Jaxson and Wilder met in college and grew a love that held them to one another, in secret, yet unforeseen circumstances forced them apart. Broken hearts left them both unwilling to open themselves to another as their souls knew who owned them. Neither of them will settle for anything less than the key which fits the lock they’ve each placed upon themselves.
Once again A.M. Johnson created a world where love is love but not without hard work and a passion which blazes between her main characters. Wilder is the creative nerd who knew from a very young age he loved deeply and his heart clung to the one who tore him apart. His walls crumble from the beginning of something beautiful, yet not meant to be, and he rebuilt his fortress, allowing no one to enter for years.
Jaxson loved the freedom Wilder brought to his life, but freedom only existed within four walls and held no truths in the world in the outside world. His life did not include openly loving a man like Wild. He sucked down his happiness and trapped himself behind false walls and social pretenses. Johnson developed these two dynamic characters with all the realities of broken dreams, disgusted narrow-minded fools, and friendships that build bridges for open hearts, minds, and love to fill the soul. No good romance comes without its closet of horrors and mistakes. Johnson doesn’t miss a beat with any of these clever tools. Love Always, Wild is a must-read for 2020!
When I left that night, I had every intention of coming back to you. To us. But no matter how hard I wish for what I want, there are some things in life that aren’t meant to be. I don’t expect you to understand. You’ve already moved on, living your life. But mine ended that night, nine years ago, and I still can’t let you go. Not sure I ever will. I regret so many things, but hurting you, I’ll never forgive myself. I’m sorry for… everything.
If only you could’ve seen it like I did, the way you were when you thought the world wasn’t watching. How you’d change when I looked at you, when it was just us.
But most of all… I wish you could’ve seen how much it hurt me when you disappeared. Regrets are for cowards. It has always been my belief you should chase after the things you want with actions, not words. There is no such thing as never meant to be.
So this apology… not accepted…
Love always, Wild
