9781453849583: Once Wild (Breaking Out Series, Book One)

Reckless in his youth, Shaun MacGregor was never one to care about what people thought of him. But then he returned to the small coalmining town of Ashland, Pennsylvania after serving eight years in prison, and had a literal run-in with town socialite, Maria Bellicia. One night with Maria leads Shaun on a turbulent path to confront all the layers of his destructive past, and face all of the pain, guilt and regret that comes along with it. Each layer that Maria helps peel away reveals yet another adversary and complication that Shaun must either run away from, or fight against. As Shaun struggles to make the right decisions that will finally allow him peace of mind and approval as a citizen of Ashland, Shaun is catapulted to an ultimate crossroad where he must face the biggest obstacle of his life: flee Ashland once and for all, or stay and fight for the only woman who has shown him true love and acceptance.

From the Author:

I like to think that my novels are overpowered by the one thing that we all need to survive, let alone breathe and that is love - a touch, a feel that makes life seemingly bearable and worthwhile. For we all know, that in life there is pain, and in that pain we can eventually see and appreciate life. They go together, hand in hand as we're stripped down exposed so we can finally find happiness, honest love and ourselves. It is so basic, so simple, we choose not to see it or can't. Accept both - life and pain, embrace one....but be careful which one that is...and make the best of both, because when life hands you cherries we can sometimes swallow the pit and not even realize we're choking on it. Perhaps that isn't exactly how that saying goes, but if you know me you would understand.
Remember if you veer from that road less traveled, take your dreams, hold them tight and keep pressing on until you're there...no matter how treacherous or tormenting that path may be.

About the Author:

I like to think that my novels are overpowered by the one thing that we all need to survive, let alone breathe, and that is love--a touch, a feel that makes life seemingly bearable and worthwhile. For we all know that in life there is pleasure and pain but it is in that pain where we finally acknowledge and appreciate the life given. They go together, hand-in-hand. Every element stripped and exposed in who we are so then we are able to find our true happiness, honest love and ourselves. It is so basic, so simple, we choose not to see it or can’t. Accept both pleasure and pain and embrace one....however be mindful of the one taken but make the best of both, because when life hands us cherries, we sometimes swallow the pit and never realize we are even choking on it. Perhaps that isn’t exactly how that saying goes, but if you knew me you would understand. Remember if you veer from that road less traveled, take your dreams, hold tight and keep pressing on until you're there...no matter how treacherous or tormenting that path may be.
