New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis continues her Wildstone series with the moving story of a young woman who has to start her life - and her love life - over again.
What would you change if you had to start your life - and love life - over again?
When Emma Harris wakes up from a coma she learns that her fiancé and her BFF have fallen in love, she's lost her job, and the life she knew is gone.
Starting over is not going to be easy - especially with her hot but evil physical therapist, Simon, putting her through the wringer in rehab, and her childhood nemesis Ali back in her life and taking the term 'frenemies' to a whole new level.
But Emma has never been a quitter. And as she grows from the pain of her past and takes on her new path, she comes to realize that life isn't what you're given, it's what you make of it.

Shalvis (The Forever Girl) returns to Wildstone, Calif., with a loaded romance that grapples with survivor's guilt and the work it takes to form a true connection. Emma Harris wants to take charge of her life, but struggles to control her body after a coma-inducing accident a year earlier. She loves to look at her physical therapist, Simon Armstrong, but hates how hard he pushes her. When it's finally time for Emma to be discharged from rehab, Simon offers to help her find an apartment, showing Emma a softer side she hadn't known existed. Now Emma plans to buy her local doggy day care to save the business from closing and, hopefully, generate enough income to cover her continuing medical expenses. This plan forces her to work with her high school nemesis, Alison Pratt, who owns the building. Alison thrives at Armstrong Properties, but flounders in her personal life. She hopes to win back her ex-boyfriend Ryan Dennison, and to do so she'll have to learn to loosen up. As Emma falls for Simon, and Alison works to reconnect with Ryan, the women form an unexpected friendship. Though somewhat repetitive, the novel whizzes by. Shalvis's fans will be pleased with the message that everyone deserves a second chance.
