Six Years Later

Grey Desmond is the lead stylist and co-owner of a reputable salon with the perfect fiancé and a beautiful wedding in her future.
But one chance meeting between Grey and Stefan is all that is needed to reawaken the feelings from the past.
She tries to avoid him but he won’t let her. Losing Grey was Stefan’s biggest mistake and he won’t stop until he wins her back. But Grey doesn’t know if she could ever trust him again. Leaving her heart to decide between the perfect future…or the past she never let go.
Stefan’s ever-changing, ever-incredible blue eyes held mine as if he refused to let go.
“From the second you ran into me I had no choice but to go back for you.” I focused my eyes on the wall directly next to his beautiful face. There was no way I could watch him and keep hold of my self-control.
“Look at me, Greyson Rose.” I did. I couldn’t resist him no matter how much I knew I should.
“I will always come back for you.”
Those words. They were ones I needed to hear many years ago, but they never came. In the moment, when I needed my husband, my best friend, he wasn’t there. He didn’t come back for me—he left me alone, and that’s why we were here in this very place. I pulled my hands from his and placed them over my eyes as the waterworks began. My chest heaved and my body shook with the onslaught of memories and of moments that once were.
I felt the booth seat shift as he sat down next to me, and before I could react his arms were around me. I nearly stopped breathing at the wave of emotions that shook me to the bottom of my heart. I’ve had his hands on me, his arm around me, but nothing compared to the feeling of being surrounded by the only man who made me feel whole. The strength he held me with was one I could never forget. There was no warning in my head anymore—there was only Stefan. My arms wrapped around his shoulders, my face buried into his neck.
Breathing him in, touching him, holding him. I wasn’t over it. For the first time in six years I felt like I was alive. My lungs filled with the fresh sweet scent of the man that would always have my heart.
It didn’t matter that we were in a crowded restaurant. All that truly mattered was that he was here and I was here. I knew it was going to kill me when it was time to let go, but for now I was going to hold on as if my life depended on it. Stefan’s hand pressed against the back of my head.
“Trust me, Greyson Rose. I’m not going anywhere this time.”
