To believe one person can change your destiny sounds absurd. But it happened to me… twice.
Ten years ago I had no idea what I wanted out of life, until I met Hannah Michaels. She was a computer-engineering student ready to conquer the social media world, and I was smitten. Even though I knew she was taken, I had to have her.
Being the big shot that I was, I didn’t let her status stand in my way. It wasn’t long before my hands were on her thighs and my name a whisper on her lips. This smart, sexy girl inspired me to greatness, helped me grow into the kind of man I never knew I wanted to be. The man I am today.
Too bad I hadn’t grown fast enough to keep her.
Moving on wasn’t easy, but I knew I had to let her go. Eventually, I found someone to share my days and nights with, and together we had a daughter. My life was nearly perfect until my world turned upside down.
A single father has challenges, and one of those is learning how to calmly deal with your child coming home in tears. I had no idea the day I pounded on my daughter’s classmate’s door, Hannah would be the one standing on the other side.
The wild, burning desire that rushed through my veins was unwanted, and yet impossible to ignore. Letting her in meant so much more this time around. Guilt hit me like a hammer. I hated myself. I hated her. The problem was I really didn’t hate her—I wanted her more than ever.
But this time around, I can’t have her.
This time it’s my status that stands in our way—and going up against myself just might be the hardest thing I’ve ever done.
Jace Bennett is a broken soul and has been from a young age. Losing his parents at the age of 10, he grew up angry and rebellious and, when he seemed to have found his path, he lost his wife and ended up a single parent.
Hannah Michaels has just moved into town to start a new job and a new life with her young son. The last thing she expected was to come face to face with a man from her past when he came knocking on her front door.
This is a story about second chances. Jace and Hannah have a history that started in college 10 years prior, before he knew which direction to take in life or either of them even considered having a family.
Big Shot was not at all what I expected. I was surprised by the take on the story which I found gripping, emotional and profound. These characters fall in love and go through a lot just to be together the first time around, but being young and stupid, they get into a situation that will become too much for them and end up completely overcome by guilt even after they split up. Fast forward 10 years and they are still experiencing the aftermath of those feelings and, when they meet again, they can’t decide whether to start over or pick up right where they left off.
I liked the story and felt for the characters. Jace was such a tortured soul that you can’t do anything but give him your heart and Hannah is so full of love, compassion and understanding that will put heart on the line maybe more times than we would. Still, she’s a strong woman and I for one couldn’t pass judgement on her actions.
