I’d been pining for her for more than a decade, and thought I’d messed up.

I went to her, faster than lightning, desperate to taste her kiss.

She offered me her trust, and I took it in my hands, desperate to hold on tight.

I was born again with her, no longer the recovering addict. No longer a mistake.

Those ghosts underestimated my love for Izzy Moffit.

She had no idea what I was willing to do, who I used to be, and what I was capable of when it came to protecting those I loved. She had no idea the lengths Iโ€™d go to to give her a happy ever after. My girl had no idea at all.
Authors’ Bios
Victoria L. James is a teenage girl stuck inside a thirty-something-year-oldโ€™s body. A Corona and nacho appreciator with a ridiculous obsession for all things Rocky Balboa, she currently lives in Yorkshire, England, with her husband and two baby boys. Having had a strong passion for words and stories going as far back as she can remember, she credits her love of literature to her Grandma Bess who taught her that you donโ€™t need a lot of money to travel to different worlds, experience new places, and live a thousand lives.
L.J. Stock has always lived in a world of her own, continuously lost in her imagination. Whether in the forests that backed up to her home in Aberdeen when she was only six years old, the unique landscape of Singapore she discovered at eight, or the rolling woodlands that rolled up to Dartmoor during her teen years, there have always been new worlds to explore.
Now an adult living in Houston, Texas, there’s more concrete in the jungle surrounding her, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t stories to tell. She now has too many. When she’s not writing, Louise can be found hanging out with her family, crazy pup, or at the computer lost in her creativity of her successful graphic design business, L.J. Designs.
The Playlist!
The Only Exception could be read as a standalone, but in order to fully understand their history and backstory, we strongly, strongly advise reading The Trouble with Izzy and/or A Fight for Ethan first, both of which are available for #FREE in Kindle Unlimited.
