This is a full-length, stand-alone Blackstone Affair spin-off.
Childhood crush... Lifetime love... Never letting go...
Elaina Morrison has loved Neil McManus her whole life. She doesn't remember a time when she didn't love him. Through heartbreaking tragedy and years of separation, her love holds true...until life stomps all over her heart, shattering her perfect dream, teaching her how hard it is to let go.
Real life doesn't have anything on romantic dreams, though, as these two have learned over and over again. It sucks big time, leaving painful scars in its wake. But Neil isn't giving up. He's a soldier who has endured years of longing and sacrifice to wait for his girl. He's fought his way through battles before, and this is one he can't afford to lose, on any level.
Neil has a plan. He's going in fighting to make Elaina see what he already knows - that she will forever be his Cherry Girl.
