Will be featured in the Kiss & Tell Anthology releasing Sept 6th. Iris is ready to clean up her life and start over. For real this time. No more drinking, homelessness, or failed suicide attempts. Her only viable solution is to leave her so-called friends behind and fly across the country to a place where her past can't follow her - Cheshire Bay. As she boards her only means of escape, she's gobsmacked to see her seatmate is the nerdy kid she tormented back in high school. FML. Terrified and breathless, she can only hope her visible scars have rendered her unrecognizable. Holden has put his past behind him, including those awful years in high school where he was picked on because he was smarter and younger than his peers. Grown up and filled out, he's ready to start his dream - a bright future he's had planned out for years which finally starts in forty-eight hours. However, he has to get there first. That, unfortunately, includes a six hour flight beside the girl who made his high school life a nightmare. When the plane makes an emergency landing halfway to their destination, Holden asks Iris for help in taking a new journey. With him. Maybe if they put their heads together, they can get home. Trying to redeem her wicked past, Iris begrudgingly agrees. But low on cash, and even shorter on time, they set out knowing one way or another the journey will be epic. This is a NA contemporary romance.
