The truth will always find its way out.
Carlene Adams' new life has been an illusion, her new-found joy just for rent. The life she craves can't really belong to a girl who's responsible for someone's death.
Her greatest fear has been realized. Nick Johnson, her second chance at love, has discovered her true identity and disappeared from her life.
She will need to find a way to move on without Nick. But the memories of their time together haunt her relentlessly. As Serendipity's Business Man of the Year, his face is everywhere—in magazines, on the television screen, behind her eyelids. Soon, her life spirals out of control and she finds herself further away from her dreams.
But Carlene is good at hiding from the past. She's done it once before. She can do it again. She can leave her hometown and begin somewhere new. But she can't move on without telling Nick the truth about the life he thinks she took. And everything that came before.
Due to sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.
Four years ago, Carlene Adams made a deadly mistake. A tragic accident derailed the future she'd hoped for, taking the life of the man she'd planned to spend forever with.
As a self-imposed penance for her solitary sin, Carlene has given up on every dream she ever had. She has committed to spend every remaining moment trying to make up for that one instance when everything changed.
Then she gets a second chance.
When Carlene meets Nick, the single kiss they share awakens the desires she shoved aside for so long. Suddenly she wants more than what she believe she deserves. Will she ever see him again? And if she does, what will that mean for her?
A thing of fate.
Leaving the life she built on regret, Carlene waits for fate to intervene. But just as she begins to believe in a fresh start, she's forced to realize a horrible truth—one with the power to send her second chance crashing before it even takes off.
Nick isn't who she thought he was. She isn't the girl he believed her to be, either. Their lives were intertwined even before they met, and if Carlene tells him the truth, she’ll risk tearing them apart—for good.
