Brett Erickson is a cop. He loved his life until an MVA changes it forever. His wife Sarah and her best friend, Manda were in the car when they hit a tree. Manda dies and Sarah changes forever. She becomes this hateful person who only wants to hurt him.
Years later, he meets Jesse Addison. She is the barista he goes to 4 days a week for his breakfast. Jesse is interested in him but Brett tries to keep his distance until Jesse invites him to a Bears's game. Thanks to Caleb (Brett's best friend and partner) the date takes place.
Brett opens up to Jesse and just when he seems to be moving on, Sarah is back in the picture.
Aly Martinez made me feel several emotions with this book. I felt bad for Brett. He loved Sarah and he lost her in every way possible. He lost his best friend and partner Caleb for a while too. He was so confused by his feelings towards Jesse and torn with his loyalty to Sarah.
Sarah was so great in the beginning of the book but after the accident she was so hateful and hated, I did.
Jesse was not my favorite heroine. She disappointed me more than once. Brett took her for granted and she let him hurt her more than once.
My favorite character was Caleb. He deserves his own HEA. He has suffered so much and he needs to be loved again.
"I knew that my life was never going to be the same. I was ruined and wrecked, and I hadn't even seen her naked yet."
"How weird is it that I want to spend the rest of the day kissing you?"
"Approximately 2,063,000 men ask this question every year. Only about fifty-four percent never ask it again."
“Because you don't work Fridays."
"I now see the sun behind the fog, and it's a damn good feeling."
"See, if you said green bean, I'd be very upset. However, if you told her an eggplant, I'd probably never wear pants again. So what's it going to be Jess?"
