Harland Day knows what it’s like to be on rock bottom: he’s been there before, years ago when his mother walked out and left him behind. But he learned how to play the game and survived, crawling his way up with the help of a friend-turned-lover. This time was different: he has nobody to blame but himself for his trip to the bottom. And this time, he doesn’t have anyone to help him, not when his own selfishness killed the most important relationship he ever had.
Courtney Williams’ life wasn’t exactly what she had planned but she was happy. It wasn’t glamorous and it wouldn’t lead to fame and fortune, but she of all people knows there are more important things in life. And, for the most part, she’s been able to forget what could have been–until Harland rolls back into town, full of attitude designed to hide the man underneath. But he can’t hide from her, the one person who knows him better than anyone else. They had been friends. They had been lovers. And then they had been torn apart by misunderstanding and betrayal.
But some ties are harder to break. Can they look past what had been and move forward to what could be? Or will the sins of the past haunt them even now, all these years later?
