Alone in the world, Tae Holmes and her mother April pretty much raised each other, but as Tae starts asking questions about the father she’s never met, April, for the first time in her life, goes silent. To make matters worse, Tae is dangerously close to broke and just manages to avoid financial meltdown when she lands a shiny new contract with an adventure company for athletes with disabilities and wounded warriors.
Her first big fundraiser event falls flat, but what starts out as a terrible, horrible, no-good night turns into something else entirely when Tae finds herself face-to-face with Riggs Copeland. She hasn’t seen the former Marine since their brief fling in high school, and while still intensely drawn to him, she likes her past burned and buried, thank you very much. Hence their friendship pact.
But when April oddly refuses to help Tae track down her father, it’s Riggs who unexpectedly comes to her aid. On a hunt to unlock the past, the two of them find themselves on a wild ride and learn a shocking truth, while also reluctantly bonding in a way neither had seen coming. Now Tae must decide whether she’s going to choose love … or walk away from her own happiness.
The Friendship Pact is the second book in the Sunrise Cove series by Jill Shalvis. This story is about learning from your mistakes, growing and finally making decisions about where you want your life to go. Tae and her mom, April have been a team for a long time. Just the two of them against the world. Sometimes Tae was more of the mom in the relationship, but it works for them. Until Tae finds out her mom might have been lying to her since she was a child. She also runs into Riggs, and old friend from high school and they still have chemistry and sparks. Riggs is going through his own issues, leaving the military, coming home temporarily to help his brother. Tae and Riggs can’t seem to stay away from each other, the pull is just too much. But they both have things going on and don’t realize having someone at your side will ease the burden. Just when everything seems to be settling, the past comes back and shakes up everyone’s lives. Riggs has a big decision to make. Tae has to decide to let her anger go. Will they admit their feelings before it’s too late? I just loved these characters! Not only do we get Tae and Riggs’ story, we also get to see April grow up and take charge of her own life. We get to know Riggs’ brother, Jake and his girlfriend and I loved the interaction between Riggs and Jake. Such brotherly love and anger. All of these characters came from tough backgrounds, but they became better people and worked for what they want. I loved Tae and Riggs’ second chance at love and the fun, witty banter between them. Overall, I laughed, teared up and wanted to smack a few of them! Looking forward to more from the series.
