Unrequited love. I'm sure most of us have experienced a situation where you admired someone from a distance, had a secret crush, or had a friend who was much more to you than a friend but you were afraid to reveal your true feelings and jeopardize your friendship.
Carli's story of unrequited love has a bit of a twist. She's been in love with her best friend Josh for as long as she can remember. After a terrible accident, Josh slips into a coma and Carli is left to pick up the shattered pieces. In the summer that follows the accident, Carli must find a way to cope...or the courage to move on.
For years, Carli’s story sat on my computer, patiently waiting for me to finish it. There was always a different book that begged to be worked on first, a new book to start, an old idea to flesh out... Now I’m happy to finally share Falling Awake with you, a sweet love story where the simple act of holding hands can give you a stomach full of butterflies.
This clean and wholesome story is somewhat of a departure for me. My other books have a much spicier heat level, but once in a while it’s refreshing to revisit how innocent first love can be. I enjoy reading a variety of romance genres, so it only makes sense that I write in different genres—all under the same penname. After all, variety is the spice of romance!
I hope Carli’s journey renews your faith in love and reminds you that hope, even when it seems out of reach, can save us when all seems lost.
