I let her slip through my fingers…
No, that’s a lie. I was reckless and pushed her away.
I was never supposed to fall for her. She was my tutor. My best friend. My fantasy. I tried to stay away. I failed.
Then we graduated and everything changed. All I needed was a step back. A moment to breathe… And by the time I came up for air, she was in the arms of another man.
Four years later, everything is different. And when I see her again, I remember why I should have never let her go in the first place. But second chances don't always come easy. Even when you're determined to get them.
It started on day one…
New school. New life. And there he was, the boy I grew up with, walking up the steps of my very first class. Except now, the boy from my memories was gone, and his place was an Adonis of a man.
It didn’t take much for me to fall for him. Even though I knew we were doomed from the start. But when you find something that perfect, you don't second guess it.
Until it ends.
Four years later, he’s back. Steamrolling through my life like he never broke my heart to begin with. Only this time, I’m older, wiser and know that second chances are the stuff of fairytales.
*A standalone contemporary romance!*
Reckless Love by J. Saman
They grew up together as satellite friends, but when Lyric looked up to see Jameson entering her college classroom, not only did she risk her true identity being outed, she risked losing her heart to the brash, “I want no-commitments,” man that stood before her.
Keeping their relationship in the “friends” zone was like walking a tightrope without a net. As they both deny falling for the other, their relationship deepens, but graduation brings career goals on two different coasts. Can their feelings survive the miles and the ambitions that stand between them? As Jameson crumbles from the pressures of a lofty startup company, he pushes away from Lyric, never realizing he is cutting his heart from his body.
Four years will pass, thousands of regrets for Jameson, a river of tears for Lyric and one shot at earning back the love of his life. Can Jameson prove he is not the manchild who walked out on the woman of his dreams?
Lyric has tasted the success of her career dreams, she is sadder, but wiser, but is she strong enough to resist Jameson coming on like a freight train? One burned, twice shy…but Fate holds their future in its hands…
J. Saman’s RECKLESS LOVE is a fresh, if painful take on risking one’s heart more than once to capture the prize. It’s a story of the coming of age of one’s heart, a twisted tale of a simple love gone wrong because of fear. It’s that fairytale romance where the handsome prince and the beautiful princess fail to find their happy ever after…the first time. Will they find it the second time around?
Ms. Saman doesn’t sugar-coat her romances. She fills them with raw emotions, flawed characters and bad judgement calls. She creates unintentional villains we can’t help but root for and heroines we can only hope are strong enough to see beyond their pride while keeping both eyes open.
Fabulous, fabulous reading! You may forget the characters can’t hear you talking to them!
