Baylee Alexander has finally come out of hiding from the shambles left behind after making a grave mistake that shifted her view on life and love. As she’s attempting to rid herself of the baggage she carries, her sight is set on the perfect distraction – work. With her dreams under attack, she takes a leap of faith that lands her in a situation she isn’t prepared for.
A whirlwind romance develops, and falling for each other is uncontrollable for both Dakari and Baylee. But how long will it last when the skeletons of the past start to tumble out of the closets they thought they sealed?

I loved the relationships in this book. From the romantic relationships, to the friendships, to the sibling relationships. Each one was special. Being able to have people around who hold you accountable and love you unconditionally is amazing. Although Dakari and Baylee were our main focus, the previews we were given into the other characters kept me equally engaged.
The biggest thing I took from this was you can’t allow transgressions from previous relationships to completely change your outlook on life and love. Relationships are going to get bumpy, even the best ones. But if they’re worth the ride, then patience, communication, trust, and even forgiveness are a must.
