He’s only a friend. 
Those words had haunted him from the moment Jessie James had heard them muttered from the one girl, above all others, that he thought had his back. 
Sixteen years later, he still feels those words like a brand on his soul. 
Lucky for him he has a son to take care of, a full-time job that demands every single second of the day, and not a single moment to spare for the likes of a woman that won’t stand up for him when he needs her the most. 
He’s only a friend. 
The words had slipped out of Ellen’s mouth, and before she could recall them or better yet, explain, Jesse is gone from her life for good, taking her heart with him. 
She tries to find her way out of the pit of despair, but not one single person, no matter how much she tries, can fill the void that he left in his wake. Time heals all wounds. Or at least that is how the saying goes. It’s a crock of crap, though.
Sixteen years pass when Jessie and Ellen see each other again without the influence of the town and bad memories surrounding them, and it’s as if not a single day has passed. 
Ellen knows the instant that her eyes see her old love that she’s still just as much in love with him today as she was all those years ago. The problem is that Jesse wants nothing to do with her. Or at least that’s what he keeps telling himself.

If there's one thing that i love about the Dixie Warden Rejects MC series, it's the fact that no matter where you are in it, you will always be able to catch up on the characters whose story you read beforehand and finally understand what happened to the ones who we saw in passing. The previous instalment in the series, Seas was hurt by Ellen after she broke up with him and we finally know why she did it and the circumstances behind Sean's hatred toward Jessie.

I gobbled this story. Like, "I'll read one more chapter and then go to bed right after this one [and end up reading 80% of it 4 hours later but it was totally worth it]" gobbled it. Jessie and Ellen's story was unexpected and i hadn't expected to love it as much as i did, especially since i had read Sean and Naomi's story not too long ago and may have been biased after their point of view. I wanted and still do want to know more of this MC - these character are so very fascinating and Lani Lynn Vale absolutely knows how to pen a captivating story.
