“Race me for it.”
Four simple words. Five desolate years.

Sebastian Kelly believes he isn’t worthy of redemption, of a chance to right his wrongs. But an unexpected trip home, the place he dreads most, calls in question everything he’s come to believe. And who knows, he may find exactly what he’s been waiting for.


One broken promise. Two pink lines.

Autumn Norris knew in an instant her life would never be the same. Years have flown by in a flurry of sparkles and dress up, and Autumn has refused to let the anchor of regret pull her under.

Until she lays eyes on Sebastian, and the wave of “why," “where," and "how could you" flood her every thought.

Old hurt and new betrayal twist first love into a reluctant partnership, and theirs may be a bond even pigtails and butterfly kisses can’t mend. But the past five years have felt like a lifetime, and Seb is willing to wait as long as it takes.

Because the truth is, he’s always been waiting for Autumn.

J.A.’s Taste Test

I shared a frose recipe with y’all a few weeks ago, and let me tell you, it’s a winner! First of all, I made it, so you KNOW it’s super simple. Secondly, it was delicious and refreshing—just sweet enough, but not too sweet. And lastly, it has zero calories. I’m pretty sure I lost weight the night I drank it, so no guilt. Lol! Okay, so maybe I made that last part up.

My only suggestion is to drink it with a big straw. I initially had a smaller straw, and it pulled more of the alcohol and less ice. It’s tastier when it’s all mixed together perfectly.

If you didn't grab the recipe before and want to try it out, CLICK HERE.
