Make it Last by B. Love
Can someone be capable of protecting their partners heart when they’ve recklessly mishandled their own?
Twenty-nine-year-old Vanity “Sunflower” Meadows has taken to a life of solitude. Life and love have both dealt her a bad hand. A hand that has turned the bets she’s placed on both into a debt she has been unable to pay. When it seems as if she’s drowning in her alcohol induced sorrow, she meets Tokyo, and he shows her that her life isn’t as bad as it seems.
Tokyo “Toke” Key isn’t living the life he thought he would be at thirty-one-years-old. While his career and business is thriving, every other area of his life has become stagnant. A prominent loss to his family rocks them all to their core, and Tokyo is left wondering to whom does forever really last these days. He’s had absolutely no desire to find out, until he crosses paths with Sunflower.
Two hearts that have been shattered, now half-healed and still bruised, collide when they need love most. But just as they are drawn to each other like magnets emotionally, they are repelled by each other and repulsed by the thought of love mentally. Will they be able to make it last forever this time around, or will this too be an added excuse to not see love through?
Match-Made Christmas by Daria White
From the outside, Adrienne has everything any woman could want. However, she knows what real happiness is, and it isn’t having a good job and a condominium. Traveling home to her small Texas town for a friend’s wedding, Adrienne is hit from all sides with the happiness she hasn’t found for herself—her long-married parents, her joyful sister and brother-in-law and their two children, and her childhood friends. They all think she has it all… all except one.
Trace has been a nemesis since grade school. Always ready with a quip and happy to squabble over even the smallest thing, Adrienne dreaded seeing him when she came back for the wedding. So why does it seem like Trace is the only one who really knows her, who sees her for who she is?
Losing his parents to a plane crash and his uncle to cancer, Trace is not too keen on losing anyone else close to him. If only she didn’t skip town after graduation. He didn’t have time to tell her how he felt. There was a reason behind all his teasing. He loved their banters. It meant spending time with her. He could hear her voice. Now she’s back, but her leaving is inevitable. He’d have to risk his heart by asking her to stay. He can’t take another loss.
Working to save their friends’ wedding brings Adrienne and Trace together. The clock is ticking, and it’s the worst blizzard Lakeshore, Texas has seen in years. Will these two match their friends or end up matched themselves?
