The perfect resume—check.
Finally finished with her Master’s degree, Olivia Barrett is ready to start a new chapter in her life. Graduating at the top of her class, she’s one step closer to landing her dream job and has the man she plans to spend the rest of her life with. Things are looking up—that is, until she walks in on her boyfriend of seven years, Evan Gallagher, cheating on her with her college roommate.
Hurt and confused, she escapes to her safe haven. Davis Park, Fire Island has always held the greatest memories for her growing up and now seems to be no different. While trying to forget Evan, she runs into a beautiful man with bright blue eyes and the cutest dimple.
Chase Remington is everything she’s always looked for in a man, and even though she knows things are moving too fast, she can’t help but find herself drawn to him in ways she’s never experienced.
When things start to heat up, Olivia finds herself at a crossroads. Torn between a history she can’t ignore and a future that may never exist, she has to make a choice—only, it’s never that easy. Can she deny the man who has owned her heart for so long, or will she decide the future is worth the leap?

Jillian Anselmi resides on Long Island, (not in Long Island), with her husband and teenage daughter. She studied pharmacy, but decided it wasn't the right fit for her and instead pursued a degree in chemistry. After receiving her masters in education she pursued a career in teaching, but there was always something missing. As a young girl she read an incredible amount of books, reading over a hundred during the summer of her third grade year. After that she would write poetry or dabble in short stories. Now, she writes romantic fiction, with some small amount of truth hiding behind her words. If you want to make her happy, surprise her with dark chocolate, a Starbucks Caramel Macchiato, or a good Sauvignon Blanc.
