Publisher Description

Millions of readers have fallen in love with Ava's bestselling books...come join the family.

International Bestselling Author Ava Miles presents a powerful and emotional romance about a man willing to lay everything on the line for a second chance at love. Selected by USA Today as a "Must Read."

Sports hero and newly retired NFL quarterback Blake Cunningham wants a second chance at love…with his ex-wife. He’s bought the house next door to her in Dare Valley and has built a bridge connecting their properties. It’s his bridge to a better life, the one he lost when Natalie Hale left him after a family tragedy destroyed their marriage.

Natalie has just started a new job as the head caterer at the small town’s historic hotel. When she discovers Blake has become the boy next door—literally—she secretly has to admit he still fires up all her engines and tugs at her heart. But the ghosts from their past seem too monumental to conquer.

Blake vows to help Natalie remember the power of their love and friendship. With the intense sparks of attraction flying between them, Natalie begins to put her heart out there again. How can she resist Blake when he makes her laugh and swoon by even acting out her secret Outlander fantasy? As they both give love a second chance, they are forced to face their most disturbing memories, not only the tragedy that ripped their lives apart, but also the secret parts they were afraid to share…

Another winner from Ava Miles

I don’t think I’ve ever given a rating on one of Ava Miles’ books that was not 5 stars. She’s simply one of the best at writing from the heart . Her books are always interesting with beautifully drawn characters & believable plot lines. Her books are about love, pure & not usually simple. Her bedroom scenes are tastefully written. This book of Natalie & Blake is one more in a long line of uplifting books & you will be glad you got to spend time with them & hate to reach the end.


The Bridge To A Better Life
