Camille’s capacity for love dies when her husband passes away unexpectedly—or so she thinks. When she meets Nic and they bond over the trauma of experiencing devastating loss, she thinks she’s found a friend she can rely on—if they can control the growing chemistry between them.
In between explosions of passion, she has to figure out if she is truly ready to move on with her life before the guilt of falling for another man tears her new relationship apart.
She had no control over losing her the man of her past, but her fate with the man of her future is entirely in her hands—and she’s going to have to fight for him and the new life she wants. Step one? Admitting he’s perfect for her. Step two? Convincing him of that.
Nic’s a man on the edge. He’s on the verge of losing everything, and is at the end of his rope. Camille may seem like she’s perfect for him, but nothing so perfect would enter his life at such an imperfect time.
Still, he can’t get her off his mind. With his world crumbling beneath him, clinging to his budding relationship with Camille is the only thing keeping him going. But he knows he has to keep her at a distance, so that when his world explodes, she’s not caught in the crossfire.
