changes in the span of a heartbeat—one tiny heartbeat.
Blake and Layla have lived through disappointment and regret, only finally
finding relief through the powerful love they have for each other. A love they
intend to fight to keep.
They’ve had to forgive each other, but can they truly move forward without
facing the pain of the past?
Layla’s been avoiding the phone calls. Nine months pregnant and exhausted, she
doesn’t want the complication. But she can’t run from the truth. Whoever’s
calling was there eighteen years ago. Unlike her, he remembers the night that
changed the course of her life, and he’s ready to confess.
Blake’s preoccupied with an email, a few simple sentences sent through cyberspace
that have the capability to rob him of his sanity, his freedom, and the people
he loves most in the world. When he’s called home for a mysterious reason,
leaving Layla isn’t ideal, but hope for reconciliation with his father combined
with his brother’s secrecy ignites a curiosity he refuses to ignore.
Putting the pain behind them is no longer an option.
To get the answers they need, they must face the past and open up old wounds
that threaten to bleed them dry.
