Whether you admit it or not, you know when your relationship is in trouble. The changes start slow, and subtle. For instance – your favorite shirt was ‘accidentally’ ruined in the wash, and, more often than not – your spouse is working late at the office.
Then the subtlety starts to wear off and cell phones become more guarded than Fort Knox. Your favorite sexual activity has gone from Slap & Tickle – to Hallway Sex. (HALLWAY SEX: When you pass each other in the hallway, and the conversation consists of… “Fuck you”, “Bite me”, “Asshole”, and finally, depending on where you live, it usually climaxes with either “Cunt”, or “Bitch”.)

Brandon & Hollie are going through a rough patch right now. Somewhere deep down, they still love each-other. But, what’s love got to do with it? (It is a second-hand emotion after all.)
Brandon was ready to do whatever it took – anything to rekindle that spark, and mend whatever is broken. He was ready, until he discovered that what was broken between them is his trust.
Luckily, now there is time to talk.
Broken & bleeding inside the wreckage from the accident, Brandon is going to get the answers that he dreads hearing – but HAS to know.

This is a very uncomfortable story. You’ll be able to see yourself in both characters, cringing as details continue to be uncovered. Then, when you think the tension has peeked – WHAMO! Matt punches you in the gut with a twist that comes out of nowhere, just like the deer that caused the accident.

This is one of the titles that Matt has permanently knocked down to 99¢, even with the sexy new cover art. This story will stick with you a lot longer than that coffee you’re thinking about, and too much caffeine is bad for you!
