Cooper Sterling has been in love with Briley Sheffield since fifth grade, when he asked her to marry him on wide-ruled paper crafted into the fold-and-tuck square.
But life isn’t that neat and tidy.
Years later, defending Briley from an attack lands Cooper in prison, powerless to protect her and unable to convince her to wait for him.
When a failed engagement opens up the possibility of a relationship with Cooper, a mysterious envelope threatens to slam shut every door in Briley’s path. Now she must choose . . . risk the stability of friendship she has with Cooper, or put everything on hold and solve the mysteries of her family secrets.
Wait For Me is book 1 of a 2-book series, but can be read as a standalone.

Her chest heaved as she tried to catch her breath, her breasts begging to be released from two tiny triangles of polka dot material. My brain didn’t register that what I was about to do might be a bad idea. Instinctively I trailed a runaway bead of water down her cheek with my thumb. My eyes locked on hers and I could feel my soul being enticed by the deep, dark pools of innocence.
When she didn’t shy away, I leaned in. Sliding one arm around her waist while the other held onto the side of the pool, I pulled her to me. Moving closer, I felt her breath as her lips parted, taking in shallow, intermittent breaths. She was nervous. Excitement raged through my veins as I closed the small space between us and felt her soft lips against mine. Her lips parted on a sigh and I took the opportunity to explore the sweet taste of her mouth fully. Our tongues mingled, teased, and taunted, playing a wicked game and making me lose all sense of reality.
Even soaked in chlorine, she was intoxicating. Moving my mouth along the line of her jaw, nipping and kissing until I reached her throat, I found a spot behind her ear that elicited a low groan. I stayed there, reveling in the way it felt to have her fingers twisting in my hair. Losing control with each of her lust-filled moans.
Her flesh pebbled with goose bumps. A gentleman would’ve asked her if she was cold and wanted to move this out of the water. But I knew better. No way in hell was I interrupting the mood, even for a second.
The most amazing feeling—one that would forever be burned to memory—was Briley’s legs wrapping around my waist. Her mouth crashed into mine hungrily and it was all I could do not to let go of the edge of the pool.
