It's funny how a piece of paper can change your life-a diploma, a ticket . . . a plain, white envelope

For as long as I could remember, I was the girl with the plan. Good college, good medical school, good career. I would save lives instead of standing by helplessly, watching while they slipped away.

That was before my father called for the first time in fifteen years to tell me about the terminal illness stealing his life-an illness that might be stealing mine, too. It was before he gave me the name of a doctor and a plane ticket to Italy. Before I flew across an ocean. Before I realized how brilliantly bright life could be. Before I met Lucas.

He's everything I've always wanted, and the timing couldn't be worse. I can't do this to him-he deserves so much better. My head tells me I can't afford to fall in love with Lucas, but my heart won't listen. Lucas is fearless about the future, while I'm not even sure I have one. There's only one way to know what's ahead and it's waiting for me at home inside a plain, white envelope.

All I have to do, is open it . . .

 Quand le destin fait des siennes…

 

***

 

– Ne me cherche pas, Jenna… grogne Thomas.

Il approche de nouveau ses lèvres de la peau tendre sous mon oreille.

– Petite chose susceptible, soupiré-je alors que sa langue humide m’envoie des signaux qui me font perdre la raison.

– Je pensais t’avoir montré l’étendue de ma petite chose tout à l’heure, rétorque-t-il.

Il sourit contre mon épiderme frissonnant, visiblement ravi de l’effet qu’il a sur moi.

– Justement, à ce propos…

– Je t’écoute, m’encourage-t-il tout en poursuivant sa douce torture.

– Prétentieux…

– Moi ? ricane-t-il innocemment, alors que ses doigts succèdent à sa bouche dans un frôlement envoûtant.

– La modestie t’étouffe.

C’est une morsure pas plus douloureuse qu’une piqûre de moustique qui répond à mon attaque délibérée, mais je tiens à garder l’avantage de cet échange.

 

***

 

Forte et déterminée, Jenna tient d’une main de maître le bar que son grand-père lui a légué. Dans sa vie, tout est bien réglé, au millimètre près.

Quand elle rencontre Thomas, garagiste le jour et chanteur de rock la nuit, elle est aussitôt bouleversée. Par sa voix, son charisme et sa gentillesse.

Alors que leur désir est réciproque, Jenna apprend une mauvaise nouvelle. La pire qui soit.

Quand la mort est une promesse, l’amour est la plus brève des étincelles…
