Banner CH DUET

Charlotte never thought she’d be staring down the barrel of a gun when she walked into her thankless bank job. Especially one that is held by her childhood neighbor and the boy who broke her young heart, Tucker. And the last thing she expected was to become his hostage. What ensues is a story of heartbreak, recovery, passion, and prevailing through it all to save the love that still burns between them.

“Aarons takes a typical boy next door romance and turns it on its head. No flowers and sweet, swoon-worthy late night stolen kisses here. There is grit and suspense and a struggle to move forward; and Aarons does it flawlessly.” -The Read Report

We knew each other a lifetime ago. And then…
We lost childhoods. We lost opportunities. We lost love.

Because even though we’ve been brought back to each other under the worst of circumstances…
We are still. So. Damn. Lost.

Found a purpose. Found ourselves. Found love.
But then life got in the way.
Three years later and the people that we once were are nowhere to be found.
Can our love survive everything we’ve put it through?
Can we find a way back to each other…

Teaser 1


Lost – Charlotte is the good girl who has never broken any rules. She lives vicariously through the books she reads until the day that she goes to her secure yet boring job at the bank when a robbery turns her whole life upside down. It was not being the victim of a crime but rather the man who was committing the crime, her childhood friend and crush Tucker. Tucker finds himself in a downward spiral with no way out and he needs money so robbing the bank seemed like the solution, but abducting Charlotte was not part of the plan.

Found – Although Tucker may look like the same person inside he is beaten down and worn out by the turn his life has taken. He has always loved Charlotte so he did the only thing he could to protect her which was to leave but now fate has thrown them back together will this be their second chance and perhaps they can heal each other along the way?

Full of emotion this is a story about healing, love and second chances. They fell in love as teenagers and although they were separated physically when it came to their hearts they were never truly apart.
