Three years after Courtney McAllister loses her partner in a car accident, she's finally trying to move forward. She's even dated half-heartedly over the past year, but no one is able to penetrate her emotional barricades until she meets aggressive real estate broker Rachel Hart.
Despite Rachel's cool facade, Courtney is drawn to her - when she isn't furious with her. Still, despite an undeniable attraction, Courtney has given her heart once and doesn't have room for that kind of love in her life again. Rachel isn't looking for love, especially not with a woman who belongs to someone else, and taking second place has never been her strong suit.

I had a hard time enjoying this book due to the narration... The constant swallowing sounds and the overall lack of feeling behind it left me wishing I had read the book myself. I would recommend not getting the audio version and perhaps it will be a more enjoyable story.
Welcome to our group Dakota; welcome to my life Summer, you've made it so much better. Give back to our wounded warriors who gave so much.
This is a very well written book, with almost all characters being both memorable and likable. It is unfortunate that the exception for most of the book was the second lead character Rachel Hart who up until the end of the book seems to be too much of a pain to put up with no matter how hot she might be. Her contempt for her father and total indifference to the death of his wife of 25 years paint her as a cold, bitter, heartless automaton. In the end she reveals more of what you can only hope is her true character. The grief group that Courtney begins attending has a couple of characters who do a good job of moving the story forward. Lisa helps bring Courtney forward and contributes to her recovery and Ted who isn't utilized as much as he could be, although the reason he isn't; isn't difficult to understand by the end of the story. Courtney's brother-in-law Marky (Mark) Manneti is another really good character and the connection he and Courtney share is sweet, though perhaps a bit too shallow. I had no problem giving this one 5 stars.
