Whatever Happens Next

Title: Whatever Happens Next

Series: Everyday Love #4

Author: Jaycee Weaver

Publisher: Sandia Sky Press

Release Date: May 12, 2020

Genre: Inspirational Contemporary Romance

Growing up in nowhere Oklahoma gave US Air Force vehicle maintainer TSgt Dyson what his momma calls itchy feet. His wanderlust has kept him from romantic entanglements for years, until the day an over-dramatic, strawberry-scented chatterbox slams into him and turns his world upside down.

Jenna Davis was a quintessential good girl, deeply rooted in her family and faith until one mistake three years ago changed everything. Unable to admit her failure, she goes through the motions watching everyone else live their dreams. But it’s hard to find her purpose when opening up to anyone—even God—feels impossible. Then she meets Dyson, who personifies the strong, silent type.

Dyson gets her to open up and begin dreaming again, rebuilding the trust she’s lost in men and especially in herself. But Dyson has something important to tell Jenna, and he knows it’ll be the end of everything they’ve built. After all, how can he ask her to leave everything and everyone behind when he can never stay?

The Everyday Love Series is a contemporary romance series set in Albuquerque, featuring ordinary people in lifelike stories that inspire, uplift, and share hope. Stories in which a very real God shows Himself in everyday ways to carry His people through any circumstance.

Heaven help him, but he wanted to know everything about this girl—er, woman. That look in her eye, the pain, the regret, the rejection. Been there. Felt that. He could share in all of those things with her. Like he’d done by telling her about his uncle’s car earlier, he could prove that he got it. Be a safe place for her.
He might not have all the words out loud, but he knew feelings, especially the deep ones that left scars. Even grease monkeys like himself didn’t escape military service without seeing too much at some point. Or know somebody who’d been through worse.
The errant thought sent a cold shiver down his back. Dyson breathed deep and dug deeper, praying silently for direction and the ability to provide comfort. The word repeated itself, and he knew there was no avoiding the next words he needed to utter.
“Jenna, can I pray for you?”
Her whole body went tight. He felt her retreat and read the confusion in her face for a millisecond until she relaxed and nodded with a small but hollow smile.
“That’d be great.”
She extended her other hand, and he gladly accepted it. Now holding both, he gave them a tender squeeze and mentally asked God for the words.
A few minutes later, he had no clue if they’d helped or not, but the experience had certainly buoyed his spirit. New and completely foreign, but not wholly uncomfortable. Dyson couldn’t remember ever having prayed with anyone else before, except in church.
It probably wouldn’t be like that every time but praying with Jenna’s hands in his made him feel more like a man than he’d ever felt before.
Yowza. Honey brown eyes, warm with compassion filled her mind every time she closed her eyes that night.
In all her years of naive church-girl idealism, she’d heard about the intimacy that comes from praying with someone. Never experienced it, but she’d heard enough to hold hope in her heart for a long time.
