Jacelyn Crocker is new in town, or so a handful of people in the small community of Brockport, NY, think she is. A decade ago, Jacey uprooted herself and headed west to the California coast where she attended art school and built a life surrounded by people she thought she could rely on. Rarely coming home, she lost touch more and more with the one person she could call her best friend, Sutton. When Jacey’s brother needs help with the family business, she comes back — only to find her friend has moved, leaving behind a web of lies and shattered hearts.
Tommy Stratford is a family man. Loyal, determined, and a hopeless romantic, he took a leap of faith when he was told he was going to build a family of his own. Jumping into the unknown was nothing new for him. But everything changed when Tommy’s dream became more of a nightmare — one that connects him with Jacey in ways they didn’t realize.
Forging a friendship, Jacey and Tommy find they can be whole without the person they thought completed each of them. Friendships are tricky, though, and there are a lot of grey areas. Judgments get clouded when intimacy is added to the equation, and they find themselves asking, “Is friendship enough?”
