My mother didn’t.
My father didn’t.
The beautiful boy next door, who grew up to marry me, didn’t. Neither did the next man with whom I thought my heart was safe.
Back in the Bay area, three thousand miles from New York City, I can start fresh. Become one with the sea again, rise or fall on the tide of my own choices. But on the first day of my bright new life, the darkest shadows of my past follow me through my office door.
The two men whose names are definitely not on my five-year plan.
If I let it consume me—my need for one man, my love for the other—the darkness will swallow me whole.
I can’t let that happen.
Not again. This time, the waves of emotion crashing against my heart won’t drown me. This time, I get to choose my happy ending.
You’ll love this breathtaking friends-to-lovers contemporary romance.
