~ SYNOPSIS ~
Have you ever wished for a moment that you could pretend to live the life of someone else? Escape the harsh reality that your own is anything but perfect?
Quinn had always been forced to put her own needs last. With an absent father and a mother who drowns herself daily in a bottle of Rum, there was no other option.
Jett was the distraction she needed, even if it was just for one night. A void filler, a chance for a freeing moment to allow herself to feel something other than emptiness.
He wasn’t what she expected…
Her life didn’t have room for a man like Jett.
But now it was too late, there was no turning back.
Nothing would ever be the same.

Review by: Erin
This story was amazing, though I happen to like all of her work so I might be biased. She has a way with telling a story. It might be a quick read, but is usually powerful. The way she described the relationship between Quinn and her mother was heartbreaking. Quinn just wanted a mother, not to raise one. Being the only person to look after her mother meant sacrificing her hopes and her dreams. She is reluctant to let Jett in. But when she does, magic happens. The chemistry between Jett and Quinn is electric. Jett is a very protective man, and is doubly so with Quinn. He will be her rock through it all. The love they share is truly beautiful. I am very excited for Harper’s story!
~ EXCERPT ~
It’d been two days. Two days of unanswered calls, unanswered texts. Two days of driving by her house day and night, only to find it empty. I spoke with her boss at Spencer’s, and he too said she had taken some time off.
With each day my heart sank a little more with the thought that I had thrown away the best thing that had ever happened to me. This was on me, completely. I acted like the biggest dick when I should have just talked to her.
“Hey, numb nuts, you still pouting?” Kade shouted as he exited the French doors onto the back patio.
“I need to change my locks,” I grumbled. Resting my head back against the chair, I closed my eyes, attempting to block him out.
“Don’t blame me for your massive amount of shit. I’m just here for the pool—oh, and the free beer.” He chuckled as he pulled his shirt up and over his head, then took off and jumped, cannonballing into the pool.
“Whew,” he yelled out just before hitting the water. The cool splash flowed backward, drenching the entire patio. All I could do was shake my head at the ass. He was doing everything possible to pull me from my slump. I picked up my phone and checked once again for any response only to come up empty.
“Give the girl some time. I know it’s driving you crazy, not being able to fix this, but you need to try to give her some space.”
Kade climbed out of the pool, shaking his hair, once again spraying water in every direction. Cocky son of a bitch chuckled as I jumped from my chair and stepped back.
C.A. Harms is like any other addicted reader. She enjoys happy endings and HEA love stories. She hasn't always been a lover of Romance and had once been addicted to a good Mystery. Just recently she has taken on a new liking and now is a full blown Romance novel addict.
She lives in Illinois and enjoys spending time with her husband and two children. You will always find her with her kindle or paperback in hand as it is her favorite pass time.
