The deepest heartache is the one you don’t see coming.
Golden couple, Sawyer and Quinn Denali, have an amazing love story. A match in every way, their happiness is evident to all who spend time with them. The arrival of twin baby girls completes their picture-perfect family.
When Quinn has the opportunity to help others on a two-week volunteer trip, she reluctantly leaves her family, knowing a short break from the demands of motherhood will be good for her.
She doesn’t expect the trip to change her life forever. But it does. It changes everything.
Struggling from day to day, the young family moves forward, finding happiness ... and love.
But fate isn’t done mixing things up in their lives. When an unexpected event leaves them all reeling, the unspoken question rings loudly and can’t be ignored: “What happens now?”
A Me and You Thing is a novel that explores the strength of enduring love and friendship.


Excerpt
SAWYER FACES ME as we lay in bed, snuggling the early morning minutes away before our eight-month old twin girls awaken. In spite of the background fuzz the baby monitor produces, the sound of the ocean and seagulls hit our ears through the open window. We love the fresh ocean breeze in our lungs all night.
“What are you doing?” I ask, wiping the sleep from my eyes.
“Watching you.”
“Is it entertaining?”
“Absolutely. The best thing I’ll see all day.”
He lightly brushes my lips with his own, and I scoot a little closer. Mmmmmm, five years of marriage and my attraction for this man has never waned. I never knew I could love someone so much. Even better, he feels the same about me. We’re far from perfect, yet we’re a perfect match for each other.
Frankly, that’s as perfect as love gets.
I bury my head in his warm chest, listening to the sound of his strong heartbeat. He hasn’t let himself go since we married. He runs every morning at unspeakable hours and, like a fine bottle of wine, ripens with age.
“Are you sure I should go on my trip? I’m consumed with guilt every time I think about it.”
I love our life together in our shingle-style two-story beach house on 5201 Beachcomber Lane. It’s a decent size home, even if it’s a little on the older side. No matter, I adore it. It might not be directly on the beach, but we have amazing ocean views from the second story. Close enough.
“You’ll be doing something important, Quinn, something that really matters. I love you for wanting to go, for wanting to help. Your passport arrived yesterday. See, it’s a sign. The universe just sent you a telegram.”
A light scoff emerges from me. He runs his hands through my longish blond hair. My brown eyes close while I enjoy his tender touch.
“What was I thinking? I don’t want to leave you or our babies.” “Hey, it’s only two weeks, sweetheart. In the scheme of things, that’s hardly any time at all. Besides, the Grandma Gang’s so excited, they’ve been ready to invade our turf for weeks now.”
His endearing term for our mothers makes me giggle. “Be afraid. Be very afraid.”
He kisses my forehead lightly. “Hey, my knees are already shaking.”

Praise for the Book
“Wow! This heart-tugging romance blew me away. It’s an emotional roller-coaster ride of epic proportions … so prepare yourself. My heart soared up into the heavens, then was dragged into the bitter misery of hell, like being dragged behind a pickup truck for a mile or so. Ouch! But I got my happy (actually, glorious!) ending, so I loved it. The ending was so much more fulfilling because of what my heart went through to get there with the characters. This story is unique and refreshing - not your run-of-the-mill predictable romance that doesn’t stick with you when you finish. No! This one is made of super glue, and will be stuck in your heart forevermore. ~ Author Charissa Stastny

“Hang on to your hearts with this one, friends, because it's a doozy of a ride!” ~ Aimee, Getting Your Read On
“Here's my recommendation. Don't read the summary. Don't read any more reviews. Order this book now! Clear your calendar and plan to spend the day reading. You'll be thanking me if you do.” ~ Kathy Habel
