What happens when the lines of love and friendship are blurred?
After discovering a heart shattering secret Elora Gerent collects the fragments of her life, and returns home in hopes of finding a way to put them all together. What she didn't expect to find was her sexy playboy neighbor Thane.
Thane has shards of his own that he's left with to reassemble. Never did he imagine that the wholesome girl next door would make him even want to try. On the Eve of his fourth deployment a hope is crushed and they part on bad terms.
When a dreaded phone call reaches Elora she realizes that the frame is aways bigger than its picture.
Will Thane and Elora remain fragments of who they are, or will they forge the shattered shards?
Author bio and social networking links:
I'm a wife, mother and healthcare worker who is currently having a secret love affair with Starbucks coffee and Marble Loaf cake, we meet at least three times a week.
I'm also a crazy cat lady, I have two sphynx cats (yes the cats that have no hair) Sir Butterton Nugs & Le Sheik Meeko (aka The Booboo and the Meekee)
If I could choose any moment to instantly vaporize it would be now. Hell, I’d settle for a teleportation beam to Mars. Maybe right before death by suffocation, I would be acquainted with the god of war himself, Ares.
Just then, I felt a warm arm circle around my waist and I was pulled up next to a body carved from a slab of stone. When I turned to look, it was my neighbor. “Hey baby.” Leaning against me, he set a gallon of milk into my basket and then kissed me before I could speak. It wasn’t a quick peck on the lips; no he cradled his hands on either side of my face, pressed his lips softly against my own, nibbled on my lip and caressed my tongue with his. Wow! Ask and you shall receive. After a moment, he looked up as if oblivious to the fact that we were not alone. “Friends of yours?”
The first time I set eyes on her, she was wearing a worn out T-shirt and sweats. Her black hair, pulled up in a messy bun atop her head and she was staring right at me trying to reel her tongue back in her mouth. She was beautiful, and I’m not talking about your typical aesthetic beautiful, I’m talking about real beauty. The kind that’s fresh faced, wholesome and with a body of curves. For the first time in a long time I feel that twinge of humanity flicker in my empty soul.
I enjoyed this fast read and was extremely happy with the outcome. The "friendship" between Elora and Thane was back and forth heartache and trust issues. I was overjoyed when Thane saved the day in the grocery stire because really Justin needed hus ass kicked. Trying to get back the heart he shattered. UGH....
Thanks to Nana and her stern command Elora and Thane gets the chance they deserve.
