Reese James’ life was never easy. Trying to stay upbeat and positive while her twin sister battled cancer took its toll on her. The one thing getting her through was her relationship with her lifelong best friend Bette Mitchell. Unfortunately, constantly blurring the lines between friendship and something more was destined to blow up at some point, and that’s exactly what happened when Reese hit her rock bottom.
After losing her father, Bette Mitchell didn’t know how she would ever feel okay again. The thing she did know was there was one person who understood exactly how it felt to lose someone close to her. The problem was she and Reese had barely spoken after Bette broke her heart three years earlier.
But now Reese is back in town for the funeral and willing to do anything to help Bette smile again. Well, almost anything. She can’t let go of what happened the night everything fell apart between them.
A look back on Reese and Bette’s relationship through the years shows what brought them to the point they are at today. Is their history enough to lead them into a future together, or is there too much heartbreak between them to move forward?

This book was excruciating to complete, but I did it. The narrator simply read the story aloud swiftly with no nuance or inflection or difference between character voices. And the story dragged for me. Reese and Bette meet when they are seven and become fast friends. Even their parents become fast friends. As teenagers they fall in love, but life’s difficulties, and their own immaturity keeps them apart. This happens repeatedly throughout the book. I do not recommend this book.
