Blog Tour ~ Pieces of Broken Time by Lorenz Font
Although Blake seems determined to keep her at arms’ length, Jennifer recognizes the beauty that lies beneath his scars and confronts him with the truth.

Blake loathed hospitals. After his prolonged confinement in Germany then
Walter Reed, he’d vowed to stay away from them every chance he got, but,
looking at Jennifer’s wound, his resolve flew out the window. He tried
driving within the speed limit, but found it impossible. He kept
unconsciously pressing the accelerator until he registered the unbelievable
speeds of the blurring scenery.
He glanced at Jennifer several times, but found it cumbersome trying to
drive with one good eye and keep watch over her at the same time. She
hadn’t said anything except for the few times he saw her flinching.
“Are you in pain?” His question came out sounding snippier than he had
intended. He’d been without company for some time, and he’d forgotten
about good manners and tact.
She didn’t look at him when she shook her head, but kept staring straight
Blake ground his molars in frustration.
Why can’t she just talk to me?
Because you’re an asshole.
What the hell am I supposed to say? I can’t do small talk.
Irritated with his own voices, he made another attempt with Jennifer.
“Look . . . if you’re upset because I didn’t give you a chance to decide for
yourself, it’s because I think you needed someone to look after you.”
Jennifer whipped her head sideways to glare at him, her mouth thinned in
a straight line. “So you assigned yourself the task? Thanks, but no thanks.
I’m done waiting for you to make good on your word to Trent. Just drop me
at the ER, and you can go on your merry way. Hide if you want. I don’t
care.” She went back to staring into the darkness ahead.
Blake was dumbfounded.
