But I make an exception for the Marine who lives next door. The one who hears me crying and knocks on the wall separating us, making sure to let me know I’m not alone.
He’s too much for me. Too smart. Too hot. Too damn intrusive.
I know it’s only temporary, but I can’t stay away.
When the past comes crashing into the present and threatens the future, Cole gives me a reason to fight… but that fight is gonna cost me everything.
This is Casper & Cole’s story.

Rue loves to torture her readers. She smiles while ripping out their hearts with her words. Then she finishes off the torment by holding their hearts in her hand with a straw punched through the top and a few pieces of fruit and a little umbrella while she plots new and inventive ways to make her readers love to hate her.
You know the stories Rue loves to write. The ones filled with heroes who make you swoon, anti-heroes who smile viciously as the world burns down around them, just as long as the woman they love stands at their side… Then there are the happily ever afters that bring you to your knees whether you want to be there or not.
If you can’t find Rue sitting in her office or on the deck staring at the trees, she might be found curled up in a blanket in the middle of the summer or hiding in plain sight in a bookstore while she enthusiastically chats up strangers like its her job.
