Brian had everything. A successful career, a loving family, and a beautiful fiancée. The perfect life. That is, until he learned of the ultimate betrayal by a man he considered a second father, a man to whom he owed much of his professional success.
Still reeling from a broken engagement and disillusioned with relationships, crossing paths with Olivia Burke stirs up memories he had long ago put away. As questions about his personal quest for justice overwhelm him, so do thoughts of Olivia ― the girl who once was his kindred spirit, his entire world.
Their unexpected reencounter triggers old feelings and sends his life into a tailspin. Facing his own vulnerabilities is only the beginning. The uphill battle to regain her trust, when she's suffered her own share of heartbreak, is the challenge that follows.
But it's been ten years. Will they get one last chance to make things right? Or will Brian learn that sometimes justice comes at too high a price?(Previously titled Free Falling.)
