One True Thing

Lynne Jaymes

Release Date: 
May 29, 2014



Can one true thing save a love built on lies?

“That was all before…” Jenna waves her hand

in the air, but we both know what she means. Before I touched her in the most

intimate places. Before I felt her shudder under my tongue. Before she tasted the

salt on my skin. Before I promised a lot more than I could deliver.

Ty Branch has wanted one thing his entire life—

to play professional baseball. When he gets a chance to move from San Francisco

to play at Texas powerhouse Garvin State University, he's willing to do whatever it

takes to make his dream come true, even if that means hiding his past. But when he

meets dance major Jenna Taylor, the chemistry is so strong his single-minded quest

begins to weaken. As he gets to know her quirky, small-town family, he falls more


in love, but becomes even more sure he can never

tell her the truth about his family. When a surprise visitor blows his past wide-open,

Ty is forced to come to terms with his secrets. But is the damage already done with

Jenna or can he find a way to sacrifice everything he's worked for in order to win

back the heart of a once-in-a-lifetime love?

“I’m glad it was you at the bar tonight Ty,” Jenna

says, looking up at me.

I glance down at the worn, grey carpet. “I’m

glad it was you too. I’ve wanted to talk to you all year.” What am I doing here? I

should tell her goodnight and walk away instead of standing here sounding like a

teenager at the prom.

“Really?” She looks like she’s trying decide if

that’s just a line. “Why didn’t you?”

I look back down and Jenna bites her bottom

lip just slightly in a way that’s both innocent and undeniably sexy.

“I just…” I can’t look at her anymore, so I

pull my eyes away and stare down the empty hallway. Why haven’t I spoken to

her in almost seven months? Because I’ve spent that time becoming someone new

and I can’t wreck all of that hard work. Because I’d have to tell her about all of the

things that I’ve kept hidden from everyone if we got involved. Because I’d have to be

honest with her—and right now I can’t be honest with anyone. “It’s complicated.”</ span>

“Oh,” she says vaguely and I know she doesn’t

understand. How could she? Jenna puts the key in her door. “Do you want to come in

for a minute? I’ve got a couple of beers in the fridge.”

I glance at my own front door down the hall.

The one I should be walking through right about now. “I should go…”

There’s no denying the disappointment in her

eyes when she looks at me and it’s painful to know what I could have if I just take

that one step forward.

“Okay,” Jenna says. She stands up on tiptoes

and bends toward me, her lips grazing my cheek. My head is filled with the soft,

powdery scent of her mixed with something deeper and sexier. “Thanks for the

ride.” She lifts one finger and draws it down my neck slowly and that’s all it takes for

me to lose every ounce of my resolve.

Before I can think about what I’m doing, I

bend down and kiss her so hard that I feel the breath leave my body as I press her

up against the door and lace her fingers through my own. I’m starting to get lost in

the kiss when the reality of what I’m doing hits me.

“I’m sorry,” I say, taking a step back from her.

The taste of her is still on my lips and I want more, so much more, but I can’t. It’s not


“Don’t be,” she says, grabbing my hand and

pulling me closer.

But I resist, glancing away because I know if

I look into her eyes I’ll lose every ounce of willpower I’m trying to summon. I can’t

believe I’m about to undo everything I’ve put together these past few months. But

Jenna is right here in front of me and she deserves to know the truth. “Listen…there

are some things you don’t know about me…”

She looks into my eyes and I’m caught. “An

STD?” she says boldly.

I wince. “No.”

“A felony? A girlfriend? A baby?”

I can’t help but laugh. In light of her guesses,

maybe it’s not such a big deal. “No. Nothing like that.”

She grabs both of my hands and pulls me to

her and every shred of resolve melts away. “Then I don’t care.”
