As their relationship begins to grow the past comes back to haunt Ethan and could destroy another relationship for Evie.
"This book is so incredibly moving, and quite honestly, there are parts that are just laugh out loud, righteously hilarious. Evie Reid is kind, and good, and loving, and Ethan has to be the sexiest man alive. Not only is this a beautiful story of love and family, but holy smokes, Ethan and Evie are so sexy." - Chelsey S.
"Can I please just move in next door to these people? In this second book, Anders builds on the relationships of all the characters from her first novel, and introduces us to some incredible new additions to the story. Her ability to weave them in, and make you fall in love with them, is extraordinary. Find a couple of hours to yourself, because you wont be able to put it down." Lisa L.
