I am very fortunate that I'm married to my best friend. Mark is someone that I enjoy spending time with and we do every day. We talk about so many different topics from politics to TV shows. And while I know this is strange... we don't fight and very rarely disagree about something.
Friendship can sound boring, without sparks but that's not true for my marriage, either. Nor is the relationship in BREAKING THROUGH boring!
LE Wagensveld's latest release in her Stevenson Family series, BREAKING THROUGH is out today! Available in ebook and print, BREAKING THROUGH is a friend to lover romance and features a small town couple who have known each other forever!
When one kiss forever changes their friendship, Sam and Charlotte must make a choice. Will they take a chance on love? Or remain where they’ve always been… in the friend zone?
Charlotte Baker never thought of herself as obtuse. But, when fireworks ignite between her and one of her oldest friends, the feelings are a complete surprise. Now, Charlotte can’t stop thinking of that night… or how it felt to be in Sam Stevenson’s arms. One thing is certain. She’ll never think of Sam as a brother again.
Sam Stevenson has loved Charlotte Baker for most of his life. He’s shut the feelings away and never told anyone how he feels, especially not Charlotte. But, during his brother’s wedding with drinks flowing and love in the air, Sam’s feelings get the best of him. Kissing Charlotte changes everything. Sam doesn’t know how he’ll ever see her and not touch her; talk to her and not taste her.
Now, with their friendship on rocky ground, an emergency pushes them together once more. The question is, where do they go from here?
L.E. Wagensveld draws readers in with compelling characters and weaves stories you can’t put down. Breaking Through is her latest, following up her debut BREAKING DOWN with another Stevenson sibling who doesn’t want to upset the “friend zone”.
“That was the scariest, most fucked-up moment of my life. All I could picture was you when you were small, crying because you’d seen the cat get hit on the road.”
Sam squeezed his eyes shut. He had been six and still remembered it clear as day. Dan’s voice forged on. Sam couldn’t bring himself to look across the table.
“I patted you on the head and told you life wasn’t fair, and things happened. To stop crying about it. I never told you, but I went out that night and buried the cat. Washed the blood off the road so you wouldn’t see it when you went to school the next day.”
“Why didn’t you tell me that?” Sam asked. It would have made the pain of that incident less to see that side of his father. To be given a chance to say goodbye to their pet.
“I suppose it scared me. Scared of the emotion. Your mom was crying, and you were crying, and I felt… I felt as though I’d failed you both somehow.”
“There was nothing you could have done. You were right. Life happens.”
“You were six. You needed more.”
“Yes.” There was no point in lying. “I did.”
“Part of me always wondered if that was the moment.” Dan avoided Sam’s eyes. He stared down so hard at the chunk of newspaper that Sam wouldn’t have been shocked to see it burst into flame. “I wondered if that was the pivotal moment where I fucked everything up between us.”
