Jessie: Most people think of me as the town screw-up. They’re not wrong. I’ve made more mistakes than I care to admit. My biggest mistake of all? Letting go of the most important person in my life. Tracy was my first best friend, my first love— my first everything. After a falling out, I left her and our small town behind, never looking back. But when the big city chewed me up and spit me out, I ran home with my tail tucked between my legs. Now that I’m back, I realize just how stupid I was for letting her go.
Tracy: Seven years. It’s been seven years since I’ve spoken to Jessie. Seven years since I’ve let myself think about him. To do so would be a fall into a downward spiral that I can’t allow myself to plummet into. Again. I finally have my life on track, running my own business, and taking care of the most important thing— me. That is until he blows back into town like a forbidden gust of wind that takes my breath away and reignites the sparks I’ve tried to smolder for so long. Distance was what I thought I needed to heal from the heartbreak he caused, but now that he’s back, I can’t think straight. Do I listen to my heart and give him another chance, or do I listen to my gut and run like hell to avoid another heartache?
