Lives shattered

Sean McKenna joined the Coast Guard to save lives. Now a flight mech, he loves living and operating in the wilds of Alaska. When a mission goes terribly wrong, Sean is badly injured. But no pain can compare to the guilt he feels over the loss of his best friend. It was Sean's job to keep Justin, the rescue swimmer, safe. Now Justin is dead, leaving his wife, Eden, without a husband and their toddler son, Maverick, without a father. The best Sean can do is step up and help Eden in any way he can. As the months go by, he finds himself fighting a growing attraction to her. He knows people on base are talking. What kind of man hooks up with his best friend's widow? But the heart wants what it wants, and this desire can't be denied—because it’s mutual.

A heart torn

Eden Koseki loved Justin from the moment he jumped out of a hovering helicopter, swam to shore, and asked her for her name and number. She thought they had all the time in the world. Losing him and the future they'd planned together is more devastating than she could have imagined. It's only the support of her family—and Sean's steadfast presence—that get her through those first months of overpowering grief. But as the weeks pass, she feels unexpectedly drawn to him. When she's with him, she's able to smile and laugh again—especially while watching him play with little Maverick. Still, her emotions leave her torn between loyalty to Justin's memory and the living, breathing man who makes her feel alive again.

A second chance… if they're both brave enough to take it

As winter turns to summer and snow turns to rain, the heat between Sean and Eden intensifies. So does the gossip in town. Still, Eden isn't about to let anyone interfere in her business. She knows now just how fragile life can be. When Sean's sense of duty threatens to keep them apart, Eden knows she must help him move past his survivor's guilt—or risk losing this second chance at deep love and lasting happiness.







 I like that I can talk with you about him. Some people don't want me to mention him at all. It's as if he's been erased or something.



 who can say what is right for another? Life is short, and it does no one good to be lonely. Justin loved you, and I think he would want you to be happy. Honor his memory by living a full and happy life.



 You can never know the burdens another person is carrying.

故事背景發生在阿拉斯加的Kodiak Island,是美國僅次於夏威夷的第二大島,Eden是當地人。

事件漁船所製的毒是methamphetamine 甲基安非他命,依據介紹:

Illicitly manufactured meth is usually made by combining ephedrine or pseudoephedrine with other chemicals that are often poisonous or highly flammable. (中略) The heating process is particularly dangerous, as there is significant risk of fire and explosion.   source

小說裡提到他們在cooking meth,應該是已經到加熱階段。


書中Sean看到Eden收藏的羅曼史小說封面時OS: “The front was an image of a ripped guy with no chest hair, the surf behind him. He looked ready to fight—or fuck.So, these were the kinds of books Eden enjoyed.”
