With The Last Goodbye releases January 24th!
ENJOY THIS EXCERPT FROM WITH THE LAST GOODBYE:
The day Maxwell Sheridan broke Josephine Faulkner’s heart was a sunny Sunday morning.
It was early.
The skies were as blue as her eyes.
The wind was cool and refreshing.
But as Max sat outside on her apartment building’s steps, he knew the beautiful day was a façade.
He felt the pain of his decision weigh heavily on him.
It made it hard for him to breathe.
His heart begged him for a change.
It pleaded with him that redemption wasn’t worth the destruction he’d ensure.
Max spent all night replaying his verbal promise to Andrea Wallace.
He was going to Boston, Massachusetts.
Not for her.
Not for her love or affection.
He was going to put away the demons.
Finally put them to rest.
Seek redemption and forgiveness for the things he had done in the past.
Reveal the truth to his two best friends and hope to God that they would someday forgive him for the awful things he had done to them.
Though he wasn’t going to claim Andrea’s love, he was going to seek her forgiveness, too.
He had pursued her when her heart wasn’t his to chase.
To believe he could have.
Andrea Wallace was never meant to be his.
He finally understood that after all this time.
Because his heart didn’t whisper her name.
To want forever.
Max stared at his hands as he waited.
He felt the end creep toward him.
He knew it was close.
The wait broke his heart even more.
He wished she was home.
He had knocked on her apartment door and waited. When he got no answer, he returned downstairs and sat on the step, waiting for her.
Then he heard it.
Faint, slow footsteps that eventually came to a stop.
Max lifted his chin to find her standing before him.
Her eyes had glazed over with tears.
She knew what he had decided.
She put him first, and Max had deemed her last.
His lip trembled at the wounded expression on her face.
It was horrible to see the one person he loved the most look at him with such pain.
He inhaled a sharp breath and whispered, “Josephine,” as he slowly got to his feet.
Max watched as she winced.
A painful wince even he felt.
Because he heard it in his voice.
The pleading for her forgiveness and understanding.
The pleading for her.
Josie covered her face with her palms and sobbed.
He felt her slowly fall out of love with him.
Unable to stop himself, he closed the distance and wrapped his arms around her.
Her pain he felt and knew.
Her pain was what he had caused.
Because he felt her heartbreak.
He felt her love for him and the devastation.
Because I chose Andrea and not her.
Josephine Faulkner was the name his heart whispered.
She was his solace.
His entire heart and being.
But he gave her up for his morality.
It was always bros before hoes—except when Josephine Faulkner got involved.
The saying had been obliterated for Maxwell Sheridan the moment he met her. His Josephine. She had become his everything without even trying. It’s too damn bad that Max broke her heart. Left her behind to seek redemption for his past mistakes. Life with Josie was perfect. He had found his La Vie En Rose … Or so he thought.
One moment outside her apartment building changed it all.
Josephine Faulkner’s world erupted with a single phone call. She became numb with a revelation, and her beliefs held no meaning the moment Maxwell Sheridan left her. Gone was the perfection she thought they had found together. All the good taken away by his decision.
But his goodbye wouldn’t destroy her.
Josie has more important things to worry about than the shattered pieces of her heart. Because not even Max can stop her from saying the one goodbye that means the very most.
The very last goodbye that will hurt her in ways Maxwell Sheridan couldn’t.
PLEASE NOTE: With The Last Goodbye is NOT a standalone novel. It is the conclusion to Maxwell and Josephine’s story, which begins in With The First Goodbye. You should read With The First Goodbye prior to reading With The Last Goodbye!
