About The Book
Nobody wakes up one morning and decides that today is the day they are going to cheat on their spouse. When the opportunity presents itself, however, it ultimately becomes a choice-and that choice, whether good or bad, can have irrevocable consequences...
HERO: TALL, DARK, & TROUBLED
It was Ethan Harrington’s heart’s desire to find someone to love…and be loved back, but a dysfunctional upbringing has caused him to wear his feelings underneath a coat of armor, making the latter difficult. Disguising his loneliness behind a lopsided smile, Ethan moves to Serenity Harbor, Maine, taking a job in a clinic housed inside the city’s only hospital. Devoting his time to helping those who are less fortunate, Ethan buries himself in his work, reluctantly accepting the fact that love was not in the cards for him—that was, until the day he met Jessica. Her blue eyes and sensual touch shook the very foundation of the wall he’d built around himself, and it wasn’t long before he whisked her away to Cancun, where, on bended knee, he proposed.
Loving Jessica came easy for Ethan, yet the scars he bore on the inside surfaced from time to time, causing a gentle but steady slope in their marriage, and it was on a hot, sultry night that Jessica, feeling more distanced from Ethan than ever before, strayed.
Ethan has spent the better part of a year trying to forgive Jessica for her infidelity, but her betrayal has left him hurt beyond words. That hurt slowly begins to heal with the birth of their son, but it isn't long before he finds out the devastating secret that Jessica has been so desperately trying to keep from him.
Ethan’s life steadily begins to crumble, and his drinking—fueled by this discovery—slowly engulfs him. Unable, and unwilling, to let Jessica go, he struggles to overlook her transgressions, but it’s a feat that’s easier said than done—as the road to forgiveness is long, and steep…and paved with carnage.
