Today is cover reveal day, and I am so excited.
I'm SO SO SO OMG SO EXCITED!!!!
So, when I first started writing COME BACK TO TEXAS, I had no intention of writing a sequel. It was going to be one book, and that was it. But the more I wrote, the more I realized that Hayley and Nate's story couldn't possibly fit into just one book.
And then I curled up in a corner and cried because direct sequels are scary, man. They are super scary.
But I love Hayley and Nate, and I love their story, and so off I went to finish their story. Which involves a bit more heartbreak and drama, because Happily Ever After is never as simple as we want it to be, is it?
Then I emailed Hafsah, and asked her to make a cover as perfect and fabulous as COME BACK TO TEXAS, which is a tall order. But Hafsah is a miracle working genius, and then, this showed up in my inbox.
Y'all probably heard me screaming.
I mean, really.
I know you're screaming now.
I KNOW, RIGHT??
Dead. Dead from the perfect.
Happily Ever After is never as easy as it seems…
Hayley’s finally come back to Texas, and seeing her is everything Nate dreamed it would be. But four years apart means that everything has changed between them, and all the things that broke them up in high school have come back to haunt them.
Nate’s barely recovered from the explosion that lost his leg, part of his eyesight, and his entire squad. Being able to spend a week back in Leland was supposed to help him recover, yet all it has done is make everything worse. Everything still seems like a threat, nothing is safe, and Nate’s nightmares are only getting worse. His survivor’s guilt is crippling him, and ruining his relationship with Hayley. He loves her more than anything, but she deserves more than a broken man slowly losing his mind.
Being with Nate again is all Hayley’s wanted for the past four years. But reality isn’t exactly like her dreams. Nate’s fighting demons he brought home with him from Afghanistan, and Hayley’s scared that she’s not enough to help him fight them. When an unexpected ice storm and road trip stumble into their Christmas plans, Hayley and Nate are both forced to face their pasts and the unknown future.
It’s a love story that has spanned five years, over seven thousand miles, and countless YouTube videos, and it all boils down to a seven hour road trip.
Oh, you want to see the covers of COME BACK TO TEXAS and A DIFFERENT KIND OF FINE side by side?
I'll leave you to recover from that fabulousness.
You can add ADKOF to your Goodreads TBR right HERE- and remember, for every add, I donate more money to the Wounded Warrior Project.
There are a bazillion other things I can talk about now, but I think y'all are going to need some time to recover from the gorgeousness of this cover.
I'll leave you with a line from Nate (poor baby): You're not in Afghanistan anymore, Nate. You're in Leland, Texas, the middle of fucking nowhere, where terrorists aren't trying to kill you. Where nobody steps on land mines because there are no land mines to step on. Only the occasional football.
