Elaina Lucia (elainalucia) | 4 comments She broke up with him while he was in college.
He thought because she no longer loved him.
In actuality, she was beaten and raped by her stepfather while her mother was in the hospital. (Possibly) dying of cancer.
Heroine is deathly afraid of thunder storms (heavy recurring theme in the book).
A doctor/family friend type person saved her life. I think they called him Doc. She had a choice to keep her baby or possibly die(?)and she chose the kid. She refused to tell the hero about the baby because college was his future.
The couple meets again when Hero comes to town and finds out (or came to town because of) their child.
Hero is very angry at her at first. They make a deal that he gets to know their son. He is quite (understandably) cold about not knowing about his child. She's obviously still in love with him.
(Time passes)They have a fight.
She goes home (really to hide because a Thunder Storm is coming). I recall the kid saying something about her being terrified of storms. That's when DOC reveals what happened to her.
The hero vividly remembers her loving storms and sitting outside snuggled up with him to watch him. He leaves the kid with ??? before going to her home. He finds her (hiding?) in the midst of a PTSD (not sure they even called it that then) moment.. he helps her calm down."

When did you read this Elaina? Was it old or new then? A romance, literary, thriller? Any memory of the cover?
