Bright, spunky Heather Robbins has escaped her small hometown and is anxiously beginning her freshman year of college. Rising above her rocky childhood, she’s found a place where good things are finally starting to happen: her own private apartment, refreshing college classes, and an intense attachment to a mysterious and rugged classmate, Nick Richards.
But when her dreamy college life turns out to be nothing more than a wonderful dream while resting in a coma, questions threaten.
Now, Heather must press forward to unlock the real past and find the answers buried deep in her mind. What she unlocks instead is a roller coaster ride through flashbacks, embellished memories, and a whirlwind romance.
And when it’s all over and she comes face to face with the truth, will she lose everything she’s fallen in love with?
I was on the couch in my apartment, half asleep, my head on Nick’s lap.
“Hey,” he said softly. “You awake?”
“Mm-hm,” I returned, my eyes closed.
“It’s snowing outside.”
“Really?” my voice croaked. I moaned and stretched, attempting to wake myself and shifting my body so I faced him. But my eyes stayed closed. I felt peaceful. “Less than two weeks till Christmas,” I said sleepily. “Just in the nick of time.” I sluggishly laughed at myself.
“Good one,” he replied.
“For Christmas,” the words were woozy sounding, coming out slowly, “are you my Saint Nicholas? Get it?”
I heard a distant laugh. “Alrighty, go back to sleep.”
“No really, I’m awake.” I tried to open my eyes, but they were too heavy. Vaguely, I felt his fingers slip through my hair. It was so soothing that I drifted off.
Half asleep, I heard him whisper, “I’m in love with you.”
