Prologue - Cara
I woke up on a Tuesday. My eyes fluttered open and I glanced around the stark white room. I was surrounded by paper swans that hung from the ceiling and I held my breath, afraid that I didn’t survive my attack. Was this Heaven? Had they somehow let me slip through? The beeping of machines filled my ears but a blurred vision of Ellie was what I struggled to focus on.
“I’m here,” she spoke and the beeping of my heart monitor increased as her fingers wrapped around mine.
I tried to speak but my throat was raw and sore. A nurse was quickly by my side to give me a sip of water.
“Your throat was injured in the attack. Just take it easy,” the nurse said as she placed her hand on my shoulder. I kept my eyes locked on El as if she was an illusion that would vanish if I looked away. Please don’t disappear.
The nurse made a few notes on a clipboard and asked me a few questions before finally giving me a moment alone with Ellie. She leaned down, placing her forehead against mine and I finally let my eyes close.
“We don’t have much time,” she whispered as she pulled back to look me in the eye. “You have to tell them that this was a hate crime, Cara.”
I shook my head as I croaked out the word no.
“You can’t let him get away with this, Cara. I won’t let you let him get away with this.”
I shook my head again as she held up my cup of water so I could take another drink. “No one can know, El. Please. My mother…”
“Isn’t a mother at all if she doesn’t care about your safety or happiness.”
“What happiness?” I asked and she gave me a sad smile as her hand covered mine. My knuckles hurt but I squeezed her back, needing to be closer to her.
“El, there aren’t any laws in Georgia to prevent hate crimes.”
I watched her lip quiver as that reality hit her. Our own government didn’t accept us as equals.
My life was meticulously planned and I refused to deviate from that path. While my peers were partying, I prepared for the future. Then a tragic event destroyed everything and I learned that while I was looking ahead, I forgot to live in the moment.
Starting over seemed impossible until I met Cara McCarthy, who lived every day like it was her last. She opened my eyes to a world of chaos and disorder. I loved every minute of it. She was also dating Tristan Adams, one of the most gorgeous men I’d ever seen.
The three of us became inseparable. Our parents were oblivious and soon lines became blurred, feelings began to grow, and someone’s heart was going to get broken. I hoped it wasn’t mine.

#1 New York Times bestselling author Jamie McGuire and I will release SWEET NOTHING: A NOVEL on all platforms and formats November 1, 2015! Pre-order links coming soon.
It is enough to break any man: watching what could have been my future slip away before it was ever in my grasp. The possibility of losing someone I loved, before she was even mine, is something I never would have imagined. Certainly nothing I'd ever wish on anyone. I went to her every day and waited. Waited for the impossible, for a sign, for her to look at me ... hoping sinners were granted miracles, too.
Just one glimpse of him was all it took. In the next lane, at a stop light was the man I would fall in love with and marry. People talk about the kind of love that takes time--love you fall in to. We were more like a crash and burn, and when our lives intertwined I knew I would never be the same. He was the man I would cherish the rest of my life, who would father my children. In an instant our life together began, and in an instant it would end. The late nights; the excuses; the lies. And in the blink of an eye, it was like we never were.
For the first time, experience a heartfelt, jaw-dropping novel by #1 New York Times bestseller Jamie McGuire, and New York Times bestselling author Teresa Mummert.
When you think you know what's happening, you're only half way there.
