A woman’s disappearance after a domestic dispute fifteen years before has left a family torn apart and a man unable to move on with his own life. Tate Bell’s life is only satisfying when he is with Ali, but he is a broken messed up man thinking he doesn’t deserve happiness or is capable of being what she needs him to be so he keeps her at arm’s length.
Ali knew the deal when she agreed to a friends with benefits deal with Tate, but it has turned into something more for her. Tate will never give her more so she makes a tough decision that breaks both their hearts, but it rattles Tate enough to start him taking inventory of where his life is.
[quote]He loved her. So much, he felt hollow inside thinking about the days and nights stretching out in front of him. Days and nights that wouldn’t have her in them.

Tate and his two sisters witnessed their parents engage in an ugly battle of words where his dad said things that Tate can never forgive and Tate has blamed his dad for his mom’s disappearance and likely death all along even though his dad always claimed innocence of killing her. Now, if he wants anything with Ali, he needs to face it all down and make things right. Maybe even start thinking along the lines that if his dad didn’t do it, then who did?
This was a shorter piece, but it packed quite the punch. I can’t believe how long it has taken me to get around to reading Ms. Walker’s stuff. In just a few pages, the plot, the backdrop and the characters drew me right in. The romance was passionate and poignant and the suspense is promising. I look forward to what is to come though I will say that the price per page is a deterrent.
