When her father is found in a coma after suffering a heart attack, Philadelphia divorce attorney, Julia Hughes-Humphries, returns to Friendship, the small western Pennsylvania hometown she's avoided for five years. A literal run-in at the hospital reunites her with the man she's vowed to steer clear of, her childhood best friend, Thad Tanner. The same best friend who dumped her and their friendship five years earlier.
Newly divorced Thad has devoted all of his time to building his security consultation business and creating a stable life for his son, Max. When he bumps into Julia—the woman who had his back until his stupidity got in the way—he has an opportunity to fix what he screwed up. He won't let anything, not even the feelings he's denied his entire life, interfere with their renewed friendship.
The more time they spend together, the more they're reminded of their chemistry and compatibility, and the sizzle between them becomes harder to ignore. With Thad suddenly as her source of support and comfort, can Julia learn to trust him again? Thad is determined to prove he can be what Julia needs, but she isn't the only one discouraged by doubts and restricted by responsibilities. Can their relationship survive as hidden truths are revealed, and secrets escape the shadows of the past?
