Life can be cruel. People can be ruthless and evil. The world can be cold and uninviting. No one knows these things better than Josephine Geroux. By her own definition, she is a twenty-five-year-old "nobody with nothing," and she is content to stay that way. Growing up an orphan has made her tough and indifferent to the people around her, until she meets a strangely familiar man with a face that haunts her for reasons she can't understand.
"The premise was good BUT had potential to be great"
Navigating the world alone is all Josephine Geroux has ever known. Life-altering tragedy struck early on for her. She learned the hard way how to adapt and survive. After such chaos, maintaining a life free of complications is a priority for her. Everything changed when a man with amber eyes came through her door and claimed her heart. She fell hard in more ways than one. The pull between Jo and Damon seemed like fate bringing things full circle.
"Nice...glad we got an ending too!"
For the first time in her life, twenty-five-year-old Josephine Geroux has a future worth looking forward to. She has her beloved bookstore, she has all the comforts that money can buy, she has found the love of her life, and most importantly, she has found hope where there was none for sixteen long years. After the tragic deaths of her parents and her troubled life as an orphan, she met Damon Cole, a man who has everything to do with it all.
I used to have a great life. My little world was bright. I had no complaints. My perfectly simple life made the fall from grace that much more devastating. I plummeted from the heavenly little bubble that I shared with Jake. I fell fast and hard straight into the fiery pits of hell. The knowledge of how things used to be is a bittersweet torture that refuses me even one moment of respite. I live in a painful reverie that I can’t escape. I had it good once. That’s gone now. All of it disappeared like vapor into the ether.
