Becca and Nick were destined to be together. He was the love of her life, or so she thought. Then tragedy strikes and Becca is left heartbroken and devastated. The road to recovery seems almost hopeless at times, but with love and support from the good people of Pride, she's looking forward to putting the past behind her. When Nick's best friend, Sean, returns home a year later, he brings with him an unexpected gift that has her reliving the past all over again.
Sean's homecoming is tarnished with the loss of his best friend along with the recent discovery of his fiancees infidelities while he was deployed. If Sean needs anything right now it's a good friend to lean on and Becca has always been there for him. When the two decide to get away for a while, they're forced to accept the undeniable attraction between them. But now an unforeseen challenge threatens to rip them apart forever.

I re-read this book by accident then wondered why I found it so familiar, but never regretted a moment of it at all. Then I needed to rethink the rating I’d initially given and thought that I should even write a review for this book which has immensely grown on me since I last read it.

I thought Jill Sanders handled the dynamics between Sean and Becca very well; they were always friends before becoming more – and never less than respectful towards each other – and I loved how they reminisced about Nick as they moved on together. With minimal angst and without unnecessary drama to stir things up, Sanders brings a couple fully deserving of each other together in a way I’d never quite thought possible as their relationship changes from warm to scorching during that trip away, with a touch of the forbidden that made me love the story just that tiny bit more. But this is as much about Becca as it is about their relationship: it is ultimately Sean who opens her eyes to adventures beyond her home, which provides a more layered dimension to the story as Becca herself grows in ways she herself couldn’t have expected.
