Violet Spencer and Cooper Reid were high school sweethearts, separated by the people who they were supposed to trust the most.

Four years later, Violet has recently finished college and Cooper is now a huge pop star. While both are letting loose in Las Vegas they find each other in a crowded bar. With their connection still burning red hot, they decide to make their union official and forever.

But the thing standing in their way aren’t the tabloids, it’s their meddling mothers willing to do almost anything to break them apart again.

Will their history and their love, along with their one special treasured bond be enough to win this time?



I make my escape out of the ballroom and into the garden. There are only a few people out here in the crisp night, standing around high top tables wrapped in white lights. It doesn’t take me long to find her staring up at the sky.

“Evelyn,” I growl.

Her head drops, looking at me disapprovingly through the slits of her eyes. “I came out here for a moment of peace and quiet.”

“Well, too bad. I think it’s finally time we chatted, don’t you? Lay it all on the line so we can move on?”

“Oh, like you have moved on with your mother?” She crosses her arms and narrows her eyes at me.

“My mother has nothing to do with this. This is between me and you, so I ask, why do you hate me so much?”

“Do you really think it’s appropriate to be getting into this now?” she says, looking contrite.

She might be right, but I couldn’t care less right now.

“Maybe not, but I’ve had enough of you trying to come between me and Cooper. All your snide remarks, the dance raffle, the mix up with the dress, Ainsley, and pretty much every comment that comes out of your mouth at me. Why? Tell me!” I demand, my voice raised to a shrill for my final two words.

“Because you will never be good enough for him.” She points her manicured finger at me. “He needs someone who meets his standard. You caused him to lose focus on what was really important. He was starting to turn around about going to Princeton, ‘till you came along. Sure, he got lucky, but what happens after the hits stop coming, hmm? Now he has no college degree and some hussy of a wife who in the end will take every last penny he has. I mean you made sure you got married so quickly there’s no prenup. What now, trap him down with a baby, is that your next goal? I’m actually surprised you didn’t do it years ago,” she spits out.

Unexplainable rage and hurt pours out of me. I grab a glass of wine sitting on a table and toss the contents at her, the red wine splashing her face and green silk gown. The wine drips off her as she stares at me big eyed and mouth gaping, in total disbelief.

Did I just do that? And why did it feel so good?

About Erica Marselas

?I’m a wife and a mother always… but a writer in my free time…whatever that is with four kids hanging around.

I’ve always had a vivid imagination and a passion for writing. All I ever wanted to ever do was share my words with the world. As long as I have idea for it.. I will write it.

When I need to clear my head from all the voices, I enjoy the outdoors with my family- beach, hiking, biking, and so on.

If I had one wish in the world it would to be freeze time around me, so I had more time to finish one thing before the kids stumble their way to me asking for juice.
