About BREAKING WITHOUT YOU
Available April 16, 2019
From NYT bestselling author Carrie Ann Ryan, comes a brand new series where second chances don’t come often, and overcoming an unexpected loss means breaking everything you knew.
I fell for Cameron Connolly at the wrong time. And when he left, I thought my life was over. But then, after the worst happened, I truly understood what that phrase meant. Now, he’s not ready for a second chance, and I’m not offering one. Though given that our families have been forced together after losing one of our own, I know there’s no turning back. Not this time. Not again. Not when it comes to Cameron.
I never wanted to hurt Violet Knight, but there were reasons I had to leave all those years ago—not that she’d believe me if I told her what they were. I not only left her, I also left my foster brothers. Honestly, I didn’t want to come back to Denver to help run my father’s failing brewery. But when it comes to my brothers, I know I’ll find a way to make it work. Perhaps I’ll even earn Violet’s forgiveness and face the connection we both thought long forgotten in the process. Because I wanted her then, but now I know I need her. I just hope she needs me.

A couple of hours later, I felt the hairs on the back of my neck stand up.
I knew it was her before I heard her voice.
Violet was here. And so were the others.
I hadn’t known that they came to this bar. I hadn’t seen them since I came back to town, but here they were, in my place.
“I got this,” I said to Beckham as I went over to where Violet, Sienna, and Harmony were sitting.
“Hey.” I stuffed my hands into my pockets, wondering if I could be more of an idiot. Probably.
“Hi,” Sienna said, kind of smiling. The expression didn’t really reach her eyes, but I didn’t blame her. Everything was still so raw and emotional for them. Violet’s little sister felt things strongly. She always had, even when we were younger. I didn’t know how she felt about Allison.I didn’t know how any of them were feeling. Hell, I didn’t know how I was feeling about Allison.
But I was glad that they were here, even if it confused me.
“It’s good to see you, Cameron,” Harmony said softly. She grinned, but like Sienna, it didn’t reach her eyes. Damn it. I wished I could help these three, but I was already out of my depth with so many other things, this would just make it worse for everyone.
I looked over at Violet, clearing my throat. “Can I get you ladies something to drink? To eat?”
“We’re here to make sure that the Connolly brothers know that we’re supporting the bar,”Sienna said when Violet didn’t reply.
I turned to Violet’s sister. “Really?”
“Of course. We’ve come in on and off over the years, but it’s been more off since we’ve been so busy with our lives. But that’s going to change. We need a new place to actually sit and drink that’s not our house with a bottle of wine. Because while that’s good, sometimes, you just need to get out. So you’re stuck with us. And we need booze. We need lots of fucking booze.”
Her eyes filled, and Harmony reached out and grabbed her friend’s hand. I cleared my throat and nodded.
“So, what are we having?”
“Beer and shots,” Violet said.
My brows rose. “Really?”
“Do you think we can’t handle it?”
I met Violet’s gaze and shook my head. “I think you can handle just about anything, Violet.” I regretted the words as soon as they left my lips. “I know what you guys like. I’ll be right back.”
Then I walked away, wondering if I really knew anything at all.
Because, right now, it felt like I was nothing.
