Between You Me & Us
An ex-boyfriend. A recent tragedy. A long-distance love affair.
When Amara sees ex-boyfriend, Jake, at a wedding, she finds him as irresistible as she remembers. Yet, he’s married and off-limits, even if she’s ready to commit to a serious relationship. She resolves to keep her distance and ignore the confusion and regret raging through her, repeating two simple mantras; I’m the one who left. I must allow Jake his happiness.
However, not all is as she expects. When Amara learns the realities of Jake’s life as a recent widower, followed by an ill-conceived night spent in his bed, the situation becomes even more fraught with emotions. Unresolved feelings still burn between them, and this time, Jake won’t let her go so easily. After their awkward goodbye at the wedding, he visits with the offer of a fresh start and a chance to fix what went wrong four years ago.
Amara is falling in love with her ex-boyfriend all over again, but she senses something bigger behind Jake’s overture, a hesitation that won’t allow her all the way into his life. Is she being her usual over-analytical self, or will this man break her heart for the second time?
