“Do you feel that? That’s what you do to me.” Her eyes widen a little farther. I place her hand back in mine and rub my thumb over her wrist where I feel her heart in tune with my own. “You stole my breath as soon as you and Garret walked through the door. Now, I can only breathe whenever you are near. This between us, I know you feel it too. Is it scary? Hell yes. Is it going to be easy sailing? Probably not. Is it going to be worth it? Fuck…. baby, I’ve never been more certain of anything in my life.” - Weston Marks, Splintered Courage
Gemma Tate’s life changed forever the day she confronted an unlikely stranger. After relocating across the country, three new housemates prove to be essential friends she never knew she needed. She explores her attraction to Weston, a fourth housemate who lives across the hall. As their connection strengthens and grows they stumble down the path of first love. In a steamy new world of firsts, Gemma wonders if she will come out unscathed. When ghosts from their pasts make an unforeseen visit, their lives take a turn neither of them expected.
He found me, then he asked the impossible of me. I never expected my choices to lead me to Weston. Can I trust them to find me when I didn’t realize I was lost? I know my life will never be the same again.
I never knew beauty like her’s existed. Drawn to each other like gravity, will we stay in balance when our lives are tossed upside down? Does she really even see me, because I see her.
