What Might Have Been

Available At: Totally Bound All Romance Ebooks Amazon Barnes and Noble

A second chance has never been this sweet or sexy.

Macy Shibley left Mason, Ohio to figure out who she was and what she wanted. But after more than a few disastrous relationships, she refuses to let anyone tie her down. She’ll control the tying, thank you very much. No man has ever managed to chip away the walls around her heart. Well, except one man.

Tanner Connolly never forgot his high school crush. The sweet blonde with the vibrant eyes fills his dreams and fantasies. He had a shot in school to make her more than a friend, but blew it for the sake of appearances. Now he’d like to know what might have been and use it to create a future. But can he let her go to prove he wants more than one night?

Contains steamy sex against a door, the creative use of sex toys, some harmless domination, and a little anal play for good measure.

 Remi and Berto have their own story told in Wendi's free read, From Picasso, With Love



Excerpt from

What Might Have Been

“Now, Miss Macy, our favourite free spirit, we have a surprise for you.”

“Really?” Macy scanned the crowd. When she noticed the photos of the class along the wall behind her, her breath caught in her throat. The words Most Likely to Disappear in a Crowd framed her picture. Her heart sank. Apparently the Class of ‘97 wasn’t about to let her forget her claim to fame—being counted as present in a class she skipped for an entire week because the teacher assumed she was there.

“Oh, you saw that.” Berto shrugged. “It’s just a stupid picture. Don’t let it bother you.” He pointed to another photo down the line. “See? Royce is still class brownnoser and Selene made the worst dressed list. Big deal. I’m still the Winter Fest Queen.”

She chuckled at the sight of Berto’s knobby knees and the elaborate toilet plunger staff he carried in the picture. “You’re right, your highness, but somehow I had this contrived notion that becoming an author and being a respected member of the community would override that image of me.”

“Hell yes, it does,” Remi replied over her shoulder. “We think you’re great and want to show you.”

When Macy turned to reply, she pressed her lips together. Next to Remi stood none other than, Tanner Connolly. Damn. She forced her gaze to remain on his face. If she allowed herself to glance at the rest of his body, he’d know she’d never quite forgotten him. The tips of her ears burned. Her breath caught in her throat and time slowed to a crawl. The world around her fizzled to nothingness.

His hair flopped over his forehead, no longer in the crew cut he’d worn during the football seasons. She longed to reach out and run her fingers over the silken strands. Although the perpetual dusting of hairs darkened his cheeks, the baby fat no longer remained. Laugh lines crinkled around his blue eyes and gave him a rugged appearance. Even in the dismal lighting, the sapphire in his eyes sparkled like always.

“Macy, darling, this fine gentleman wants your autograph.” Remi slapped Tanner’s back and grabbed her attention. “She’s all yours, but be warned, if you act like you did in high school, we’ll break your legs. We’ve never forgotten.”

A flush crept across Tanner’s bronzed cheeks. He dipped his head without muttering a word. Macy folded her hands to hide the trembling. Tanner met her gaze and grinned, turning her insides to warm goo—again. Dear God, how’d he do it? After fifteen years, he still held the power to make her nervous and turned-on. Her nipples hardened to points within her silky bra. Lust dampened her panties. She rubbed her thighs together to stave off the tingles. He could’ve been the one to make her settle down.

 “I think we need to get drinks. Mace looks parched.”

Snapped back to reality, Macy flicked her gaze to Berto. “Cola, please. No ice.”

“Yes, a drink would be great.” Remi winked at Macy before he and Berto strolled away. Tanner toyed with the plastic cup in his hands, running his index finger over the condensation on the side.

Although she fought the good fight, she still lost and allowed her gaze to wander down his body. The last fifteen years had been kind, if not downright wonderful to him. The navy button down shirt encased his broad chest and smooth muscle like a second skin. Even the faded denim hugged his toned thighs, leaving little to the imagination. If she remembered correctly, he had a tattoo of his football number on his right calf—seventeen.

“Like what you see?”


"A delightfully hot and passionate story of love lost and regained...a very hot story, and the scene where Tanner gives Macy complete trust and control is one of the best scenes in the book...beware, this one will suck you in and keep you wanting more" ~ Foxglove ~ Whipped Cream Reviews  Rated 5 cherries

"the sex was hot! if you are looking for a quick, sweet, sexy romance this is worth a shot." ~ review by: Stefani Clayton ~ Just Erotic Romance Reviews

"What Might Have Been is an incredibly sweet and sensual will they, won't they tale with some brilliant twists and turns. I was hooked from the beginning to end to find out what kind of ending these sassy and stubborn characters would get, and I wasn't disappointed. A lovely reunion tale from Wendi Zwaduk and one that I'd definitely recommend to fans of erotic romance." -
