To believe one person can change your destiny sounds absurd. But it happened to me… twice.
Ten years ago I had no idea what I wanted out of life, until I met Hannah Michaels. She was a computer-engineering student ready to conquer the social media world, and I was smitten. Even though I knew she was taken, I had to have her.
Being the big shot that I was, I didn’t let her status stand in my way. It wasn’t long before my hands were on her thighs and my name a whisper on her lips. This smart, sexy girl inspired me to greatness, helped me grow into the kind of man I never knew I wanted to be. The man I am today.
Too bad I hadn’t grown fast enough to keep her.
Moving on wasn’t easy, but I knew I had to let her go. Eventually, I found someone to share my days and nights with, and together we had a daughter. My life was nearly perfect until my world turned upside down.
A single father has challenges, and one of those is learning how to calmly deal with your child coming home in tears. I had no idea the day I pounded on my daughter’s classmate’s door, Hannah would be the one standing on the other side.
The wild, burning desire that rushed through my veins was unwanted, and yet impossible to ignore. Letting her in meant so much more this time around. Guilt hit me like a hammer. I hated myself. I hated her. The problem was I really didn’t hate her—I wanted her more than ever.
But this time around, I can’t have her.
This time it’s my status that stands in our way—and going up against myself just might be the hardest thing I’ve ever done.
"She was my first love, but she belonged to Ethan first. Although technically I had met her before him, I had lost her, literally."
Jace Bennett met Hannah Michaels at a college party. However, they never saw each other again, until months later when she turns up on his doorstep. For his best friend, Ethan. Her boyfriend.
The more time they spent together, the more undeniable their mutual desire became. Until they found a way to be together. However, their situation became more and more untenable, until one day, everything came to an end.
"The urge to be with him was like some hungry, furious thing, and it was eating me alive."
Ten years later, they were suddenly back in each other's lives. Both had been through tough times. Both remembered their past with clarity. Both still hungered for the other. But things are never that simple because Jace Bennett is not a simple man.
This was an emotional, angsty, second chance romance, with a storyline that goes back and forth between the present and the past.
"You're not my before and you're not my after, Hannah, you're my forever."
Jace is such a complex man - brooding, angry, closed off. He finds it so hard to express himself but he's such a great father. Hannah is beautiful inside and out. She's fought hard for her freedom and happiness in the present day, and knows she deserves to be loved wholeheartedly for herself. Such a great read with a beautiful ending!
