Publisher Description


It was only supposed to be a one night stand at a wedding. 
I was supposed to have fun and move on. 
But she infused my life with light and laughter. 
Now I can't breathe at the thought of her ever being out of my life. 
Being apart from her suffocates me.
We agreed to stay together, until we didn't make each other happy.
I wasn't afraid of and, I was afraid of but. But what if I'm not enough for her to stay?


I met this guy I really wanted to kiss.
I thought he was going to be just a crush who became my dream boy. 
A perfect, delusional dream I would keep in my heart until I had my life in order. 
He made me feel like I could take over the world.
I wasn't supposed to fall in love.
We agreed to stay together, until one of us wanted something different. 
I wasn't scared of but, I was scared of and. And what if he leaves?

And our fairy tale came to an end. 

But did it have to end or can we find a reason to stay?

Epic Love Story!

This is a poignant and epic love story between two broken souls. Hudson Drago was abandoned by his mother when he was small, leaving him to help raise his younger sister because his father could never recover from that heartbreaking loss. Hudson never wanted to marry and set himself up for so much pain and suffering when they would eventually leave him. Jade Vance was abandoned at birth and rejected from one foster home after another until she was finally adopted by a very loving and supportive family. She still has anxiety over not being good enough and is always trying to please those around her, ignoring her own needs and desires. Jade and Hudson meet at Hudson's best friends wedding. What starts as a one night stand grows into so much more. Jade is off the next day to attend graduate school in Australia, then travel the world as a photojournalist. Hudson stays behind to prepare to start his own company. They can't stop thinking of each other and soon start calling to stay connected. They become best friends and slowly fall in love. Jade is carefree, passionate, and creative while Hudson is practical, strong, and kind. He comforts Jade and makes her laugh when she needs it. But can time and distance keep you warm on lonely nights? When they are in the same place, can a heart survive the ache it feels when they are forced to separate time after time? Jade finally finds a reason to stay and Hudson is eager to finally begin the life together he has patiently waited years for. But they both looked at a piece of paper very differently. To one it is a prison and to the other it is security. When meddling family, past lovers and a piece of paper comes between them, will they be able to find their reason to fight for their HEA? I fell in love with Jade and Hudson, even though they frustrated me at times. They were so good for each other, helping each other heal. I love that Ms. Burgoa takes her time developing Hudson, Jade and their complex relationship, making their growth, and epic love feel solid, authentic and unbreakable. She expertly weaves a multilayered tale that will make you feel every emotion and capture your heart. This unique and refreshing love story is a must read!
