They both have secrets...But whose past will catch up to them first?

Shayna Gillan is on a mission: start fresh in a new state without the small town gossip that has haunted her since her bad girl days of high school.

Carter MacPherson has long been the most together member of his crazy family-until now. With a secret threatening to crumble everything he's worked for, he wishes he could forget the recent past, too.

The last thing Shayna and Carter are looking for is a relationship. It's best to be alone while they sort out their issues.

Friends. That's all they can ever be.

But even the best laid plans always have a flaw, and once Shayna and Carter cross the line between friendship and more, there's no turning back...

The only question left is-whose past will catch up to them first?

Editorial Reviews

Still Seeking Allies Blog - Fred LeBaron
“It's such a delicate and subtle book that I feel kind of dumb being so cheerleady about it - it's like breaking out the pom-poms for an Emily Dickinson poem or something. But it's hard to restrain my book-thusiasm about Quinn, and about Steph's gorgeous, spare but evocative style. It's not just her characters, it's the subtle way she creates them. It's not just her style, it's the emotional veracity and psychological depth of what she perceives and describes.”

What worked for me: Ok, I'll admit that Shayna wasn't my favorite character, but she did grow on me a bit. I definitely saw a softer more vulnerable side to her in this book. And I loved Carter, but that was no surprise. Together...I did like their relationship, but it leads me in to what didn't work for me.  What didn't work for me: Going in to this book, I felt like there was a lot of potential for these two characters. And while I do like them as a couple, I felt like something was missing. The story also felt a bit rushed to me.  Overall, I liked it, but didn't love it as much as I had hoped. I definitely a fan of Campbell's writing and I love this group of characters. I think one of the biggest wins for me was getting to see Quinn and Ben again. I just adore them. Adore. Them. So, would I recommend this one? I would. I think it you liked Grounding Quinn and Beautiful Things Never Last, you should read this one.  Quotes: "What about dinner?" I ask as he scoops me up into his arms and carries me to his bedroom. "You promised Quinn we'd bring dinner." "They'll figure out dinner for themselves. You just promised me dessert," he growls in my ear. "I met a girl who understood me without even realizing it. I met a girl whose presence shook me to my core. Who did all those cliched things like make me want to be a better man, just to have a shot with her." This isn't perfect. This is real. This...is home.
