Ten years ago, Larson Ireland’s wife was brutally murdered, and ever since then he’s been fighting to forget and numb his pain and anger.
Tasha Mackenzie made the biggest mistake of her life at the age of seventeen. Six years later she’s still trying to move on and start fresh. With parents that see her as a shameful sinner who disgraced them, the only thing that Tasha looks forward to is seeing Larson at the gym where she works.
Larson doesn’t think he’s good enough to ever be with anyone again, especially not a sweet woman like Tasha. He knows the darkness he carries inside will only hurt everyone in the end. But he wants Tasha, sees a vulnerability and innocence in her, and he wants desperately to let himself love again. Can Larson let go of his past and embrace a future with Tasha? Does he even want to risk it?
