What does anyone know about love at eighteen?
All I was sure of was how much I loved my daughter… and giving her away destroyed me.
Because back then the only labels I wore proved I was unwanted.
Since we met, Trig has stood by my side. A protector. A lover.
A splinter of hope that my arms won’t always be empty.
He says he loves me, and I finally have the desire to lay my secrets bare.
Except giving Trig another reason to walk away feels a lot like sacrificing our future… And I’ve already made one decision that shattered my heart.
