Annotation

Sadie To those who visit her library, Sadie is the outgoing, book-loving, fun librarian whom you can't help but love. But inside, she is lonely. For years, she has struggled with chronic headaches and migraines and can be so ill that she spends days in bed in a dark room. She realised a long time ago that people soon disappear when you often have to cancel plans and let them down. So, outside of work, she hides away, curls up with a good book and her faithful cat, and tries to ignore the growing loneliness that threatens to consume her. Jayden Jayden lives for the fast life. Fast cars, fast-growing businesses, and most importantly, fast-ending relationships. Jayden doesn't stay with the same person for more than a few weeks; he's still young and carefree and has no intention of ever settling down. He can't think of anything worse than the idea of staying in every night with one person; settling down is like a curse word to him. One day, he has to look after his niece and takes her to the local library, where he finds the gorgeous Sadie. Suddenly, finding every excuse to visit the library again just to see her. Can Jayden allow things to start slowing down so he can have Sadie by his side and help her when she needs him? Can Sadie stop hiding behind her condition and let herself live a little? Both face big changes in their lives, but is it going to be enough for them to accept each other's faults as the librarian falls for a playboy?

Chapter 1 - Jay

“Uncle Jay’s here!” my six-year-old niece calls as the front door flies open, and she jumps into my waiting arms.

“Hey, Alice, have you missed me?” I ask, kissing her cheek.

“Of course she has; it’s been a month, Jayden!”

I look to the doorway where my sister’s standing with her arms crossed over her chest.

“I’ve been busy, you know that.” I step up and kiss her cheek. “How are you, Trudy?” I ask whilst placing my niece back on the floor.

“Fine,” she sighs closing the door behind her. “Thank you for watching, Alice. I’m sure it’s cutting into your busy schedule.”

“Hey! What’s with the attitude? You know I’m happy to help.”

“Yeah, I know, sorry. I’m just stressed,” she squeezes my arm as she walks into the house. I follow her through the lounge and into the kitchen where she makes our coffees. I sit at the table and look through a pile of books.

“Alice wants to go to the summer book club this afternoon. Can you take those back for me as well, please?”

“Really? The library? Can’t I take her somewhere fun?” I sigh sitting back in my chair.

“The library is fun. You know how much she loves to read.”

“But it’s always full of boring old librarians who shush you at the slightest noise,” I moan running my hand through my hair. Trudy looks at me and laughs.

“When was the last time you went to the library? They’re nothing like that anymore. It’s Alice’s favourite place. Please don’t make her miss the book club, Jayden. She loves it.” When she gives me the puppy dog eyes, I know I’ve lost.

“Fine, I’ll take her. But when I have her again Thursday, we’re going to the zoo or something,” I groan as I pick up my coffee.

“Thank you. You never know you might enjoy the library,” Trudy smiles as she sits back and hugs her mug. I shake my head, look at the books, and turn my nose up.

 “I doubt that very much.”

Chapter 2 - Jay

“Come on, we’re going to be late!”

“All right, Alice, hang on,” I call as I rush around the car and take her hand before she drags me to the old-looking building. Just seeing the library makes me shudder. I’ve never liked this building. It’s always given me the creeps. It’s so dark and dingy inside. Mum used to bring us here every week until I was old enough to stand my ground and refuse.

“Are you sure you want to go inside? If you want new books, I’ll take you to the shop and buy you whatever you want,” I offer, hoping to deter her from making me go in there.

“But Sadie isn’t in the bookshop, and I want to see her, she’s fun! Now come on!”

I sigh as she drags me through the door, and I stop in my tracks.

The interior was grey, dull and faded when I was last here. What a contrast to how it looks now. Everything is bright and full of life. People are gathered, talking and laughing, and there is even a Costa coffee shop. I can also see a play area and … w
