-Something left out, not done, or neglected.

Strong and resilient, Payton has always been able to pick up the pieces of her tragic life and move on, but not without hesitance when it came to letting others in. Until recently, she’s done it alone, but now there’s Garrett, and he wants nothing more than to be in her life. She is finally finding it easier to leave the hurt and fear behind her for good.

Harboring secrets of his own, Garrett knows it is best to stay away from Payton, but knowing and doing are two different things, and he just can’t seem to stay away from her.

An unexpected encounter brought Garrett into Payton’s life. Mutual attraction and eventually love has kept him there, but will secrets and lies prove to be too much for them both? What happens when Payton's past comes back to haunt her? Will this tear them apart forever?

“Are you okay?” Garrett sat back next to me and wrapped his arms around me. I was shaking. Maybe I was cold, or maybe it was just a release from my body—maybe some sort of relief. I’d never told anyone what I just told Garrett. I never expected anyone to care.

“The wounds can heal, but the scars will still be there, along with the memory of how they came to be, you know?” I whispered.

“This is why you have that wall built up around you.” He pulled me in closer.

I turned and looked up at Garrett and smiled. “Yeah, I guess so, but sometimes walls aren't built to keep people out ... sometimes they are built to see who is strong enough to bring them down.”

Garrett’s swollen hand caught my attention. “We should get some ice on that.” I stood up and held out my hand. We walked inside and up the stairs to my apartment. His hand was already starting to bruise, and I could see the scabs from what must have been the wall incident Lucas mentioned.

I grabbed the ice and sat next Garrett on the couch. I pulled his hand into my lap and placed the ice on it, watching as he grimaced. “You really should stop beating up signs and walls.” He laughed and leaned in, kissing me softly on the lips.

“Thank you for trusting me, Payton.” He cupped my face in his hands, kissing me again—softly.

“Hey, do you remember those kisses we shared before? The ones that can cause you to forget where you are or what you were doing? The kind you don't want to end?” I watched him nod and smile. “May I have another one, please?”

“What kind of guy would I be to refuse you that?”
