Return to the beloved beach town of Cliffside Bay, where USA Today bestseller Tess Thompson spins another emotional, intriguing tale about overcoming adversity and finding strength in love in this standalone story about Lisa and Rafael.

After years of struggling as a starving actor, Lisa Perry's dreams are finally coming true. Splitting her time between Los Angeles and Cliffside Bay, the young beauty has a successful television miniseries, her first movie role, and quality time with her best friends Maggie and Pepper. Everything is coming up roses until a single tragic moment changes Lisa forever.

Haunted by unshakable memories and near-crippling anxiety, Lisa must face a publicity tour full of crowds and interviews in order to move her budding career forward. And with the help of Rafael Soto, the head of security for Brody and Kara Mullen, she finally begins to relax. Though the pair are as different as night and day, something about her temporary bodyguard soothes the young actress, and soon their relationship turns from professional to passionate.

But what neither anticipates is that despite the obvious threats to a beautiful ingenue, it's actually her protector who stands in harm's way. Will Lisa and Rafael be able to face the danger awaiting him together, or are they destined to accept yet another tragedy they can't stop?

USA Today bestselling author Tess Thompson welcomes you back to Cliffside Bay to explore the rich, heartwarming stories of the characters who brightened the original five novels in the series. Each book in the Cliffside Bay Series is intended to be read and enjoyed as a sweet standalone, but for maximum enjoyment read this binge-worthy series in order.

A new chapter for the Cliffside Bay series begins here. A new group is forming. Rafael, the head of security for Brody and Kara, is building a life in Cliffside Bay. An ex-Navy Seal he is a bit of a loner type. Lisa, an actress friend of Maggie's, is splitting her time between working on acting roles and spending time in town with her friends. When tragedy strikes the two come together in a tumultuous way. Will they be able to move past their demons and find peace together? Read and find out. Tess did it again! I have had the privilege to read this whole series, and this was another GREAT story. I loved it. Rafael is a character I can relate to because my husband was in the military. I have been around a soldier that has faced things. Lisa is a character that I can relate to personally. I'm shy and not very open to the world, but in my opinion, I have a huge heart just like her. I loved them both. I loved their romance. This story is packed with drama and romance. You get a blend of new and old characters. It was written in a way that you can't help but love. As I said, I have read this whole series, and each book gets better. Missed was my favorite one yet. Overall, I can sum this book up in one word... AMAZING!

I loved this triumphant return to Cliffside Bay! This author has a real talent for taking people who don't think that they're right for each other and showing just how well-suited they are deep down. I love how totally honest, transparent, and vulnerable Rafael and Lisa are with each other, and just with each other. It shows true emotional intimacy, and establishes that as a solid foundation for their relationship. The tragedies that color their outlook in life are both in the present and recalled from the past. Each is sensitively handled, and helps us to understand the emotional wounds they are recovering from. The romance itself is sweet and soul-satisfying, even without as many of the intimate details as we've seen in earlier books in this series. As the first in this new phase of the series, we're introduced to all five of the Wolves as well as the circumstances that bring them together and the foundation that will bind them even more in the future. We have a few new faces added to the mix, and hints that some familiar characters will be getting their shot at an HEA in future books. I'm hooked already, and can't wait to read more in this captivating world. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

Welcome to Cliffside Bay. It can either break your heart, uplift your soul or help you find your way home. If your lucky, it can help you do all three. Thompson is back with more heartache and drama in the tiny town were hearts do to heal. Missed is the beginning of a second chance for two broken hearts that have lost their way. Lisa and Rafael find reason in the painful and support in each others arms. I always walk into a Tess Thompson novel, knowing I'll leave a piece of my heart behind when it's over.
