To move on,
Leave the past behind,
And build a new life with Jay.

That’s all Em wanted. After everything they’d been through together, they were both overdue their ‘happily ever after’. Too bad the world doesn’t work that way. Memories last longer than dreams and Em’s fears continue to plague her both day and night, interfering with that new life she so desperately craves.

To start over,
Secure a future,
And give Em the life she deserves.

That was Jay’s plan, but the past isn’t done with them, yet. While Em still struggles to overcome the ghosts of her past, Jay is forced to come face to face with his. When the skeletons in his closet step back into the light, Jay must decide what he will do—and what he will sacrifice—to protect Em from them. 

Against all odds, Em and Jay are on the verge of having everything they’ve ever wanted. They’ve fought for it before, but is their love strong enough to endure any more heartache? The time has come for each of them to choose for themselves whether or not they will allow the past to continue to corrupt their future. And, together, they must decide, will it be . . . NOW OR NEVER?

“Do you hear that?” Mason hushed Ash’s latest retort.

“What?” Ashlyn flicked the radio off and Em’s ears perked up.

“Pull over. I hear something. Your car’s making a weird noise.”

“What weird noise?” Ash sounded panicked. That car was her baby. Not to mention, her dad had just paid to fix the thing and she swore he’d kill her dead if anything else happened to it.

“I don’t know. Just pull over and I’ll check it out.”

Mason pointed out spot after spot as Ashlyn passed them.

“Anywhere will do, Ash. Where are you going?”

“I don’t know! I’m just trying to find . . .” She made a flustered left and pulled into an alley, turning off the engine with a relieved sigh.

Mason glanced around the poorly lit, vacant dead-end street they’d ended up on before shooting Ashlyn and exasperated look. “Could you have found a sketchier spot to park?”

“You said pull over. I pulled over. Now go see what’s wrong with Harrison. And don’t come back until you fix it.”

Mason sighed and climbed out of the car. They watched from inside the warm interior as he did his best to check underneath without getting his pants dirty. He didn’t seem to be having much luck.

“Oh, for crying out loud, is he a guy or not?” Ash pulled her sweater tighter around her shoulders and got out with him. “What are you doing?”


“For what?”

“I don’t know. I’m not a mechanic.”

Em couldn’t hold it in anymore. Laughing felt like a sin—with all the bad that she’d caused, what right did she have to be happy, even for a moment?—but the two of them made it impossible not to. By the time she joined them on the sidewalk, her sides hurt. “Isn’t that in the guy book? Good with cars. Right after don’t dress up?”

“Har-har.” Mason got down on one knee and hung his head to peer underneath again.

“Christ, Mason, I want you to fix him not propose to him. Get under there.” Ash waved frantically at the car while Mason scowled and tears welled in Em’s eyes from the hilarity.

Giving in to Ashlyn’s demands, Mason laid out flat on his back and scooted underneath for a closer look. The cold air bit through the thin layers of material shielding Em from the night as they awaited his verdict. Minutes ticked by and Em was beginning to wonder if he was actually doing anything under there, or just trying not to look bad. She was starting to feel bad for teasing him when the shadows around them shifted.
