LSERT | Book 3
It’s not how we make mistakes, but how we correct them that defines us…
Tucker didn’t stop my car as it drove away from his house that summer night, and the sting of rejection hasn't gone away. Over a year has gone by, and I still look for him in all the places he’d been before.
My friends are the only thing holding me together. Work is the one thing keeping my mind busy.
Until it threatens to tear me completely apart.
She drove away and my pride wouldn’t allow me to stop her. A year later, regret keeps me up at night, forcing me to replay the moment in my head. Working with the K-9’s is the only thing keeping me going.
Becoming close with the former MTF is a perk I hadn’t counted on.
When a child is kidnapped, all the hard feelings have to be put aside to save a life.
Secrets are unearthed, and this time as Karsyn threatens to break, I know I’m the one to put her back together.
LSERT | Book 4
The storm raging in the Gulf isn't the only thing brewing between these two...
Hurricane Tatum, a category five storm hell-bent on making landfall along the Alabama coast, is my opportunity, to show my friends and family the kind of man I've become.
The kid who lost his scholarship and the love is life is ready for a change. A change I'm equal parts scared will and won't come.
An EMT wasn't my first choice of careers, but it's become my calling. When the winds die down, the skies clear, and the rain stops, we're left with devastation the likes of which I've never seen.
What I come to realize is ugly destruction can be beautiful, if we can only figure out what perspective to see it.
The LSERT is a godsend, especially as us local first responders emerge from our shelters to see our town and homes destroyed. It's going to take time to rebuild.
Rebuilding is what I'm used to. After I watched my four-year-old daughter die in my arms I've done nothing but try to find a reason to live.
But I've got baggage. Memories, an ex-husband, and a fear I won't be able to save everyone.
When I meet Cutter Thompson, he reminds me rebuilding can mean letting go of fear and allowing myself to live the life I've wanted all along.
LSERT | Book 5
Moving to Laurel Springs and joining the LSERT was the best spur-of-the-moment decision I ever made. Here, out from under the expectations of my Police Chief father, I’m thriving.
I’ve found a boldness and confidence I never had in Paradise Lost.
And a woman who I can’t stop thinking about, dreaming about, and can’t seem to stay away from. Attorney Shelby Bruce knocked me for a loop and my head hasn’t stopped spinning since the night of our ‘friendmas’ Christmas party.
When there’s a physical threat to her well-being, I won’t stop at anything to protect her, even if it means losing a piece of myself in the process.
Houston was my home until the big city reached out and bit me. Laurel Springs is more my speed, and I’ve settled into life here.
A new friend group, building my practice from the ground up, and a smoking hot new love interest has my life extremely busy and full. I’m content. More content than I ever was in my old life.
That all changes when I revise a will for one of the pillars of the Laurel Springs community. Effectively, she cuts her grandson out of her fortune. When he finds out it’s not pretty.
Worse. He blames me.
But something amazing happens. Day by day, I realize the relationships I’ve built within the community and the LSERT are stronger than I ever imagined. Especially when Sullivan Baker saves not only my life, but my heart.
LSERT | Book 6
Sometimes home finds us when we aren’t looking…
Laurel Springs was nothing more than a dot on the map when I decided I needed a change from the fast pace of Atlanta.
I’m more surprised than anyone else when I look around one day and realize I have friends who have become family, a city that’s become a home, and a girl who's decided to make me believe in love.
Unlike me though, her past has followed her here.
A community that I once never thought I’d have, comes together with me to save her.
Chicago wasn’t for me. The bright lights, the embezzlement I should know nothing about, and the made man who changed everything - it all contributed to me leaving. I never felt safe there. Little Laurel Springs though? It’s everything I hoped it would be and more.
My coffee shop, A Whole Latte Love, isn’t doing well, but I’m close to turning a profit.
And Devante? Well he’s more than I ever could have asked for.
But Mario? He’s the one I didn’t count on coming back and demanding what I took…
