To appreciate the sun, you have to withstand the storm.

Free-spirited, poetic Casey Loughlin has had her fair share of rain, and she always manages to see the silver lining. During her teenage years, when she met Toby Cardona, she learned everything she ever needed to learn about love and loss—all in one year.

When Toby lost Casey, everything changed for him. The once caring and endearing boy, with dreams and hopes of his own, became the cold, broken, money-hungry man he swore he’d never be. Now, with Casey back in his life, it’s up to her to show Toby that the second time around, love can still hurt, but it’s worth every painful prick. Will Toby weather the storm, and embrace a second chance, with the woman he’s always loved?

Excerpt #1
As I look at her face, shielded by her sunglasses, I try to recall how I know her. Taking a deep breath, I nod my head and give my best smile. She’s breathing even harder, which in turn, makes me hard. Her chest and face flush a little, and I wonder if she’s as flush in other areas. But who the hell is she?

I won’t lie, I’ve fucked a lot of girls, but I don’t recognize her. Only a few people call me Toby; maybe we went to college together. While trying to figure out who she is, I can’t help myself, my eyes roam all over her. She turns a little, giving me a better view, and I twitch a little. Fuck me. She’s curvy, and her breasts are plentiful. I’m lost on her body, and would love to reacquaint myself with her. She shifts and starts to get up and, turning slightly, I see her round ass come into view. She’s wearing short jean shorts that are slightly riding up. The thought of rubbing my hands all over her backside flashes before me. I bet you she would fill them up.

She’s now standing, with her arms folded across her chest, which only pushes her breasts up higher. Plus, the plain tank top she’s wearing has inched up, exposing her smooth skin. The view of her standing up isn’t helping things below my waist. I’d like to lick her all over.

But that thought is distracted by her hostile body language. My eyes roam up her wonderfully-toned legs, and I notice she’s not as tall as I thought. What I would give to have her legs wrapped around my waist, sinking myself into her.

Jesus, I have to pull myself together.

I should’ve brought someone with me to control me leering all over this girl like a pervert. Maybe I can convince her to come over for a quick lay. Isn’t that what summer vacations are about? Bang it and leave it.

She has to be standing about close to five-foot-six, fitting perfectly in my arms. I’m guessing from the flush, I could turn that scowl into a moan with one kiss. Her lips are pouty and swollen. I wish I could recognize how I know her. Clearly, from her perspective, she knows who I am. I tilt my head.

“Hi, luscious. How about you come home with me? I’d love to get my hands on your beautiful body.” I give her my flirtatious smile. Taking a few steps forward, I lean into her. “I would make you flush everywhere, and have you moan my name.” Her breathing becomes labored, and something about this is familiar. I shake my head to release the unnerving feelings, and I smile, moving in to put an arm around her. Her arms raise as if she’s about to wrap them around my neck, but she swings back and slaps me across the face.

Spending the entire summer with my father wasn’t in my plans. I hated him. I was angry and resentful, and it made me feel out of control.

Until I met her.

Casey is carefree. She lives life to the fullest, without regrets, and to a guy like me, she was hope. We only had the summer, and I knew better than to get wrapped up with her, but I couldn’t help it.

And now? Now, I don’t know how to let her go.

I’d never been in love. At fifteen, my life was filled with books and family expectations. Love was not something I had time for. 

And then, he saved me.

Toby is a boy from California, so you would think he’d be easygoing, but he isn’t. He’s the definition of self-control; everything has to be “just so.”

But when we’re together, living each day with reckless abandon, I realize that life is so much more than fairytales within the pages. 

I’m pretty sure he’s my soulmate. But what good can possibly come from falling so hard when you’re this young? How can this ever work?

A promise. That’s all we have to hold on to. One. Simple. Promise.

***This novel contains adult/mature young adult situations. It is only suitable for ages 17+ due to language and sexual situations.
