Old boyfriend, the one who broke your heart wants you back. But you walked away--far away. Out of sight and out of mind, right? Lucy has been living her life and avoiding Cal for years. Why can't he understand that?
Has that ever happened to you? A guy won't understand why you can't go there. There are always those guys who have hurt you but once you walk away, they see you as this desirable person again. Why? Because you aren't fawning over them? Or because you protected your heart?
In Tammy Mannersly's latest book (now on Pre-Order), Lucy has walked away, heart intact for the most part. Too bad that Cal isn't convinced. And when he finds her again, he's out to prove to her that he's changed.
You can’t hide from destiny….
Callum Hawthorne is one of those lucky guys who seem to have it all. He’s a wealthy property tycoon, the CEO of his family’s company. He’s handsome, intelligent and charming and has a gorgeous new woman on his arm every week. But there’s one thing still missing – the love of his life, Lucy Spencer.
Fourteen long years ago, Lucy left for college and cut off all contact with Cal, leaving their mutual friend Madison as his only connection. That was until in his effort to save his deceased father’s beloved Gold Coast property, The Calypso, Cal contacts Insight Marketing, the best advertising firm in Melbourne, and discovers his Lucy among the team.
Successful marketing executive, Lucy Spencer had managed to avoid her ex-best friend for nearly half their lives. Fearful of trusting him, loving him and having her heart broken all over again, Lucy tries to keep her distance from him, but discovers that there is a fine line between love and hate, and maybe – just maybe – Cal could be her inescapable destiny.

Words are powerful. Two words like "I Do" or "I'm pregnant" can have a lasting impact. So can words of hate. But three little words change two people's lives all the time. "I Love You" has a way of bringing people together and setting them on a path for their future... and who knows... maybe the "I Do" or "I'm Pregnant" will follow.
Three simple words were all it took to change their lives forever.
Losing a loved one is hard. Learning to survive in their absence? That’s even harder. For Gemma Michaels, life had become difficult following her brother’s death, but the one thing that kept her afloat was the one thing she knew she shouldn’t have desired – her best friend, Ben.
He’d made a promise to her brother – to protect her, no matter what. For Ben, that had meant that she was off limits. But then she slips and tells him the three words he’s been waiting to hear.
Love happens when you least expect it.
“If you’re trying to charm my pants off of me, it isn’t going to work, Nate.”
At least, I hoped he wouldn’t succeed. Again.
On one hand, the last thing I needed was to repeat the same mistake. On the other hand? I was single, and I did have needs. Of course, Nate’s model looks certainly didn’t help to keep my mind from considering his earlier proposal.
And this is why you don’t drink around Nate, I told myself.
“Get your mind out of the gutter, Gem, geez,” he joked. I dropped my hands from his neck and shoved him gently in his chest before he grabbed my wrists, pulling me to where he stood. “I’m serious. You have convinced yourself my idiot cousin can do better than you. You seem to think that you can’t compete with the other girls, but it’s utter bullshit.”
“It’s not bullshit; it’s called accepting the reality of the situation,” I said.
“You’re so much more than those other girls, Gemma. I only wish you could see what I see,” he said. A sincere smile spread upon his lips, and he released his hold on my wrists. “Don’t let your fear keep you from trying. Sometimes the things that scare us the most are exactly what we need.”
