Cindy Patterson is scared and hiding in plain sight. Looking over her shoulder has become a daily game of cat and mouse—if she just lets go and grips onto the sexy-as-sin man trying to win her heart—she might just find the happiness she deserves.
With her best friend, Dana, by her side, picking her up when she’s down and kicking her in the pants when needed she may just survive the trouble coming her way.
Their friendship will give them the anchor they need to keep Cindy from bolting when the past shows up. It’ll be the hardest fight she’s ever had to win—there is no other option.
This book is about the beautiful friendship of Cindy and Dana. Cindy has been through so much and is hiding to make sure that her life goes on. Dana is totally bada@@ and I loved her. She will do what she can to protect Cindy and help her learn and grow. Even if that means pushing her toward a hunky man that wants Cindy. But when her past comes back what will happen? Honestly, it was nice to read about a friendship that is so strong that it can't be broken. Please read about these two friends and the love that they have not only with each other but with the men who love them.
Welcome to Summers in Seaside, a small town located along the Oregon Coast and home of the Seaside Festival. This series returns in July of 2023, with brand new stories filled with sun, sand and summer adventures that will tug at your heart strings.
Barb is a Carolina girl by right and a Texan by birth. By day, she’s a desk jockey for a rural transportation company and a book lover, reading through as many books as she can. At night, though, she turns into her alter ego: a writer—cape optional, depending on her mood.
Her stories are a mix of real-life events, personal experiences, and the craziness of her own imagination and those of her best friends. And when their imaginations blend together, it can be crazy. Barb writes in multiple genres, encounters new adventures, creates new worlds, and has a fantastic time breathing life into new stories, creating something she hopes inspires anyone who reads to fall in love with them as she has.
Barb lives by one little rule: tomorrow is never guaranteed, so make sure you live each day to its fullest.
