My Facebook page hit 9,000 “likes” so as promised here is a NEVER TOO FAR special excerpt:


The knocking started up again as I reached the door. I jerked it open ready to tell whomever it was to leave me the hell alone when words failed me.  This wasn’t someone I expected to ever see again. I’d only met the guy once and I instantly hated him. Now he was here, I wanted to grab him by the shoulders and shake him until he told me how she was. If she was okay? Where she was living? God I hoped she wasn’t living with him. What if he’d… no, no, no, that hadn’t happened. She wouldn’t. Not my Blaire.

My hands clenched tightly into fists at my sides.

“I need to know one thing,” Cain, the boy from Blaire’s past, said as I stared at him in confused disbelief. “Did you,” he stopped and swallowed, “do you,” He paused again and took off his baseball cap then ran a hand through his hair. I noticed the dark circles under his eyes and the tired weary expression on his face.

My heart stopped and I reached out and grabbed his upper arm and shook him, “Where’s Blaire? Is she okay?”

“She’s fine… I mean she’s okay. Let go of me before you break my damn arm,” Cain snapped jerking his arm away from me.  “Blaire is alive and well in Sumit. That isn’t why I’m here.”

Then why was he here? We had one connection- Blaire.

“There’s something I need to know,” he began, “When she left Sumit she was innocent. Very innocent. I’d been her only boyfriend. I know how innocent she was.  We’ve been best friends since we were kids.  The Blaire that came back wasn’t the same one that left. She doesn’t talk about it. She won’t talk about it. I just need to know if you and her… if y’all… I’m just gonna say this,” he took a deep breath, “ did you fuck her?”

My vision blurred as I moved without any thought other than to murder him. He’d crossed a line. He wasn’t allowed to talk about Blaire like that. He wasn’t allowed to ask those kind of questions or doubt her innocence. Blaire was innocent damn him. He had no right.

“Holy shit! Rush, bro, put him down!” Grant’s voice called out to me and I heard him but it was far away and in a tunnel. I was focused on the guy in front of me as my fist connected with his face and blood spewed from his nose.  He was bleeding. I needed him to bleed. I needed someone to fucking bleed.
