After two years in a coma, August Kinkaid has forgotten the darkness in his past. But his past hasn't forgotten him. His beautiful former fiancée, Everly, remembers every tumultuous moment of their stormy relationship. The sizzling passion. The web of lies. And the terrible secret Everly's been hiding since her last fateful night with August.
Now the truth is out and August remembers everything. As his long-buried memories come flooding back, he begins to understand why Everly would want to move on with her life. Why she would give her heart to another man. And why August should try to forget her once and for all.
But he can't give up on the only woman he's ever loved. Even if he has to reopen old wounds--and face the darkest demons of his past--August will do whatever it takes for a second chance with Everly. He let her slip away once. He's not about to spend the rest of his life remembering Everly when he could be holding her in his arms forever...

"Where do you want to eat? I asked, looking around at several options. It was a beautiful day, and there were a few places that offered outside dinning. The smell from one of my favorite Italian bistros wafted over, luring me in that direction.
"I think you've already decided," he replied, seeing my feet already moving towards the heavenly scent of garlic and freshly baked bread.
"I'm just looking," I stated, taking a few paces closer so I could peek at the menu. It had been a while since I'd been here, and I wanted to make sure they still had one of my favorite items--eggplant parmesan.
A deep laugh had me halting in my tracks.
My eyes darted to the left and there he was, tucked in a corner table with a gorgeous blonde. Even from this angle, I could see the designer labels I'd once become so familiar with adorning her from head to toe. She was everything I was not.
Everything he'd wanted me to be.
Manicured, primped to perfection without a hair out of place, she was every man’s fantasy and sitting there together, they truly made the perfect couple. He'd cut his hair short again, matching the razor edge precision of his tailored suit. He screamed money and class and with her by his side, it was like the missing piece of the puzzle had finally been found.
It shouldn't matter.
I shouldn't care. But
God, I did.
Look away, Everly. Look away.
As if he heard the silent mantra screaming inside my head, his attention turned and his eyes slightly widened, his gaze colliding with mine.
Time froze. The world melted away and there was only him, me and the swirling sea of emotions swimming between us. His jaw twitched, as my heart leapt into high gear. And as quickly as he found me again, his eyes slid away like I never existed.
Like I'd never meant anything.
His focus returned to his date and I was left shaking like a leaf.
