When you fall in love with your best friend, it's the kind of love that's supposed to last forever.
Jo Donovan was a true believer of happily ever afters—until her best friend, Christopher, was killed in Afghanistan, destroying her belief that fairy-tale endings existed.
Destroying her. Destroying her world.
Five years later…
Jo finds herself still stuck in the past, unable to find closure with Christopher's death.
When she moves to Austin, Texas, with her son, Junior, she's finally given the fresh start she's been desperately seeking.
What she doesn't know is that the fresh start comes in the form of her sexy neighbor, Drew Greyson.
Their friendship starts off rocky, but eventually, a spark between them ignites. It isn't long before that spark turns explosive, and she finds herself falling for him.
Drew wants to be her everything, her forever, but will Jo's pain from losing Christopher stop her from following her heart?

This was my first Elena Matthews book, but I categorically loved it and cannot wait to read more! I cried from page one—due to the painful subject matter, but literally laughed out loud throughout the book between the characters banter. I could not wait to turn the page to see what was going to happen next between them!

She tries hard not to show their son Junior how depressed she gets because she's lost without him. Christopher deployed to Afghanistan when Junior was only 4 months old so he only knows his father through what Jo has told him and pictures. They had to move to Austin for her job, which took them away from everything and everyone he's known all his life, as well as leaving behind the place that held every memory Jo had with Christopher. **How do you stop loving someone who was your whole world?
