What’s left when perfection is gone?Perfection slipped through Caroline Spencer’s fingers. One moment she had it all, and then it was gone. All she has left are her memories, her pain, and her close friends.
And Mason Ryan was not part of her plan–wasn’t even on her radar. After all, he was her husband’s best friend. But now that her husband is gone, he’s the only person who understands her, feels what she feels, and knows her inside and out.
Together, they try to rearrange the shattered pieces of their pain.
Sharing their grief pulls them closer together–closer than either of them want to admit and Mason won’t allow himself to fall for his best friend’s widow. Ultimately, he’s holding the one secret that will destroy Caroline–a secret he cannot even bear himself.
Will they find a way to refresh their lives when the pain of the past won’t dissolve?
Refresh is a touching friends to lovers story of loss, love and the journey to finding happiness again.
Caroline married the love of her life only to have him ripped away from her. She was left alone and devastated. She closed herself off and shut everyone out. Until her BFF, Mason, gives her no choice. He loves his best friend and is determined to help her find happiness again. Mason is perfect – supportive, caring and pushes just enough. He truly cares about her happiness.
There is a mystery in the story that adds an air of suspense to the book. It is done quite well and doesn’t become a distraction to the real story. However, some of it was a bit far-fetched. I can forgive that, because at its heart, Refresh, is a romance that made me feel. It ends was a sweet HEA.
“What?” I burst out laughing.
“Now listen to me. Sex and Mason are like desserts. There are many sides of Mason and sex consists of different positions all of this like dessert. You see a dessert case and there’s everything from fruit tarts to red velvet cake to brownies.”
“I’m getting hungry now, thanks.”
“Oh shut up,” Tonya laughs and continues with her ridiculous explanation. “These two things go hand in hand. So you can take your time and look at these yummy desserts the way you look at Mason and sex and then when you’re ready you’ll pick the best most delicious dessert and boom, you and Mason will be having boom boom time.”
“I can’t even with you.” I laugh and wipe my tears from laughing so hard. “You’re too much.”
