Jules Avery and Gavin Boyd have been together for five years, but after a proposal-gone-wrong, Jules sees the real side of Gavin…a side she never wants to see again.
Gavin informs Jules he’s leaving the country for a while, and later that day she learns of her parents’ murders. Is it coincidence these things happened on the same day?
Reed Davison, her longtime friend, learns of her loss, and he steps in and assumes the role of protector, friend, and hopeful lover. Having been infatuated with her since high school, he would like nothing more than to make Jules his, but for the time being, he’s content with his self-imposed role in her life.
As Jules and Reed grow closer, their relationship begins to flourish. It isn’t long before he realizes she is the one for him, and he plans to make her his in a more permanent way. On the evening he plans to propose, events unfold—events that force Jules to evaluate her life.
Will she allow the life she has built with Reed to crumble around her?
