Their love was supposed to last forever. But when life delivered blow after devastating blow, Yasmen and Josiah Wade found that love alone couldn’t solve—or save—everything.

It couldn’t save their marriage. Yasmen wasn’t prepared for how her life fell apart, but she’s finally starting to find joy again. She and Josiah have found a new rhythm, co-parenting their two kids and running a thriving business together. Yet like magnets, they’re always drawn back to each other, and now they’re beginning to wonder if they’re truly ready to let go of everything they once had.

Soon, one stolen kiss leads to another . . . and then more. It’s hot. It’s illicit. It’s all good—until old wounds reopen. Is it too late for them to find forever? Or could they even be better the second time around?


Kennedy Ryan is well known for her books having some intense topics involved. She does have a content warning at the beginning of the book. I have included those topics plus some other sensitive content I observed while reading:

  • Alcohol
  • Depression
  • Discussion of complicated grief
  • Divorce
  • Loss of a loved one (past, off page)
  • Miscarriage/stillbirth
  • Passive suicidal ideation (no attempt)
  • Pregnancy
  • Profanity
  • Sexually explicit scenes
