What exactly did I want from Roman? If he asked, what would I say?
I swallowed hard. No point in thinking that because he hadn’t asked, wouldn’t ask, and months from now would be way more interested in Manuela than he was in me. That had to be my problem tonight. It was all slipping through my hands, and I was simply unable to stop it.
Coralee Pirtle’s perfect world changed the day her boyfriend, Roman Avery, hired a girl to work at the hardware store. He says he wants to open on weekends and increase sales.
But what if that isn’t his only reason? What if he hired the girl because he’d lost interest in her?
Her doubts climbing, she decides to see if another man might do, and finds instead, through the advice of an old woman, that all she’s ever needed has been with her all along.
