What do you do when you fall in love with your best friend’s boyfriend?

That is the question that twenty-six year-old Justine Sterling has been asking herself ever since the day she met David Whitman, her best friend Renee’s boyfriend. Justine is determined to ignore her growing feelings for the irresistibly charming David, until one night, when she finds herself in the bed of the one person she should stay away from.

When Justine and David’s affair ends in heartbreak, Justine is forced to repair the damaged friendship with her best friend. In doing so, she learns that right and wrong decisions aren’t always black and white, and sometimes you have to follow your heart to see where it leads.
I started reading this book and it took me almost half way through to really get into it and figure out where this story was going. I kept wondering what the point was to all of it but soon figured out that Justine was just trying to find her way and going through trials like everyone goes through. Regret and a broken heart hold Justine back from being able to move forward in her life and once she learns how to just be happy with what she has and what has been given to her, she also learns how to get over her past. It all worked hand in hand for her.

Justine is a young lady that is trying to find her way in the world after an internship. Justine wants to get a job and a nice apartment and start her own life on her own. In her past, Justine had done the ultimate wrong when she slept with her best friends boyfriend. Not only did she end up not having a best friend, but she ended up with a broken heart a year or so later. The whole lesson on if a guy is going to cheat with you on someone, especially your best friend, then he will cheat on you as well was very evident in this story.

Justine is back and forth between where she wants to live and work. It is not until her best friend, which was forgiving of her, has a daughter that she becomes the Godmother of that Justine realizes that "Home is definitely where the Heart is"! Justine has a lot of tough choices to make and she learns that she has to be happy with the choices she makes because that is the only way that she is going to be able to move on and make her future profitable.

I loved the way this book ended with a HEA for Justine after all she had been through. I thought that she deserved it. It goes to prove too that sometimes we have to make it through the rough spots to really appreciate the good stuff when we are handed it!! Thanks Rachel for this reminder!!
