About If We Were Young
Ronnie Childs has questions.
What if she’d said “yes” to Matthew Carling that day?
Why does he now hate her with a chilling iciness that numbs her bones and makes her heart ache?
Is it possible to still be the same as you once were when everything has changed so much?
How can they work together to save their companies when they can’t even hold a civil conversation?
So many questions and so little time to discover the answers.
Once Ronnie and Matthew were best friends, but time has moved on and those memories are now locked in the shadow of the past. Things would be so different if they were young, but sometimes the answers to life's challenges aren't always as straightforward as they seem.
Fifteen years have passed by in a blink.
Will fifteen days be enough to make things right?

An Excerpt from If We Were Young
I suspended breathless and shivering as we swiped and dove, pushing and pulling, our teeth clashing with the delicate clink of silver against a china teacup.
I was the teacup and I had taken myself close to smashing.
I’d do it to myself though. No one else would get to take me there. This would be on me. If I could take my heart and give it bravely, without fear of consequence, then I’d own the repercussions. I could blame no one else.
On a backwards count from three, I broke my lips from his. His breath rasped with a ragged edge, reaching into my mouth and pulling me closer. “I have a theory.”
“Oh, you do?” I almost melted at the deep burr of his tone.
“It’s that some things are meant to be perfect. Some of us are designed to fit together just so: big and small; tall and short; black hair, blonde. Perfect opposites.”
“I think you’re taking credit for my theories.”
I held my hand up. At dinner the other night he’d wanted me to say the words. Here they were.
I dug down deep, scraping them out of my scared and petrified soul. “If we don’t try then we will never know how perfect it could be.”
His smile liquified my insides. “Now she gets it.”
