Coming September 2018
I’m fine. That’s what I tell everyone. I’ve never been better despite a series of heartbreaks then moving across the country to restart my life. I’m cool with staying in my pajamas all day, hiding away, until Jack gets me off my ass. He sees past my fake smiles. Hell, he cleans my shoe when I step in dog shit. He’s close to perfect.
But the past has a way of catching up to me. A promise I made my husband before he died keeps any chance at love a distant dream. The harder I fall for Jack, the guiltier I feel for breaking my promise. Everyone’s got their hang-ups, right?
Jack…can’t stay away.
Life is good. I’ve got a successful landscaping business and I’m an active member of my community. But I know better than most that our tragedies shape who we are. Gemma comes from the insidious world I turned away from, but beneath her detached facade she’s strong and resilient and I can’t leave this undeniable thing I’ve got for her alone. I shouldn’t want her, and yet I do.
Being with Gemma makes me feel like I’ve been hiding without even knowing it. But something from her past keeps us from moving forward. Someone. Can a simple man compete with a ghost?
