Juan Pablo Campos doesn’t do regrets. He’s living the dream as a physical therapist with his beloved New York Yankees. He has the best friends and family in the world and simply no time to dwell on what could’ve been.
Except when it comes to Priscilla, the childhood friend he’s loved for what seems like forever.
New York City police detective Priscilla Gutierrez has never been afraid to go after what she wants. Second guessing herself isn’t a thing she does. But lately, the once-clear vision she had for herself—her career, her relationships, her life—is no longer what she wants.
What she especially doesn’t want is to be stuck on a private jet to the Dominican Republic with JuanPa, the one person who knows her better than anyone else.
By the end of a single week in paradise, the love/hate thing JuanPa and Pris have been doing for sixteen years has risen to epic proportions. No one can argue their connection is still there. And they can both finally admit—if only to themselves—they’ve always been a perfect match. The future they dreamed of together is still within reach...if they can just accept each other as they are.

This is a passionate story of two people, Juan Pablo and Priscilla, who have a long history together. Sometimes timing is everything. Sometimes one needs to do what's best for their personal growth. This is their story as they learn that eventually they need to fight for one another.
The writing is riveting with interesting characters. The author keeps the reader intrigued throughout this story of miscommunication, patience, encouragement, and personal growth. As well, the author excels in weaving together a story that explores family, culture, community, and diversity. It is slow at times but the connection between the characters will keep you reading.
I love the full cast of characters, who add immensely to this storyline.
Ultimately, this is a wonderful story of two childhood sweethearts who struggle to make their relationship work. Their connection is well worth the struggle.
