Fast forward..

Life has been good for both of them, Ian has a divorce under his belt which he's happy about, he's a successful business owner of a thriving club, and enjoys his playboy life style.

➽ We fight. Claw, scratch, and tear each other apart. He's an asshole and I'm a bitch. We bring out the worst in each other. 

When tragedy strikes their lives will never be the same again, because they have been entrusted as godparents to three children that are going to need Ian and London to work together to help these children get through life without their parents.

➽ London represents everything I've ever wanted but didn't deserve. She's a pain in the ass, but she's also brilliant, funny, kind, and loving. I loved her once and let her go because she needed to fly. 

These two were a hot mess!! In some cases it was the kids that had to be the adults because these two were at loggerheads constantly tearing the other down, but that just upped the angst levels in this which one would expect with a second chance romance, throw in the children and you've got yourself a gem. The perfect blend of angst, hope, love, and emotional turmoil made for a rollercoaster of a unique read.

From NYT Bestseller Corinne Michaels & USA Today Bestseller Melanie Harlow, comes a second chance standalone romance.

Ian Chase broke my heart at seventeen, and I’ve spent the last eighteen years hating him for it.

He makes it easy, with his smart mouth and playboy lifestyle—which I unfortunately have to observe since he lives behind me. Every time I see him climbing out of his pool, practically naked and unreasonably sexy, my blood boils.

I’ve always loved to loathe him.

I never planned to need him.

*** 

London Parish is my little sister’s best friend, not that it stopped me from falling for her.

Our history is complicated. The only thing we have in common is being godparents to my sister’s three adorable kids—until our lives are changed in one tragic moment. 

Now we’re trying to raise the children we love, mourn an unthinkable loss, and fight an undeniable attraction.

My life is already upside-down, and the last thing I need is for old feelings to resurface. 

Because I’ll never be able to keep her, no matter how hard I try to hold her close.
