As fate continues to play the lead role of the game, Parker develops into a new man, a man that Poppy isn't sure that she understands nor likes.

Together, Parker and Poppy must learn that love truly conquers all if there is any hope in saving their marriage.
I loved this novel! It is my first time ever reading a novel penned by Chantel Guertin but it won't be my last! There was nothing that I despised about this book! I loved how witty, strong and independent Poppy is and I related to her every step of the way. I also found it rather easy to sympathize with Parker and I think that readers will as well. I rooted and pleaded with Poppy and Parker to find their happily ever after ending and by doing so I think we all learn that second chances are possible with those that we deeply love and are committed to forgiving.
