When passion flares, will the storm that rages shipwreck them both?

 

Advance praise from Publishers Weekly: "Riley strikes an impressive balance between steamy sex scenes and sweeping romance in this tender second-chance-at-love story....Riley endearingly captures the growth of Charlotte and Lexi’s relationship from when they were in high school to when they are reunited as adults.
