I’ve been burned one too many times.
Fresh off a breakup with a man I was supposed to want and I have no interest in trying that again. While other people my age are graduating from college and starting their careers, I’ve been working since I was a teen and raising my son. Even with the most engaged co-parent, things have never been easy.
When Tegan Schwartz moves to town and shows his interest in me, I immediately push him away. There’s no space in my life for another man who wants me but doesn’t really love me. I’ve dealt with that since I was fourteen. No thanks. But Tegan is relentless, insisting he isn’t like the others. I’ve fallen for that before, too.
Still, he doesn’t give up and begins to weasel his way into my life. Even with the small progress, I keep him far away from my son. Until it’s clear our feelings are growing and I have to decide if I can merge my two lives.
Can I risk my heart one last time or will I lose Tegan forever?
