A Sneak Peek of Meant to Be

Well it’s official, I had to push back the release day of Meant to Be. I am now hoping for it to be ready in March. I have a very talented art major hard at work creating the best book cover possible for Meant to Be. Unfortunately, like writing a book, good artwork takes time, which has delayed the February release date I was shooting for. For being so patient, I am giving all of you a sneak peek into Meant to Be. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. Over the next few weeks, I will continue to add more little peeks into Meant to Be. Thanks for all of your patience and support.

Meant to Be

By: Tiffany King

The dream was as familiar as always, but that didn’t keep my heart from practically beating out of my chest from the anticipation of seeing him again. The bright moonlight overhead, and the lights from the amusement park in the distance, provided just enough light to see him waiting for me. I couldn’t help the smile that tugged at the corner of my mouth as I slowly walked toward him. The hard packed wet sand crunched under my bare feet as I walked along the tide line. I could feel the cold water lapping over the top of my feet, reaching my ankles. The fact that I have never seen his face didn’t diminish the intimacy that has blossomed from the many nights we have spent together. There was a subtle, cool breeze off the ocean that might have chilled me if not for his warm embrace that comforted me like a down blanket on a cold winter night. I hoped against hope that the new twist of the dreams was a fluke, and that tonight would be different. I felt his fingers tighten around mine, and I tried with every bit of strength I had to hold on, but the invisible force yanked him away like a kite in the wind, and in an instant, he was gone.

I woke to a damp pillow from the tears I had shed while dreaming.

The dream had changed over the last few weeks and I could hardly control the sorrow that filled me when I awakened. I didn’t understand why, after dreaming about him my whole life, the dreams were now different. What was this mysterious force that suddenly pulled him away, leaving me all alone in the darkness?

More to come 😮 …..

    Tiffany, I really want to read this book! I can already tell it’s going to be fabulous, the sneak peeks are killing me!

    This last passage I could almost step right into; the feel of the water, the night, the breeze, her heartbeat and anticipation followed by the sorrow…. Girl, you can write!
    There’s always 2 things that I have to have when I review a 5 heart book on my blog and that’s world building and character description. You’ve got it!
