Holding You - kindle ebook by Jewel E. Ann


WARNING: Holding You requires big girl panties and a change of clothes because life is unexpected, love is messy, and happily ever afters are earned.

Deep breath … I am peaceful … I am strong.

Vegan chef, Addy Brecken, has a sailboat, a Prius named Karma, and a genius IQ.

“So how was your afternoon?” I went with small talk because I honestly didn’t know what to say.
He squinted his eyes at me. “Busy, yours?”
“Oh, same old, same old. Fed some homeless people, had lunch with my friend, attended a peaceful demonstration, got thrown in jail, nothing too exciting.”
He nodded in thought. “So this is pretty much a normal day for you?”
I hitched my purse back over my shoulder then shoved my hands down into my front pockets while I looked down at my feet. “We don’t always go out to lunch, but other than that, it’s pretty typical.”

On the outside, Addy's world is one where money doesn’t matter and blow jobs are not vegan. On the inside, her world is one of ruins, a meaningless existence.

“My soul is injured. My heart is shattered but won’t stop beating. You see the person I want to be, not who I am. I don’t fear death, I fear the pieces of my heart could be further shattered and it will still be beating.”

Perception. Sometimes opposites attract and sometimes they collide in a cosmic explosion that transcends time, altering the future and the past. Quinn Cohen, business guru, extreme athlete, and Latin sex god crashes into Addy’s life in a way that can only be described as serendipity.

“She’s beautiful, delightful, elegant, exquisite, charming, divine, captivating, gorgeous, stunning, bewitching, admirable, and a million other inadequate words”

Together they discover a love that’s undeniable in the midst of their pasts that are unimaginable.

“I don’t need a paper certificate that makes it hard to leave; I need a love that makes it easy to stay.”
