Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Day: August 1st


Once upon a time, there was a girl who had a crush on a boy. Eventually, they fell in love. They lived happily ever after.

Except they didn’t. Not even close.
I’m the girl, but that’s not my story.

Once upon a time, I fell for a boy, but we didn’t have a happily ever after. In fact, we crashed and burned. Which turned out to be for the best because it forced me to grow up and realize the only wedding bells in my future are the ones I orchestrate for clients.

For six years I’ve been perfectly content with meaningless, short-lived flings and running from anything that resembles a real relationship.

That boy?
He’s my best friend’s brother, and he’s no longer the boy I fell for—he’s a man I can’t stand.

Oh, and he’s also my new neighbor.

Seemingly overnight, Jasmine Winters went from being my sister’s best friend to being the girl I couldn’t get enough of. But like most good things, it didn’t last.

Things fell apart so suddenly, I’m able to convince myself that summer never happened. At least, I was, until the only distance between us is a hallway instead of a time zone.

Six years ago, I let Jasmine slip through my fingers without an explanation because I was convinced we’d be better off apart. But now that we’re neighbors, our unspoken vow of apathy has unwittingly been shattered. Our exchanges consist of trading insults and icy stare downs. But in-between, I catch glimpses of the way she used to look at me, glimpses of the girl I fell for years ago.

Things are different now, though. This time… I won’t let her walk away without giving me answers.

When Light Leads to You is the second full-length novel of the Forget Me Knot series, but can be read as a standalone. **Due to strong language and the sexy times between these two, this book is recommended to readers ages 18 and up.**

Exclusive Excerpt:

Joe nodded and pulled a glass out from under the bar. “Looks like you’ll have to get in line for her,” he said, gesturing in Jasmine’s direction.
Something tells me she’d let me jump the line if she saw me, I mumbled to myself. And not because she was happy to see me.
I shook my head. “Nah, it’s not like that. She’s . . .” I paused to sip my beer and decide how to finish that sentence. “A friend,” I finally settled on. The word friend rolled off my tongue easily enough. We were friends, right? More or less. “How much has she had to drink?”
“Enough to make me take her keys after the last one.”
What the hell possessed her to get so carried away?
To their blatant disappointment, Jasmine finally peeled herself away from the two guys attempting to convince her to play another game of darts. She took a seat at the far end of the bar. I stood and slowly made my way over, studying her to try and get some kind of clue about her mood. In a matter of seconds, she’d gone from laughing and smiling with random guys to sitting comfortably alone, apparently deep in thought. I was tempted to sit back and watch her a little longer, but I couldn’t seem to stop my feet from carrying me closer to her.
“You wanna talk? Let’s talk,” I said, leaning in close and taking the seat to her left.
She yelped and nearly jumped out of her chair. “JESUS CHRIST, DEAN! You can’t just sneak up on people like that.”
“And you can’t just leave a voicemail like that and then not answer your fucking phone, Jasmine,” I bit out, already exasperated with her.
“That was a mistake. Why are you here? I mean, seriously. It’s pretty fucking clear how we feel about each other.”
“How exactly do we feel about each other?” I asked, curious about her alcohol-induced response. After Sunday, I didn’t blame her for hating me, but I could honestly say I didn’t hate her. As much as I’d tried over the years, I just couldn’t hold on to the feeling.
“Well, since you shattered our bubble of indifference at Jade and Emmett’s party, we’re incapable of having normal conversations. At the very least, there’s a pretty mutual feeling of animosity between us. It’s zero to a thousand miles per hour with us, Dean. There’s no in-between.” She sighed and shook her head. “Look, it’s been a really shitty day, and I’m not in the mood to deal with the emotional whiplash our conversations give me.”
“Are you going to elaborate on that or am I going to have to start guessing about what’s making your day shitty?” I asked.
“I’d rather just keep drinking until the day’s over.”
“What a mature, well thought out plan, Jas. You’re really nailing this whole ‘adulting’ thing.”

Her head whipped around to give me a heated look. Probably not the best idea to piss off a drunk Jasmine, but I was losing my grip of control on the situation. I was seconds away from dragging her out of the bar and finally getting some answers from her. Drunk or not, she wasn’t getting off the hook.
