Synopsis

Bring Me Home BN KoboClaire 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 family she shares with Chris.

Chapter Four

Claire

Right now, the only person who knows about the letter is Senia, and she insists that I need to respond. She thinks I need to meet my sister, Nichelle. Though Senia’s never said it, I think she’s just as worried as I am that Nichelle is in danger of being violated by her father the same way my mother was. Preventing something like that from happening is not a responsibility I ever thought I’d have placed on my shoulders. My soul is already buckling under the weight of my own responsibilities. But Senia is right. I need to meet Nichelle. I need to look in her eyes and see for myself that she hasn’t been broken the way my mother was.

“How did you feel when you were told your mother’s death may have been a suicide?”
Dr. Goldberg asks.

His face is kind and relaxed and his slightly messy crown of black curls combined with the brown sweater he wears makes me feel relaxed.

“I felt like I had just been told that my mother never loved me.”

“Do you still feel that way?” he asks as he continues to jot down notes.

“Sometimes.” He pauses for a moment and I take a deep breath before I continue. “My mother was raped.”

“By her uncle?”

“No, her uncle’s son also raped her when she was seventeen.”

He looks up from his notepad curiously. “Seventeen? That would have been three years after the alleged molestation by her uncle ceased?”

I hate that he always says alleged molestation. It makes me feel like we’re in a courtroom instead of an office.

“Yes. He’s my father.”
