He calms me.
An unexpected long-distance friendship showed Gracelyn Dewey the ease of some relationships. Very few people could get past her walls and even then, fewer had the ability to see through her anxieties. With him, she finds more—but circumstances wouldn’t allow them to keep it. Instead, they find an easy friendship with one another. Until it wasn’t easy any more.

She grounds me.
In his line of work, Sawyer Meadows sees some gut wrenching things. He sees broken people, wounded people, fearful people. He loves his job, yet is losing a piece of himself in the mix. But there was always her. Drawn to her quiet smile, he has always known she was meant to be something special to him. A fact that became painfully evident when she found someone else to hold her.

Somewhere along the way, we lost it.
They are given one weekend together to fix their friendship. The days can’t go off without any hitches though. When her recent past and his career collide, they’ll have to decide—is the distance enough to keep them apart? Or are they through letting everything else dictate their happiness?

She’s my saving grace, and I plan on saving her in the process.

While this is the first book in a new series, it does help to read Ms. Mykel's Prescott family series to have an understanding of Grace and Sawyer's history and the secondary characters who are featured in this story.

Sawyer Meadows is a homicide detective in Salt Lake City and is best friends with Grace Dewey, who is close friends with Sawyer's sister Sydney. Their history is a bit backwards, but they were able to make the friendship work, especially as Sawyer really "sees" Grace and is the calming presence she needs. Grace is soothing balm for Sawyer, who is slowly being worn down by the nature of his job; he loves it, but just knowing what humans are capable of doing to each other is beginning to break him down. I also love Sawyer's relationship with his family, he's the big brother you want to have.

They're both so perfect for each other, it's no wonder Sydney kept trying to get them to realize it. This is a fantastic friends-to-lovers story, that while on the shorter side lengthwise, Ms. Mykel is still able to paint a vivid picture for you while you're reading it.



Mignon Mykel is the author of the Prescott Family series, as well as the short-novella erotic romance series, O’Gallagher Nights. When not sitting at Starbucks writing whatever her characters tell her to, you can find her hiking in the mountains of her new home in Arizona.
