Beneath the Shine
by Lisa Sorbe
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Series: Prairie Tales; Book 3 (Standalone)
Thirty-year-old Betsy Kline knows what holds her back. Knows she is the way she is and guards herself the way she does. It took her years, but she finally has the good common sense to know that what happened back then wasn't her fault. But knowing isn't enough to stanch the flow of memories that eat away at her dreams like toxic sludge. Nor is it enough to stop the self-loathing that always finds its way in, creeping-creeping-creeping, tainting every decision she makes.
But life isn't all bad. She works for a boss she doesn't despise, has a picture-perfect boyfriend (on the outside, at least), and has the sort of friends her lonely younger self only ever dreamed of having.
Like Adair McTaggart. Now there's a best friend if there ever was one. And the fact that he's a hunk with a sexy Scottish lilt doesn't hurt, either.
Or maybe it does, because lately Betsy can't stop fantasizing about him. Can't keep her heart from stuttering a pathetic little beat in her chest whenever she so much as thinks about him. And when Life throws them together as temporary roommates, those feelings only intensify. Which is the worst thing ever, because he's too good for her. Sure, she can keep him as a friend. But what would she do if she lost him as a lover?
When you've felt wrong for so long, is it possible to ever feel right? And how do you heal the wounds you can't see?
