Excerpt

Prologue

Fifth Anniversary ~ January of Senior Year

“Where are we going?” Bonnie asked. She dog-eared the book she was reading and sat it on her lap. “This seems far. You know I’ve got some studying to do.” “We are close. I promise.” Eli replied. He looked at his girlfriend. She was beautiful in every way. Every time he saw her, that single thought flew across his mind. Today, her butterscotch hair was up in a ponytail and she was wearing a light blue sundress. He reached over and held her pale hand, rubbing his thumb over each light-pink polished nail. She rolled her eyes playfully and smiled. Ten minutes later, he pulled his ’88’ squirrel gray Chevy into a dirt driveway and parked beside a small, but sturdy brick house. The lake stretched out beyond the house. “Alright, loop me in. Where are we?” Bonnie’s curiosity was peaked as she climbed out of the truck, the door creaking and groaning. She turned around and let loose an admiring sigh. “This is my grandparents’ old house before they moved into town. Pops said I could come here anytime I wanted; to fish, swim, whatever.” Eli pulled out a key and unlocked the front door. “He has someone come out here twice a month to clean and mow. Eventually, this will be mine.” “Oh wait! This is the house we went to one time that summer in elementary school, right?” Eli nodded and she continued, “Well it’s very pretty. I didn’t remember it until now. I think having a lakefront property is really neat,” Bonnie said, crossing the threshold into the house. It housed all the comforts of any regular home. The living room was fully furnished, with a bookcase in the corner full of antique hardcover books and knick knacks. A medium-sized flat screen TV hung on the wall opposite of the khaki colored leather couch. A shelf joined the entertainment console that housed a DVD player and cable box. The air smelled like vanilla and clean linen. Bonnie walked over to the floor-to-ceiling bookcase. It was custom built and massive. Books always drew her like some sort of invisible magnet. While she was browsing, Eli walked into the adjoining kitchen. He powered on the CD player sitting on the kitchen counter. Michael Bolton’s soulful voice filled the room singing, “When a Man Loves a Woman. “Through the bar cutout, Eli saw Bonnie freeze as the music started. She threw her head back and laughed. Eli smiled, like he always did when she laughed; it was such a comforting adorable, real laugh. It was infectious, loud and girly all in one. “Wow, Eli. No you didn’t! Oh wow, I don’t know if I should laugh or cry!” she exclaimed. “Will you just hush and dance with me?” Eli grinned and held out his hand. A week earlier he had borrowed the CD from Bonnie’s mother, Cindy, after telling her his idea for their anniversary date. He knew that her favorite singer was Bolton and this was her ultimate favorite song. They danced then, a sweet and slow dance while Bolton crooned on. Bonnie closed her eyes and leaned her head against Eli’s chest. She inhaled his faint scent of cologne. He smelled heavenly, just like always. “You are something else, Eli,” she whispered.

Reviews

Bonnie doesn’t take Eli’s crap I liked that, “well, I’ll leave if you want. I don’t have a problem doing that if it means I won’t be unjustly attacked just because you’re suffering from PMS.” Didn’t know men could get that as well, good to know. You can tell that Eli really does care about Bonnie before they spent years apart and after, “well, excuse me. I didn’t have time to take a shower; I had to save a damsel in distress after all.” I mean he’s really caring, “I picked up tissues, Theraflu, more ibuprofen, sore throat spray, some Vicks chest rub stuff, and cough drops. Oh and I bought some chicken noodle soup and Sprite. Sprite is the only thing I’ll drink if I’m real sick. Don’t know why, but it’s what my mom uses,” he smiles at me as he lays everything on my dresser.” Mick I expected more from him, but turns out he’s a total a**, “you know why. I’m here to bring you home. I know your mom’s fine now. You can leave this place and quit playing babysitter.” I was happy with the ending I love my Happily Ever Afters.

I received a free e-copy for an honest review of Again by Brandy Jeffus.
I would recommend this book for an enjoyable quick read with likable characters and a great story line.  Bonnie and Eli were high school sweethearts and best friends, destined to be together forever.  Unfortunately Eli made a drunken, one-night stand mistake and broke off things with Bonnie feeling unworthy of her and that his life was forever altered due to this mistake.  Not being able to deal with the situation, Bonnie leaves town for college and meets and starts dating a ‘rock’ star.  Knowing this isn’t her forever an unforeseen car accident her mom has brings her home to help with care giving and back to Eli.  Six years later, some things change but the one constant is a forever love that hasn’t stopped for either Bonnie or Eli.  This is a teenage romance with some romance scenes but nothing too steamy.  I would definitely recommend and keep Brandy on my indie author look out list for new books!!

-Kim, Goodreads (July 2013)

 This is a fairly straight forward story of love lost and then reignited. Eli and Bonnie were high school sweethearts and best friends since childhood. Engaged as seniors they planned to marry and live happily ever after. One night, drunk at a graduation party, Eli betrays Bonnie and then breaks up with her. She is ready to forgive him, but Eli doubts the strength of his love and feels unworthy of Bonnie. They separate and live different lives far away from each other. Back home after her mom has a near-fatal accident, Bonnie meets up with Eli, who was on site for the accident and stood by her mother’s side. Both of them are free from romantic entanglements, and find themselves falling for each other all over again. They discover that they never really stopped loving each other really. After a shoot out and Eli is wounded, they realize life is too short and they wasted too much time already. It is a good story without tragic backstories and a happily ever after.
