Each day I prayed for my husband to love me again.
After fifteen years together, he walked away from me, and into the arms of another.
I didn’t know how to cope. I didn’t know my worth. I didn’t know how to exist without him by my side.
All I wanted was for him to come back to me.
Then, Jackson Emery appeared.
He was supposed to be a distraction for my mind. A summer fling. A confidence boost to my bruised heart.
We were perfect for one another, because we both knew we wouldn’t last. Jackson didn’t believe in commitment, and I no longer believed in love. He was too closed-off for me, and I was too damaged for him.
Everything was fine, until one night my heart skipped a beat.
I didn’t expect him to make me laugh. To make me think. To make my sadness somewhat disappear.
When our time was up, my heart didn’t know how to walk away.
Each day I prayed for my husband to love me again, yet slowly my prayers began to shift toward the man who wasn’t right for me.
I prayed for one more smile, one more kiss, one more laugh, one more touch…
I prayed for him to be mine.
Even though I knew his heart wasn’t destined to love.

Another heartwarming and thought provoking journey by Brittainy C Cherry. I loved it, I loved the journey and I loved how the characters completely captivated me.
"Finlay caged me. Jackson allowed me to fly."
Disgrace is the story of Grace and Jackson.
Grace grew up as the pastors daughter, the towns poster child along with the rest of her family, a family the whole town looked too. Grace married her childhood sweetheart and moved away to teach while her husband became a doctor. Fifteen years into their marriage after a few miscarriages and drifting apart Grace discovers her husband has been having an affair.
Grace was broken and lost, she was a woman who had always done what everyone else wanted her to do. Grace's father was the pastor so she had an image to uphold, Grace didn't know who she was anymore. At the end of the school year ended she returned home for the summer to the little town full of the church folk that she once adored but her eyes began to open, she began to see town gossips and truths and it was all down to the towns black-sheep Jackson Emery.
Jackson was a man with a huge chip on his shoulder, he was the only man along with his father who didn't attend church, he was the talk of the town, the man people loved to hate but he didn't care what anyone thought. Jackson had a whole lot of hurt and anger within him.
Jackson's witnessed his mother leaving his father when he was just a boy and the very same night she was killed in an accident which left him broken along with his father who turned to drink and Jackson turned to drugs but then Jackson became clean, his father however remained a drunk and now years later Jackson was his carer.
Two people with hurts, two people who have never experienced how to live for themselves, two people hurt by the actions of others and two people who start a journey of self discovery together.
A breathtaking journey, I completely got lost in the lives of Grace and Jackson. A perfect Sunday read or for when you just want to get immersed in words.
