He’s a soldier haunted by what he saw…
For Wyatt Forrester, becoming a Marine and then getting on an elite team was a no-brainer. He was made for excitement and danger. But when a mission goes wrong and his friend dies, Wyatt goes home to get his head on straight.
His beautiful and meddlesome best friend Penny is determined to help him figure things out, and her methods are deliciously unorthodox. Wyatt’d be lying if he said he hadn’t ever thought about Penny as more than a friend. Hell, he spent most of high school trying to impress her, but she made it clear they were only friends.
But when they kiss, it blows all that “only friends” stuff out of the water. Wyatt can’t pretend anymore. He’s got to have her, consequences be damned. He might not know where he belongs, but he knows who he wants.
She’s the friend he’s always desired…
Penny Edgecombe lived a wild musician’s life, but now she’s devoted to her five-year-old son. Now, she’s given up music, and she’s given up men. She doesn’t have the time or inclination to date seriously.
Her biggest fear is getting trapped in a relationship as loveless as the one her parents had.
The only man she’s ever let into her heart is Wyatt, but she even put boundaries on that, though those boundaries get pushed when their friendship careens into toe-curlingly passionate territory. Soon, Penny’s traitorous heart wants more.
But outside forces are determined to tear them apart. While Wyatt grapples with the ghosts in his past and tries to find a path forward, Penny has to face her fear and fight for the man who’s finally caught her wild heart.
Do they have the guts to fight for their long-overdue happily ever after?
