by Cassia Leo

Welcome to my stop on the CASSIA LEO Release Day Blitz for Bring Me Home!  I hope you’ve been reading along because I have yet another bit of the story here on the blog!  And don’t forget that the first book in this series, Relentless, is on sale for only 99 cents!


The breath-taking conclusion to the New York Times and USA Today bestselling series is expected to be released August 6, 2013.

Claire Nixon is a college student with a past full of secrets and heartbreak. She was saved once by her first love, and rock star, Chris Knight. But when she encouraged Chris to leave town to pursue his dreams, both Claire and Chris didn’t realize it would be the biggest mistake of their lives.

After a devastating year apart and thousands of miles of distance between them, Claire met sexy surfer Adam Parker. With his awful jokes and profound patience, he helped Claire pick up the shattered pieces of her broken heart for the second time.

But now Chris has returned and he is willing and determined to make Claire’s dreams come true—the same way she did for him when she let him go.

With Adam’s former girlfriend in the picture, Claire finds herself torn between the new, passionate love she shares with Adam and the love and family she shares with Chris

Chapter Three

I try not to roll my eyes as I push away from the table. “I’m going to pick up Tristan. Do you need anything before I go?”

“Where are you going with him?”

“We’re going to a friend’s house. Why?”

“A girl?”

“No, not a girl. We’re going to Billy’s house. You remember Billy? He came over three weeks ago to pick up some pedals.” She eyes me suspiciously. “Mom, I’m not going to do anything stupid. I’ll be back by six at the latest. Tristan and I have to practice in case we start recording next week.” I kiss her cheek as she pries open a large plastic tub of flour. “I’ll see you later.”

“Wait a minute,” she calls out when I’m halfway across the kitchen. “What’s going on with the baby?”

My mom hasn’t been able to say Abigail’s name. I think she feels that speaking her name aloud will make her more real and more difficult to let go.

“I can’t say. I’m not bringing you or Claire into this until I get it figured out. I don’t want to get your hopes up. But I’m working on it. I’m not giving up.”

She nods and I head out of the kitchen quickly before she can question me anymore. The subject of Abby is not a subject I like discuss with anyone. Ever since my dad left, I’ve never really been the type of person to talk about my problems unless it’s to try to find a solution. And there’s no solution when your parent up and abandons you. The only person I’ve ever bared my soul to is Claire, but this isn’t something I can talk to her about yet. I need to give her some time to heal and I need to figure out what’s going to happen with the post adoption agreement before I discuss anything with her. Until then, I’ll pretend to be strong, even though the truth is that I feel like more than half of my heart is missing.
