The right path isn't always the easiest...

Londyn Bennett entered my world like a hurricane. One I was grossly unprepared for. But in the short time we've known each other, she's opened my eyes to things I never expected. She taught me about acceptance. Compassion. Love.

Because of her, I've also been forced to learn about prejudice. Cruelty. Hate.

We may come from two different worlds, but the second we met, our hearts beat as one, nothing able to sever our connection.

Or so I thought.

When the bubble we've been living in bursts, will our love be strong enough to weather the gale-force winds threatening to upend everything? Or is hate too powerful to overcome?

A wise person once told me that the right path isn't always the easy one.
I didn't realize the right path could be so treacherous.

Read an Excerpt

“What are the essential requirements for a date to be considered a date?”

I briefly tap on my bottom lip, as if deep in thought. “First and foremost, there needs to be some sort of offer and acceptance.”

She arches a single brow. “That sounds like a contract.”

“True. But you can’t classify something as a date if you just so happen to be at the same place at the same time.”

“I suppose that rules out our first encounter.”

He chuckles. “It certainly does. As much as I enjoyed that first meeting, I don’t consider that a date. More like a…very interesting plot twist.”

She barks out a laugh, the sound strange in a place where guilt is decided and freedom is erased. “A plot twist? So that’s what I am to you?”

“Perhaps.” I lean down, inhaling her comforting scent, and lower my voice. “But you’re the best kind of plot twist.”

“How so?” She edges closer, still as drawn to me as she was during our initial meeting.

“I never saw you coming, Lo.” I adjust my stance, our bodies a breath away. Electricity hums in the space between us. “The second I did, I knew I’d do whatever it took to keep you in my life. I still will.”
