never looked back.
I know that is kind of a dude thing to do, but I was only after one thing and I got it. I knew there was no happily ever after with him, and I wasn’t going to lead him on. Shit, I can’t even remember his name now. Keith? Ken? Kevin? I think it was Keith. Not that it matters anyway.
There are definitely nights that I long for someone to climb into bed with me and just show me the love that I insist I don’t need. Over the last week, I’ve really had to isolate myself because I have a big fucking mouth. If it was up to me, I would’ve told my sisters about my big win. Rob insisted no one is to know until the prize has been claimed and paid, which should be finished by tomorrow. In the meantime, I’ve started looking at cities to relocate to. I’m done with Orlando, and while I will always be Orlando Strong, I need a change. Everywhere I go around this city, I can see the ghosts of my parents. The memories I shared with them growing up, and it’s not letting me get past everything that has happened. It’s making my whole grief process a lot harder than it needs to be.
