Yasmine’s world breaks apart when she finds her fiancé in bed with another. Shattered, she flees LA and escapes to her second home—her sister’s Key West bed and breakfast—where she bumps into her childhood friend, Hawk, who went from the chubby boy-next-door to a certified millionaire hottie. Her instincts tell her to run. Even Hawk warns her.
All grown up, they’re now opposites—light and darkness, fire and ice, sunshine and cold shadows. She’s on a voyage to heal her heart with yoga and Google spells, while Hawk battles his demons with art and meaningless sex. Years ago, he discovered that his marriage was a lie, wasting his vows on a woman who turned out to be nothing but a cold-blooded killer. For Hawk, there’s no hope for a normal life. His mind is too broken, his faith in humanity as dead as his ex-wife’s victims.
Heartbreak is like death. Both strip away the soul and leave the body as an empty shell. But the universe has its surprises, and as breezy days go by, Hawk and Yasmine’s kinship in pain shifts from friendship to hungry lust. And although they battle against it, there’s an intense passion bridging between them that they can’t ignore.
