Pushing You Away
Noah & Katie duet, #1
Ex-Con Duet Series
Pushing You Away is now available on all retailers!
I’ve been in love with my best friend Katie Walker for as long as I can remember. We may have shared our deepest, darkest secrets but that one I’ve kept to myself. Before I got the courage to confess my true feelings, my cousin Gabe moved to town and swept Katie off her feet.
I should’ve admitted how I felt but I couldn’t—especially once they got married.
When I caught Gabe cheating on his pregnant wife, I snapped. A deadly fight erupted and before I could comprehend what happened, I was charged with his murder and sent to prison.
The day I’m released, I go straight to Katie’s house. But after pushing her away for a decade while I was behind bars—she slams the door in my face—wanting nothing to do with me.
While she’s determined to pretend I don’t exist, this time I’m not going anywhere.
PUSHING YOU AWAY is a slow burn, angsty friends to lovers romance with lots of small-town, Southern drama. It’s book 1 in the Noah & Katie duet and must be read in order.

Noah doesn’t remember a time that he hasn’t loved his best friend Katie, but he wasn’t sure if he wanted to take the chance of destroying the best relationship he had and then it was too late. When she ended up marrying his cousin Gabe and pregnant with his son things becomes a whole lot more complicated when Noah ended up incarcerated for Gabe’s death. A decade later he is back in town trying to pick up the pieces of his life and his relationship with Katie but that is easier said than done.
When Gabe passed away Katie lost the two most important people in her life when Noah cut off all contact with her. Now that he is back in town, she isn’t about to just let him back into her life but that isn’t so easy to do when someone isn’t about to let Noah’s past stay in the past and they don’t care if others get caught in the crossfire.
Everything that Noah and Katie have faced may have changed them but not their feelings for each. Just when they start healing from the past and have hope for the future, we get a cliffhanger that leaves us wondering what the future holds for this couple.
