Book Excerpt

“Grey? What’s wrong?” Shelby whispered. Greyson had become like a caged animal and he was about to explode.

“Grey, it’s me, talk to me. I want to help you if I can,” she whispered.

“I am not like you, Shel!” Greyson yelled at her. Shelby hated when people raised their voice at her. That was one of her pet peeves. If she could manage to stay composed when upset, then so could everyone else. But she knew that right now what Grey needed was to let it out. “How can you forgive them? How can you act like nothing has happened? You know I will never know my own mother? Think of the finality of that word. Never,” he finished still pacing. Shelby was not sure if he was done and got her answer when he started to talk again. “I love BOTH of them, they are Momma and Daddy. But I hate them at the same time and I do not know if that will ever change. My wife is a cheater, my kids are not mine and then I find out that my mother is not mine either and I will never know the woman that is, thanks to my father deciding to play God. I am finding that I can trust no one in my life,” Greyson said finally melting into tears as he sank into one of the plush “couch” chairs in the sitting area. Shelby rushed to her brother’s side and wrapped her arms around him. “Oh, Grey! I am so so sorry! I feel so terrible with all that has been going on. I didn’t even think to ask you how things are going with you and Leslie,” she said.

Greyson cried for a little bit and Shelby could feel his pain and anger releasing from him. She knew he needed to do this; she had needed it too. Luckily for her, she had Logan and he had been her rock through all of this. Logan was amazing to, and for, her. Thinking of how happy Logan made her made Shelby wonder how happy she was making him. Probably not very, considering that she hardly saw him and when they were together, she was preoccupied with either work or the family. She had to admit to herself that she had not made him a priority lately.

“How things are going is that my divorce will be final in a week. My soon to be ex-wife was sleeping with my best friend the majority of our marriage and I am not allowed to see the children that I thought were mine for the past three years because it turns out they are not mine and I have no rights to them. Top it off with my father and mother lying to me about my identity my whole life. My biological mother being dead and the mother that raised me pumped five hot ones in my father’s ass and I think you can say that is the shit sundae that is my life,” Greyson said sitting back in the chair.
