He’s only a friend. 

Those words had haunted him from the moment Jessie James had heard them muttered from the one girl, above all others, that he thought had his back. 

Sixteen years later, he still feels those words like a brand on his soul. 

Lucky for him he has a son to take care of, a full-time job that demands every single second of the day, and not a single moment to spare for the likes of a woman that won’t stand up for him when he needs her the most. 

He’s only a friend. 

The words had slipped out of Ellen’s mouth, and before she could recall them or better yet, explain, Jesse is gone from her life for good, taking her heart with him. 

She tries to find her way out of the pit of despair, but not one single person, no matter how much she tries, can fill the void that he left in his wake. Time heals all wounds. Or at least that is how the saying goes. It’s a crock of crap, though.

Sixteen years pass when Jessie and Ellen see each other again without the influence of the town and bad memories surrounding them, and it’s as if not a single day has passed. 

Ellen knows the instant that her eyes see her old love that she’s still just as much in love with him today as she was all those years ago. The problem is that Jesse wants nothing to do with her. Or at least that’s what he keeps telling himself.

And Jessie’s beard is spectacular!
Ahh… a new Rejects story! I was so ready to sink my hands into a new beard and wallow in another funny, heart-tugging, family-filled romance. And I so did! Ellen and Jessie’s relationship ended years ago with a pain-filled whimper. When they meet years later so much had changed but also remained the same. They had to work through their past, deal with the present and wonder if there would ever be a future them…
 “You feel like my dreams,” he whispered gruffly.”
Jessie is a man who was dealt the worst, and the best, things in life. Through it all, sacrifice for the ones he loves was something he was prepared to do even if it hurts himself. The big things, the little things, they were a measure of Jessie’s heart and how big and loyal it was. He was big and brash and could my heart with the way he loves…
Ellen was angry and hurt, with years only increasing her feelings of love and devastation for the man who had meant everything. Her life had not gone in the direction she thought it would and when Jessie came back into her life she would have to re-evaluate everything… While they would square off for a battle a long time coming, her heart would be tested yet again.
“If it weren’t for physics and law enforcement, I’d be unstoppable.”
And what a battle it was! Theirs is a second chance that is fraught with emotion and such real life that I couldn’t help wallowing in the drama and laughter. This author, her series, have people who you know, who could be your brother, your sister, your family, and makes them your own. They make me laugh, they make me mad. And they make me feel like love, no matter how hard life is, can get you through anything. Jessie, Ellen, Linc… This story is all that and more…
I’m a married mother of three. My kids are all under 5, so I can assure you that they are a handful. I’ve been with my paramedic husband now for ten years, and we’ve produced three offspring that are nothing like us. I live in the greatest state in the world, Texas.
