Does wanting to slap the hell out of Brody Kelly make me a bad person? How about setting his hair on fire?

No, I'm not a psycho.

Yes, I AM angry.

See, a year ago, my sweet and sexy firefighter boyfriend and I broke up over something extremely ridiculous. We'd been together since we were sophomores in high school, but that was the end of that. Almost twelve years of that, mind you.

The looks he gives me tell me he still wants me. Our latest encounter has me thinking he's trying to win me back.

But I'm not willing to give in so easily.

I don't know why he used our argument as an excuse to break up, but I'm going to find out. I've lived in Serenity Point all my life and have connections and I’m not afraid to use them to get to the bottom of things.

What I am afraid of is finding something I won’t be able to handle.

He used to call me his Always and Forever.

But the secrets he’s keeping might tear us apart for good.

He’s ignored me when we’ve passed each other on the street, seemingly content in not even acknowledging my presence even though I’ve caught him staring at me every other time but always from a distance.

And now he says he misses me. And he says it on the day I didn’t tear up when I saw him and hoped it meant I was finally getting over him.

And now I’m chewing on my thumbnail, damn it.

I lower my arm and feel my hands ball into fists at my sides gritting my teeth because I want to bash his friggin’ face in then yell at him or vice versa. Either works. But then I remember myself, remember that I’m in my store and that anyone could come through the door at any time and I wouldn’t want to lose business because I’ve turned into a raging bitch. I breathe in deeply through my nose and let it out trying to calm myself which works for the moment. “You miss me…” I state quietly, my eyes narrowed as they remain locked on his.

I see his jaw muscles jump as he stares back at me. Then he nods slowly.

Well, this is just too much.

I huff out a laugh, putting my hands on my hips. “I think it might be too late, Brody,” I state a little snottily, seeing his eyes go hard upon hearing that. Whatever.

“What’re you saying, Piper?”

I shrug nonchalantly although every muscle in my body is tight. “I saw you walking to Mags’ earlier and to be honest, I felt nothing. After more than a year of wanting to cry every time I saw you, today that didn’t happen.” I shrug again to get the point across even as my heart’s beating a hundred miles an hour in my chest.

Wow, I so want to say that I liked this one much better then the first story Bigger Than The Sky buts that's really hard to say. I just finished this story and already want more. The author has taken words right out of my mouth. It does have hott alpha male lead but Brody still doesn't compare to Kade. All the characters are wonderful, sexy, amazing people. This is a 1 person POV story and Piper tells it great, Hell I couldn't hell but cry right along with her. She really has a way for her emotions to be high, of course they also where on a roller coaster ride through the hole story but was very much worth the crazy ride. Through most of the story I couldn't help but once again feel as if more would come out from the other characters, do I wish for more Mill and Kade of course right along with Piper and Brody but deep down I feel like Ryan and maybe Cassie need to have there stories told which from the bottom of my heart I really can't wait for. This hott sex filled laughable story is a MUST READ!!! The banter, jokes and sex are great and really help make this a fast pace read over and over again. I personally want more, crave and want more. This author really did a unremarkable job no words can really say how great of a job she did writing this and getting the story line to make sense had to of been loads of laughs and fun. Really is a wonderful author I enjoyed reading her work. After all this story only took me 1 day to read from cover to cover page turn to page turn word for word. Loved it. I want/crave more from this magnificent author.

My Rating

Harper Bentley has taught high school English for 22 years. Although she’s managed to maintain her sanity regardless of her career choice, jumping into the world of publishing her own books goes to show that she might be closer to the ledge than was previously thought.

After traveling the nation in her younger years as a military brat, having lived in Alaska, Washington State and California, she now resides in Oklahoma with her teenage daughter, two dogs and one cat, happily writing stories that she hopes her readers will enjoy.
