Her Last Hope
One phone call.
That was all it took for my life to careen on a downward spiral into darkness.
I was suddenly drowning and unable to catch my breath to take back control. I'd lost so much that I didn't have the strength to take care of the one thing that mattered more than anything in the world; my sister, Riley.
There was only one person that I knew could help me survive, and that was Gage Maddox. I had been deeply and irrevocably in love with Gage, my best friend, for a long time, and I'd been there for him in his darkest hours.
It was his turn to be there for me.
The only thing standing in my way was his father; an overly controlling politician now running to be President. The man was doing everything in his power to push me out and replace me with a woman who was the complete opposite of me; a woman I despised.
Little did I know that all I had to do was have hope.
Sometimes, though, no matter how much you try, you can't keep your head above water forever.
