In the first book of the January Cove contemporary romance series, Kyle Parker has just started his real estate investment business and is doing well. Unattached and not interested in falling in love, he dives head first into his business in the small coastal Georgia town.
Jenna Davis's life has come to a screeching halt. After making the worst decision on her life during college, she now finds herself a single mother about to lose her home over a decade later.
When these two cross paths after many years, sparks fly and Kyle puts up a brick wall to protect himself. In this sweeping romance, emotions run high as the two try to find themselves, and each other, again. If you love a modern contemporary romance, this is it!
Here's a sample:
"Kyle? Are you still with me?" Jenna asked looking at him.
"What? Oh, yeah. I was just thinking about something." Kyle didn't know how to feel. Should he kick her to the curb and laugh all the way home at the thought of her being homeless and sad? Should he scoop her up in his arms like he wanted to do? Of course not. That part of his life was long over, and he wasn't signing up for more hurt from Jenna.
"Thinking that you told me so?" she asked looking down at her lap. She'd changed so much over the years, but some things hadn't changed at all. The way her hair smelled, even from a few feet away. The way she looked down nervously when she thought someone was angry with her. He'd seen her do it with her parents many times. Even the way her voice lilted in that sweet Southern way that drew him to her in the first place.
"No. Of course not," he said, lying through his teeth.
"It's okay, Kyle. You have the right to gloat."
"Fine. You want me to gloat?" he said standing up, finally unable to hold back his words. "You left me standing there like I didn't even matter, Jenna. Like our five years together meant nothing to you. So, yes, there is a part of me that feels pretty vindicated in all of this. He might have money now, but you didn't get the benefit of that, did you?"
"I'm so sorry, Kyle. I should have handled it all better. I know that. I knew it the moment I drove away and saw your face in the rear view mirror. You didn't deserve that, and maybe that's why I'm being punished now."
