Lorin Perez's life is finally back on track after almost losing it six years ago. She knows meeting and dating sizzling hot professional rugby player Spence Clarke is a huge part of her healing process. But with her father starting a new family, she decides to follow her best friend Caitlin to UK--Spence's home country--and start a new life.

However, moving to UK brings certain complications in the form of Gezellig band member Nigel Whitmore, a.k.a. the one who didn't follow through three years ago. And even though Lorin is very clear about her no commitment rule, Nigel ignores this and pursues Lorin like never before.

Caught between the man who made her feel safe and the one who makes her feel alive, will she finally be able to set her heart free and make the right choice?

“Hmm,” Nigel said, his face thoughtful. “So why aren’t you dating anyone?”

“Who said I wasn’t?” I said rather defensively.

“Well,” he began, placing his beer bottle on the floor next to him. “I sense that there is this wall that you don’t want anyone to break into.”

I raised an eyebrow. “What if I’m just cautious? You can never have anyone too close without them hurting you.” I cleared my throat. “Besides, I’m still young. We are still young. I think we both have the license to enjoy more than one person’s company than just get stuck in one committed relationship.”

Nigel smirked. “You say that but I think you’re the type of woman who values loyalty and faithfulness. This,” he said, gesturing to me, “is just a front.”

I narrowed my eyes at him, my smile mocking. Jesus, was I that transparent? “Didn’t know you can read people this well, Mr. Whitmore. Where is this psychobabble coming from? Careful; it scares people away if you read them too well.”

Nigel let out a harrumph, and then said, “The truth is always scary, Lorin.”

He placed his hand on top of mine, and I looked at our hands instead of his face. His gaze was getting a little too intense for me. 

“So are you scared because I’m hitting all the right buttons?” he asked.

I pulled out my hand from underneath his and looked at him, accepting the challenge in his gaze. “There was this time in my life that I did, you know?” I didn’t know why but once the words were out there, I couldn’t stop. I felt challenged, like I had to prove him wrong, but I knew I wouldn’t be able to.

“I valued loyalty. I even valued honesty, and I still value it up to now, so thanks for all the things that you’re throwing at me.” I sighed heavily, then plowed on.

“But I also valued making the effort and keeping promises. If you say that you’re going to make it work, then make it work. You just don’t disappear on me because you couldn’t figure out how to make it work anymore. You say something. And it should come from you, not from other people, because the only thing that hurts far more than being left on your own is realizing that you weren’t even worth an explanation. And people deserve that. No matter how bullshit the explanation may be, people deserve to know why they can’t be good enough for you anymore.”

I kept his gaze as I breathed heavily, trying to calm myself down. Stupid, stupid Day of Mourning. Why did it fall tonight when I was in Sydney with the biggest boy band in the world? Why did I have to feel like this on the night when I was with one of my biggest crushes?

Nigel just stared at me, and for a moment I thought I scared him with my outburst, but then he reached up and cupped my face in his hands. Those eyes penetrated through me, like I was a puzzle he couldn’t quite crack just yet. When he spoke, his voice a whisper, confusion evident in his tone.

“Who hurt you?”
