The hardest thing I’d ever done was let go of the one person who needed me most...
Jake Spencer was the kindest, truest, strongest man I’d ever met. He also had the worst childhood I could imagine. All he needed was a chance and someone to love him. I gave him everything I could, but it wasn’t enough.
It took me a long time to accept that there was nothing else I could have done. That disappointment has followed me ever since. I built a career and a supportive network of friends, but kept love out of my life.
I was on the rise and thought nothing could slow me down, until my greatest failure came back to haunt me. Jake came home, stronger and wiser. Whatever it was he needed to overcome his past, he’d found it. Somewhere, or with someone, else. I hated that it wasn’t with me.
His sudden reappearance has thrown my life into a tailspin. He’s back to claim the life he wanted, to be the man he says I deserved, but I’m not the girl I used to be. Professionally I am powerful and moving up. Personally I’m broken and uncertain, but mainly...I’m angry. Falling in love with Jake was the easiest thing I’d ever done, losing him was the hardest, and giving him a second chance might just cost me everything.
