Professional boxer Ray “The Wrecker” Wilson is used to winning, both in and out of the ring. When injury forces him to retire, he returns to his hometown of Sunset Cove to buy the former infamous hotspot, The Kraken Bar & Grill. Ray gets more than he bargained for when he runs into the one girl who was always off-limits, his best friend’s sister, Alyssa.
After divorcing her abusive husband whose family runs the town, real-estate agent Alyssa Higgins is finally getting her life back together and staying low-key. Then Ray walks into Sunset Cove Reality with reporters following, throwing her into the limelight.
Now, Alyssa’s fight to avoid watching eyes and resist the legendary heartthrob is a daily battle, one she’s slowly losing.
When Ray hires Alyssa to help him market the Kraken Bar & Grill and navigate the town’s politics, the two grow closer. They struggle to resist the passion between them while overcoming the shared grief from a past tragedy.
An unexpected opportunity arises for Ray to hop back into the ring, changing everything.
