Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance


When all hope for moving on from a life filled with pain and abuse was gone, Emily Watson closed herself off to the world, packed her bags, and moved across the country in search of a new life. What she found was a career she adored and friends she loved. It wasn’t a full and complete life, but it was definitely better than what she knew before.

When all hope for being loved and accepted for who he was instead of what he had was gone, Taylor Carter decided that trusting people outside of his family wasn’t really smart and would only lead to disappointment. With his world turned upside down, his life became about his work, and every new relationship was meaningless and superficial. He was safe and definitely content but never truly happy.

When all hope for staying awake during a long day was gone, Emily and Taylor found themselves at the same coffee cart. Little did they know then that the worst coffee they’d ever had would forever change their lives.

When hopeless people are blinded by an endless pain, when contentment and safety feel like the best options, and when love seems impossible, they may just find an exception.

“Tay . . . ” she whispered in a plea. Using the hand she had on his belly, she pushed herself away from him and skated as fast as she could towards the wooden deck.

By the time she reached it, flurries of snow were falling around her and a few tears were slipping from her eyes. She could hear his blades making their way through the ice, but she couldn’t make herself turn around to look at him. 

“Ems, if I crossed any lines here, I’m so sorry.” 

The pain in his voice nearly broke her. For the first time in their friendship, he was seriously upset, and as much as she wanted to, she couldn’t comfort him. Anger at herself and at the situation they were in heated everything inside of her. “You didn’t,” she whispered angrily. 

Taylor reached for her hand, but before he touched it Emily let out a heavy breath and continued. “You didn’t cross any lines, because we don’t have them anymore. We’re just a big, messy, blur.”

“Then talk to me, Emily.” Despite his frustration, his voice was kind and loving.

Her head bowed low and, when she spoke, her voice was extremely weak. “I don’t even know what to say. That’s why I came here. I needed to think and whenever you’re around I can’t.”


She shook her head, letting out a humorless laugh.

About The Author

Words have always been a passion of mine. I’ve always loved to read them, write them and learn them in other languages. Last year, I’ve decided to take that passion and turn it into a book, the result was Exception, my very first novel due this October.

Whenever I’m not sitting behind my computer, I’m either enjoying the company of my dear hubby, Alex, and our four four-legged babies or reading. I’m a firm believer in long hand written letters, love of any kind and good stories.
