Blurb: One huge fight changed Seth’s life forever.

Seth Murray just might be the most stubborn man on the face of this plant. He refused to move back to Pickleville because of one fight with his father. That is until he gets a call saying that his dad has passed away suddenly. The first person Seth thinks about is the one man he gave up because of his stubborn pride. Five years ago, all Seth wanted was to be with Carter. Now he doesn’t know what he wants. And Carter has his own life. One that Seth certainly didn’t see coming when he finally reconnects with the man again. One that revolves around a certain blonde haired, blue-eyed little girl that completely melts Seth’s heart the minute he meets her.

Excerpt

Seth knew Carter saw him. How could he not. Carter walked right passed him into the horse barn like Seth had been invisible. Seth followed him in and stood there for a second watching Carter go into the tack room. Seth followed him in and then closed the door after him, plunging them both into darkness.

“Open the door, Seth.”

“No.”

“Then at least turn on the light.”

“No, I like it this way.” It made the conversation they needed to have that much easier. Still scared the crap out of him though, not that he would be admitting that anytime soon to anyone.

“Seth.”

“I’ll turn on the light when you tell me what your problem is.”

“I don’t have a problem. Now, turn on the light before you trip over something.”

“Right, like you’re really worried about my wellbeing at the moment.”

“What’s that supposed to mean? I don’t want you to get hurt.”

“Well, it’s a little too late for that, now isn’t it?”

“What are you talking about?”

“I’m talking about the way you’ve been treating me. Like I have the damn plague or something.”

He heard Carter sigh. “Seth, please. Just open the door so I can do my job.”

“The sooner you tell me what your problem is, the sooner I let you out.”

“I can physically remove you from in front of that door.”

Seth narrowed his eyes. Logically, he knew Carter couldn’t see him, but he didn’t care at the moment. Seth didn’t say anything. The more he talked the more Carter wanted to argue about everything, but the real problem. Instead, he decided to wait Carter out.

Carter growled in frustration. “Fine. You want to know why I’m so fucking pissed off then I’ll tell you. You come back here and invade my life as if you never fucking left me in the first place. I needed you and you weren’t here. I couldn’t even call you, Seth. You changed your number and never told me what it was. And now you’re making my daughter need you too. You’ll just leave now, right, because I just made things harder for you. Put some emotion to it. Isn’t that what you do, leave when things get too emotional?”

Seth could feel some of that anger leave him, then. “That’s not fair, Carter. You knew where I lived. You never called me or came to visit. The road goes both ways, you know. Plus, which one of us left when things got to emotional? For years you’ve pushed me away whenever you started feeling something bigger than just like and now you’re putting that shit on me. I don’t think so.”

Blurb: Robyn Heath has made a pretty good life for himself away from Pickleville. He loves his job as a paramedic, has a best friend who he adores who also happens to be his partner at work, and he even gets laid every once in a while. Life couldn’t be better. Until the man who broke his heart comes back into town.

Caden Flynn has been gone for a long time. Five years fighting for his country has taken its toll and changed him in some fundamental ways. One thing he wants more than anything is to right the wrongs he’s caused Robyn. Robyn proves to have a very stubborn heart.

ExclusiveExcerpt

“I fucked up so hard, man,” he whispered to Brad, who still stood beside him. He watched as Jaron took Robyn’s elbow. They exchanged some words and then Jaron let Robyn go. Robyn went inside and it took everything in Caden not to follow, to make Robyn listen to him as he explained himself, even though there wasn’t a damn thing he could say without sounding like an asshole.

“Yeah, you did,” Brad said.

“He hates me, now.”

“He used to love you,” Brad pointed out.

“Well, he acts like he doesn’t even care now.”

“He cares. He’s trying not to though.” Brad looked at him, holding his gaze. “He slept in your room every time I would let him. I heard him cry on your pillow, Caden. When you stopped calling him, he would beg me to make you call him. Even after he moved with Neil and Owen, he still begged to talk to you. He would even call me specifically to ask after you until a couple years ago.”

“Why didn’t you tell me this before now?”

“My point is that you never asked about him. Not once.”

“You’re saying I didn’t care as much as he did.”

“I don’t know if you did or not. The undeniable fact is that man loved you with everything he had.”

“You’re saying I can’t fix it?”

“I don’t know if you should even try. My gut tells me you should let him go,” Brad said.

“I give up. I’m not talking to you anymore. You sound like Yoda and it’s driving me crazy. I need advice on Robyn not on how to use the force.” Caden started to fold his arms, but then winced at the pain it caused.
