Nothing’s turning out the way I’d planned.
I’d given up on winning back my cheating husband, swallowed my pride, and returned to the sleepy beachside town of my childhood, Emerald Bay.
A chance to forget the pain of divorce, and make a fresh start. A chance to find the person I used to be.
I didn’t expect to run into my high school boyfriend. The one that got away — the first big regret of my adult life. I didn’t expect him to look so good, or to be so lost. He was in pain, and I was in no shape to help him.
I wasn’t looking for love. I couldn’t take another heartbreak. I just wanted to find myself, or at the very least some kind of peace. But a love like ours is hard to shake, even after so many years apart.
I never thought I’d get a second chance at happiness. A second chance with Finn. I just wanted to find the way back to the person I once was.
But maybe… just maybe… he was the way back.
