One weakness can change everything.
Meara and Liam were friends before they could talk, in love since they could drive, and planning their future before they graduated high school. In order to start the life they’ve always dreamed of, Liam just has to finish his tour with the band.
He doesn’t want anyone else. Liam’s only ever had eyes for Meara, and he can’t wait to finally get home to her. But when his dark secret is exposed and his entire world crumbles around him, he has no choice but to let her go.
Meara would wait for him forever. She knows that Liam will always be hers, especially now that she has an unexpected surprise for him. But just when the life she’s waited for is in her grasp, she discovers something that destroys her fairytale ending.
Can two people who are destined for each other find their future together with mistakes between them? Will their love be able to repair the heartbreak and lies?
One night was all it took for everything to fall apart.
Can one moment be all that’s needed to repair it?
“If you can’t figure it out on your own, I don’t need to give you a reason.”
Still in denial, I walk toward her until her back presses against the wall. My forearms rest on either side of her head. “I do, though. You’re my world, Meara. My reason. And without you, nothing makes sense. I’m fucking empty inside. I’m not even whole anymore. I’m a fragment of the man I used to be.” I rest my forehead on hers and she closes her eyes. I lower my voice because I’m on the verge of breaking down. “I can’t eat, can’t sleep, can’t function. My heart hurts, princess. It feels like it’s being torn in two and I don’t know how much longer I can survive like this. I need to know what I did so I can fix this. Fix us. I need to know you still love me as much as I love you. I need you, Meara. Christ, I can’t fucking breathe without you.”
Her lids slowly open. Not all the way, only enough for her to glare at me. “Just because you’re a lyrical genius doesn’t mean you can talk your way out of this.”
“I’m not writing a song. I’m telling you how I feel. How you know I feel about you. How I’ve always felt about you. Please. What can I do? I’ll do anything, just talk to me. Please. Anything.” I don’t even know what I’m begging for. Her forgiveness. Her trust. Her love. Any and all of it. I’ll take whatever she gives me. I’m starved for her, and even if it’s only a crumb, if it’s from her, I’ll swallow it and ask for more.
Anna began writing when she thought the world would want to hear her sick lyrics through song. Since then, she's realized her childhood dream wasn't so far-fetched, just misguided. Now she writes romance with real emotions and happy endings. If Anna isn't writing or reading, she can be found by a space heater painting her nails and drinking a ridiculous amount of Diet Dr Pepper. She also likes to hang out with her husband and two boys. If it wasn't for them, she wouldn't ever leave the house. Anna was born in Wisconsin but now lives in the Evergreen State.
