Summary

New York Times & USA Today bestselling author Lorhainne Eckhart returns with a Friessen family character who must come to terms with unfinished business and long-buried hurts—not just for her family but for herself.

 
In Laura Friessen’s peaceful, comfortable world, her family is everything, and at times she has to remind herself how lucky she is. These days, she gives barely a passing thought to her unsupportive, hypocritical parents or to her husband’s father, who, as far as she’s concerned, is a scourge on the earth. Good riddance to them all!

 
However, her world comes crashing down in a single day. First, her husband’s father shows up on their doorstep without a penny to his name, believing Laura is solely responsible for his misfortune in life. Then an article appears online about her parents, who run a church mission in Africa and are portrayed as saints, with no mention of them ever having a daughter. Last, a courier arrives with an envelope addressed to her, with no return address, containing only three words: You owe me!

 
Laura believes this is Andy’s father’s pathetic attempt at revenge, at extracting what he believes he’s entitled to. She knows that if they let Todd Friessen through the door, he’ll attempt to manipulate not only Andy but also their children and grandchildren, who don’t know the man who now wants to be called Grandfather.

 
Unfortunately, what Laura doesn’t realize is that even though she has an amazing life, before she can move forward into her future, she has to confront her past.

    Yeah, that's right. It was a complete accident. No, I don't expect you to believe me. But, I swear, it was.
    
    See, I can explain…
    
    
    Excerpt:
    
    It was a late night at the office and I was very tired. My sexy wife, Alicia, texted me a nude selfie, telling me that there was a surprise waiting in our bed when I got home.
    
    That excited me. I thought about that surprise and got myself all horny and leaky with pre-cum until it was time to go home. I raced inside, threw off my uncomfortable clothes and tip-toed into the bedroom.
    
    I expected to see my wife sprawled out on the bed, completely naked, her luscious, red-haired body ready for my inspection. But I was puzzled when the room was not only dark, but silent.
    
    My heart beat faster. Was something wrong?
    
    I slowly crept up to my bed, felt around and smiled when I felt my wife's body. But it really wasn't my wife's body and I didn't know it. See, we'd had some financial troubles and had to move back in with my mother.
    
    "I'm home..." I whispered into my wife's ear (I'll call her mother from now on as it certainly wasn't my wife).
    
    No response.
    
    I shook her.
    
    Nothing.
    
    Then I smiled. We'd talked about playing sleep sex. This must be the surprise. I didn't know at the time that mom took some Ambien and was out like a light. She must've stumbled into our room by accident.
    
    My cock jumped nearly out of my pants as I thought about fucking my wife/mother (I know, this is weird, even still) in her sleep. I started at her feet and legs and kissed every inch of her delectable body. Mom's skin was so smooth and silky.
    
    I kissed her little toes and tickled them, seeing if she'd awaken, but she didn't. Good. I dove under the covers and spread open mom's legs. The heat of her fiery cunt nearly drove me insane. I'd never smelled my wife's juices so powerful before. If I had been thinking straight, I would've started to piece things together.
    
    But, alas, I wasn't.
