She’s looking for a safe romance…not a retired Navy SEAL turned Intelligence operative. Cassie escapes to Ocean View Stables on the Oregon Coast to cope with the three year anniversary of her husband’s death. She’s starting to dream about her future and romance again. A safe romance, that is, where people don’t die. She runs into Ethan Caldwell, the cute boy who teased her through grade school. He sure grew up – into a man who would catch anyone’s eyes. Now he’s a single dad to nine year old Isabel, who talks about her parents getting back together, as soon as her mom is out of rehab. “Isy” also talks about her dad’s work trips. Apparently Ethan has some kind of dangerous and secretive government job. This isn’t at all what Cassie is looking for! So why is she running full speed into another broken heart? Ethan knows Isy gets just one childhood and yet he messes up at every chance. Cassie however brings out the best in both Ethan and Isy, but trying a relationship (when he’s failed so miserably before) could hurt his daughter and the woman he’s falling for. Isy asks Cassie to take her to visit her mom in rehab. That’s a bit complicated, but it’ll get her away from Brandon, Cassie’s close friend who realizes his chance with Cassie is slipping away. Why does moving forward have to be so complicated? Whichever path she chooses, Cassie will hurt someone. Should she protect herself from more pain, or chase what her heart wants?
