The only thing holding me back was my heart. You know, the broken one.
I knew if Jake and I got back together we would make our past relationship look like child's play. It would be a sweet footnote to this new, torrid love affair. "Jake and Eve 2.0" would be an uncontrolled explosion of sex and adoration.
Uncontrolled explosions were dangerous. Everyone knew that.
And yet, I couldn't seem to stop myself from playing with the matches.
Loving someone, and being in love, isn't always the same thing.
That's what Eve Daniels is trying to come to terms with when Jake Spencer suddenly returns to her life after 10 years of silence. Haunted by a past he had no power to control, Jake left everyone and everything behind in hopes of saving Eve from his demons. His one regret was breaking her heart.
From the moment they reconnect, it is clear to Eve the passion, brilliance, and determination that first attracted her to Jake are stronger than ever. So strong that fighting their pull seems useless. But falling back in love isn't as easy as letting the walls down. Eve soon realizes the choices they've both made come with consequences. Ones that will test how deep her love runs for a man living with a storm inside.
