A Second Chance
(Sequel to 'A Season of Firsts')
"Do you really think I'd be here with you unless I had no other choice?" I snap at him, my voice full of fire.
He lowers his calm blue eyes to meet mine. Always able to keep his cool. "Ditto, sweetheart."
Ana Barkley has never been a cry baby, so when her mother dies unexpectedly and her father sends her away to college, she does her best to hold onto her tough exterior. Being forced to spend time with Aiden, the English tutor she didn't ask for, is the last thing she needs.
Aiden Harper lives beneath the heavy weight of self-accusation he carries, due to a tragedy that happened years back. Then suddenly there's Ana, the girl who gets on his nerves. She confuses him and manages to irritate him with her attitude of extreme independence and indifference.
But will he look a little deeper to see that her heart is bigger than her sarcasm? And will she find that, for all his antics, he alone manages to soften her shell?
A first impression is not always the only chance you get...
