Jade Nash is a giver.
She gives up on hope.
She gives up on love.
She gives up on the truth.
What Jade doesn’t anticipate is giving in to uprooting the past, especially when she vowed to never let it affect her future.
Seth McCullough is a breaker. He breaks promises. He breaks records. He breaks hearts. What Seth doesn’t anticipate is breaking the cycle, especially when he vowed not to, because that would mean breaking the rules.
Jade, a novel by Sarah Jayne Carr
Miles’s eyes trailed up toward me slowly and then his focus turned back to the ground. “Don’t start, Doc.” Defeat filled his voice, “I’m not in the mood.”
I stood and stared, waiting. For what, though? More acidic remarks? Commentary on my clothes? Another dime? None of it happened. Miles McCullough kept his head aimed downward.
Man, I deserved a gold star. A big one. So many sassy retorts were ready, and I should’ve beamed with pride for not using a single round of verbal ammo. So, why I didn’t feel better about my influx of willpower? Instead, and with caution, I walked over to where he sat and stepped off the curb to sit two feet away from him. Each word was picked carefully like daisies in a field.
“Who’d do this?” I asked.
He shrugged. “In this town? Who wouldn’t.”
“Did you call the police?”
“Right.” He laughed through his nose. “No cop in Cannon Cove will help Seth McCullough. Trust me.”
