When it comes to tattooed bad boys, Chase Gartner is the real deal. Partying, engaging in meaningless sex, getting into fights—Chase indulges in it all during his late teen years, thus firmly solidifying his status as a heartbreakingly gorgeous but way-too-dangerous-to-trust guy in his hometown of Harmony Creek, Ohio. Then, following one fateful night of reckless decisions, Chase’s actions finally catch up to him and land him in prison.

Now, four years have passed and Chase finds himself a free man. He returns to Harmony Creek, ready to pick up the pieces and start rebuilding his shattered life.

Things are off to a promising start when he meets Kay Stanton, a young woman with a tragic past of her own. Despite a powerful attraction, Chase and Kay are naturally hesitant to become involved. That’s why friendship feels like the safest option. But when passions ignite and love blossoms, a relationship that is destined and meant to be can only be resisted for so long. When Chase and Kay finally succumb to their feelings they realize being together feels more right and true than anything they have ever experienced.

But their love is soon tested. Chase’s wild past still haunts and tempts him, and Kay is keeping a secret that could tear them apart.

I Stand Before You is a journey of hope and forgiveness, coming to terms with the past and moving forward. But mostly it’s a story of two damaged people who take a chance, open their hearts, and find true love.

QUOTES FROM THE BOOK:

1)    “Maybe we aren’t so very different after all. There’s good and bad in both of us, and that’s what binds us together, for better or worse.”
Isn’t this true of everyone? No one is just all good or all bad. And the differences and similarities Chase and Kay learn about one another ultimately strengthens their bond.
***************
2)    “`Tell me, Chase. Tell me what I think I already know. Tell me what you’re feeling. I feel it too, I do.’
My slaughtered heart stitches back together, more solid than ever. `I love you,’ I whisper. `I love you so fucking much, baby girl.’”
It’s more than just Kay and Chase declaring their love, it’s also about healing.
****************
3)    “We both still, lips touching, breaths shared. This is what we are, two broken people who when connected are made whole, made right. I feel this everywhere, my body, my heart, my soul.”
Chase and Kay…in love. *sigh*
******************
4)    “My tats were but temporal attempts to heal my soul, as my heart remained an open wound.”
Chase trying to find something, anything, to lessen the pain of losing his father.
