I found it (him) at the bookstore.
He was six foot four, lanky, blue-eyed.
Jacob Decker was goofy, handsome, and cheesy.
There’s no better way to describe him.
But what can I expect of an eighteen-year-old boy who’s lived under a rock all his life?

I’ll let you into a little secret.
I had no idea what to expect.
We were each other’s first everything.
But the fantasy lasted only a semester.

Soon I had to move away.
A few years later, he was a rockstar, and I was…
Grasping for a lifeline.
The problem with first loves is that they never leave you.
But they never come back, do they?

EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT: Somehow Everlasting Duet

A heartbreaking new romance duet is coming next week from Claudia Burgoa, and I have a little sneak peek for you from the first book in the series. Both books are releasing on the same day.

We head to the studio. I stay outside and Ainsley whispers, “Ana come inside.”

I don’t want to do it. I know what’s there. I can feel him.

In my mind, this moment would never happen. Not in a million years. Jacob Christian Decker and I live in different dimensions and the portal to jump from one to the other broke years ago. Adrenaline pumps through my veins. The rush of excitement, panic, and hurt for that girl who once loved him swirls around my body, creating a dizzy spell.

Jacob’s taller than I remember. His hair is still long, but darker. Those formerly vibrant blue eyes of his now hold a hard, cold gaze. They are lost. The friendliness and tenderness they radiated all those years ago are absent. I stare deeper inside them, looking for Jace, but he’s not there. My heart cracks a little more for that lost boy.

In his place, there’s a hot stranger. His broad shoulders, sculpted arms, and ravishing body captivate me. There’s a man I don’t know.

Does he watch the stars when the sky is clear?

He retired and stopped pursuing his dream of being the most famous rock star. Now he screws women while getting drunk. Maybe he’s like Matthew and humps interns against his desk.

As we stare at each other, a couple of emotions flicker from those blues—pain, hope, rage. A lost Jacob shows his face, but it leaves immediately.

“Jacob, meet Ana. Ana, this is my brother. He needs a lot of help.”

He clears his throat. “Ana.” One cold word comes out of Jacob’s lips.

My heart beats fast, as fast as he can strum his guitar when he’s playing a solo at a concert. I’m such a groupie. Expectantly, I watch him. My glance lands on his full, delineated lips, and I wait for him to say something.

“You remind me of someone.” Jacob tilts his head and scans my entire body, assessing me, or measuring how many words it might take for him to break me and have me crying if he continues using that hurtful tone.

“What was her name?” He snaps his fingers and looks around as if he’s recalling a name. “No idea, sure it never mattered.”

He’s upset at me? The nerve. I rub my arm as I search for the emergency exit.

“Thank you, Ainsley.” I have trouble finding the words to express my gratitude.

She has done so much for me. I appreciate everything and how much I love her and will miss her. She’s the best friend I’ve ever had—Maeve and I are doomed.

“For everything. I think this idea of yours is incredible, but it won’t work. I can find you the right person for it, though. Reliable, discreet, and all the great things you expect to fix the bad publicity…” Don’t call me, ever.

Then I bring out my attitude because I have something to say. “Pria. The name was Pria, Jacob. Short for Cipriana. I might’ve changed my nickname, but you…” The rest I want to say doesn’t come out. Ana would never speak that way. “You might want to consider a brand-new personality for him, Ainsley. Rehab might come in handy.”

I storm out of the building and text Maeve immediately. 

Pree: The job isn’t going to work.

Maeve: What happened?

Pree: Jacob Decker. I’ll be late tonight, want anything from the grocery store?

Maeve: Hurray, we’re getting drunk and going into a sugar coma. Bring ice cream cones. Tomorrow is going to be a bitch.

She sounds happy, but what she can’t understand is that our relationship with Ainsley is over. She’ll probably lose her job and I… what are we going to do?
