Xander: Book 1, The Beginning - Anne Mercier - Release Blitz

XANDER: Book 1, The Beginning

We met at the age of eight. That day on the playground was a turning point in my life. She stole my heart with just a glance as she sang off key.

But nothing’s perfect.

I figured out pretty quickly she was too good for me, so I let her go.
I thought I was doing the right thing--until I realized I wasn’t. 
She was my everything and without her I was nothing.

When we reunited, my heart became whole. My life had meaning. We loved fiercely and completely. Life was perfect.

The more success I gain with Falling Down, the further away I’m pulled from Tera. But she gains success of her own, and the distance grows immeasurably.

She wants me to live my dreams and I want the same for her. We both know our love is strong enough to survive time and distance.

Then the unthinkable happens and nothing will ever be the same again.

"This isn't easy for me to do. You've been my rock, but I don't want you to be my crutch. I know you're a phone call or a flight away. I promise you, if something happens, if I just need to talk to you to get me through a hard time, I will call you immediately, no matter the time. I'll interrupt you during a show. I promise." This is what he's asked of me. It's the least I can do for the man who owns my heart and soul, the man who's looked out for me for the last eight weeks without so much as a complaint.

He lets out a sigh of frustration. "I don't want to do this."

"I know. But you have to."

He looks into my eyes and I feel him searching for something—the truth. I let him see it. I let him see that I need him to do this not only for himself and his career, but for me as well. He can't miss out on something so amazing because he wants to sit here and make sure I'm okay. I can't allow him to do that. At some point he'd realize what he gave up and he'd resent me, especially if my career takes off. I couldn't live with that.

"For you, my wife, I'll do anything," he says softly.
