The sequel to Hell and a Hard Place will release November 8th!
I thought once I moved to North Carolina to be with FC, everything would easier. Better. Instead, my anxiety is out of control, FC's past haunts us both, and being in a relationship with him isn't as seamless as I thought it would be. But my soul constantly reminds me that FC and I are meant to be together and I don't plan to give up on us. It took fourteen years for us to be together; I'm not about to let anything tear us apart.
I'm still a guy with problems. Admittedly, better problems than those I had in the past. Idaline is here and we're adjusting to our new life together with my son, Sawyer. Nothing ever comes easy for me, so it's no surprise things aren't going as smoothly as they ought to. That's not the worst thing, though. My nightmare has returned, threatening to eliminate my precious light and swallow me whole with darkness. I've come so far and I'm not planning to go back. Unfortunately, like most things in my life, things will get worse before they get better.
This very special book is the first in the Heaven and Hell Duet. It will release October 11, 2018.
What's a girl to do when she's in love with her best friend but she can't have him? Well, I pretend I'm not. I keep my best friend, FC, close and keep my life moving forward. I work. I date. I see my therapist for my mental health issues. But everything always leads back to FC, no matter what I do. The distance between us, FC's secrets, and our own relationships keep us apart while bringing us closer together.
I'm a guy with loads of problems. Where do I even begin? I'm an on-again off-again smoker. I'm an alcoholic. I have a best friend of twelve years who I can't live without, and I only recently met Idaline in person when she let me escape to her house one night. Oh, and did I mention I have an abusive girlfriend? That every day winds up being worse than that last? I'm stuck between hell and a hard place with the dimmest of lights at the end of the tunnel. And that light might not even be there tomorrow. Because things will get worse before they get better.
