Life has a funny way of pushing us beyond what is mentally possible.
I was born to parents who never cared if I had food or clothes. I was nothing. A waste of space and time to them.
At sixteen, they relocated…and didn’t bother to tell me.
I lived in my busted up and broken-down car behind a gym for months when two men found me.
One of them I believed was my savior, the love of my life. Turns out things aren’t always what they seem. He was the devil in disguise.
A few thousand bad decisions later, I find myself in the very same parking lot where I found the devil and the man who supported me through it all.
I’m Paige Turner. I’m a mess of a woman with nothing but hard times in my past and a future that’s completely uncertain.
I had a life once. I had a wife and a baby on the way. My life was everything I never knew I wanted.
I was halfway around the world, defending my country, serving the United States proudly, when I lost absolutely everything that mattered.
I couldn’t save them. I couldn’t even fight for them.
I went through the stages of grief and I’ve come out on the other side a different man.
Now, I fight.
There is something therapeutic about beating someone or even yourself. I can control the pain, unlike my life.
I’m Sergio Nichols. When my family was taken, I’ve somehow learned to function in a new dysfunctional family of their own making.
Two broken people with one chance at redemption.
If you love something let it go … it’s not that easy.
Vance DeMarco and Elaine Storm have a history. Once full of love, passion, and pain.
Time has torn them apart and yet, brought them back together. This time with families, businesses, and tons of responsibilities too.
Their story is truly about life’s second chances.
Because as the saying goes, when it comes back … it’s simply meant to be. Except nothing in love is ever simple.
