Are you living your life to the fullest?
Do you have regrets?
Noah Mackenzie knows what abandonment feels like, but she’s the girl who dreams big.
Nothing will stand in her way.
Her new world is exciting, and exploring it is the adventure she’s always wished for.
How far would you go for the people you love?
Do you protect the important things in your life with all you’ve got?
Brazen Hale is all heart.
Hard work has gotten him to where he is today, and loyalty runs deep within him.
He’s the perfect catch, but of course, there’s an obstacle for these two . . .
The timing for Noah and Brazen is all wrong.
She’s a temptation that he must find a way to resist.
Will circumstance stand in the way of love, or will these two boldly find their way into one another’s hearts?
The moment of truth isn’t far away as I pull into my parking spot. I envision her desk empty and what that’ll mean.
Will I chase her?
Yes. Unequivocally, yes.
Would she want me to?
I don’t know. I hope so.
However, there will be no chasing today. Noah is standing right in the entryway, as if she’s waiting for me. A tiny bit of the pressure on my gut subsides. Her hands fidget at her sides. Her face is free from makeup, and worry lines frame her profile.
So, when I reach her, the first thing I do is hug her. I pull her toward me and wrap my arms around her tightly.
“I’m so sorry, Brazen,” she whispers.
I don’t respond. I know she’s sorry, and I don’t want to make her feel worse about having assumed the worst about me. This bright, optimistic girl I’m getting to know jumped to the conclusion that I was a monster.
It doesn’t feel good.
My arms stay tightly wrapped around her, so she can’t see the pain on my face.

About Jennifer Michael
As a child, Jennifer Michael dreamed of being an author. Life and adulting pushed that dream down to a mere fantasy. Then, as a reader, she found the indie romance world, and the dream that had been long ago deemed unattainable became a reality.
Writing fulfills pieces of Jennifer she lost. She writes stories that range from sweet and sultry to dark and daring. Behind her computer, she’s constantly dreaming up where she’ll go next, not wanting to be put in a specific romance genre box. Pushing limits and striving to conquer wherever the characters take her is the ultimate methods to her madness.
Jennifer resides in southwest Florida where she wishes she spent much more time at the beach. She’s an avid reader of gritty books with deep emotion or dark, twisty plots and fond of more than a few guilty-pleasure television shows. She gets sucked into the world of characters from all mediums.
