Bethany Pruitt has been judged for her mother’s actions ever since she could remember. When she returns from college in Miami to Frankin Parks, her hometown, for the summer, she doesn’t expect to find the only home she’s known to be motherless and empty. By another turn of events, she decides to accept an invitation from her uncle to stay at Paloma’s Edge, Florida.
Chase Lovell lives for the present and doesn’t think about much else. When he goes to see his coach for a meeting, a female standing at the end of a long bus line at his college sparks his interest and earns his respect. Intent on approaching her, he misses his chance, and assumes that he’ll never see her again. When Pierce, his best friend, asks him to pick up his cousin, Bethany, from Franklin Parks and drive her to Paloma’s Edge, he can’t deny that she is the person he’s been drawn to.
But will Chase do whatever it takes to keep the girl he’s found again?
