Brayden and Maggie have been dating for four years. Maggie is ready and expecting an engagement ring. Brayden has a past full of weaknesses and mistakes he can’t seem to shake. As he slowly loses everything, he also loses Maggie.
As his world unravels, can he find the strength to shake his inner demons? Does he have it in him to face the ghosts of his past? Can Maggie overcome his deceptions? Will they find a way to love and trust again? Can their love and relationship be salvaged?
While Maggie’s parents are here, I need to talk to her dad. The ring I recently purchased is never far from my mind. I want to get this right, make all her dreams come true.
I finally get a moment alone with him at Ryder’s house. I pull out the ring as I begin our talk.
“Mr. Lawson, you know how much and how long I have been in love with your daughter. I know I have made some mistakes. I have learned from them and through it all my love for Maggie has grown even stronger. She is my better half, truly and I want to make her my wife. Do I have your blessing in asking your daughter to marry me?”
He doesn’t say anything for the longest time. This makes me very uncomfortable, so I begin to ramble.
“Mr. Lawson, I know I am not worthy to even have Maggie as a friend, much less anything more after what I have done. I never deserved someone as precious and loving as Maggie in the first place. The thing is, sir, you told me when the time came I would know whether to follow my heart or my head. Well, I am following both. My heart loves that woman with every breath inside of me. My head knows she is good for me, keeps me focused on doing right. So sir, I am not only asking, I am begging you to give this your blessing.”
I know I sound like a complete pussy begging this man for permission to propose, but damn it I know Maggie will ask me if I got her dad’s blessing. If they don’t support the engagement Maggie will walk away from me for good and I know it.
Harold smiles at me, “Son, yes I know you love my daughter. We have all made mistakes you need to let go of that. You are a good man, deep inside you there are issues you have to face daily. You fight those battles just to be with my princess. You have always wanted to take care of her. I think you have worked really hard to straighten out your mess, Brayden. And Son, yes you have my blessing to marry my one and only daughter.”

About the Author
Chelsea Camaron was born and raised in Coastal North Carolina. She currently resides in Southern Louisiana with her husband and two children but her heart is always Carolina day dreaming. Chelsea always wanted to be a writer, but like most of us, let fear of the unknown grab a hold of her dream; she realized that if she was going to tell her daughter to go for her dreams, that it was time to follow her own advice. Chelsea grew up turning wrenches alongside her father, and from that grew her love for old muscle cars and Harley Davidson motorcycles, which just so happened to inspired her ‘Daddy’s Girls’ series. Her love for reading has sparked a new love for writing and she currently has a few more projects in the works. When she is not spending her days writing you can find her playing with her kids, attending car shows, going on motorcycle rides on the back of her husband’s Harley, snuggling down with her new favorite book or watching any movie that Vin Diesel might happen to be in. She hates being serious and is still a big kid at heart. She is a small town country girl enjoying life and, Chelsea hopes that her readers remember not to take life too seriously and to embrace your inner five year old, because five year olds know how to enjoy the simple things in life and how to always have fun.
