Jess left her hometown heartbroken, but set on a path to make her life better in big-city Sydney. She’s not quite sure what brought her back now that she has her life together, but running into Trig Sinclair seemed like a fate almost worse than death. Read More
A quick novella about separated lovers meeting after four years. Jess and Boyd obviously bonded together as abused children, but Jess left her hometown to become a physiotherapist, and he pursued a successful career as a Motocross rider. Reuniting at a Christmas party, it's as though the years melt away. These two are meant for each other, siiigh.
This is a great story about past lovers and friends in a small town s great read Boyd and Jess have been though so much together growing up and now that both of them have improved their lives they are back together :)
This felt rather disjointed to me at times
