In Safe Arms - Ann Grech
When a damaged man stumbles on a second chance, it’s all too easy to turn and run. It takes a determined photographer to convince him risk is worth it all. People deserve a second chance, right? But what if I can’t even admit to myself who I am?
I was truthful once before. I came out, and he left me broken and scarred. He destroyed the boy I was. I don’t even use the same name anymore; I go by Trent now. But I survived the streets. I got lucky and I made something of myself. I’m happy, sort of.
Angelo lights up my life. He’s my world. But I keep hurting him. Still, he knows me better than anyone. And I want him. But I can’t go there. Not again. Living in denial is killing me.
In my weakest moments, I reach for Angelo and when he slips into my arms, I can breathe. He doesn’t date, but he deserves to be loved. Cherished.
Then he drops a bombshell—he’s found The One. I wish he’d fallen for me. I need to risk it all because in his arms, I’m safe. I’m me.
