Liese is finally moving on with Frey by her side. But sometimes letting go is the hardest part, and trusting is a risk one has to take. In between her practicum and spending time with Frey whenever he is town, she fights her insecurities, and wins. Then something happens and Frey's priorities momentarily shift, making her second guess their relationship. Suddenly, going back to their former best friends status has never looked so appealing.
Frey's life has never shined so bright now that Liese is his. But there is a part of him that is shrouded by memories he'd rather have them buried where no one can touch them. Not even him. But even buried memories and people can't stay hidden for forever. What Liese doesn't know is that Frey isn't about to let go so easily, and he will throw in everything he's got to stop her from leaving him. He has waited an eternity for her. Giving her up is not an option.

There's always a happy ever after, no matter how long it takes for the characters to get there.

Her favourite form of therapy is knitting. Best. Therapy. Ever.
“You’ve been on my case about seeing the therapist. Telling me that life goes on. And I listened to you, Frey. I listened.”
God, her eyes! Why wasn’t he immune to them? She blinked the lush lashes fringing her chocolate browns and he felt the ribbon of anger he was holding on to loosen.
“You gave me hope. You were there for me. Remember what you said to me?”
He’d said a lot of things to her, some of them very inappropriate for this conversation. He sighed and shook his head.
“When life hands you lemons, don’t squeeze them into your eyes. Make lemonade. Add sugar, honey. And better yet if you manage to make orangeade. Make life sweeter. Worth living.”
He turned away from her. Was she really throwing his own words back to him? God, this hurt so damn much. Her slender, warm fingers left his and touched his cheek, and he had no choice but to lean in. He shifted around to look at her.
“I think it’s time, Frey. You’ve been avoiding this far too long.”
He hadn’t been avoiding it. He just didn’t want to relive this in front of a stupid therapist, or anyone, for that matter. Funny how pretentious he felt, when he’d all but hauled Liese to the therapist’s office. But he could handle his own loss. He’d done well so far.
“I can’t talk about Kris. Please. Don’t make me do this.”
“Frey…just because you don’t want to talk about your brother doesn’t mean those memories will just vanish. They will consume you, and eventually destroy you. Trust me. I know.”
Desperate to keep himself from curling into a heap on the floor, he grabbed her by the waist and crushed her into him, seeking her warmth against his suddenly chilled body. Immediately she returned his hug with an equally strong one. Her heart beat fast where their chests touched, skin on skin. How had this gone from the best morning ever to the worst moment, so fast?***GIVEAWAY*** 3 ebook copies of Holding On Forever (INT) a Rafflecopter giveaway
