Genre: Contemporary Romance
Alivia Jones set out to New York to become rich and successful. Her dream to work on Wall Street happened but left her heart empty. She sold her soul to the CEO of Financial Freedom, Brent Atwood. He had everything to give a woman except his heart. He referred to their relationship as a perfect arrangement. Her emotional struggle to stay with him tore her apart until she realized he didn’t own her.
Alivia quit her job, ended her ‘arrangement’ and left for Sunset Beach for her tenth reunion. There she’d left a broken-hearted Jacob Adams. Hesitant to see him again quickly disappeared with one sunset, one kiss. Will sunset kisses and one crazy idea with her best friends keep her in Sunset Beach?
There were no clouds in the sky. Jacob felt it to be a sign of promise for a calm, peaceful night. His wish for her to return had come true. This time he wished for her to stay. As he got closer he inhaled her scent deeply as the ocean breeze carried it to his senses.
She turned and smiled. “Jacob, just in time.”
She said no more as she held out her hand to him. He reached for it. Her fingers intertwined with his and he stepped up beside her. Silence remained as they watched the sunset just as they had so many times. It felt like she’d never left. No matter how much time had passed and wherever their lives had taken them, it no longer mattered. Their special spot remained theirs. Jacob smiled as the tip of the sun drifted beyond the horizon. He laughed.
“What’s so funny?” Alivia’s eyes met his.
He smiled. “Just remembering when we were kids and you thought the sun sunk and the water put out the fire.”
Alivia chuckled. “I was five!” she protested.
Jacob reached for her other hand. He lifted them both to his lips.
“I’ve missed you, Liv.”
Her eyes filled. She smiled.
“I missed you, Jacob. “Her eyes locked onto his gaze. She’d always been the most beautiful part of the sunset. He kissed her hands as he held them against his lips. He watched a single
tear fall upon her cheek. He leaned in and brushed his lips gently against her cheek to wipe it away. His head tipped down to rest upon hers. Her heart beat against him and his eyes closed. Silently he prayed her heart belonged to him. His heart belonged to no other.
