Somehow she needs to find the person she used to be and figure that the strength she’d thought she’d lost was always there.

He might have only been her best friend, but he held his true emotions close to the vest. Now he’s back in town and in Meghan’s life. Only he needs to decide if that’s enough for him…and her.
Their journey from friends to lovers is a slow burn of seduction and pain. When Meghan’s past comes back to haunt them both, the two of them will have to stand closer together or be torn apart by their own misgivings forever.

Meghan and Luc shared a friendship that had the potential for so much more. Only Luc didn’t let on to his feeling and Meghan got swept off her feet my another man.
Ten Years later, Meghan is trying to keep life going for herself and her kids. Spending the last decade living under the thumb of a husband that didn’t live up to the words that bound the two in marriage.
