Casey Atwood doesn’t need college, the family ranch, or the town he’s from. His plan is to ride bulls and leave Dillon Creek forever, push all the family drama out of his head with each eight-second ride. But when a family friend is laid to rest, Casey must return home to Dillon Creek and face the war his family internalizes—and the only woman who keeps his heart tied to the town.
Tess Morgan is scheduled, regimented. A first-grade teacher, proficient in organization and list management, she finds solace with her students since the tragedy in 2012. But when Casey Atwood returns to town, Tess realizes she’s just as broken as she was when he left. But she’ll never let him see that.
When they run into each other at the funeral, that the madness and chaos of that night returns, and they stop in their tracks, stuck once again to face the music they once started.
In a town where loyalty runs as thick as the redwood trees, will Casey and Tess bend together, or will they break before the healing begins?
