She isn’t interested in relationships and the issues and complications they create. And when no man has ever even come close to making her feel the way her first love did, what’s the point?

A decade ago, a major tragedy sent Jamie’s golden boy life into a tailspin of drinking and drugs.

Now the owner of a successful outdoor adventure company, when Jamie has to move back to Seattle he can’t resist pursuing Bryn again.

Until an accident on a backpacking trip forces them both to decide whether their second chance at love is worth working for.
