One year ago, the boy next door was captured as a prisoner of war.
The boy whose window faces mine.
The backyard buddy who bandaged up my skinned knees.
The childhood crush that kept me up at night, wondering if he’d ever be my boyfriend.
The town hero I wrote endless letters to after he shipped out.
The green-eyed charmer who promised me a kiss the day I turned eighteen.
And now, he’s home.
But he didn’t come back as the boy I once knew.
He’s a man now, one with demons I can’t comprehend.
The damaged soldier keeps telling me I’m not his anymore.
That the war took him, turned him into someone unrecognizable.
What he hasn’t considered is that it took me, too.
He swears there is nothing left between us, that his heart died overseas. But with each look through our windows, we both know his lies are just that. With each fated meeting, the truth only becomes more evident.
Everett Brock occupies the shadows now.
And as much as I try to pull him into the light, it seems the switch is permanent.
What he doesn’t realize is that I’m willing to follow him into the darkness.
HOMETOWN HEARTLESS by Carrie Aarons
Release Date: January 23
Hometown Heartless by Carrie Aarons was emotional and heartbreaking and captivating. I loved it. It was so much more than I expected. It was a story about loss, grief, hope and second chances and Everett and Kennedy were wonderful characters. Kennedy and Everett have always shared something, but never really acted on it. Then he leaves to serve his country and they begin to share so much in their writing. Then something horrible happens and Everett comes back a different man. He no longer thinks he is the man for Kennedy, but she knows otherwise. Their journey was not easy, it was poignant and angst-filled and so worth the read!
