It’s the romantic continuation you’ve been waiting for: Book three in the Alexa Reed series by Amazon bestselling author Hilary Wynne.
Alexa Reed finally has it all: a healthy new lease on life, a bright future with the man of her dreams, a great group of friends, and a job she loves. She’s finally seeing her happy ending.
That vision changes in an instant when an unexpected situation threatens the love she and Julian share. Suddenly Alexa is faced with the difficult choices of whether to STAY and HOLD ON, or run.
To escape the pain, she chose to run. She ran away from Julian and a life she could no longer be a part of.
Alexa’s life is anything but predictable, especially when it comes to love, and an unusual twist of fate leads Alexa and Julian back to each other.
It's more complex this time, because they aren’t the same people. Julian is struggling to trust Alexa, and he has every reason to. She has a damaging secret that threatens to ruin the fragile relationship they’re working to rebuild. Despite her fear, Alexa knows she needs to tell Julian the truth before they have any chance for a real future.
They say love conquers all, but can it conquer betrayal at the hands of the person who has promised to love you forever?

Hilary Wynne has completely blown me away yet again! This series has quickly become a favorite of mine. I became emotionally attached to these characters in book 1 "Stay". This book was no different. In this book I cried a lot, got so frustrated and then said WTF. Hilary hits you with a twist you don't see coming. – Eye Candy Bookstore
We’re walking to our table in the back when I feel a strong arm reach around my waist and pull me back a little. I know it’s Julian by the way he smells and the feel of his chest against my back. My pulse quickens. I try to turn around, but he holds me tightly against him and whispers in my ear.
“I’m not sure I approve of this dress in my restaurant. I just watched a few men choke on their food when you walked by. Not to mention you’ve made several ladies very unhappy. It doesn’t leave much to the imagination, mi amor. Es un poquito corto, no?”
I can feel the heat from his body against my back. I can also feel him harden. I grab his hand and spin around so I’m facing him. I put my lips to his ear and whisper back. “I guess it wouldn’t be a good idea to tell you I’m not wearing any panties, would it?”
Have you ever woken up one day and said, “Today’s the day I’m going to do (insert thing here)?” Well, I did, and the result is my first novel, Stay. I always thought of myself as a decent writer, and then a trip down memory lane through my ninth grade book of poetry confirmed it. I realize that I have always had a romantic side and a way with words. With support from my husband and kids (and an unspoken agreement to leave me alone for a few hours every night), I embarked on this incredible writing journey.
I’m originally from sunny Southern California and spent my summers in South Florida. I attended college at FSU and received my Masters in New Mexico. I finally settled in the Washington, DC area. My happy place has always been anywhere near the water.
When I’m not writing, I help run a business with my husband, watch an inordinate amount of sports (my kids play something 365 days a year), indulge my competitive spirit on the tennis court, and spend time with my awesome family and friends.
I am an avid reader, but find my characters feel neglected when I hang out with other author’s characters for too long. When I do read, historical fiction is my favorite genre. I love traveling and experiencing different cultures, places, and times.
I feel so blessed that my love of books inspired me to finally do something that I forgot I had always dreamed about doing.
My someday has arrived!
