What impact would it have when everything suddenly faded to black? For Mia, a crowded subway ride changes her entire life. Retreating to the wilderness helps her cope with a world that is suddenly too loud, too turbulent. Her existence safely contained to the small cottage on the lake, she is unprepared for the neighbor that moves across the bay A career-ending injury has Jared permanently benched. His reputation as The Enforcer won’t survive the unanticipated responsibilities awaiting him. Away from the public eye, he adjust to his new reality, under the quiet observation of the intriguing hermit on the other side of the water.
This book took my breath away. What a beautiful story. Starting this book, I thought it would be the typical sports romance but man, this book was SO much more.

Mia living with PTSD also lives a life of seclusion. She has a cute one bedroom cottage on a little corner of a private lakefront. But with her new neighbor it doesn’t feel too private anymore.

Jared was a star hockey player that had an injury on the ice that left him without a career. He wanted to get out of the spotlight so he bought a house out on a secluded lake. Little did he know that his playboy lifestyle was put on full display with Mia so close by.

This book is not a short and sweet read that you may think you are digging into. Instead this book takes you to places you wouldn’t imagine. The thought put into this book was epic. I couldn’t put it down. The flow was spectacular and the story was magnificent. One of the best books I’ve read this year.

Freya Barker inspires with her stories about 'real’ people, perhaps less than perfect, each struggling to find their own slice of happy. She is the author of the Cedar Tree Series and the Portland, ME, novels.
Freya is the recipient of the RomCon “Reader’s Choice” Award for best first book, “Slim To None,” and is a finalist for the 2016 Kindle Book Awards for “From Dust”. She currently has two complete series and three anthologies published, and is working on two new series; La Plata County FBI—ROCK POINT, and Northern Lights. She continues to spin story after story with an endless supply of bruised and dented characters, vying for attention!
