Second chances are for a lucky few and from the day I was dumped into the foster system as a baby, luck hasn’t been in my favour.
I’m Jenna West, a bookaholic librarian with big dreams of becoming a romance author. I started reading at a young age to escape the sad and lonely reality of my life. And now I write to imagine the possibility of what it could be if I did find my happily ever after. Like I deserve with the man of my dreams.
Drew Walker should have been that man. He was my knight in shining armour, saving me from my train wreck of a life. From the first day I met him, he told me I was going to be someone important to him. I believed him. He was the sweetest, most caring guy I had ever met. And he became my closest friend.
I fell for him quickly and have been in love with him ever since.
But the timing wasn’t right and tragedy struck, destroying our chances of finding happiness together. We parted ways, and I thought that would be the end.
Five years later, across a busy room, our eyes lock. He flashes me his gorgeous cheeky smile and it’s like no time has passed at all. My heart melts into a puddle on the floor and the sparks fly.
I know I don’t deserve a second chance but we were such good friends once, maybe we could be something again?
Could I be lucky enough to have my happily ever after with Drew? Or is it too late, is the past lost to us forever?
