Carrie Malone has seen enough heartbreak to last a

lifetime.

Her

family’s demons gave Carrie the courage to move away from home and leave her past behind. Now a

college senior, she stays busy with her classes and her job at the diner. It may sound boring to some, but

to Carrie, the very best thing about her new life is that every day is calm and blissfully

uneventful.

That all changes the night Josh Bennett walks into her diner.

With his dirty designer

suit and mud-caked shoes, Carrie’s not sure what to think about the broken man sitting at her counter.

She’s even more confused when he doesn’t touch his coffee . . . and leaves his Rolex watch as a

tip.

Josh Bennett has nothing to live for.

Starved for affection and deep in despair, he’s looking

for a tender touch. A kind word. A giving heart.

A shattered and broken Josh finds himself standing on a

city bridge, looking down into the freezing river that will undoubtedly bring an end to his

pain.

He’s prepared to jump.

He’s prepared to die.

He’s not prepared for the pretty waitress who finds him there by the water’s edge.

When two lost souls find

each other in the dark of the night, can they give each other a reason to breathe

again?

Cold November air nips at my bare fingers, and I mutter a curse. Leaving my

gloves at home isn’t the dumbest thing I’ve done lately, but it’s close.

You should’ve let Tony drive you home.

Pulling my jacket tighter around me, I quicken my pace. It’s just a few blocks

between the diner and my apartment, but the cold air makes it feel like miles.

Flurries start to swirl, prompting me to walk a little faster. I’m just making my way

across the Hart Street Bridge when something catches my eye.

A man’s standing next to the concrete barrier, looking down into the frigid water

below.

I stop.

Without a backwards glance, he places one leg over the

edge.

My heart pounds in my chest. “No!”

His head jerks up, and there, under the lights of the city, my eyes lock with the

man who left his watch on my counter.

I’m paralyzed.

So is he.

Thank God.

People keep walking. Cars keep moving. But my eyes remain fixed on the man

straddling the concrete barrier—the only thing that’s keeping him from plunging into the icy river below

us. I don’t know his name. I don’t know why he’s dressed like a beggar, and I certainly don’t know why

he left his Rolex on my counter.

But in this moment, none of that matters.

I make sure the street is clear before walking across, keeping my movements slow

as I approach him. The last thing I want to do is freak him out. For now, one leg is still on this side

of the barrier, giving me hope that maybe he doesn’t really want to die tonight. Needing the support it

provides, I hold onto the cold concrete and pray I say the right thing.

“What are you—”

“Leave me alone, Carrie.”

The fact that he’s coherent enough to remember my name gives me even more

hope. But his voice . . . it’s raw and tinged with so much sadness that it nearly breaks my

heart.

“What are you doing?”

“It’s none of your business. Go away.”

“No.”

His eyes flash with anger.

“Screw you.”

“Don’t jump and maybe I’ll let you.”

It’s a ridiculous thing to say, but I’m desperate. He’d never survive the fall, and I

already have enough guilt in my heart to last a lifetime. I don’t need this on my conscience,

too.

The man blinks rapidly, as if he’s trying to comprehend what I

said.

“Tempting, but trust me. I’m not worth

saving.”

“I don’t believe that.”

“Believe it,” he whispers. “Please, Carrie. Just . . .

go.”

I shake my head and take a step closer.

Keep him talking.

“I don’t even know your name. You know mine. That’s not

fair.”

He looks surprised. “You don’t recognize me?”

“Should I?”

“Wow. That’s . . . refreshing, actually.”

I glance around. Surely someone has noticed us and called the cops by now. But I

don’t hear sirens, so I keep talking, hoping the man will come to his

senses.

I offer him my hand. “My name is Carrie Malone. What’s

yours?”

“Josh Bennett.”

The name sounds vaguely familiar.

“Nice to meet you, Josh. Now, would you please place both legs on this side of

the barrier before I have a heart attack?”

Josh looks down into the river.

“Please? Let me call your family.”

It’s the wrong thing to say.

“My family’s dead, which is exactly what I should be. What I want to

be.”
