Evan Ross is a prosecuting attorney who works very hard to represent his clients. He’s a genuinely good guy. Not to mention he’s very handsome and comes from money. He has had two best friend’s in his life, Todd and Kelsey. He introduced them back when he was in college with Kelsey. Todd was his best friend from his youth. This introduction led to Todd and Kelsey getting married. Evan moved on and got engaged to Courtney. The two couples maintained a friendship and did things together.
Eight years later and six months before Evan’s wedding he gets a phone call from a hysterical Kelsey saying she just walked in on Todd and Courtney having sex. From then on life was a whirlwind. Todd and Kelsey’s divorce and his break-up with Courtney. Due to the hurt feelings of them both, Evan and Kelsey didn’t speak for a while.
These two friends get reconnected and begin their friendship again. Evan has a two week trip to Hawaii he has to use or lose it. It was supposed to be his honeymoon gift from his parents. He asks Kelsey if she wants to go with him. She’s a little weary of it but decides to go.
This story was sweet and touching. Two people who have healed or are trying to heal over the pain of the past. It was nice to see their friendship grow into love. You get to see the past from both points of view. It’s a moving read about acceptance and forgiveness, not only of others but of one’s self.
