Back in her hometown of Ruby Falls, Aria Heart is determined to find herself and the happiness that has always felt just out of reach. Something that would be a lot easier to do if her parents weren't so close by, reminding her just why she left town as soon as she could, and if the house she just purchased wasn't already giving her problems.
Just when Aria starts to second guess her decision, Tide Goodman knocks on her door and shoves his way under her defenses. Is it possible that the happiness she's been searching for is attached to a man like Tide, the guy she crushed on in high school who didn't even seem to know she existed? A man with an adorable daughter and baggage of his own?
In order to find out, she'll have to put everything, including her heart, on the line one more time.

Another hit from ARR!
Another hit from ARR! This was my first read in the Ruby Falls series, and after reading this I definitely need to go back and read the first book! This book focuses on Tide and Aria, who went to high school together but never hung out in the same crowds. Aria’s family isn’t well-liked in the community and even though she isn’t like them, she’s treated as such. Tide is a hometown favorite, and after his breakup with his ex they co-parent his daughter although she’s used as a pawn. When Aria’s marriage fails, she decides to return back home to the place that has always felt like home to her, and upon arrival ends up feeling overwhelmed by the state of the house. Calling for a repair service, none other than Tide arrives, and at first, he doesn’t recognize her, but she recognizes him as she had a huge crush on him back in the day. Once Tide realizes who she is, he realizes that everyone was wrong in town for looping her in with her parents and after fighting some crazy chemistry, they end up getting into a relationship, but start to work to overcome hurdles such as Aria’s mother and Tide’s ex. There were aspects of this storyline that I didn’t see coming, especially in Aria’s family, but I think that’s what really set the book apart from others. I’m excited to get to know more of these characters as ARR writes!
I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
