Amicable could easily define Carly Cooper, so it's only fitting that it should describe her divorce from detective Trey Foster, too. Between two career-driven people, marriage can be hard enough, but combined with fertility issues and constant loss, it just became too much for them to bear.

While sorting out her feelings about her broken marriage and seemingly broken body, she decides to move in with her lifelong best friend, Alejandro Cruz. Alex has been with Carly through all her triumphs as well as her low points, including the break-up with her first love, Josh McCarthy, whom Alex is still friends with.

Carly just wants to get to a point where she can get closure from all her relationships so she can succeed at one - just one that she can keep forever. Determined to help her do that, Alex invites Josh to their house for a "besties" get together weekend. Good food, good wine, and good conversation.

Fortunately for the three of them, closure is exactly what they all get, and for the first time in their lives, they can move forward. After all, Josh has really exciting news that he wants to share with his best friends: South Station Boyz are reuniting. With a new album, new videos, and even a new tour on the horizon, they invite Carly and Alejandro to join them and the Trainwreckz, the tongue-in-cheek nickname for their fans, on this crazy journey.

While trying to prove her closure to herself and others, she becomes quite enthralled with handsome group member (and band mate of Josh), Dave Butler. He returns the interest and sparks fly. Then, one unplanned, reckless night (something that goes against Carly's very own DNA) in Miami derails all her hard work, possibly throwing everything into the wind. As she tries to sort it out, she also battles to not lose the people she loves. Can what she's done while under one drunken indulgence ruin everything she's worked so hard to fix after all this time?

About the Author

Mel Henry has been an avid reader since stealing her first Harlequin from her mom's nightstand in second grade. Because some words were too big for her seven-year-old vocabulary, she took to writing her own stories (much to the relief of her teacher) and has been doing so ever since.
After having held various jobs in her life that brought her no satisfaction and only a piddly income, she decided to publish her first book. She figured being a starving artist instead of just starving sounded much more interesting. Being able to do it in her pajamas and without make-up are just perks to the job.
Living in Iowa with her husband and two teenaged daughters, Mel's an avid cook (sometimes by choice), seasoned traveler (always by choice), and a hardcore warrior against chronic Lyme disease (definitely not by choice). She loves live theater, thunderstorms, and good tea. She loathes conspiracy theories, egotistical people, and sushi.
She is currently collaborating with three other authors on a project, and has the foundation in place for her next series. In the meantime, you can find her current works on Amazon and other online booksellers.

This isn't a stand alone and you must read "Distance and Time", followed by "Better in Time" for the series to make sense. This is Mel Henry's best book yet!

Oh man. I don't even know what to say about this without giving away any spoilers. This was the perfect ending for this story. Josh and Carly have been on an absolute rollercoaster for the last almost twenty years. Through that whole time, they've never stopped loving each other, even if it seems like they don't. In a weird twist, they're the steadiest relationship in the series, even if they have their ups and downs. They both want the other to be happy, even if that means letting go. While heartbreaking in the moment, they always find their way back to each other. These books have all the feels, and most of the time I find myself grinning like an idiot while reading. Carly and Josh are so adorable, and it's the greatest to read about a girl getting her ultimate wish: falling in love with a boy bander that falls right back for her. This book showcases a more adult Carly and Josh learned to navigate their strange friendship as Josh's bandmate courts Carly and Josh deals with his wife, Abby, and their demanding relationship. And there's more Alex! You don't even know how much I love this guy, and you're going to be mad about him from the moment you start this series. Or maybe you already are, and then you know exactly how I feel. Alex is the best. He's amazing. Awesome. Magnificient. I don't think there's enough adjectives in the world for how great Alex is. He keeps Carly grounded when she needs and smacks sense into her even when she thinks she knows what she's doing. He's the bestest best friend a girl can have, and Carly is infinitely lucky. Following these two in the last two books made me appreciate the efforts they made. They tried to be adults the best way they knew how, while simultaneously having a good time with their separate endeavors. Carly is a successful businesswoman going through a tough time with her divorce, but she always comes out on top. I get what Josh sees in her. Life isn't always easy, but Carly manages to smile through it anyway. And Josh. Josh, in my mind, is a mixture of all those gorgeous boy band members from my youth wrapped up in one delicious package. It would have been impossible for me not to absolutely fall in love with him, and then add the Boston accent (which is totally endearing), he hooks you in no time. BUT THEN THE FEELS PUNCH YOU RIGHT IN THE FACE.
