When Kailey met Cade ten years ago, their attraction was immediate and intense only to end as suddenly as it began, leaving Kailey devastated.

Alternating between 2008 and a decade earlier, the narrative details Kailey's relationship with Cade and her present life with her fianc , Ryan. When Kailey realizes that Cade does not remember who he is or what happened to him, she embarks on a quest to help him find out.

The story is most compelling when exploring Kailey's internal conflict, though her choice between the two men is made too easy. And though the mystery surrounding Cade ultimately seems underdeveloped, fans of Jio's work will still find her signature emotional depth.
