Nine years ago, things were perfect. Lacey and Karson had found their happily ever after in each other . . . or so they thought. How do two people who were meant to be move on from that once-in-a-lifetime love? Lacey has a strength inside her that comes alive with the things she's most passionate about. She's a fighter and a survivor, and she has everything she's ever wanted except the one thing that matters most-love. Karson is doing the one thing he loves most-playing hockey for the Assassins-yet he knows regret. He knows his life has been missing the one thing he walked away from so many years ago, Lacey. Nine years later, and neither has been able to succeed in moving on from what was, what could have been, and who each of their hearts still beats for. When a chance encounter during a fateful night has their paths crossing again, will the tether still attaching their souls allow them to face the past, present, and a possible future? Contains mature themes.
