Especially when she has all of Jax Hollinsworth’s attention giving her encouragement.
He’s always been everything she’s wanted in a man. But Arabella has been too scared to make a commitment.
Kate agrees to meet so I can explain what happened, why I distanced myself, but I’m not sure how to put it all into words.
