It’s so bad when you have to have it all together, when you’re supposed to be perfectly happy, when people look at you and say, “she’s so lucky”. But you know better than that. This story is exactly about that.
Begin with Me (Chaotic Love #1) by Claudia Y. Burgoa released last year in the Adult, Contemporary, Romance genre.
From the outside, Abby’s life looks like a fairytale. Loving family, wealthy lifestyle, education at a prestigious university. The truth? She’s barely managing to survive. Few know the nightmare she lived before she was adopted. And no one knows the secret agony that still haunts her nightmares.
With a degree from Berkeley, she could have gone anywhere, but she’s back in Colorado. Not for a fresh start—fresh starts are only an illusion—but for Wes Ahern. Her protector, who throws around words like “therapy” and “talk to me.” Her brother in every way but blood. The one man she wishes could be so much more.
Maybe, just this once, she can stop running from her demons.
But does she dare let Wes see inside the darkest closets of her pain…or will love be the biggest mistake of her life

“This is Johnson. The private investigator.”
I check the number and realize that it’s not Abby’s. My shoulders sag with relief. “What do you have for me?”
“I emailed you some basic information about Corbin Stanley. From what I can tell, Shaun Stanley doesn’t exist. Are you sure about the name?”
“He’s his child.”
“The man doesn’t have any children.”
“The deceased?” he asks. “I would have to dig for more information on her. That’s going to take more man-hours. You haven’t approved the quote yet.”
“I don’t care how much it costs. I need to find out whatever I can about this man and make sure he stays away from my girlfriend.”
“For protection, you’ll need a bodyguard. I have a good contact. If you want, I can send you some information. They’re pricey, but worth it.” He goes silent. “They might be able to help you more than I can on this particular case.”
“Why do you say that?”
“Stanley’s records are sketchy. I don’t have all the resources that this security company has. They can provide you with more intel and even protection.” He chuckles. “You can say that this is above my paygrade.”
I rub my chin staring at the police report. These people he mentioned might give me exactly what I need to protect Abby, and to keep this from ever happening again.
