Get Five Years Gone here and read that first!
He came home a hero and lost the only woman he’s ever loved…
Navy Captain John West has no idea how to survive without his beloved Ava, who moved on with her life during John’s six-year deployment and has now married Eric. He’d prefer to wallow in his depression and heartbreak, but the whole damned world wants a piece of the SEAL Team leader who helped capture the world’s most-wanted terrorist. He needs help handling the relentless requests, and when Ava sends her new sister-in-law to manage the media circus for him, John is prepared to hate her on principle. Her brother took his Ava. What else does he need to know about her?
Julianne Tilden realizes right away that Ava’s ex is going to be the most complicated and difficult client she’s ever had, but an opportunity to represent the most celebrated man in the world could make her career. She’s determined to do the job, even if she dislikes John from the moment she meets him. And Julianne likes everyone. So much so that her brothers worry about her being taken advantage of by those who would exploit her unwavering love for others. But John… He’s in a class by himself, and his bitterness is a festering wound that she begins to wish she could somehow fix for him.
The more time John and Julianne spend together, the more their mutual disdain morphs into something that feels an awful lot like desire. There’s no way she could want this man, or so she tells herself, and when Eric finds out she’s developed feelings for the man causing trouble in his new marriage, well….
That’s going to be a hot mess.

Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
