Alone in the world, Tae Holmes and her mother April pretty much raised each other, but as Tae starts asking questions about the father she's never met, April, for the first time in her life, goes silent. To make matters worse, Tae is dangerously close to broke and just manages to avoid financial meltdown when she lands a shiny new contract with an adventure company for athletes with disabilities and wounded warriors.

Her first big fundraiser event falls flat, but what starts out as a terrible, horrible, no-good night turns into something else entirely when Tae finds herself face-to-face with Riggs Copeland. She hasn't seen the former Marine since their brief fling in high school, and while still intensely drawn to him, she likes her past burned and buried, thank you very much. Hence their friendship pact.

But when April oddly refuses to help Tae track down her father, it's Riggs who unexpectedly comes to her aid. On a hunt to unlock the past, the two of them find themselves on a wild ride and learn a shocking truth, while also reluctantly bonding in a way neither had seen coming. Now Tae must decide whether she's going to choose love ... or walk away from her own happiness.

Tae and her mom are more like sisters than mother and daughter in some ways. April was 17 when she had Tae. April made a lot of bad decisions with men and Tae had to look out for her often. April never quit trying to be a better mother and has a lot of guilt for that. They are very close because they've only every had each other. Riggs Copeland was Tae's first love and then he left. Now Riggs is back to help his brother for a while until he's off to his new job. Riggs always considered Tae important to him. `Even though he's only back for a short while he want to connect with her again. Tae not so much. When they make a friendship pact they're both happy to be friends but is that all it is? Love this story. Poor Tae has serious trust issues and those issues make relationships hard. Riggs has his own hangups but he's there for Tae, Lots of drama and love of love in this story. You'll be invested in these characters in no time.
