Finding Parker by Scott Hildreth
“Life’s greatest treasures will never be held, purchased, or bartered for. They will only be felt.”
Parker Bale has is a gentlemen is all respects. After graduating college and beginning the exhausting search for a job, he’s offered employment, unlimited expenses, and a new BMW by an extremely wealthy eccentric stranger. His new job?
Finding a woman to love. Not a particular woman, but he must look in a particular place. And he must sign a contract. Eagerly, he signs the contract without reading it.
Victoria Fisker’s father died immediately after her birth. Her bed-ridden mother’s addiction to pain pills requires her to be at home every moment she isn’t working as a prep cook. She has never been in love, nor does she feel loved at home. She doesn’t particularly trust people, has no faith in the male species in general, and lives a quiet life keeping to herself.
When Parker meets Victoria, he’s immediately intrigued by her lack of interest in people and her comfort in being alone. Victoria, on the other hand, only recognizes Parker as being a male and believes therefore he can’t be trusted.
Finding Parker’s characters embark on a journey. A journey in which they soon realize they’re finding love where they least expect it. Love for friends, love for family which may not be blood related, and for that one person…
The one who gives you reason to believe for the first time love just may actually exist.

“Ask yourself through the course of each day, if this were my last day on earth, would I do anything different?”
“Live every day as if you’re going to die at midnight…”
“The greatest rewards in life are provided to those who take the greatest risks…”
“One moment of unwelcomed silence is more disheartening than a lifetime of incessant screaming…
And the silence deafens me…”
