Falling for You
Fake it 'til you make it has been the motto I live by since my mother died.
I'm also doing a really bad job at the making it part.
The night we met, I was at my lowest.
But you gave me a reason to feel happy again.
For the first time in over a year, I was optimistic.
You and I? We're the same. Don't form attachments. Follow the rules. Don't dream of a future.
Too bad our hearts wouldn't listen.
And this storm we're going through? The one that threatens to rip us apart?
It doesn't care that I'm falling for you.
Staying For You
When I arrived at your resort, I was broken. Emotionally and professionally, I had nothing left.
The last three books I published bombed and the ink was barely dry on my divorce papers. The divorce I never saw coming.
All I needed was peace and quiet, and you gave it to me.
That and so much more.
Hope. Courage. Friendship.
The last thing I want to do is leave, but if I stayed, I'd only be staying for you.
