Life-long friends Beth Carlyle and Nick Hammond haven’t ever pushed the limits of their relationship. But when her boyfriend turns violent and Nick jumps in to protect her, everything changes.
In the chaos following that horrible night, Nick becomes Beth’s anchor as she pulls the pieces of herself together. She never imagined he’d be anything more than her best friend, but with her trust shattered, there’s only one place she feels safe—in his arms. Boundaries crumble and new desires ignite. With her heart a tangled mess, how can she know what’s real?
Nick is willing to do whatever it takes to help Beth recover, no matter the cost to himself, but in the face of undeserved consequences, he may be the one who needs saving. Protecting the man she loves means bringing her nightmare into the light. Will she find the courage to reveal the truth before Nick pays the ultimate price?
Trigger warning: this book involves a rape and surviving the aftermath, and it may be a difficult read for sensitive readers.
