Now isn’t the time for a beautiful single mom to steal my heart.
Especially not one that I’ve loved before.
I’m not that boy anymore, though. Life has been less than kind.
My father abandoning us and leaving me to be the man of the house at a young age started the chip growing on my shoulder.
He moved on to another life and I helped my family mend as best I could.
Fate has a way of shining down on those that work hard for their dreams.
I carved out my own path and earned the right to buy a portion of the firm I helped build.
It’s time to claim my success and focus on myself.
But then she shows up and my world turns around in circles. Just having her in the room leaves me wanting a softness in my life that feels foreign.
The problem is, we’re both afraid of something deep, but life has a way of bringing you to your knees. Sometimes love is the only thing that can bring you back alive.
I messed up the first chance with my girl. I’m not letting the second one go by without a fight.
