Cyclone by Janie Crouch
This is an intense, suspenseful, romantic and thrilling story. Zac is a determined, caring and protective man who becomes haunted by his past the minute his dead wife's best friend looks at him in fear. Something happened between them, but he doesn't remember what. Anne is a strong, independent, quiet and vulnerable woman who likes to be invisible. Especially to the man who broke her heart and her spirit. But Zac won't let her hide, he needs to know what he did to make her fear him. Anne had developed feelings for Zac while he was with her best friend but never thought of acting on it. Zac eventually started to think of her as more than just his gf's best friend but hid it. After the funeral they were drinking and things got out of hand. The next day Zac went back overseas, and soon after that Anne moved to Florida. Now they're both back in town, still feeling the same way about the other, but not knowing if the past has can be overcome. The story and characters are fascinating and wonderful.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Hidden Gems. This is my honest and voluntary opinion of it.
