They were friends—just friends. Now they’re something else entirely…

Maggie was my best friend’s girl. When he died… I don’t have the words. Indescribable pain.
But we healed. Together. She got me through my illness and became my friend, my confidant, my family. She’s everything to me.
And I ruined it all last night.
One drunken night. That’s all it took. Now I’m lost.
I want her with everything I am, everything I have, but she can’t be mine. She deserves someone with better odds than the doctors gave me.
Now, if I can’t figure out how to go back to the way things were, I’ll lose the most important relationship I have. The only one that truly matters.

Last night was the best—and worst—night of my life.
He’s made it clear, more than once, that he only wants a friendship.
Then last night happened.
And now he knows how I feel.
He’s my best friend. I love him —mind, body, and soul. We have a visceral connection others can’t understand.
The problem? He’ll always see me as his best friend’s girlfriend, no matter how many years pass.
I can’t lose him. If he wants to stay in the friend zone, I’ll need to somehow accept that and move on. I know it’s true.
But convincing my heart…well, that’s another story entirely.

One night of excess tequila changes everything for two codependent best friends. Will they lose all they had, or can they find their way to something even better?

*I received this copy in exchange for an honest opinion*

I have to be very sincere and admit that this story, in the beginning, did not seem to bring anything new. However, as I read and understood the main characters, Jason and Maggie, I was also captivated by the story that they told us.
The story between two best friends, united for more than twelve years by a common loss, Adam.
Adam was Maggie's boyfriend and one of Jason's best friends. They met in a somewhat awkward way since they both had cancer and both fled off the same meeting to support those who suffered from the disease. Even earlier, Jason had met Maggie, although he didn't know when he would see her again. When he found out that she was the girlfriend of his most recent friend, it seems to me that he was a little disappointed and upset about his own luck.
When Adam dies, Jason feels guilty. He felt what we now call "survivor's guilt". It seemed to him that, Adam, having parents who loved him and a girlfriend like Maggie, deserved more to have survived than he, who had nothing and nobody, not even his parents.
It turns out that, over the years, Jason and Maggie become inseparable and everyone around them where just waiting for the time when both he and she would admit that they are together, because that's all that's missing.
Honestly, for those who had such a sincere and strong friendship like them, it should be paramount to put their feelings for each other, without fear. If Maggie is absolutely sure that he is the love of her life, Jason, in turn, hides behind the fact that she was Adam's girlfriend and that his cancer can come back and he will not be able to give her the life that she wants.
It will take a lot of willpower and a lot of resilience (and patience) on Maggie's part to overcome Jason's resistance and make him realize that in life not everything is destined, nor that everything is programmed, even if it is not the health problem that he had and that he will always have to deal with, if it has to be.
