Jennifer L. Armentrout (also known as J. Lynn), New York Times bestselling author of the Wait for You saga, delivers a new novel of first love, second chances, and scorching chemistry.
Eleven months ago, bartender and weird-shirt-wearing extraordinaire Roxy and Officer Reece Anders had a one night stand. Well, kind of. She's been in love with him since she was fifteen, and he wishes that night they shared never happened. She's sworn him off forever, but the past and future collide, forcing her to rely on the one man who broke her heart not once, but twice.
Her best friend since birth has been in a long-term care facility since he became a victim of a hate crime years ago, and the person who put him in there is out of prison and wanting to make amends with him and Roxy. She's not sure she has room for forgiveness in her and when she begins to receive frightening messages and is on the receiving end of escalating violence, she thinks she knows who is to blame. The man who already destroyed one life already.
But Reece isn't convinced. The threats are too personal, and even if Roxy doesn't believe him, he's not willing to let anyone hurt her. Including himself. He's already messed up more than once when it comes to Roxy and he's not going to let history repeat itself.
Bestseller Armentrout shines with this tight, suspenseful new adult tale, the fourth in her Wait for You saga (after Stay with Me). Bartender Roxy Ark's best friend, Charlie, is tragically injured in a hate-crime incident that Roxy feels is her fault. Years later, she still carries the guilt. Former Marine Reece Anders wants desperately to provide the hope and love Roxy needs if she'll only let him. While Roxy's been in love with Reece since she was a teenager, she's convinced that she doesn't have the right to be happy when her best friend is irreparably damaged. When a predator targeting local young women appears to set his sights on Roxy, it's up to Reece to rescue her, with help from an unexpected source. Readers will speed-read to find out what happens next to the powerfully appealing characters.
