Author: Meredith Wild
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Haunted by the responsibility of caring for her troubled family, Maya Jacobs gave the only answer she could when Cameron asked her to marry him.  Years later, entrenched in a soulless professional routine, she distracts herself from the lingering regret of her decision with a “work hard, play hard” lifestyle that guarantees no man will ever find his way into her heart again.
Cameron Bridge has spent the past five years married to the military, trying to escape the painful memory of losing Maya. After fighting his own war in the desert, he starts a new life in New York City, with his siblings, Olivia and Darren, by his side.
When fate brings Maya back to him in the heart of a city filled with its own hopes and shadows, can Cameron find the girl he once loved in the woman she’s become?

Erin's Review 

 If you read Meredith Wild's Hacker Series, be prepared...this is NOT the Hacker series. Cameron and Maya's story is sad, heartbreaking, frustrating and a reunion that you aren't quite sure is ever going to happen.
After turning down Cameron's proposal, Maya lost herself. She drank hard and partied harder. She didn't get attached to anything other than the drink in her hand and that suited her just fine. You get the sense she is operating on auto-pilot and isn't really living. You just want to grab her and shake her out of her funk and make her believe she is worthy of love.
Cameron walked away from the love of his life. He wanted to marry Maya, it was that simple. He didn't care that she didn't come from money, he just wanted her. He threw himself in to his military career, then when that was over, started a gym, just blocks away from Maya's apartment. He never forgot her and like Maya, threw himself in to his job to mask the pain.
After a chance meting with Cameron's sister, Maya is faced with emotions she fought like hell to avoid. A chance yoga session with her bff/roommate brings her face to face with the one person that could either be her downfall, or save her from herself.
This story is just as much Cam's as it is Maya's. Both are trying to live their lives but just can't move on. Meredith addresses the very real subject of alcoholism in a very real way that makes you think it really could happen to anyone. Maya frustrates you to no end. She has every excuse in the book why she needs that drink, and every time she does, it gets her in to nothing but trouble. Cam is the one person that calls her on her problem and doesn't accept excuses. He may mess up and you just want to groan and say, "WHY CAM WHY?!?!" but his heart is in the right place.
Through their journey they find that their initial pact of being "just friends" is going to be much harder than they thought.
The supporting characters are amazing!! Eli quickly became my favorite. Everyone needs an Eli. Vanessa is the girlfriend you love to hang with. She's your go to girl. These two, along with Cam's brother, Darren help our couple realize what they have is real, they just both have to take a chance.
The one thing I love about this story is that it is very....real. It's emotional, it's frustrating, it will have you crying tears of sadness and joy by the end.
Meredith Wild proves once again that she is a force to be reckoned with in the literary world. Certainly one of my Top 10 so far this year.
