Kaye McDowell has spent most of her life trying to leave, or actually leaving, the tiny Maine island she grew up on. For her, Fall Island is marred by tragedy, and always will be. Even sticking around for her best friend, Andy Carrillo, doesn't make much sense anymore. She wishes they were more than friends; he doesn't.
Then, after Kaye gets her dream job as a photojournalist in Boston, Andy comes to visit. Just Andy. In her tiny studio apartment. For an entire weekend. And Kaye starts to wonder if he wishes they were more than friends, too. But even if he does, there's so much to overcome: distance, shared grief, and most of all, the fear that comes from putting a lifelong friendship on the line.
IF I STAY is a 12,000-word companion novella to the viral sensation SET ME FREE, a contemporary Gothic romance. It stands alone and has its own HEA -- no cliffhanger! -- but it does contain a lot of spoilers for SET ME FREE.
Praise for IF I STAY from Wattpad Readers:
"This made me outrageously happy!"
"Yay!!! My ship is sailing off into the sunset with fireworks goings off above it!!"
"Cute and warm, with butterflies in all the right places!"
