What happens when the lines of love and friendship are blurred?
After discovering a heart shattering secret Elora Gerent collects the fragments of her life, and returns home in hopes of finding a way to put them all together. What she didn't expect to find was her sexy playboy neighbor Thane.
Thane has shards of his own that he's left with to reassemble. Never did he imagine that the wholesome girl next door would make him even want to try. On the Eve of his fourth deployment a hope is crushed and they part on bad terms.
When a dreaded phone call reaches Elora she realizes that the frame is aways bigger than its picture.
Will Thane and Elora remain fragments of who they are, or will they forge the shattered shards?
If I could choose any moment to instantly vaporize it would be now. Hell, I’d settle for a teleportation beam to Mars. Maybe right before death by suffocation, I would be acquainted with the god of war himself, Ares.
Just then, I felt a warm arm circle around my waist and I was pulled up next to a body carved from a slab of stone. When I turned to look, it was my neighbor. “Hey baby.” Leaning against me, he set a gallon of milk into my basket and then kissed me before I could speak. It wasn’t a quick peck on the lips; no he cradled his hands on either side of my face, pressed his lips softly against my own, nibbled on my lip and caressed my tongue with his. Wow! Ask and you shall receive. After a moment, he looked up as if oblivious to the fact that we were not alone. “Friends of yours?”
I started this book thinking I would get a few pages in and finish it the next day... The first few pages was all it took and I was hooked and didn't set it down until I was done. I couldn't! I HAD to know the outcome!! The suspense was killing me and I loved it!
Elora was engaged to her high-school boyfriend, Justin. Like every couple they had there ups and downs. After taking some needed time apart Justin proposed. Elora finds out that while they may have spent time apart, Justin didn't spend time alone. He leaves Elora hurt, embarrassed and ashamed. She decides to get away and goes to stay at her Nana's house. She feels like that will give her time away from every one. Little does she know there is a HOTTIE across the street by the name of Thane. Elora starts to notice Thane brings a different girl home every night! Elora officially runs into him at the grocery store where she runs into her ex. Elora might have felt surprised to see Justin, but she is in for a much bigger surprise.
First Elora tells us her part of the story and then we switch to Thane telling us his. Thane's story helps clear up some unanswered questions!
