When Crystal met Zane five years ago, sparks flew instantly. She knew he was the one for her. Zane was everything she wanted in a man, and in a father for her daughter. But internal turmoil caused Crystal to pack up everything, including her daughter, and leave Zane and Virginia behind.
Five years later, a chance encounter causing old wound to re-open and past hurt to resurface between both. Zane’s livid and demanding answers. But will answers just be enough? When lies, obstacles and a little family drama turns their journey into a trying one, can their love smooth things over? Can Crystal learn to let go of the past, and find her Redemption? Can Zane love Crystal through her pain?

It’s him! Zane McGowan. Sitting in the front fucking row of my very important conference. My body goes rigid and my heart slams into the pit of my stomach. If I wasn’t standing in front of two hundred people right now, I would swear that this was a dream. His tall, muscular frame would be hard to miss. I stare at him completely ignoring the fact that everyone’s eyes are on me.
My God! He’s still gorgeous. Even after five years. His milky chocolate skin is as smooth and flawless as I remember. His tailored grey suit makes him look even more appealing. Big brown eyes stare back at me. But I can’t notice any shock as I gaze into them. As if he knew I’d be here. My heartbeat picks up its pace and my palms begin to sweat. I can’t believe he still makes me feel so alive.
Looking at him is like looking at everything that I’ve ever screwed up in human form. Immediately, the last eight years of my life replay in my head like flashes of light.
Regret… That’s all I feel as I stare at him. He was the love of my life. Honestly, he still is. But there can never be anything between us again. I ruined him once, I won’t do it again.
“Ms. Hunt?” The mc calls. I force my eyes to break free from him, then I look over at the mc. He glances towards the audience suggestively while gesturing for me to move closer to the podium. Hoping that I can still salvage this conference, I cleared my throat. Thank you all for coming today. I’m so grateful to be here. We are here to discuss a great environmental breakthrough. We believe that by the end of this conference, you all will have the necessary tools to help us change the environment for the better.
No matter where you live or what your financial circumstances are, you can help save this planet. YOU can be the change.
