Paul and Cassie were best friends all through high school and though there was never any romance there, both of them knew, no matter what, they could count on each other through thick and thin. When Chad joined their group, Paul had no idea how much it would affect the way he felt about Cassie. By the time he realized he had feelings for her, it was too late, she had started dating the other guy with plans to move away, go to college and marry him.
Now, years later, she’s back in Emerald Cove very much single and there to stay. When Paul rescues her from a tree after a failed attempt to coax a neighbors cat out of the branches, Paul is reminded immediately of why he’d never been able to get over her.
Cassie is happy to be back home, even with all the sad memories she had tried to leave behind years ago. Seeing Paul makes healing her heart and soul a little difficult. Can she get past the abandonment she’d felt from him during her most trying time, or will they be destined to only remain distant friends?
