About the Book:

Julie falls in love with the boy who had become her best friend. Eventually, he ends up leaving town, running away, He can run as far as he wants, but he can't get away from her. She stayed. She put down roots, and, with the help of her friends, started a theatre company that is doing well enough to be able to hire a Technical Director. Julie puts her best friend and Lighting Designer on this job. He comes up with her ex-best friend. All sorts of emotions and memories are brought to the surface, including pain and sorrow for everything that had been lost. The only way she gets through this? Her friends. And funnily, enough, it's their fault that he was there. There's a little more trickery to it than Julie realizes. But if it breaks her out of her shell and challenges her and excites her, isn't it worth it?

About the Author:

After 20 years in OKC's theatre community, Samantha has decided to go back to what she loves doing that isn't quite as stressful as being a Stage Manager.

Author's Note:

This story is told with the use of flashbacks, which are indicated by italics. When I uploaded, I may have accidentally deleted some characters, so I apologize. This story is about 110,000 words long, so I'm looking to cut a significant amount, and I need fresh eyes. I welcome all grammar and content help. This story contains mild swearing, mild drug use, and alcohol use, on top of the sex. 04/25/11 I did some rewrites fueled by the critiques I've gotten thus far. I hope I'm going the right direction on POV. Thank you for your help, betafish.
