In the Eyes of My Beholder
"The thing about love is that it's only in the moment. It's surreal, and it makes one blind. Love is strong enough to draw you in until you've completely lost yourself to that other person. Love is selfish enough to break you and shatter all your pieces to mend its own heart. It assures you that if you fall it will catch you, but it burns out and leaves the flames to burn you.
I have fallen in love."
Arabelle Brooks is the girl who doesn't wear her heart on her sleeve, especially not after her father abandons both her and her mother for a younger woman. After an accidental run-in with fate, Arabelle encounters the ever so mysterious and enigmatic Tristan Elleswood. She is almost instantaneously drawn to him as he is to her, but refrains from the vulnerability of opening up her heart. Despite her efforts, she soon learns that Tristan is in fact inevitable, and is soon brought into a world of love, passion, intimacy, jealousy, and hurt.
