In the midst of watching her best friend suffer, feelings that she thought she grew out of came rushing back to Zayn with being in such close quarters with Orion. Orion should not have been noticing the sexy, grown woman Zayn turned out to be. She was his daughter’s best friend, but with basically living under the same roof for two years, both caring for his daughter, Orion couldn’t fight off his attraction to Zayn. The two of them coming together could be a mistake, built on grief, or it could be what ties their souls and make their hearts whole again. Only time could tell how their story ends.
