I moved three thousand miles to get away from my best friend, Luke Fraser.
He was the whole package.
Did I mention he was married?
I couldn't take the heartbreak of wanting something I couldn't have, so I bailed.
I had convinced myself that I was over him, until he ended up in my town for a six-week art commission.
One look was all it took for my heart to break all over again. I wasn't over him. Not one bit.
But things have changed, and not for the better.
Recently widowed, Luke is carrying darkness and secrets.
Everyone tells me to stay away. Even him. He's a mess. Broken. Incapable of giving me what he says I deserve.
But regardless of what I deserve, there's only one thing I need.
