What happens when a single night of unexpected passion with a stranger leaves you wanting more?

Twenty years later, Dr. Jamie Hammond thinks she’s put that night far behind her. She’s a successful chiropractor and is about to celebrate a ten-year anniversary with her partner. But instead of reaping the benefits of responsibility and hard work, she finds herself fighting to save her business and relationship as doubt, betrayal, and disappointment tear at the fabric of her life.

Carla Grant is looking for a new challenge after settling her daughter at college. She never imagines that applying for an office manager position will change her life.

As Jamie and Carla work to save Jamie’s business, they will have to examine everything they thought they knew about love, responsibility, and family. Can two women dare to believe that it’s never too late for happily ever after?

Great debut novel.  Easy read with complex MC's and secondary characters. A little heavy on the Melissa Etheridge references though.

Very nice style, the story had a natural flow to it. Characters were exceptionally well developed. Plot moved well without becoming predictable.

This was an excellent story. It's so much cheering for Carla as she moves into her new life, and it was nice the amicable split. Your heart breaks for poor Jamie with all she's struggling with but she handles it believably and without unnecessary drama that would drag the story down. All the characters and their motivations were believable, even the 'bad guys' of the books were very human rather than pure evil. I loved the friendships, the slow burn of Jamie and Carla getting back together. Every moment of this book was a joy.
