She’s the one woman I’d give anything to forget—and now I’m stuck living with her.
My stubborn sister moved Mira into our cabin despite my protests. I’m making a fresh start in Lake Tahoe, and I’ll be damned if I move out on Mira’s account.
Unfortunately, nothing has changed in the years since I last saw Mira. Her tempting body and smart mouth taunt me daily. The only hope I have at keeping my sanity is the knowledge that Mira is hiding something.
Sooner or later I’ll discover Mira’s secret. And knowing her, it’ll be damning.
But first, I have to ignore the urge to kiss and touch and make Mira mine again.
Once the walls come down, emotions run high. Grab this sexy, second-chance romance!
I grab her waist, guiding her back against the shelves.
She kisses my cheekbone, nibbles my earlobe. “We can’t do this here.”
That nibble shoots straight to my groin. “I beg to differ. I think we can manage.”

What respectable guy could say no to that? Yeah, she was my best friend. But she was also the hottest chick I've ever known. I thought it would be simple. I thought we'd have a good time, then pretend like it never happened.
It turns out, I was an idiot.
Now, she wants nothing to do with me, but I'm determined. I've spent the last five years without her and I refuse to waste another day. I have a solid plan. All of my figurative ducks are in a row. I'm going balls to the wall, and I'm not stopping until I win back the only girl I've ever loved.
Too bad for me, Devyn Summers was sitting on a secret that nothing could've prepared me for.

The author did an amazing job with the creation of the characters and her description of the environment. The romance is there, but not overdosed. Kudos to the author for this amazing start of a series that promises to be very entertaining.”

The last thing Clare Gray has time for is a man. She has a teenage daughter, a business, and friends who have her back. Who needs to complicate that with a man? She learned her lesson with her first marriage, and she has no intention of giving up her freedom for a knight in shining armor…even if he is a drool-worthy, out-of-town billionaire who swoops in to save her in a raging storm, with his luxury SUV and high-class life.
Griffin Friesé has four days in Birch Crossing to fix the worst mistake of his life. If he fails, he'll lose the one thing that matters to him: his daughter. But when he rescues a sassy, vulnerable single mom on his way into town, his carefully-ordered world is instantly upended. He has no time in his life for love…but her warmth and zest for life ignite a spark inside him that is too addictive to resist.
When the town's residents decide he and Clare are meant for each other, Griffin discovers he must dig deep to become the man he was meant to be…or lose it all forever.
