EVEN THE STRONGEST HEART CANBREAK.
I can't be with you anymore.
She tore out my heart with those words six years ago, as I lay recovering in a hospital bed. But her leaving cut deeper than any wound I bore on my flesh.
Now she's back, desperate to make amends. I swore I'd never forgive her, but one look and I'm back to a place where she loved me.
One kiss--her hands on my body, my name on her lips--makes me wonder . . . is there hope among the ruins of us?
I didn't want to leave him.
But I had to.
Back then, staying seemed impossible. I was held captive by my own fear. It wouldn't allow me to see that loving him was all I needed.
I'm not the same scared girl I was then. I'm ready to surrender to everything I feel.
But there's something he doesn't know--the real reason why I left.
And once he finds out, the second chance I've dreamed of might be nothing but a fantasy.
