Only You is a STANDALONE novel in the Second Chances Series.
I spent my life searching for love, but Evan was right there all along. As gorgeous on the inside as he was on the outside, I never had to wonder if he loved me. He showed me with every glance, every sweet touch, every scorching kiss.
I wanted nothing more than to give him my forever—until I found out I may not have one.
Paige was the girl of my dreams. So beautiful in every way; no one would ever compare. I feared she would never be mine, and then she became my everything. I wanted to be with her for the rest of my life.
I wanted her to be my forever. But love may not be enough.
Why do I have to say good-bye to the love of my life? How can I let you go—when it’s always been only you?
PLEASE NOTE: Only You is a Contemporary Romance with intense language and sexual situations meant for readers 18 and up.
Paige has never had much luck with men in her life. She seems to always choose the wrong ones. Until Evan Jacobs. Evan is an old family friend and best friend to her cousin, Jack. He’s back in town to help Jack with his flooring business. Evan has always wanted Paige, but the timing was always off. Until now. As Paige and Evan reignite their friendship, other feelings come to the surface. Sometimes the love you have been searching for has been there all along.
“You’re all mine. I waited long enough for you.”
The love between Paige and Evan blossomed into something beautiful. They have loved before. But never like this. Never this deeply. Someone has never meant this much. You watch two souls awaken over time. Then tragedy strikes and rocks them to their core. Can their relationship survive this? But despite that they both love relentlessly. Wholeheartedly. And even when a truth comes to light, their love is determined to endure and win until Paige makes a decision.
“I don’t remember when she went from the girl of my dreams to the love of my life, but now she was as essential as the air in my lungs and the blood in my veins.”
Evan Jacobs. Every man should strive to be like him. His heart and soul is so pure, so good. He loves through the unthinkable. Through the inevitable. As Paige pushes him away, he loves harder. He pushes harder, for his love knows no boundaries. There is no obstacle his love cannot overcome.
“Does your heartbeat still say Daisy?”
“It’ll say ‘Daisy’ until it stops beating.”
This story also resonated on a deeply personal level for me. The author masterfully crafted her story in a way to allow the reader to feel every single emotion. To experience the struggles that Evan and Paige faced as individuals as well as a couple. To understand their issues, concerns, and the pain these two go through. How choices and decisions, no matter the consequences, are made in the best interest of those we love the most. I loved how real this story felt. The emotions jumped off of the pages. The author truly poured her heart into this and it was felt by every single word of the story. Her poise. Her voice. This story was simply stunning as it was beautiful.
“You’re my heartbeat, my lifeline, my Daisy. You’re all the beauty in my life.”
Only You is an poignant and emotional story about what happens when love is threatened. What happens when you are faced with news that changes everything? You fight for your love. You love harder. As Evan and Paige did. Their story is inspiring. It gives hope. Their love never wavered. Never gave up. What a privilege to read a love story like theirs. I am so excited for what’s to come from this author.
