From New York Times best-selling author Samantha Towle comes an unexpected love story between two unlikeliest of people....
A new town. A new identity. Pregnant and alone. And far away from a past that can never find me.
River Wild. Moody. Sullen. Jerk. And my new neighbor.
I have no interest in befriending River. And he definitely doesn't want to be befriended by me.
Then, he helps me rescue an abandoned dog. And that day, I see something in his eyes that reflects back in my own. Sadness. Pain. Loneliness.
I know all of those things well.
An unwanted and unexpected friendship that somehow works. Then, without warning, it turns into something more.
River and I both have our secrets, and that's okay. Because I understand him. And he understands me.
For the first time in my life, I have something I never thought I would have - happiness.
But happiness isn't forever. Not for people like me.
Especially not when my past is waiting just around the corner, ready to come and take it all away.
