The breath-taking conclusion to the New York Times and USA Today bestselling series is expected to be released August 6, 2013.
Claire Nixon is a college student with a past full of secrets and heartbreak. She was saved once by her first love, and rock star, Chris Knight. But when she encouraged Chris to leave town to pursue his dreams, both Claire and Chris didn’t realize it would be the biggest mistake of their lives.
After a devastating year apart and thousands of miles of distance between them, Claire met sexy surfer Adam Parker. With his awful jokes and profound patience, he helped Claire pick up the shattered pieces of her broken heart for the second time.
But now Chris has returned and he is willing and determined to make Claire’s dreams come true—the same way she did for him when she let him go.
With Adam’s former girlfriend in the picture, Claire finds herself torn between the new, passionate love she shares with Adam and the love and family she shares with Chris.
The neat handwriting on the outside makes me anxious. I think I saw or read somewhere that serial killers often have very messy or very neat handwriting. I don’t think my father is a serial killer, but maybe the same handwriting analysis applies to serial rapists.
My heart pounds as I slide my phone out of my pocket and dial Chris’s number. He picks up on the second ring.
He still calls me babe even though I rejected his marriage proposal. It doesn’t even bother me anymore. It really got on my nerves when he did it while I was still with Adam, but now… it just feels natural.
“Chris, I have to tell you something.”
There’s a pause as he probably tries to decide whether he wants to know what I’m about to tell him.
“Are you okay?”
“I’m fine. Well, no, not really. I…. I got a letter from my father five weeks ago and I think I may need to go to California to meet him.”
There’s a rustling noise as he moves then, “Hey! I’m gonna take this outside. I’ll be right back,” he says to someone.
“Where are you?”
“I’m with Xander and Tristan. We’re scoping out a studio in Chapel Hill.”
“I’ll let you go if you’re busy.”
“I’m never too busy for you. So, wait a minute, you got a letter from your father? The one who raped your mom?”
