About Tomorrow by Abbi Glines (now available)
The first lie I told myself was that he was just an old friend. I wish it had been the only lie because the other lies would destroy us all.
I close my eyes as I hear him speak. I take one very long and deep breath hoping to calm the immediate butterflies that take flight in my stomach and hope to slow down the racing of my heart. The voice was slightly deeper but the timbre was one that was achingly familiar.
My actions did little to help, but then who was I kidding? A deep breath wasn’t going to fix the effect he had on me and my body’s inevitable reaction. Even the memories that would forever haunt me couldn’t keep my emotions from triggering at the nearness of him once again.
I used to pray that I’d find the strength to move on from him, from the pain that the end carried, from the emptiness in my chest, but ultimately move on from—the loss of Creed Sullivan and the death of his sister, Cora.
The Sullivans had been the best part of my summers in New England.
Deep down, I always knew my ache for all that I had lost was the reason I returned…
But I hadn’t expected to see him again—especially not like this.

Abbi has done it again with another steamy, emotional book! From the very beginning I was hooked on Sailor and Creed’s story with their past and the present. It begins with a brief introduction of the two during the summer when Sailor is visiting her grandma up in the north east. This particular summer is the one where Sailor and Creed’s relationship had started to evolve from a friendship to a romantic one.
The story picks up with Sailor going to visit her boyfriend in Boston while she’s one her way to move to have grandma’s house after she passed away. While Sailor is with Griff, his roommate’s cousin is someone who she tries not to think about because even though they had some good memories, he also walked away when she needed him the most.
After seeing Creed for the first time in years, it brings up so many things that she’s had to go to therapy for and learn how to cope after his sister (and Sailor’s best friend) died. Sailor has learned how to live life again without Creed and once she sees him it tilts her world off of its axis.
Once Sailor is safe and away from Creed (for better or worse) she starts to settle in to her grandmother’s house in New Hampshire during the cold months. She sees old faces that she knew during the summer months growing up and even gets a dream job at the local museum. The only thing that she didn’t expect happening was Creed moving into his parents old house right next door to Sailor’s grandma’s house.
Can Sailor and Creed build a new future together as friends or will the past constantly loom over them preventing anything new from growing? In this new book by Abbi, she delves into the lasting effects of death and how we never stop loving our first love. In this heart felt and steamy book, it will have your crying from cover to cover!
Creed had put on a pair of faded jeans and a vintage Def Leppard tee shirt but he’d not brushed his hair. It worked for him but then Creed was the kind of sexy that could wear anything and still turn heads. As a little girl, I’d loved playing with him and as a teenage girl I had fallen in love with him.
“Hello,” I said so softly- it was almost a whisper.
“Their coffee is shit,” he said as he walked toward the kitchen.
I turned my gaze back to the fire. Pretending like we were strangers was difficult. Once there had been so much I wanted to say to him. I’d wanted to ask him why? What had I done wrong? Why had he turned on me without a reason?
Now, he was here. We were in the same room and I had no words. I couldn’t think of one thing to say.
I heard him in the kitchen and as much as I wanted to not care that he was here my body was attuned to his every move. Maybe it was my nerves or uncertainty. It couldn’t possibly be more than that. His footsteps were soft and I realized he must be barefoot. The cold wouldn’t affect him like it did me. He was a New Englander.
He sat down in the chair across from the sofa and his gaze was on me. I didn’t want to look at him. The fire was less confusing and unsettling. I didn’t have to pretend with the fire. Creed however was a different story. How did he expect me to act like we were strangers when there was so much in our past?
