read an excerpt...
I let go of him and he falters back. Dusty wraps his arms around me to pull me back and Camryn is begging me to stop. Her voice registers, sinking through the fury that just consumed me, and my head snaps up realizing where I am. Camryn’s hands are over her mouth and I can see her fighting back tears. And that’s when I see him, my little superhero, crying and shaking at Camryn’s side. My sweet little boy, my Gavin—how could I let myself get to this point?
I reach out to him and he shudders back, sinking into Camryn even more. At that moment, my heart shatters, seeing that my son, the one I vowed to protect, is afraid of the menace I just became. My gaze travels to Camryn and I see the pain in her eyes, which I am sure I put there. “Take him home, away from me.”
She reaches her hand and grasps my wrist, pulling me with her. “Come home with us.”
I pull my hand away and begin to back away from them. “Take him home without me. Right now, he’s afraid…of me.” I can’t bear to stay here and look at what I did to Gav and Camryn, to see that the old Cole has never really left. I rush off the beach, away from my family, the ones I disappointed again with my thoughtless actions. I try to grasp the realization that I’m no longer the superhero Gavin once thought I was. Today, I became the villain.

More Personal "Stuff" about Kimberly...
1. If I could be one character…
I would definitely be Lila. She is hysterical and definitely knows how to have a good time. I love how fierce she is with her best friend. Her loyalty is unwavering.
2. Research for the Book
I hung out at skate parks and with surfers to make sure those scenes were accurate and realistic. I wanted to portray both of those sports properly since they played such a significant part in the story. Hanging on the beach with surfers was a real tough job!
3. My Favorite Reads
My favorite book is The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton because it introduced me to the love of reading. I love the Hunger Games because it allows me to bond with my own kids who love the series. My favorite Contemporary Romance is the Thoughtless Series by SC Stephens because it gave me the worst book hangover of all time!
