My name is Matt Holcomb, and I’m the good guy. The boy next door. I’m the safe bet and I always do the right thing. Then one night two years ago, I made a terrible mistake that caused irreparable damage, and the guilt is killing me. If I’m ever to make the leap and find love again, the woman would have to be perfect. She can’t disrupt my carefully constructed control. I met my best friend Jenny Winter as a teenager and have loved her ever since. She’s gorgeous and talented. Her voice could make angels weep. Yet she chose someone else and I swore I’d never fall for her again. Until something happens between us and passion ignites. But she’s not the right girl for me, and crossing the line with her would not only change everything, it’ll take away the only good thing I have left.

Jenny and Matt have a been best friends since teenager. They both understand that the friendship forged will not be more than that despite Jenny harbored a secret crush on Matt for years. Matt on the other hand, decided to move to Seasmoke permanently after ending a relationship which he convinced he doesn’t deserve to be love or be loved in return. It was here that Matt discover that his feeling for Jenny.
Overall, it is a heart wrenching emotional read for me especially at the ending. Love reading about Matt and Jenny carry their pasts and baggage and how they overcome it.
