Courtney Will always dreamed of finding her Prince Charming and living happily ever after, like in the fairy tales she read as a child. Her dreams were shattered one fateful night when her prince turned out to be her worst nightmare. Burying herself in her job as an editor, Courtney tried to forget her past, and she lost hope of ever finding true love.
Reed Moore’s past filled his world with guilt and anger, and then a mistake in college deepened these feelings. Fearing he will one day repeat his father’s mistakes with the woman he loves, Reed has vowed to never give his heart to anyone.
Reed and Courtney have each spent years building walls to guard their hearts, so when their feelings for one another explode into something unexpected, they argue and throw hurtful words at each other in hopes of avoiding the truth.
Will Reed end up being the Prince Charming Courtney has dreamed of her entire life? Is Courtney the woman who will help Reed move past the guilt and anger, so he can embrace love?
Can their broken dreams become their happily ever after?
“Mr. Moore?” Johnny called out.
Johnny was the high school kid I’d ended up hiring last week
to help out for a bit until Layton got back from his honeymoon. Johnny was
friends with Ryan, the kid Layton had hired last summer.
I stood up and walked over to the gate. “Hey, Johnny. You
get everything done?”
He nodded and smiled. “Yes, sir. Miss Will took Tink out for
a ride a little bit ago. Should I stay and help her with the horse when she
“Nah. Courtney is a big girl. She can handle it. Thanks,
dude. I’ll see you tomorrow after church, right? Mr. Morris will be back in the
afternoon, and then you can officially meet him.”
He reached out and shook my hand. “Sounds like a plan, sir.”
He turned and headed off to his old Chevy truck, and I
headed back to the chair I had been sitting in. It was so damn hot out, and all
I wanted to do was jump in the pool, but damn
Courtney had me sneaking around,
reading this stupid book of hers. I wouldn’t dare tell her I’d bought myself a
Kindle, and I had loaded her favorite book on it. I had to know what it was
that had always made her want to read it.
It didn’t take me long before I was completely engrossed in
Nick and Alexa’s world. I thought I heard a noise, but I couldn’t pull my eyes
away from the Kindle. Nick was just about to—
“Whatcha doin’ there?” Courtney whispered into my ear,
scaring the shit out of me.
I jumped up so fast that it caused me to lose my balance. I
stumbled backward and went right into the pool, Kindle and all.
Courtney started screaming, “No! My Kindle! You asshole, you
ruined my brand-new Kindle.”
I looked up at her as she began stomping her feet with her
hands flying everywhere, and I couldn’t help but smile.
I quickly removed the smile and started getting out of the
pool. “Nice. You’re worried about a stupid-ass Kindle. No, really, I’m fine,
Courtney. I didn’t just fall into a pool where I could have possibly hurt
She stopped jumping around and looked at me. “It’s not like
you fell off a building, for
Christ’s sake. You fell into a pool…with my Kindle!”
She reached for the Kindle, and I swore she wiped a tear
away. I shook my head and then pulled my shirt up and over my head. Then, I
began unbuttoning my jeans.
“Whoa there, cowboy. Giving me a free strip show isn’t going
to make up for the fact that this is the second Kindle that has been destroyed
I pulled my jeans down, and she stopped talking while she
moved her eyes up and down my body. The moment she bit down on her lower lip
and let out a small moan, I felt my dick jump.
