CrossReads Short Takes
Written in the Sand
by Lynette Bonner
Two years ago, a fist not only tore away the last tattered threads of Riley Ross’s ability to trust another human being with her heart, but also stole any chance she would ever have of carrying another child. Since she wouldn’t ask any man to walk through that grim reality with her, she’s made a decision not to start any relationships.
So when she arrives to pick up her younger brother from his soccer practice and sees that Jalen Rivera is his new coach, she knows she’s in for a battle. Because if ever there was a man who could tempt her to forget her vow, it was Jalen. She’d managed to resist him once, could she find the selflessness to do so again?
Jalen can’t believe his good fortune when he learns that Riley still isn’t seeing anyone. But convincing her to give them a chance might be more difficult than he anticipated. Can he prove to her that true love is not written in the sand, but is etched into a foundation stone that is bigger than either of them?
