Delilah Sage was my comfort within all the pain.
Offering open arms when I needed an escape.
The only one trusted to be there for me.
But our dreams were doomed from the start.
And I left her clinging to false hope.
Regret has plagued me for years.
The memories of Delilah refuse to fade.
Each second of every day, I want to claim her as mine.
But I won’t ruin her life.
And she’s better off without me.
When a job lands me in town, I plan to keep my distance.
My scars are mine alone.
Dredging up the past will only cause deeper damage.
But Delilah has always been my weakness.
And resisting her isn’t an option.
After all, there’s far too much for us to miss.
“Why are you being like this?” I ask softly.
His voice is even more flat when he says, “Not sure what you mean. This is me.”
“You’re acting so detached and strange. This isn’t like you.”
“Well, you don’t know me anymore.”
That response brings fury and betrayal roaring to the surface again. “And whose fault is that, Zeke?” I grab a nearby mug with the intention of throwing it at his head. He’s giving me worse mood swings than Aunt Flo.
“We both know the answer. Let’s not play guessing games.”
“You’re ridiculous. I don’t understand you at all,” I say.
“A lot happens in five years. You’re not the only one who’s changed.” He gestures around the store.
“What is that supposed to mean? Are you upset about my career choice?”
“Nah, that isn’t it.”
“What then? Let’s stop dancing around. You came here for a reason,” I point out.
A flush races up his neck, painting the stubbled skin an angry red. “All of this is proof you never needed me. Not like I fucking depend on you.”

Zeke and Delilah were friends as children, but their relationship and they fell in love and were high school sweethearts. Zeke needed to leave town but he promised Delilah that it was only temporary and that he would be back but that was five years ago, and she hasn’t heard from him since.
Delilah has moved on with her life and started her own business but she has never forgotten Zeke or been able to let anyone close enough to hurt her again. Zeke has now returned to town to complete the construction project that he is part of and will this be their second chance at love or is Delilah destined to be left with a broken heart for the second time?
the construction crew that he’s a part of is heading to Garden Grove for a six-month project, forcing him to face his issues and the girl he left behind.
I enjoyed both these characters. Zeke has been beaten down by his past and feels that Delilah deserves better than him but over time Delilah is able to get him to see himself as she sees him. This is my first book by this author, but I would definitely read her future books.
