Life’s. Little. Surprises.
The last thing seven-year-old Carrigan "Ace" Casper foresaw was an eight-year-old Heath Lovelly walking into her life the day her mother died. From that moment on, Heath sticks by her side, slowly becoming her strength, her confidant, and her entire world. What she doesn’t know is, she's his saving grace, too.
Ten years later, Ace is handed another crippling challenge that threatens everything in her almost perfect life. Only, this time, she doesn't turn to Heath, hiding the truth instead. But Heath knows Ace too well and won't back down easily. He's ready to do whatever it takes and will stay by her side until she accepts that their love is the kinda love worth fighting for.
Will he be her forever triumph or her unexpected downfall?
And an unexpected journey to falling in love.

When I see her get up to dump her trash and return her tray, I follow her. I watch her throw her head back, letting out a frustrated groan, her hands balled into fists at her sides.
“Frustrated about something, Ace?” I say, making her jump.
She turns to me, her face draining of color. She pushes her hands into the back pockets of her shorts. “Jesus, Iceman. You trying to kill me?”
I growl and close the space between us in two long strides. She takes a step back. I prowl forward, and she retreats until her back hits the wall. A slight smirk of satisfaction carves over my lips. I place my hands on either side of her face, against the wall, remembering the way I’d trapped her against the wall of her bedroom.
I don’t let any part of my body touch her, letting the closeness press against us instead.
“W-what are you d-doing?” she stammers, her chest rising and falling like she can’t breathe.
Yeah, try and get away now, sweet, sweet, Ace.
I lean down, letting my chest graze hers, and she shivers.
“Tell me, baby,” I say, making sure to keep my voice low and seductive, staring into my favorite eyes. I could easily get lost in her beautiful gray. “Why are you running away from me?” I bury my nose in the curve of her neck, where I know my hickey is hidden, and inhale deeply.
Her body arches toward me in response. I run my nose along her jaw. God, she’s so beautiful, and her smell . . . I’ve never smelled anything sweeter.
Something vibrates between us, and I push back slightly. Ace’s chest rises up and down as she breathes, taking in deep gulps, her eyes closed.
“Baby,” I say, kind of entranced by the sight of her. “Your phone’s ringing.”
Her eyes fly open and, without looking away from me, she answers her phone. “Hello?” she says, her voice sultry. “Oh, hi!” Her eyes become big and round, like they do every time she’s caught off guard. “One sec.” She covers the phone with her hand and says, “I need to take this.”
I nod. Before I can stop her, she walks briskly away and disappears around the corner. I thrust my fingers into my hair and pull at it. Leaning my back into the wall, I sigh, telling the excited parts of my body to calm the hell down.
“You can’t ignore me forever, Ace,” I say to no one in particular. “Not when I’ve finally got you.”
