Losing her the first time damn near killed me.
We were kids then, crazy in love.
Her dad found out, and just like that I was shipped back to college early.
No goodbye, nothing.
After that, I always found an excuse to stay away.
Nothing short of my dad’s cancer could’ve brought me back to town.
Now I find out I have a child, one that was kept a secret from me.
I’m pissed. I’m hurt. I’m confused.
And I can’t get Ari off my mind.
The woman she’s become, so beautiful and strong.
An artist who put her life on hold to support her child—our child.
All those years ago, we broke each other’s hearts.
We lost everything.
Can we ever get it back?
Is it too late for a second chance with my first love?
Or will Santa bring me everything I’ve ever wanted this Christmas?
