What happens when friends become lovers? Not what a wedding planner plans in a novel of unexpected romance by New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Probst.
Taylor Sunshine and Pierce Powers vowed to keep things platonic. They already have the best of each other: loyalty, friendship, and trust. Why ruin the perfect relationship? That kind of forever love isn’t in the picture anyway for a restless, aspiring artist like Taylor. Her sights are set beyond the horizon of Cape May and Sunshine Bridal.
The oceanfront hometown is part of Pierce’s heart - just like Taylor is. And it breaks at the thought of her leaving. As her closest friend since high school, he supports her desires, even if she must follow them away from Cape May. But when their defenses are down, all it takes is one impulsive, vulnerable night to change all the rules.
From old friends to overnight lovers, they make a new pact: explore a summer fling, no strings attached. But as the nights heat up and their connection grows deeper, hard choices must be faced. As summer nears its end, will Taylor and Pierce fulfill their individual dreams? Or are new dreams just beginning to come true?
“Both [Teddy] Hamilton's and [CJ] Bloom's narrations allow listeners to experience Taylor and Pierce's transition from friends to lovers, and the anxiety this generates in Taylor. When she is given an opportunity to show her work in Paris, listeners can feel her struggle as she longs to move on to pursue her art, knowing she will have to leave Pierce behind in Cape May. Both Hamilton and Bloom capably express Pierce's growing realization that he truly loves Taylor.” (AudioFile Magazine)
