Praised for its "cutting-edge dialogue, intriguing characters, and a spicy storyline,"* Electa Rome Parks’s The Ties That Bind introduced a savagely honest look at modern romance. Now, in a back-to-back publishing event, Parks returns with her next novel of love and friendship and the betrayals of both-some forgiven, some never forgotten.

It’s been five years since they trusted one another-and betrayed one another- only as friends and lovers could. Beautiful Mia, getting a second chance at love. Christian, who gave up his player card for the one woman he’s not sure he can trust. And Brice, as irresistibly bad as ever. One woman can tame him-if he’d give her the chance: Kree, innocent but underestimated, and looking for the kind of passion that can change a life. When she finds it, it’s going to come with a price. Sometimes, it doesn’t take a lot to tear apart friends like these. All it takes is love.
