Past secrets. A second chance. But can the truth really set them free? 

When former University of Alabama and Titans wide receiver Dax Carpenter learns his father is accused of a forty-year-old robbery and murder, he turns to the only person he trusts to discover the truth: his ex-girlfriend, Caitlin Fitzhugh. 

Caitlin, a cold-case specialist with the Alabama State Division of Investigations, wants nothing to do with the case nor Dax. Not only is the evidence against Dax’s father already condemning, she can’t risk having her heart broken—again. 

Caitlin’s boss, however, ignores her arguments, and she begrudgingly takes the consult, convincing herself she can keep the case and her past with Dax separate. But unlike her, longings and memories don’t follow orders. While she lends her skills to the Gulf Shores Police Department in the search for the truth, Dax fends off a possibly career-ending social media hit—leading him to question everything he knows about his father and himself. 

As the secrets of both their pasts unfold, they discover whether Dax’s father truly robbed and murdered a man forty years ago but also why Caitlin ended their relationship. Secrets that could drive a wedge between them, forever.

My Review

A flurry of movement tugged her gaze from her inbox and through the glass wall dividing her office from the bullpen. Caitlin’s jaw dropped. At six feet, six inches, Dax Carpenter would be hard to miss, however, the years of weight training drew every eye within a hundred yards.

But it wasn’t his height or even his muscled physique that made Caitlin’s heart quicken and her breath stutter. No, that was thanks to the memories flickering across her mind. Their shared moments—of laughter, delight, and yes, of love. Biting her lip, she closed her eyes in a long blink, willing those images back into the deepest recesses of her heart.

By the time he reached her door, she’d nearly succeeded. “Dax.”

His mouth flinched into some semblance of a smile. She studied his face, the pained brackets around his eyes, his tense cheeks, the dark green of his usually hazel eyes. Worry skirted through her. This was not a social call.

“What happened?” Despite her resolve to keep her distance, she rose and stepped around her desk. Her fingers itched to touch him, to soothe his desperation. It had been five years. How could he still have such an effect on her? She pushed the question aside. This wasn’t personal. And she couldn’t let it be.
