It’s summertime, and Maddie Dill is back in her hometown of Hanley, KY, the last place she ever thought she’d be. Fresh out of college with stars in her eyes, Maddie’s ready for big city lights and a career in journalism, destined to leave her thumbprint on the world.
Mason French is back in town for good and ready to take over the family business. For Mason, Maddie is the one who got away, a bitter reminder of the girl he never kissed. It isn’t long and they run into each other one night at the local bar. When Maddie walks in, Mason’s thrown right back to high school, wondering if his former best friend is ready for more than just friendship.
Sparks fly when they share a searing kiss just before Maddie kicks Mason out of her booth, dumping him on the floor. The feud that’s gone on for generations between their families continues, but Mason’s used to Maddie’s fiery temper and he’s not staying away.
Maddie plans to spend time with her mom and work as an intern for the local newspaper before she takes off for the big city. Mason has designs on Maddie’s heart.
With such different dreams, will they both be fulfilled?
