About the book

Daphne always loved the way Peter told their story.

That is until it became the prologue to his actual love story with his childhood bestie, Petra.

But it’s all just for show, of course, because there’s no way Daphne would actually start her new chapter by falling in love with her exfiancé’s new fiancée’s ex … right?
