She turned those pretty grey-blue eyes on me, and it was that moment that I set my sights on her. It didn’t take me long to figure out that she was there alone, even though every time she’d make eye contact with me, she’d glance over her shoulder like she was waiting for someone. It wasn’t my style to gawk, but she was damn cute.
I’ll never forget my first conversation with her either. My brothers and I had decided to move the party from the bar to my hotel room. Things got loud, and before I knew it she was standing on the other side of my door. I was even more surprised to find her wearing nothing but a short t-shirt. Only she wasn’t here to join the party, instead she was raging with anger at the fact we’d kept her up half the night.
As she walked away from me, pulling her t-shirt down to cover herself it was then I decided I was determined to show this uptight but gorgeous woman how to have a little fun. What started out as a fling for me, quickly grows into something more. As vacation ends, we agree to keep seeing one another, but soon I find her pushing me away. Scars from her past have her terrified of the future, and I fear our love will be over before it even begins. I just need to figure out how to convince her that we are worth fighting for.

I knew things had been strained between Hope and me. So, when she suggested going away for our 10th wedding anniversary I couldn’t say no. She’d planned for weeks and after a couple of hours together we were just beginning to get intimate. That was when my phone began blowing up. There was an emergency with two of my clients and I had no choice but to put an end to our getaway. I figured she would understand, she always understands, but it didn’t hit me just how far we’d fallen until I saw the disappointment line her face.
I offered to take her with me, that we’d celebrate our anniversary together there, but she refused. Instead, as soon as the wheels of the plane touched the ground, I found a text message from her accusing me of having an affair. Now doubts, fears and uncertainties of the past resurface while I rush back home to save what is left of my crumbling family and repair the rocky ground we are treading.

“Listen Chase, you know I adore you and you know I need you. Historically, you always come through for me.” She swallowed hard while I listened. “It’s no secret that I want a baby, the semi old fashioned way.”
I nodded not really believing what I was hearing.
“I want you to do it.”
“You want my swimmers?”
“Yes, through natural injection.”
