Austin Harris heard these words to describe himself all the time in New York and the media. Hell, he happily owned them and ran the town, enjoying life to the hilt.
He didn’t need North Reed, where he was from; not anymore. He’d avoided it for years until his parents begged him for just one visit home for a small-town holiday.
Fine, he’d go but he’d bring his assistant so that he could work at the same time. Money didn’t get made if a man wasn’t working and that was the name of the game for Austin now. It was a compromise that everyone would have to be happy with.
Coming back was harder than he could ever expect. It brought back feelings for the small town and for his first love, that he’d left behind after graduation. When things got serious, he knew that he’d have to make a choice about how to live his life from that moment on.
