For Santos McPherson, it had always been Amber Dempsey.
Santos, retired from the Navy, returns home to his family in Simi Valley, California. His family included Amber’s family, because Santos and Amber’s dads had been friends nearly all their lives.
After being inseparable since childhood, Amber and Santos hadn’t spoken since he had shipped out with the Navy while Amber had attended Northwestern University. Then she remained in Illinois after graduating as a forensic accountant.
An argument after they graduated from high school led to a break-up between Santos and Amber, but even now, after all the years that had passed, Santos knew Amber was the only girl he’d ever loved—would ever love—and sets out to win her back.
