How do two people who were meant to be move on from that once-in-a-lifetime love? Lacey has a strength inside her that comes alive with the things she's most passionate about. She's a fighter and a survivor, and she has everything she's ever wanted except the one thing that matters most-love. Karson is doing the one thing he loves most-playing hockey for the Assassins-yet he knows regret. He knows his life has been missing the one thing he walked away from so many years ago: Lacey. Nine years later, and neither has been able to succeed in moving on from what was, what could have been, and who each of their hearts still beats for. When a chance encounter during a fateful night has their paths crossing again, will the tether still attaching their souls allow them to face the past, present, and a possible future?Contains mature themes.
