If I Asked You to Stay: A Small-town Second Chance Romance by Brianna Remus
Johnny Moore is the one person I need to stay away from. He’s hot as sin and has a Southern accent that brings me to my knees. But he broke my heart twelve years ago and the last thing I need is for him to break it all over again. ***************** Johnny Moore was the product of alcohol and bad decisions. And me? Let’s just say that my mother’s unwanted pregnancy almost destroyed her family name and leaving me behind was the best decision she ever made. Kindred souls, Johnny and I made a pact all those years ago—never leave the other behind. But promises are meant to be broken. The memory of Johnny walking away on his eighteenth birthday will forever be burned into my heart like a brand. Nothing could have prepared me for the series of events that brought me back to Pebble Brook Falls and face-to-face with Johnny. And nothing could have prepared me for the man that was the embodiment of my weaknesses. With his towering height, Southern accent, and a smile that made me weak in the knees, I was completely helpless against him. And even though I knew he was the only person who could break my heart, the moment I laid my eyes on him after twelve years, I knew I wanted him to be my forever. The only question was, would he even want me to stay?
