They say you never forget your first time.
Mine was with a homeless musician who effed my brains out under a bridge.
He was my first love. And fourteen years later, I still can’t get him out of my head.
He broke all my rules.
He also broke my heart.
I watched him climb to stardom, cheering him on from afar.
But I was never a fan; just a girl in love.
Like a tornado, he spiraled, leaving a path of destruction in his wake.
But love conquers all, right? It has to. Because here I stand, ravaged and ruined, needing it to be true.
You can’t go back, but I want to. Back to the bridge. Back to when he sang only for me. Before he was famous. Before he shattered my heart.
I thought I knew everything about him.
But I could not have been more wrong.
He promised me every tomorrow. And here I am, waiting.

"It's dark, and ugly; raw and passionate. It brings pain and it brings happiness and everything in between. This love—our love—is a love that never dies."
I sometimes write reviews where I say that I love every single page of a book, but this is not one of those. Some of these pages ripped my heart out and I might need therapy to survive the thoughts that won't stop flowing through my mind, both good and bad. I feel exhausted and raw, my feelings too exposed, my heart too fragile and too big for my chest. Carian Cole...sigh. 💔
There is soooo much that happens in this story that I can't tell you about. You just have to dig in and survive it. Yes, it will blow your mind. Yes, it will break your heart. But it will also fill it too. Love is love is love and the presence of pain does not negate that love. Yes, everyone thought she was crazy for falling in love with a homeless musician that had nothing to offer her. If she had been given a choice, maybe she would have chosen not to fall. But by the time she realized it, it was too late, and he was ingrained in her soul.
I wanted to hate him for the pain he caused, over and over and over. But, like her, I love him too. He promised her every tomorrow. But this story is titled No Tomorrow, and that fact kept flashing in the back of my head as I turned every page with fear and hope. This story wrecked me, but I wouldn't change a thing about it. Just be prepared, you will need tissues.
I know this is a standalone, but there are some amazing support characters that have their own stories that I'm hoping the author decides to write. The line forms here...
I have a passion for the bad boys, those covered in tattoos, sexy smirks, ripped jeans, fast cars, motorcycles and of course, the sweet girls that try to tame them and win their hearts.
My first novel in the best-selling Ashes & Embers series, Storm, published in September of 2014. I have many books and sequels slated for this series. My new spin-off series, Devils Wolves, launched in 2016 with the best-selling novel, Torn. There are several books planned for this series as well.
Born and raised a Jersey girl, I now reside in beautiful New Hampshire with my husband and our multitude of furry pets and spend most of my time writing, reading, and vacuuming.
