Wherever you will go-ebooklg

Brooke Willis had everything she ever wanted: a happy marriage, volunteer placement at the art gallery, and the promise of starting a family with the man of her dreams.

Saxon Reed had everything he ever thought he needed: a successful career, nice cars, expensive apartment, and more money than he knew what to do with.

After losing her husband Brooke insists on taking over his company to keep his dreams alive. Struggling in an industry she knows nothing about, Brooke turns to Saxon, her husband’s best friend and business partner, for guidance and support. Their mutual grief, and Saxon’s need to look after his best friend’s wife, creates a connection beyond just business.

Can Brooke take over the company and find a new life without saying goodbye to the past? Can Saxon protect and care for Brooke without scaring her away?

What happens when your heart doesn’t listen to your head? When lines are crossed and boundaries are pushed?

“Life goes on, whether you choose to move forward and take a chance in the unknown or stay behind, locked in the past, thinking of what could've been. I don’t want to live in the past anymore. I’m so lonely; there’s nothing for me here.”

What do you do when you whole world is destroyed by one freak accident?  Brooke Willis had it all, a loving husband, a great plan for the future and a plan for children.  Everything a woman could ever wish for in life! Her day had started out perfectly with her husband asking her to start a family and then started working on getting her pregnant with their first child.  Then on his way to work he was taken from her when a driver hit the driver’s side of his car and he was killed instantly.  All of Brooke’s dreams died that day with the love of her life, her soul mate, her best friend!  How can she go on without him?  Brooke sinks into a deep depression and is slowly fading away until three months after Nate’s death Saxon arrives on her doorsteps. From that moment on her life was change and would never be the same again. 

Saxon Reed has secrets in his past that left his soul scared and closed off to forming relationships.  The biggest secret is the feelings he has for his best friend’s wife.  They have been friends since college and he was the one that first noticed her and pointed her out to his best friend Nate.  Nate and Brooke had fallen in love and were married so Saxon did the only thing he knew to do, he distanced himself from Brooke.  He continued to work with his BFF to build the business that was Nate’s dream.  When Nate was taken so abruptly from his loved ones Sax did not know how to deal with the loss.  Nate had written a will and told Saxon about it and how he wanted to protect and take care of Brooke.  Saxon knew that if anything ever happened he would always take care of Brooke.

Will Saxon be able to move forward and forget his past?  Can he keep Brooke safe and protect her from those that want to destroy her?  Are they both capable of experiencing love again?

Read an Excerpt!
Gripping her hips so tightly she can no longer shake and shimmy them, I try to gain some kind of control over my anger. What the fuck is she doing?

As I step up behind her and hold her tight against me, the douche touching her releases his hands and steps back. Good idea, buddy. Brooke hasn’t turned to look at who it is, but I know from the way her body relaxed into mine that she knows it’s me.

“What are you doing, Brooke?” I say into her ear, trying to keep all traces of anger out of my voice. If she was mine, if I wasn’t so scared of pushing her away, I would have picked her up and thrown her over my shoulder and carried her the fuck out of here.

She turns her head slightly towards me. “I told you it was girls’ night tonight,” she says defensively.

“You know what I mean.” I grip her hips harder and pull her against me tighter as my control begins to snap.

She turns around in my arms and steps out of my embrace. “Saxon …” She’s frustrated and becoming flustered as she tries to find her words.

I don’t think about it as I grab her hand and begin to pull her off the dance floor. I don’t miss the curious looks from the two blondes, the confusion on Rachel’s face, or the smirk on Harper’s.

I couldn’t care what any of them think or if any of them find out. I actually wish they would. I want everyone to know Brooke is mine.

I don’t care how she feels about what we are doing, what she thinks it is—she is mine. I wanted to stake my claim on that dance floor. Tell that douche he better not put his hands on what’s mine and then take Brooke into my arms and show everyone exactly who she belongs to.

Of course I couldn’t do anything because I live in a constant state of panic, watching everything I say and do, living in the fear of scaring her off.
