Book DescriptionWhat good is running AWAY when you only end up lost? Cassandra Pierce had her whole "perfect" life planned out by her parents. One night of pure weakness and lust has her running away from it all and seeking refuge in Alamosa with her best friend. But it seems life has other plans for her when she finds herself lost in the small town of Keaton. Jason Bradley is a charming country guy.
He lives a simple life that’s nothing like what Cassandra is used to. A single moment in life changed everything he thought he once knew, leaving him with a broken heart and an unplanned future. What happens in Keaton is nothing Cassandra or her heart could have ever prepared for. The instant connection she shares with Jason is no secret, but what they're keeping hidden from one another is. Will these two be able to find a way to trust each other or will their secrets tear them apart?
“Alright.” He raised his brow as he walked over to the nightstand, writing
something on the notepad. “Here’s my cell number, call me if you need
anything. I only live about ten minutes away. Seriously, if you need
anything, just use the motel phone.”I took the ripped piece of paper he
handed me. “Thanks.” I knew I needed it so I could talk to him about
my car, but that’s as far as it would go.“I mean it, anything,” he said as
he walked to the door, resting his hand against the frame. “Can I get you
something before I leave? Dinner?”
“No, I’m not hungry at all, but thanks for offering. I think I’m ready to get
“I’ll keep you posted about your car,” he said.
“Thanks,” I said, thankful that I would get to see him again, but feeling like
a mixed up basket case for not trusting him. I was a freaking mess.
“Goodnight Cassandra,” he said quietly before closing the door and walking
Yeah, right. Goodnight in this place was going to be hard to come by. I
locked the door after he left and walked over to the bed. I drew the covers
back and found exactly what I’d pictured... Stains. Gross. I pulled the
covers back over the bed and decided to sleep with a towel over me instead.
I walked into the filthy bathroom, quickly grabbed a towel, and ran back
to the room like a scared child. I put on a pair of yoga pants and a t-shirt
and was ready to get some rest. It had been an unusually long day between
the long drive, the accident, and the hospital. Too exhausted for continued
thinking, I let my brain off the hook and laid down on the hard mattress.
As I pulled the towel over my body, I noticed my feet were going to be
I gently laid my sore head back onto the pillow and blinked my eyes a few
times. I was right. Sweet dreams were extremely hard to come by in this
place, but I tried. I closed my eyes and fell asleep.
Based on the way I felt the next morning, I’d gotten only a few hours of
sleep at the most. Between the noises, the creaks, and the foul smell, I
didn’t know which was worse. That was, by far, the worst night’s sleep I’ve
ever had. The morning sun shone brightly through the yellowed curtains,
and I decided to give up on trying to get any more sleep.
I ripped the towel off of me and was about to put my feet on the floor and
there it was. Staring back at me as if I were invading his turf was an over
sized, nasty, grey rat. “OH MY GOD!” I screamed as I jumped up and stood
on the bed, unsure of what to do if he were to start climbing up. I let out
another loud scream as it raised itself up with its beady little eyes staring,
making it scurry off under the bed. This was even worse; now I couldn’t see
I jumped off the bed and collected my belongings faster than I even
realized I could. I threw on a jacket before making a mad dash for the door,
slamming it behind me. “Holy shit, that was gross,” I said breathlessly. I
took a moment to compose myself, and to think about what to do next. I
was not going back into that room. That was for certain.
“Are you looking for a place to stay yet?” I heard his familiar voice from
afar. I peeked over the railing, and there he was standing with his arms
crossed, wearing a sexy grin, faded jeans, and a tight white tee.
