What do you do when life gives you a second chance at love? Do you grab it or do you run? Josslyn loved her husband but always felt as if something was missing. She longed for something more in their love life but now that her husband has passed away can Josslyn look for what she wants? Little does Josslyn realize it but what she wants is within her reach. Her husband’s best friend may just be the man that can give her what she needs. Dash has always loved Josslyn but never acted on his feelings for his friend’s wife but when he sees her at a club for those seeking more than plain vanilla sex he will not stand idly by. Can he prove to Josslyn that he is the man for her?

I loved meeting Josslyn and Dash. Letting go not only gives readers a hot read but it also gives us a beautiful romance that will tug at your heart.  Dash is a standup guy. He has loved Josslyn from a far never doing anything about it but when he sees her on another man’s arm all bets are off. Years have passed since her husband’s death and Dash is ready to show Josslyn the man he can be for her. Josslyn is a strong woman who goes after what she wants. Yet the two must work through their past before they can move on to their future. I enjoyed watching the two find their way to their happy ever after. There is so much emotion in this story. They must deal with so much but the two fight their way to love. This is a wonderful story of two hearts coming together and learning to move forward with their lives. I was pulled into Dash and Josslyn’s story right from the start. Love is never easy and these two have a time of it.  Josslyn wants to move on but she is having a hard time of it and Dash continues to fight the ghost of his friend. Yet their love is strong and had me rooting for them to find happiness. I was glad I got to visit their world and hope that the next book is just as sweet as this one is.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
