We've all been there. At the end of a relationship, our heart broken, afraid to try again. But I'm here to tell you not to give up on love.
As a romance reader, the best stories come about when two people meet and sparks fly. Sometimes fate plays a hand in the match up or when we see someone we know in a different light.
No matter how broken our hearts... keep hoping and looking for love.
Suze Robinson's latest release- What Happens After This makes you want to believe in love. Her heroine is dealing with pain and hides her heart. Yet fate plays a part and love finds them....
A chance encounter with a hunky dad threatens to tear down every wall she built.
The Pacific Northwest is the best place for me to hide from my past. I’m content holding up pretenses with my heart buried deeply in darkness.
When I meet Parker Maxwell, a flirty lawyer and single dad, the new life I’ve built is tested. With his witty charm and gorgeous eyes, he steals my attention when he makes me laugh again.
But I walk away.
Fate has a different plan when he turns out to be the best man in my friend’s wedding. I can’t escape him, and he’s determined to plant himself in my life.
There’s an undeniable connection, a growing friendship, and I can’t resist his kisses any longer.
But when the secrets and mistakes from my past return, the ones I ran away from, will they be too much for Parker to take?
“Thanks for letting me know. I’ve been cooking for a while, so I can handle King Salmon.” The boy gives a shy smile and pushes his dark brown hair from his brow. He’s about to add more when a new voice cuts in. “Did you just spark up a conversation with a beautiful woman by spilling trivial facts about fish?”
I glance behind the boy and all thoughts pause in my mind so quickly I think the man fried every active brain cell I have.
He’s captured me in a goddamn tractor beam. His eyes stay on mine, and laughter dances in their blue depths. He continues to stare, and I do the same. If he’s taking an unabashed look, I’ll return the sentiment. There’s an underlying weight on his shoulders and a sadness drawn in the dark circles under his eyes, but at this moment, he takes the opportunity to smile. That’s the one sentiment I don’t return.
He pats the boy on the shoulder and continues his razzing. “You must teach me your ways.”
I laugh. It’s a small, soft chuckle. I shake my head and turn away to continue my shopping. I’ll spare the boy any further harassment from his father. I barely make it down to the other end of the fish section before the man catches up and grabs my arm to stop me.
“Wait, please. Can I at least get your name?”
The boy sneaks up behind him with a knowing look.
“Ah, no. You’re nowhere near as charming as your son.” I walk past the gorgeous man and shake the boy’s hand. “It was a pleasure to meet you.” I pause for his response.
“It was a pleasure to meet you, Ashton. I’m Aria.” He shakes my hand and laughs at my brush-off toward his father. Well, I’m almost certain Ashton is his son because they have the same eyes. There’s an endless depth to the shade of blue, like a midnight sky.
