Micah Hudson and Jude MacMillian were both lonely teenagers. One the new kid and one the target of relentless bullying, they quickly became friends. But when friendship grew into more, the relationship was too much for either to handle. As their tenuous bond was tested, everything tumbled down, leaving them lonely once again.
A decade later, Micah is on the brink of losing his will to live. Beyond exhausted from lying to everyone, including himself, Micah thinks of the one person who knows his deepest secret. Desperate and alone, Micah makes the only decision he feels he has: he must leave. But his need for closure depends on one thing.
Can Jude make room in his Unsteady life for Micah once again?

Melissa Collins has always been a book worm. Studying Literature in college ensured that her nose was always stuck in a book. She followed her passion for reading to the most logical career choice: English teacher. Her hope was to share her passion for reading and the escapism of books to her students. Having spent more than a decade in front of a classroom, she can easily say that it’s been a dream. Her passion for writing didn’t start until more recently. When she was home on maternity leave in early 2012, she read her first romance novel and her head filled with the passion, angst and laughter of the characters who she read about it. It wasn’t long before characters of her own took shape in her mind. Their lives took over Melissa’s brain and The Love Series was born.

Wendy's Review: While I love friends to lovers books this one threw me for a big loop, it had a big nope on my "Don't ever do" check list. While I don't like misunderstandings or miscommunication issues in books I always understand they are what sell books and they really do make the story continue to flow to get to the HEA. 
I'm not saying I hated this book, it had some great things in it, I liked young Jude and Micah, but again we go back to the miscommunication issues. I truly think they should have been together the whole time but Jude let someone else dictate how his life and feelings were going to go for him. A lie, he believed a lie?
Then you have young Micah, who let his father run his life and he "had" to join the military. 
I wanted both men to make stronger decisions about themselves and each other without outside influences deciding what was best for them or even for their relationship- past or present. 
Micah and his actions, with or without the diagnosis of PTSD were selfish even with his internal dialogue telling himself he knows what he is doing was wrong. 
I did like how the author took care in embracing the fact that Micah opened up to Jude about his arm, how he let him take care of it, removing his prosthetic and seeing him without it. 
Delilah and the ending, I'm sorry I just can't even talk about this part of the book, that goes with my "Don't ever do" check list.
