Best of Me
von L.K. Farlow
For as long as I can remember, I've been the dark to my sister's light-the awkward loner to her social butterfly. Growing up, she had it all: our parent's unyielding approval, perfect grades, a permanent spot at the popular table, and the attention of the hottest guy ever-Duke Kincaid. After eighteen years of living in her shadow, I couldn't wait to escape-to finally be my own person. Yet here I am-back in my hometown, once again in Valorie's shadow. Only now, it's eternal. I had life all planned out: join the force, marry Valorie Parsons, and start a family of our own. I have the job, but the girl and all my dreams died before my very eyes. Finally ready to move on, I agree to a blind date. Imagine my shock when I arrive and find Valorie's twin sister waiting across the table from me. Mallory should be a reminder of all that I've lost, but, instead, she feels like my redemption...like maybe life's giving me a second chance. But how can I be enough for her when I've already given her sister the best of me?
