Six Sentence Sunday - If I Let You Go

With the cover reveal for my novella coming up next week, I figured now would be a good day to give you another glimpse inside If I Let You Go!

Just to let you know, you can now add it on Goodreads if you wish! Also, there is still time to enter the Goodreads paperback giveaway of Game On which you can find here.

Now, onto Six Sentence Sunday!

Synopsis:
Madison Connor is about to lose it. Her job, that is. For three years, she’s taken care of Dominic Hartley’s five year old daughter, Tilly, but her world is flipped on its head when Dominic tells her his latest promotion is taking him to New York. With Tilly having a meltdown over the move, Madison and Dominic get into a fight that changes the entire nature of their relationship, causing Madison to ask herself a big question. Can she let him go?

Four hours trapped in a car with an almost six-year-old and a man you’re barely talking to is the definition of living hell. Okay, that might be a bit dramatic, but between the, “Are we there yets,” and the palpable tension, I spent most of my time wishing I’d taken the train.
Dominic and I were keeping things civil, but it didn’t feel real. It was the fake kind of politeness that meant the atmosphere stayed pleasant for Tilly’s sake, but lurking underneath was a fight waiting to happen. Or if not a fight, at least an excruciatingly uncomfortable conversation.
When Dominic dropped me at my parents’ house, I sprung out of the car as if I’d been launched from a catapault.

Lol, yay for run-on sentences! That's all for today, but don't forget to come back on Tuesday when you'll get the first glimpse of the If I Let You Go cover!
