Olivia’s starting over in the Big Easy. But just under the surface, she’s terrified her abusive ex-boyfriend will find her.
Kyle’s dream of playing pro baseball was shattered when surgery left him with rods in his leg, a rebuilt knee, and no idea who he is without the sport he’d built his life around.
Broken and alone, Olivia and Kyle could be exactly what the other needs.
Just as they begin to trust what they’re feeling, things take a dangerous turn when Olivia’s past catches up to her. Will Olivia run again, or stay and fight for the life she and Kyle deserve?
“Liv, I would never let anything happen to you.” I know. The words are a firm, solid promise. As his lips press to my forehead, I practically shudder. “Just let me in a little more. I won’t let you get hurt.”
I won’t let you get hurt again, either.
Before I can look up, his arms wrap around me and he holds me close. The hug has the most perfect amount of affection and pressure to shield me from the world. The softness of his T-shirt laced with his cologne is like the most luxurious blanket I never want to leave.
I get comfortable, leaning into him still, basking in the quiet, serene atmosphere, until I doze off, loving the way I feel in his arms. (Olivia, Chapter Seven)
Sophie Lira grew up smack dab in the middle of New Jersey. As a self-proclaimed sports junkie she can usually be found rooting for the New York Yankees, Baltimore Ravens, and especially her Alma Mater, Rutgers University. She’s also a seasoned beer snob with a preference for crisp pilsners, pumpkin anything, and chocolatey stouts. Her number one passion outside of writing is her never-ending wanderlust. Sophie is always looking for her next batch of frequent flier miles, passport stamps, and the perfect clouds to post on Instagram. She still resides in Central New Jersey and spends her days at an Industrial Design firm working in HR. Favorite things include: Dunkin’ Donuts coconut iced coffee, the Olympics, all-you-can-eat sushi, and Siberian Huskies.
