First loves never die but Grayson Ford comes close. Bleeding out in a war zone, he barters with God. Bring him back alive, and he’ll make it right with his girl.
All I want is Emma. I need her, and I fight for her memory. A story. A smile. Anything. But it’s all blank .
Emma is not his girl anymore. Time has skipped by and life’s been hard. She strips to pay the bills, waitresses to fill the hours between classes and her third job. All while working to be the best mama she can be to the little girl who will never know her daddy. Even though Grayson abandoned her, she mourned his death. Until he calls, and everything she knew was wrong.
It’s him. The him that ruined my life. That made my life. That confused my mind to the point that I can’t figure out if I’ve been destroyed or set free. The him that… is… dead.
He’s back with one objective–Emma Kingsley–and she never sees it coming.
This second novella in the series finds Emma taking care of her young daughter. Emma has three jobs as she tries to get established in her career. She is a stripper, waitress and doing her internship. The later is to help her get a job in her chosen occupational field. The two former jobs are to pay her bills. She works hard to make everything right for her daughter and herself. She receives news of Grayson’s death that devastates her. It was one thing for him to run out on her but to live with the realization of his death…devastating.
Grayson was horribly injured and his team slaughtered. When he wakes up in the hospital he knows how he made it through it all. Emma. His girl. His everything. He knows he has to make this right. He has to have his Emma. He can’t hide from her or himself any longer.
This was a great novella filled with love, longing and loss. The sex was still Meh, but otherwise the book was perfect. Oh, and a Titan sighting too.
