She’s the only one who ever loved him—and the only one he can never have.
Jude lost everything one spring day when he crashed his car into an apple tree on the side of the road. A man is dead, and there's no way he can ever right that wrong. He’d steer clear of Colebury, Vermont forever if he could. But an ex-con in recovery for his drug addiction can’t find a job just anywhere.
Sophie Haines is stunned by his reappearance. After a three year absence, the man who killed her brother and broke her heart is suddenly everywhere she turns. It’s hard not to stare at how much he’s changed. The bad boy who used to love her didn’t have big biceps and sun-kissed hair. And he’d never volunteer in the church kitchen.
No one wants to see Sophie and Jude back together, least of all Sophie's police chief father. But it's a small town. And forbidden love is a law unto itself.

Sarina Bowen has topped herself again. I couldn't put down Steadfast! -Unapologetic Book Addict
A dark and heart rending story. I was inspired to think more about giving people second chances and the benefit of the doubt. Also? It's really, really sexy. -Tiff at Mostly YA Lit
My absolute favorite.
Jude is my favorite character development in the entire series. His anguish feels real, and the depiction of the “cravings meter” on every chapter really puts you in perspective. I’ve read and re-read this one so many times.
I just love this author
I love these stories so much I just had to something 🥰
Couldn’t put it down. It was well written and kept my rapt attention through a suspenseful and entertaining pace. I loved Jude and Sophia’s story. It was a very moving storyline with real life insight on what a drug addict does to make it through the day and tempting situations that occur. Nicely done!
