THIS IS A FOLLOW UP NOVELLA TO PROMISE ME THIS.

Charlie Jennings and Jhett Hudson knew that a single moment could change everything.

It took them one song to find each other, one question to give them a chance, one kiss to fall in love, and one night to almost lose it all. But they had one thing other couples lack - pure, unconditional love - and that takes more than a moment to walk away from.

Falling in love is only the beginning. Forever is what happens next.

Excerpt

His eyes darted back and forth over mine, and the crease in his forehead faded as his boyish smirk tugged at his lips. “Kiss me,” he whispered, his face so close to mine his breath tickled my cheeks. There was no fight left in me. Without hesitation, I did as I was told.
Rolling onto my toes, I let my mouth explore his; the salty taste of our tears mixing together on both our tongues. Every emotion I kept bottled up inside during my stay in the hospital came crashing down – from hate, to love, to lust, and finally trust.
I guess that was how I knew I was wrong in thinking I loved Jhett before that moment. I thought I’d already fallen for him because I needed him around to be happy, but standing in the middle of the trashed house, I truly fell in love. I realized that you don’t love someone because you need them, you love them because you choose them. I wanted him to be a part of my happiness, and what made it even better was that he chose me, too. That was love.
Jhett’s lips left mine and he pulled his arms tighter around my waist. A soft mew of pain escaped my throat, but I refused to let him release me. My ribs were still ached, but I didn’t want the embrace to end.
“You came back.” His face nestled into my neck.
My eyes squeezed shut at his words, and my heart weighed heavy with the thought that he believed he might not ever see me again. “No,” I whispered. “I came home.”
His hands moved to the sides of my face, forcing me to look up at him, as if I could ever look away. “I love you, Charlie. More than you will ever realize.” His thumbs caressed my wet cheeks. I should’ve told him I loved him too, but my voice was completely gone from the constant crying. It didn’t matter though; he didn’t wait for my reply. He scooped me up into his arms and made his way down the hall and to our bedroom.
