Tracey Garvis Graves, the New York Times bestselling author of On the Island, returns. What if the life you wanted, and the woman you fell in love with, belonged to someone else? Chris and Claire Canton's marriage is on life support. Downsized during the recession and out of work for a year, Chris copes by retreating to a dark place where no one can reach him, not even Claire. When he's offered a position that will keep him away from home four nights a week, he dismisses Claire's concern that time apart could be the one thing their fragile union can't weather. Their suburban life may look idyllic on the outside, but Claire has never felt so disconnected from Chris, or so lonely.Local police officer Daniel Rush used to have it all, but now he goes home to an empty house every night. He pulls Claire over during a routine traffic stop, and they run into each other again at the 4th of July parade. When Claire is hired to do some graphic design work for the police department, her friendship with Daniel grows, and soon they're spending hours together.Claire loves the way Daniel makes her feel, and the way his face lights up when she walks into the room. Daniel knows that Claire's marital status means their relationship will never be anything other than platonic. But it doesn't take long before Claire and Daniel are in way over their heads, and skating close to the line that Claire has sworn she'll never cross.

Nice romance novel. Left we with emotions and thoughts. Will recommend to my girlfriends.

If you like shades of gray in your characters, this is the book for you. Claire's workaholic husband is ignoring her and their kids, but nice-guy cop Daniel isn't. I liked all of these people, warts and all.

Well written story, fall in love characters I was on the edge of my seat the entire read trying to figure out what Claire was going to do. Read in 2 days.

Really enjoyed this one. Liked the way the author told the story from each character personally per chapter. Very good. Hope she writes more.

this is a decent story, but everyone does the right thing and it is a little too straight laced and goody two shoed for me. I like a little edge to my stories, left me a little sexually frustrated actually! lol
