Once upon a time, there was a young, naïve girl who fell madly in love with her brother’s Navy SEAL friend. It was one glorious, unforgettable summer. A magical, whirlwind of new and exciting emotions. But this girl knew she wasn’t ready for Cole Keniston not at twenty-three. So, she did the only thing she could do and left him.
It was me; I was the girl who’d found her forever love and still walked away.
I’ve waited years—twenty of them to be exact—to find my way back to Cole. I’ve prepared for battle, and I’m armed with the information Cole and his team needs to take down a human trafficking ring. I am no longer the unsure, sheltered girl I once was. I’m wiser, stronger, and ready to take on any obstacle that stands in my way of claiming my future.
The former SEAL is about to be outplayed by the very ethos he’s lived his life by: I will never quit. I persevere and thrive on adversity. If knocked down, I will get back up, every time. I will not fail.
That is if I don’t die at the hands of the enemy before Cole and my brother can find me.
