Mila Zelenko lives with the betrayal of the man she loved with all her heart. Her left her standing alone at the altar. Now she is a shell of her former self trying to cope with the painful reality that is her life. All through her predicament, the only constant was Andrew, the friend she needed and deeply cherished.
Sparks fly and Mila realises that there might be a possibility of more that friendship with Andrew. It has been brewing between them for years and she finally feels it. But before she can fully act on it, Cole Van Buren, the bane of her life comes back hashing old wounds.
Torn between her past and her present, Mila needs to decide if she can forgive Cole and accept him back or if it’s finally time to move on from the memories that haunt her everyday.
I loved this story because no character is perfect. They are real and you can connect to them in one way or another. You don’t have to necessarily gone through what the characters experienced but their pain and their struggle is what every human goes through is some way.
This story wasn’t sugar coated. Every character had their flaw that they were struggling with and trying to overcome. They went through different developments that only enhanced the story and made me love it even more.
I am so happy I picked up this book because now I’m a Veronica Larsen fan for life and I’m totally going to binge read all her books. What an amazing, enthralling and real story!!

Eight years ago, Cole Van Buren left me at the altar without a single explanation. My heart’s been at a standstill ever since, the anger keeping me from moving on. Keeping me from seeing the man who’s been right in front of me all this time…
Andrew’s been the friend I needed, the one constant through the hardest times of my life. But one night, the lines blur and we’re tipped into something more. Just when I’m ready to explore what we could be…
My ex comes back.
Cole says he didn’t come to get me back, but I should know better. The answers he dangles overhead are the ones I need to finally let go.
Except there’s no such thing as closure, only a past that wants to pull you backward.
