Scard of Forever BANNER
Title: Scared of Forever (Scared, #2)
Author: Jacqueline Abrahams
Genre: New Adult Romance
Release Date: December 14, 2014
Every lie, no matter how small, has some degree of truth. Five months after moving to New York City, Emily is engaged to Blake Carson, future doctor and the man who she believes to be the love of her life. Until she starts to realize that the foundation upon which she’s building her future is based on a series of Blake’s self-serving lies. Blake can’t let her go. He can’t continue to deceive Emily, either. But Blake’s biggest problem is that he has to maintain the life he has become accustomed to, at any cost. And that means keeping his overbearing mother happy, and keeping Emily ignorant. Tyler Carson left New York City two years ago, happy to leave behind all of the Carson family drama. Until he comes home and meets Emily. Falling in love with his brother’s fiancée was easy. Protecting her from his family was necessary. Leaving her was almost impossible, knowing that he was breaking her heart, and his own. Finding solace in her friendship with Tyler, Emily is forced to face the reality that Blake is not the man she thought he was. But neither is Tyler, the friend who gave her the clarity she needed, and then left her alone to pick up the shattered pieces of her life. Heartbroken and deserted, Emily has had enough of the Carson brothers. But sometimes, love is not that which sends us soaring, but that which keeps us grounded. Can Emily ever bring herself to love another Carson completely? Secrets, lies and lust-filled nights, all in the name of the screwed-up pursuit of happily ever after, Scared of Forever is the second novel in the Scared Series, which features characters from Scared of Beautiful, but can be read as a standalone.

The Scared Series started out as one book. One little love story, all on it's own. It started out as a first draft in the months after I had just discovered New Adult as genre, and had fallen in love with reading it. Having started a YA paranormal novel, I abandoned that and moved to the manuscript that would become Scared of Beautiful. I started it, got to 16000 words, and there she sat, on my PC for six months. Until a friend volunteered to read it, and like the awesome muse that she was, hounded the crap out of me till it was done! I like to write organically, so I really didn't have an outline. All I knew was that there must be love, there must be pain and there must be happily ever after. There must be a man that I conjured up in my dreams, and a woman who, like me, is a little awkward. And they must fall in love in a way that renders them incapable of breathing without the other. And when I had published Scared of Beautiful, one night while drinking one too many ciders, I thought, 'I could do a series of love stories, all unique, each one examining the life and loves of two different people. I could write happily ever afters forever!' And I was sold. And then I did a happy dance. And honestly, I don't know how I lived before I wrote. It's the most amazing job in the world. And that's the story of the conception of the Scared Series, a series written under duress with the help of one too many ciders ;)
