'Synchony (Destiny #2)' by Cindy Ray Hale

Release Date: 2014

Summary from Goodreads:

When her parents discover she’s been sneaking out with Isaac Robinson the forbidden Baptist boy, Mormon girl Destiny Clark decides it’s time to keep their relationship quiet. As their relationship moves to shakier ground, Destiny discovers that Isaac has a terrible secret, and she is left completely shattered.

The moment Destiny feels all hope is lost, Preston Nelson, her longtime church friend and Isaac's bitter rival, arrives like a beacon of light. It isn't long before two separate disasters strike for Preston and Destiny's best friend, Hannah. As Destiny helps them through their issues, she discovers that sometimes the best way to forget about your own problems is to help a friend in need.

Just as her heart begins to mend and her friendship with Preston begins to heat up, Isaac walks back into her life, threatening to rekindle the feelings she’d hoped to bury forever. Will Destiny and Preston find the synchrony they so desperately need, or will she find a way to forgive Isaac and return to his outstretched arms?

Read an excerpt:
I looked up. 
“I want things back the way they were with us.” 
I clenched my fists at my sides. “That can’t happen.” 
“Why not? I’m doing everything I can here. Don’t you see that?” 
“Isaac.” I sighed. “I’m already dating someone else.” There. I’d finally said it. 
“What? You’re pulling the ‘I’m dating Preston’ card again? Hannah told me you were faking that. Do you know what I think? I think you’re scared to commit. You’re afraid of getting hurt again. We belong together. Can’t you feel that? Look me in the eyes and tell me that you don’t still feel something for me.” 
I studied the bushes. 
Isaac took my chin and turned it toward him. “Look me in the eyes.” 
I bit my lower lip to keep it from trembling. It was impossible to look in his beautiful eyes. I couldn’t say it because my heart was overflowing with my feelings for him. 
“You can’t say it, can you?” He placed his hands on either side of my face, and I finally looked him in the eyes. I had to do what was best for him. He deserved better. I only had one heart to give, and I’d just pledged the entire thing to Preston.

Favorite quotes:
She wanted to forget him? Oh she was going to. She was going to forget the guy even had a name. “Okay. I’ll help you,” I murmured. “Just remember, you’re the one who asked for this.” –Preston

I finally allowed myself to touch her. I wrapped my arms around her waist and pulled her in closer. And then my lips were on hers. I kissed her the way I really wanted to. All the desire I’d been holding back for the past hour—for the past several years, really—flowed into the kiss. –Preston

“Isaac says he wants to be friends now.”
Hudson let loose a bark of laughter. “Sure he does.”
“Why’s that funny?” I asked.
“Destiny, come on. Everyone knows there’s no such thing as a single guy who wants to be ‘just friends’ with a girl.”
“That’s not true,” I insisted.
“Oh, he may say it, but he doesn’t mean it.”
