What is that saying? You don’t know what you’ve got, until you lose it. Well, Jackson and Laney (his name for Erica) both never saw what everyone else that knew them did.

While away on their camping trip, they will discover that the friendship they had wasn’t ready to develope into a relationship until the right time. And that time is now.
This is by far my favorite of the series. Cooper and Cici had a whirlwind romance while photographing an event. The just know that they belonged with each other. The parted ways with a promise of forever, but when Cooper went home, he life was changed forever. Cici had her life thrown upside down, turned around, and her heart broke.
Three and a half years later, she is back at that same event. Part of her wants to see him, the other half doesn’t. Cooper is back at the same event he met Cici years before.
“You are my destiny. My Strength. The very air that I breathe.” Those were the last words he told her before they parted. OMG, if some guy told me that, I would have gone home with him! Now that they are face to face, feelings come back, they really didn’t leave, but were buried behind pain. I was crying through parts of this book. When he follows Cici home……tears.
But the marriage proposal changes everything, and their annual camping trip takes unexpected turns. Will a few nights in the wilderness set these friends with benefits free, or lead them on a path of destruction?
