From NYT Bestseller Corinne Michaels & USA Today Bestseller Melanie Harlow, comes a second chance standalone romance.
Ian Chase broke my heart at seventeen, and I’ve spent the last eighteen years hating him for it.
He makes it easy, with his smart mouth and playboy lifestyle—which I unfortunately have to observe since he lives behind me. Every time I see him climbing out of his pool, practically naked and unreasonably sexy, my blood boils.
I’ve always loved to loathe him.
I never planned to need him.
***
London Parish is my little sister’s best friend, not that it stopped me from falling for her.
Our history is complicated. The only thing we have in common is being godparents to my sister’s three adorable kids—until our lives are changed in one tragic moment.
Now we’re trying to raise the children we love, mourn an unthinkable loss, and fight an undeniable attraction.
My life is already upside-down, and the last thing I need is for old feelings to resurface.
Because I’ll never be able to keep her, no matter how hard I try to hold her close.

Corinne Michaels is one of my favorite authors out there, but for some reason i simply couldn’t enjoy this book.
H & h knew each other since they were teenagers, she was his sister’s bff, prom night he took her virginity and the next day broke her heart. Seventeen years later, they’re still mortal enemies. His sister and brother in law die, leaving their three kids in his care. That’s all i got.

I couldn’t continue reading because of their hate of each other, they bitchiness of the heroine towards the hero and because i read the epilogue, as i often do, after starting a book, and View Spoiler ».
