Crossroads (Finding my Way 2) by Megan Keith
Release day: September 13, 2013
Nick is about to head overseas on an adventure of a lifetime. It’s what he has always wanted, to travel the world, to experience new cultures, see the places he’s dreamed of for so long. He should be over the moon. Instead, he’s been in a slump ever since he lost his friend Em.
Nick is a player, always has been. The first time he ever wanted more from a girl he was shot down. So now he’s left licking his wounds. Emma made her choice and now Nick has to live with it.
Or does he? When he finds out that Emma is single after all, will he fight for her? Will he be able to convince her to give him a chance? And if he does, what will happen when he leaves?
Nick has reached a crossroads in his life - the girl or the dream. Seems like an easy choice when the girl of his dreams is Emma. But what if she doesn’t see things the same way?

Please note: This is the continuation of Finding My Way. The first book must be read for any of this story to make sense.
After Finding My Way, we are now left at the “crossroads” of a love that may or may not be able to overcome. Em tries her best to hold on to the love she has for Nick. However, Nick has a hard time allowing that love to overcome the obstacles of things that he never thought would be obstacles.
These two have to face hard reality in having your dream may not be all rainbows and butterflies. Sometimes in life, the hard decisions aren’t made easily. These two have been through so much to not get everything they want. But you are lead into having the question of them possibly not wanting the same thing? Or maybe they are a little delusional about how things can work out. Either way, you are left with your gut twisting and your heart swelling for these two characters. Taking the evolving journey of these two characters growing and learning about themselves, their wants, and their love is a journey you won’t regret taking.
My heart starts to race at the sound of his voice over the loud speaker. Immediately I seek out the location of the booth and spot him as he walks out of it. He looks good. I can’t believe he’s here. I know my eyes are bugging out of my head but I can’t stop staring. Not only is Nick the DJ tonight but there he is, in my direct line of sight with his arms around a girl. And she’s very attractively smiling up at him.
“I’m sorry Em!” Kat yells in my ear. “I swear he was not the DJ listed to play, you saw the posters outside the club too.”
I swipe at my eyes as angry tears form in them. She’s right, we had both checked. There must have been a cancellation or something, it’s the only explanation. I stand still as a statue as I watch Nick put his arm around the girl’s shoulder and they head for the exit.
“Em.” Kat’s pulling on my arm. “Please look at me.”
When I can no longer see Nick, I turn to face her. The look on her face is a mixture of pity and pleading.
“Who’s for another drink?” I ask with false cheer. I don’t wait for a reply from either of the girls as I hastily make my way to the bar. I shove my way to the front, not caring about the toes I’m stepping on or the rudeness of my approach. I don’t care that I am cutting in line. I yell out my order for a shot of tequila. Before I’ve even paid, I have drunk it and ordered another. Kat spins me back to face her.
“I’m sorry Em. I swear I didn’t know.”
I turn away from her. I feel the hot tears about to overflow from my eyes as I hand over my money to the bartender and swallow my second shot. I look Kat square in the eyes.
“I want to go home.”
