You can't date your ex. You can't lie about being in a relationship. And you can't combine the two. Ever.
I wasn't prepared for how great it would be to see Lourdes after all these years. Or how explosive.
A misunderstanding years ago caused her to hate my guts. Clearly, she hasn't stopped. I, on the other hand, haven't stopped loving her. I have to prove to her that I'm not the guy she thinks I am, even if it means lying about my true feelings when given the opportunity to express my love.
My life could not get any worse. Having to put my sweet grandma in an assisted living facility? Check. Cheating ex-boyfriend and the girl he cheated with both showing up around town together? Check. Disasters at my flower shop? Triple check.
Now my grandma believes the ex and I are still together. I would do anything to make Gam-Gam happy, but faking a relationship with Spence—the man I never got over—just might be my undoing. I still miss him. I still love him. And I'll never forgive him.
