Are you ready for Riley and her emotional journey?
Here’s a small excerpt:

His hazel eyes swirl with questions. “How long have you been together?”
His eyes widen. “That’s a long time to commit to someone and not marry them.”
“I think he’s crazy not to,” he murmurs.
“Can we get off this sour subject?” I ask.
He looks me dead in the eyes with an alarming shimmer of hopefulness. “Not really. This subject decides my next subject.”
I open my mouth to say something, but I have nothing. I blush maddeningly and drop my view to the black fabric of his shirt…speechless and unsure what to say.
“That was pretty direct. I’m sorry.” He leans closer to my ear when I don’t look up. “I’m sorry.”
“It’s fine,” I tell the shirt, melting at his breath on my ear.
“Can I be honest with you?”
“I’m a little heartbroken now.”
I flick my eyes to his.
“Someone who looks as exceptionally great as you within my arms reach and I find out you’re taken.”
