Loneliness was the one constant in Andrew’s life. Until one girl, met by chance in a high school hallway, changed everything. Emma Burke was a mystery and all that was beautiful in this world, the only air Andrew ever wanted to breathe. She took the lonely away, and filled it with hope and color, and Andrew would do anything to keep her safe, happy and whole.

Cuts are deep.
Scars are left behind.
And revenge beckons.
When Andrew finally gets his chance, in college, five years after his first love broke him completely, he finds out old feelings don’t really disappear just because you say you hate someone. The more he tries to avenge all that he believes he lost, the more he uncovers the real story of what happened years before.
Love is wicked. But a restless heart is never satisfied beating on its own. Can Andrew and Emma make it right before it's too late, or will the ties that bind them now destroy their only chance at a future?

Andrew carries around the horror that goes with the Harper name. People in his small town just can't let go of the past. With his older brother Owen off to play basketball, he is left to deal with the wrath alone. Keeping his focus on school and finding his way out of this small town. His focus is blurred when he meets Emma and hopes for some light in his dark.
Emma is sick and tired of not being able to live life like a normal teenager. She is ecstatic about the opportunities that may come her way but it doesn't make it any easier to cope now. When she meets Andrew, she pushes those limits little by little until that one night.
The silence can be so harmful, will they be able to forgive when they understand the truth? Can there be a future for them?
Ginger does a superb job at sharing the feelings of her characters and making you feel like you are part of the story. Their inner turmoil is so deep, you wonder if there can be any happiness and love. Then she somehow manages to find the sunshine and brightness that true love can bring out in each of us. I totally enjoyed following the Harper boys on their journeys.

A sucker for a good romance, Ginger’s other passion is sports, and she
often blends the two in her stories. (She’s also a sucker for a hot
quarterback, catcher, pitcher, point guard…the list goes on.) Ginger has
been writing and editing for newspapers, magazines and blogs for more than 15 years. She has told the stories of Olympians, politicians, actors, scientists, cowboys, criminals and towns. For more on her and her work, visit her website at http://www.littlemisswrite.com.
When she's not writing, the odds are high that she's somewhere near a baseball diamond, either watching her son field pop flies like Bryce Harper or cheering on her favorite baseball team, the Arizona Diamondbacks. Ginger lives in Arizona and is married to her college sweetheart whom she met at ASU (fork 'em, Devils).
