Publisher's Summary

I remember the very first time I laid eyes on Cole Lincoln. It still feels like yesterday when he stumbled into my life with his messy brown hair and dark eyes. Even though I was only 10 years old at the time, I knew right then and there that he was going to change everything.

From that point on, Cole and I were always together, inseparable, and I naively believed we'd be best friends forever. But forever didn't last nearly as long as I expected.

We grew up and grew apart, life driving the distance between us, but my love for Cole never faltered. Even long after he moved away, leaving me and our little town behind, I still carried a piece of him with me every single day. Because Cole wasn't just my childhood best friend - the boy who knew me better than anyone else in the whole world. He was also my first love - a part of my very core.

When a tragic death brings us face-to-face again after six years, every single memory comes rushing to the surface. Only this is not the boy I fell in love with all those years ago. The man before me is hardened, intimidating, and so damn sexy I practically melt when those dark eyes meet mine for the first time in six years.

And like the first time he walked into my life, I know with complete certainty that everything is about to change.

Super Sweet

This story between Cole and Melanie was so sweet. Best friends growing up to miscommunication as teens to finding their way back together. Life came full circle for these two.

Great story

Enjoyed the book. Normally I read the book first, but I listen to this book first.

I did not enjoy the dual POV narrated by a woman only.
