‘Forbidden Love’ By Jamey O’Donnell

Forbidden Love is the story of Bill, a customer of the local hardware store who falls head over heels for Rosie, the owner, and shopkeeper of the store.
Bill has admired Rosie’s looks since before his divorce from his wife but never made an advance toward Rosie until his divorce became final.
After some sexual banter between Bill and Rosie one day in the store, Bill worked up the nerve to invite Rosie to dinner and was elated that she accepted.
From dinner, things accelerated at a rapid pace, and he found himself spending the night with Rosie in her home.
The following morning over breakfast, Bill was horrified at the sight of a familiar photo of a woman he had seen before, hanging on Rosie’s kitchen wall.
After some investigation of the photo, he makes a startling discovery and has to make a decision on how much further his relationship with Rosie should go.
