If Only is a 23,000 short story. 18+ readers.
One night. One accident. A friendship torn. A chance at love lost. If only she hadn’t slept with her best friend. If only she hadn’t made the fatal left turn.
When her high school crush, Rhys Miles, returns to the small town of Willowbrook for his grandmother’s funeral, Asa Chanthavay realizes a year is too long for her to let Rhys believe he was at fault for her father’s death. But if she asks Rhys for his forgiveness, she’ll have to tell him the truth behind her accusation. And for a woman raised to hide her intense emotions, the thought of being vulnerable again has her fighting her feelings every step of the way.
One night with Asa hadn’t been enough. He wanted more. But scared by how much he was willing to give up to be with her, Rhys slips and says the opposite of what he means. Now with his ties to Willowbrook gone with the death of his grandmother, he decides to apologize to Asa for his crude words. Yet once she accepts his apology, can he walk away from her, never to return? Or will he risk his dreams of winning a Supercross championship to be with her?
