GOODREADS - http://tiny.cc/1l150w


Growing up in small town Belcrest, Maddy Jennings thought she was destined to be with her childhood love Trent Basso. Their friendship blossomed into love as they weaved in and out of each other’s lives, from school aged to young adulthood. During her complicated path with Trent, another love interest seems to be her constant. The problem is the other love interest is Trent’s older brother. Trent’s brother is bound to keep a promise to him even if it means keeping his distance from Maddy, but it doesn’t stop him from being a friend she can count on.

When Maddy returns to her hometown after two years for her brother’s wedding, she will have to face not only Trent but his brother as well. As the two Basso brothers fight to win her heart, she struggles to forgive her mom and accept her apology, in order to mend their relationship?

She must decide to either forfeit her happiness or tear a family apart.



Michelle Lynn has always been a reader, but her passion has become a full-blown addiction since her husband bought her a Kindle for Mother's Day. She's pretty sure that he regrets this on a regular basis. Especially when she has it propped up next to the stove while she cooks, which often results in a burnt dinner. Or when he loses sleep because the glow from the screen wakes him up when he rolls over at three in the morning. He does agree, however, that she uses this gift more than any other he has ever gotten her. She joking counters that, because of some of the steamy novels she reads, he also benefits more from this gift than any other he has gotten her. ;)

Michelle moved around the Midwest most of her life, transferring from school to school before settling down in the outskirts of Chicago ten years ago, where she now resides with her husband and two kids. She developed a love of reading at a young age, which helped lay the foundation for her passion to write. With the encouragement of her family, she finally sat down and wrote one of the many stories that have been floating around in her head. When she isn’t reading or writing, she can be found playing with her kids, talking to her mom on the phone, or hanging out with her family and friends. But after chasing around twin preschoolers all day, she always cherishes her relaxation time after putting the kids to bed.

Excerpt #1
“You are my brother’s girl.  If he can’t be here, then I will take care of you.”  He starts looking around on my dresser.
“Now you’re the one not in the loop.  I’m not your brother’s girl anymore,” I reveal, trying to keep the tears from streaming down.
“I heard something about that, but you’re still Trent’s girl.  Just look at those eyes.”  He points to me.
“What?”  I ask, blotting my eyes with my fingers.
“You are about two minutes away from crying over him.  I’m not asking again, Maddy.  I will wait for you outside your door.  You have five minutes.” He walks out, shutting the door behind him.
I reluctantly throw the comforter off me, getting out of bed.  I guess a shower is out of the question so I shrug on my shorts and t-shirt and slip on some flip-flops.   We are in the middle of an Indian summer so I want to make sure I am comfortable on whatever excursion Gabe is planning for me today.  I brush my hair, putting some mascara on my lashes.  I grab my ID, phone and money and open the door.
Gabe is resting against the wall, playing with his phone while girls stare him down as they walk by.  He walks me around campus, serving as my unofficial tour guide. We lick our ice cream cones from his favorite place, laughing over funny stories he tells me about each place we pass.
By the end of the day, my cheeks hurt from smiling and laughing so much.  I can't remember a day that I've had so much fun lately, and I can’t believe I have Gabe to thank.

Excerpt #2
“You have to let me go.”
“I can’t, Maddy,” he says, placing his hand on my face, wiping a tear from my eyes.
He’s inching closer to me, I knew I shouldn’t have drank so much.  I am losing my willpower and I don’t know if it’s the alcohol or him. “You have to, Trent.  I can’t live like this anymore.”
“You are mine…always.”  His lips crush into mine and the warmth spreads through my body.  His hand moves from my cheek to my neck pulling me closer, keeping me firmly against his lips.  He licks my bottom lip asking me for permission to open and, knowing that the words he just spoke are true, I oblige.  His tongue meets mine and they dance together like they always have.
