Description:

When Maze returns to Wildstone for the wedding of her estranged bff and the sister of her heart, it’s also a reunion of a once ragtag team of teenagers who had only each other until a tragedy tore them apart and scattered them wide.

Now as adults together again in the lake house, there are secrets and resentments mixed up in all the amazing childhood memories. Unexpectedly, they instantly fall back into their roles: Maze their reckless leader, Cat the den mother, Heather the beloved baby sister, and Walker, a man of mystery.

Life has changed all four of them in immeasurable ways. Maze and Cat must decide if they can rebuild their friendship, and Maze discovers her long-held attraction to Walker hasn’t faded with the years but has only grown stronger.

Review:

I've enjoyed Jill Shalvis' books in the past so when I saw this in The Works I decided to pick this up.

It starts with Maze sitting at the grave of her foster brother and being joined by her foster siblings - Caitlin, Heather and Walker - as they remember the little boy who died. They squabble and it's only three years later when Caitlin is getting married that they all meet up again to be there for her on her big day. Things have changed for everyone but Maze's attraction to Walker is still there and strong and when Walker spills some truths, she has no idea how to take them.

This one pulled me in from the start. I loved how the four of them were so close and teased each other over little things they'd shared. They'd also shared a tragedy which was keeping them together and pushing them away at times, too. The friendship and love these four shared was amazing and I really enjoyed this one. Probably my favourite book by this author so far.

The romance between Maze and Walker was great. The connection they shared was really intense and I liked how Walker slowly wore her walls down and rather quickly. The other couple was good, too, but I won't spoil it by naming names. 

From the start I wasn't sure about Dillon. The author did a good job of writing a nice guy but one who wasn't seeing the signs of Caitlin's unhappiness. I thought it was really well done because I actually still liked the guy by the end, despite him being a bit dense.

I will definitely be keeping my eyes open for more books by this author in the future.
