Arianna ‘Ari’ Williams thought she experienced the depths of true love until the man of her dreams dismissed her with no explanation. Heartbroken and humiliated, she found herself changing the course of her life and picking up the pieces of her shattered heart. Now four years later, she has a successful career, amazing friends, and a young son with crystal blue eyes that reminds her every day of the love she imagined. Emotionally she has moved on but the wounds never healed.
Reed Matthews has it all. Playing professional football was his always his dream. Being one of the most successful wide receivers in the league comes with money, fame, and all the women he wants. Even with all his wishes coming true, he never stops thinking of the one woman that owned his soul four years ago.
A chance encounter brings Reed to the realization that Ari Williams not only hid a life changing secret from him, but also things weren’t as they seemed all those years ago. He’s determined to get her back and build their lives together.
When the truth behind their deception is revealed- friendships are tested, families are torn apart, and the one person behind it all is relentless.
Can Reed protect those he loves and build the future he dreamed of?
Ari Williams was the love of Reed Matthews life, a talented football player on the rise into the NFL, but then it all crumbled. For Ari she thought Reed was her happily ever after, until he left her and finding out she was pregnant with his child was a constant reminder of what they once had.
Four years later a chance moment has Reed realizing they have a son. He wants answers and when they come Ari and Reed quickly realize someone broke them up on purpose, but who? Trying to rebuild a relationship, get to know his son, and get ready for the next NFL season keeps Reeds plate full, but what he really wants is to find out who destroyed the best thing that has ever happened to him.
I loved this one, normally when you have a story like this with a break up and what seems like a betrayal your halfway through the book before the couple figures it out. Not this one, you know right away, Reed is a charmer and although initially Ari is supportive of Reed’s relationship with his son, she doesn’t want her heart broken again but Reed is in it to win it. I am definitely picking up more books from this talented author.

Now, meet the real me. I grew up in the south and consider myself a true “Southerner”.Most of the special locations mentioned in my books are reflections of my favorite places. Living on the Florida coast, my family spends a lot time at the beach which is where I usually can be found with a book in my hand.I started writing my Surrender Series, in the spring of 2013 and have received incredible support from the Indie community.Throughout this year, I have been privileged to meet some amazing people that I am thankful to have in my life.
