Breathe Easy by Michelle Scott (epub) The Breathe Book 2
But time and distance has not extinguished it. Other people and relationships haven’t doused the flames. And no matter how much we try to stay away from each other, we always end up in the same proximity. Like magnets, we can’t resist the force that keeps pulling us together. No matter how hard we try to deny it.
I fell in love with the boy next door.
Lucas took me to the highest of highs when we were together. He was like the brightest ray of sun when he was shining his light on me. I felt warm and happy and illuminated. But when he took that sunshine away, I suddenly found myself in the dark. It was cold and lonely. I was no longer visible.
Now I have my fresh start in college. A new beginning. Too bad Lucas is here, shining on the football field just like he did in high school. He’s everywhere I turn. In my classes, at the same parties, hanging with my friends. But he’s no longer the boy I once knew. He’s about to find out… I’m not the same girl either.
The world sits on my shoulders, the pressure unrelenting.
When everything is crumbling around you, how do you survive it without it completely crushing you?
I met a girl I was crazy about. And then I hit rock bottom. Everything I thought I knew was a lie. I tried to please everyone around me. And then I became someone I’m not. I’m clawing my way back to the top, trying to regain my footing. Grace is here. She’s in my thoughts. I see her around campus. She may think she’s done with me.
But I’m not done with her.
