Meredith Hall has a secret. Every night she takes the ferry to meet Ben, her best friend and first love. Though their relationship must remain a secret, they’ve been given a second chance, and Mer's determined to make it work. She lost Ben once before and discovered the awful reality: she doesn't know how to be happy without him…
Until Wyatt washes ashore―a brash new guy with a Texas twang and a personality bigger than his home state. He makes her feel reckless, excited, and alive in ways that cut through her perpetual gloom. The deeper they delve into each other’s pasts, the more Wyatt’s charms become impossible to ignore.
But a storm is brewing in the Outer Banks. When it hits, Mer finds her heart tearing in half and her carefully constructed reality slipping back into the surf. As she discovers that even the most deeply buried secrets have a way of surfacing, she’ll have to learn that nothing is forever―especially second chances.

This book... it's everything! On one hand, I was left speechless once I finished it. On the other hand, I had all of the words to say about this book. Fleet has topped herself in this one! I loved her debut book, and this one surpassed it by a long shot!
I saw somewhere in a starred review that said, "A heartbreaking love triangle, for readers who can’t stand love triangles." It is the perfect embodiment of this story. Holy heck it is not the love triangle you are imagining in your mind. It's its own unique version of a love triangle that will blow your mind!
I am struggling for words right now. I can't really say all of the things I want to say. I don't want to spoil this book at all. It needs to be taken in page by page without any knowledge of what it really is.
What I can say is I cried. Legit, sobbed for about that last twenty percent of this book. Before that, I had a warm heart and a smile on my face more times than I can count. I do admit, I was torn for a bit. But then it happened... the turning point in this book that broke my heart and put it back together over and over again.
This book takes you through the earth shattering parts of love, loss, healing, and moving forward in such a way, you won't be able to tell what is up and what is down. The journey to heal is not pretty, but it will end beautifully.
