Broken hearts, deep secrets, and a special kind of love
Reviewed in the United States on August 10, 2018
Ava is a shell of her former self. She is skin and bones, wearing drab clothes, smoking, and running herself ragged. The one thing that is absolutely the same, her love for her ex-husband Griffin. She just couldn't torment him any longer after what happened and she couldn't tell him what happened either. She also left nursing school and works as a maid at the manor and takes care of her father who is wheelchair bound after an accident and a nasty drunk.
Griffin, a recently retired Navy Seal, didn't even recognize Ava when he came home for his GG's funeral. Lexi, his second ex-wife didn't care much for Ava and asked her for towels even though they had plenty. After a bit of time at home though, Griffin realizes he never stopped loving Ava. He gets a call from Lexi telling him she needs to talk to him but will only do so in person. He needs to go back to Virginia to wrap things up any way. Finally, Lexi comes over and surprise she is pregnant. It was from a deal they had made when they divorced three years ago, that if she wasn't still single and not pregnant by 39, Griffin would be her sperm donor. It go weird quick and they ended it but a baby was made. Lexi has no family and suggest they all move to Harmony Harbor and for Griffin to be a part of his child's life. The only stipulation is he not have any contact with Ava.
Once back in Harmony Harbor, Griffin comes up with a plan to bring the two women together. Griffin soon realizes his plan worked really well when the two women become best friends with Ava forgetting she has plans with Griffin. It also turns out the two ladies end up sharing their deep dark secrets with one another leading them to be each others heroes.
