His secret tragedy
Her hidden desire
And their willingness to risk everything…
Rafael Marroquin believes he’s cursed. He refuses to get close to people, because when he does, they get hurt. To his friends in Moon Harbor, Raf is known as the quiet, reliable one who never causes trouble. But if the town found out about his tragic past, they’d think differently.
After the death of her parents, everyone in town has treated Ellie Waters as delicate. All she wants is to live life on her terms and carve her own path. And maybe finally hook up with Rafael, the man she’s secretly pined for since she was a teen. Ellie’s all grown up now, but Raf still sees her as his best friend’s kid sister—or does he?
But just as their friendship finally gives way to all-consuming chemistry, the past rears its ugly head and threatens everything. Their town is at risk. Ellie is in danger. And trouble comes for Raf, in more ways than one.
Can they save each other before it’s too late? And can their love survive?
