“Hey neighbor,” Cole’s voice called over my shoulder as I was leaving my house. I looked at my watch. It was 10:15 in the morning.
“Why aren’t you at work?” I spun around to see CJ sitting next to him on the stoop working on a red ice pop. He grinned at me with a nearly toothless smile and the bottom half of his face is covered with red drool making him look like a freshly fed, tiny vampire. “Isn’t a little early for that?” I pointed to CJ’s ice pop.
“Well, good morning to you too.” He bent down scooping up CJ before descending the stairs to meet me at the sidewalk. “I would be at work today, but a couple days ago, Jaws here got booted from daycare for biting another kid.”
I gasped and leaned close to CJ. “You did?”
He responded by smiling and almost leaping out of Cole’s arms and into mine.
“Hey, no, buddy, don’t— Sorry, he’s covered in popsicle juice.”
I clutched CJ and waved him away. “It’s fine. I don’t mind. Do I, cutie?” I blew a raspberry into his neck and he squealed. I couldn’t believe how much I’d missed that little nugget. He smelled like soap and fresh strawberries.
Cole has his hands full between his career and his family but his world is about to be turned upside down when he finds out that he will now be the sole parent for his half brother CJ after his biological mother passed away. He is about to find out that isn’t the only secret she had.
Lisa is looking for a fresh start after her devastating past. Her first meeting with her neighbor Cole turns into an experience that neither will forget. When she sees that he is out of his depth with CJ she starts spending time with them and is about to realize that there is no way she can walk from either brother.
This is a story about two people who help each other heal from their pasts. Their journey is filled with emotion and angst which only made the ending that much better.
