Tucker has always been a man of honor. When he was forced to make a choice between putting his brother in harm's way, or finally leaving the toxic environment of the firm he had worked so hard to change, he sets aside his pride and leaves the firm behind.
When the ex-wife of his dearest friend and mentor comes to him with a plea for help, he decides to take her case on himself. Andrew Peele had done the unthinkable and traded in his gorgeous wife and sweet daughter for a younger, more plastic version. When illness took him unexpectedly and with a questionable will, Tucker felt honor-bound to help Libby protect herself and her daughter's inheritance.
Libby Peele had always loved Tucker, a little. It was impossible not to be drawn to his sense of fair play and desire to help all those weaker than himself. But he was her husband's friend, and her husband wasn't the man he seemed to the world. She knew it was folly to expect Tucker to be what he appeared, but even when she pushed him away, every minute she wanted him more.
One night spent together to assuage their loneliness and grief, becomes another. An old friend becomes Tucker's greatest need. Libby struggles to let go of her painful past and trust the one man who has never hurt her. Together they fight for Olivia's future and her memories of a father she will never know. Through petty jealousies and startling revelations of his friend's darker side, Tucker swears to protect the woman and child who have captured his heart. But will they make it through it all?
