I buried my body beneath the covers and curled around his warmth. With my head rested just where he’d wanted it, I closed my eyes tight and willed the tears away. Doing my best to hide the emptiness consuming me, I concentrated on breathing evenly.
“Always loved you right like this,” he confessed. “Your body so close to mine it feels like we’re the same person.”
I took deep breaths as I thought of all the reasons life was so damn unfair.
“Loved burying my face in your hair, just breathing you in.”
Those were the words most girls dreamed of hearing, and they made our love feel more solid and concrete. But hearing them now was like a slow form of torture, because they were tearing the small amount of control I had left in me to pieces.
“You were made just for me, Sawyer Cooper,” he whispered sleepily. “I truly believe that.”
I squeeze my eyes shut tighter as I curled into him closer.
“Forever my girl.”
Tears rolled along my cheeks as I did all I could to wipe them away before he noticed. I was thankful sleep had taken him over and he was oblivious to the shattering of my soul.
C.A. Harms is like any other addicted reader. She enjoys happy endings and HEA love stories. She hasn’t always been a lover of Romance and had once been addicted to a good Mystery. Just recently she has taken on a new liking and now is a full blown Romance novel addict.
She lives in Illinois and enjoys spending time with her husband and two children. You will always find her with her kindle or paperback in hand as it is her favorite pass time.
I do not know where to begin. Don’t Be Afraid by C.A. Harms was such a beautiful story and so heartbreaking. I did not want to stop reading and when anyone tried to interrupt me, I wanted to just yell “leave me alone”. This story will definitely consume you.
There is so much I want to say, but this is a story you need to read and experience. You get not one, but two amazing, perfect men. Trust me, I know how that sounds, but it is not what you think. This was one of the most beautiful stories I have read.
Sometimes you find the happiness that fills your heart. Is it perfect, no, but that is okay because life is not meant to be perfect. At the same time, life is also full of tragedies and sometimes what you love is ripped away. How do you move forward? Can you ever find that kind of happiness again?
I cannot express how much I loved this book. It had all the feels. ALL. THE. FEELS. It was emotional, heartbreaking, and heart-warming. It is a story about love, loss, and second chances. This is a must read! And trust me when I say, you will need tissues, and chocolate and wine while reading!
