Lilly Henderson By LillyMHenderson Completed

At twenty-eight, Emma is perfectly content with her life. She loves her job as a nurse and her friends. She doesn't even mind she's still single. If only her mom would stop pushing her to finally settle down. Emma's track record isn't the best, though. After her last one-night stand throws her out of his hotel room, she swears to herself to make better choices when it comes to men from now on - stay away from them, that is.

Her resolutions are put to the test when she meets Jack, who seems like the worst candidate to give her heart to with his secretive and brooding nature, but something draws her to him.  

When their paths cross again and again, it becomes harder for Emma to stay away from Jack, even though he doesn't seem to be interested in her in the same way at all. What happened in his past makes it impossible for him to pursue anything that's close to a relationship.

But when surprising news turns Emma's world upside down, Jack is there to offer his shoulder to lean on. 

And maybe even more.
