That painful, chew you up and spit you out point that happens after the person you thought would be there for you forever morphs into a spawn of Satan. Most of us can say we’ve been there, done that, got the T-shirt, and burned it along with a few of his pictures.
Most of us have sworn, “Never again!” Never to let another get anywhere near our hearts.
But harder than learning to trust the opposite sex is learning to trust ourselves again. Yup, it hits most us. Bam! Hindsight.
Just like that, we remember seeing all the signs. And I’m talking flashing neon signs along the road in the relationship that we completely ignored. Signs like “Detour” or “Road Closed” or “Bumpy Roads Ahead” or even worse, “Dead End.”
Yep, warning signs that should have told us to walk, or rather to shove it into high gear and get the hell out of Dodge. But nope, we were blindsided by sweet promises, and soft touches. And that’s where trust comes in, or rather the lack of trust. If we foolishly allowed love to make idiots out of us once, how do we know it won’t happen again?
It’s not easy to trust or to believe in love after your heart has been used as target practice. I’ve learned that personally. Yup, I’ve got a few ex-husband stories I could share. And that’s what motivated my Divorced & Desperate series.
First there was Lacy and Chase, Sue and Jason, then Luke and Kathy. But then came my three divorced cops who started their own club. The No Ball and Chain Gang. Turner found Reese in D,D & Dangerous. Cary found Chloe in D,D & Dead. Now Danny get his turn in D, D &Daring.
Divorced, Desperate & Daring will release in late October, but should be up for preorder soon.
