Sometimes the love our heart needs to heal can be found in the familiar eyes of a childhood friend...This sounds like a really gritty contemporary and that's totally what I've been into lately so needless to say, I can't wait for this one. I like that rough backdrop of the cover too, with the graffiti and all!
Julie Porter learned the hard way that trust is something which must be earned and not something to be given out lightly, those who say they love you are those who hold the power to hurt you most, and best friends can help you survive anything—until they move away.
Nick Owen knows a thing or two about a hard life. At a young age Nick learned how to take a hit and to make lemonade out of the lemons life tossed his way. Returning home after nearly two years of being away, all Nick cares about now is protecting his mom from the abusive hands of his father and catching up with his best friend—the girl who lived across the street, the girl he can’t seem to stop thinking about.
Finally reunited after two years apart, Nick and Julie are about to learn that age does nothing to protect you from life’s trials and tribulations, heartache and loss, but maybe together they’ll find a way to survive.

I live in a small town nestled in the mountains of Western North Carolina. Growing up I was always an avid reader (my mother must have spent thousands on R.L.Stine and Christopher Pike books). Writing a novel wasn't something I'd ever really given much thought about until early 2006, but I never actually put pen to paper until late 2007, after the birth of my second child.
While juggling with the everyday responsibilities that come with being an adult first off, a wife, and a stay-at-home mama to two small children... I still found some time to allow my wild imagination to run wild, something I hadn't done in years. And, I wrote a book.
