Recently fired attorney, Becca Lynch, only came home to Cape Cod, Massachusetts to strap on a bridesmaid dress and accompany an old friend down the aisle. Just one week of pretending that her life’s great and she’s not secretly falling apart. A complication of the male variety is the last thing she wants.

But passion doesn't worry about bad timing, and love can prove a more uncontrollable force than any ocean wave.
