NOTE: This is a "New Adult" novel. Due to mature content this title is recommended for ages 17+
Synopsis: The problem with heartache is that there’s no one-size-fits-all relief package. You can go to classes; you can try to embrace change. But when you wake up at two in the morning, a smile on your face because you’ve dreamt about the could have—the should have—nothing will console you.
Because seconds later, you remember.
And remembering can rip you apart.
Kate will do anything for her family. It’s why she took the job with Lee. It’s why she’s attempting to forget her pain. But it's hard to forget, when you're desperate to hold on. Even if Lee Collins is the perfect package.
Lee will do anything for the ones he cares about. It’s why he hired Kate.
It’s why he keeps his secrets; and it’s why he cannot, will not fall in love. Not with Kate—not with anyone.
The one thing he can’t forgive.
The one thing she can’t forget.
The One Thing He Can’t Forgive
The Problem With Heartache, the second book in my Crazy in Love series, is a dual POV book, with Lee Collins, sexy lead singer of the rock band Coal, as the male half of the story. He is focused on not being able to forgive himself for something he did in his past – something he got blamed for by three people who were desperately close to him.
I chose this topic because sometimes, letting go of the past is the hardest thing to do. Maybe it’s just me, but there are things, there are regrets I have that have lingered, that I still think of from time to time today. Whether it’s the time I stole a badge from a gem store in the city (I was eleven), or the time when I was a brat to my parents, despite my father’s terminal illness, that feeling of not being able to change it, not being able to fix this stupid mistake you’ve made—it can haunt you. It can consume you. It can be all you think about, and suck up your soul.
That’s what makes Lee who he is. He’s spending his days trying to atone for his one big sin that he bares the brunt of the blame for, even if as an outsider, you can see it isn’t his fault. And sometimes the hardest person to forgive is yourself.
If you like books that are heavy on the emotion and the drama, I’d love it if you checked out The Problem With Heartache.
