It’s been a decade since Aubrey Laurent left Maplesville shrouded in scandal. Intent on taking the music industry by storm, she moved to Los Angeles to chase her dreams of becoming a pop star. But life has thrown nothing but sour notes her way. Now Aubrey has no choice but to return to her hometown and face the people who scorned her. And the ex-boyfriend whose heart she broke.
After spending the last two years taking care of his dying father, Sam Stewart is ready to start living for himself. But just when he prepares to take the first step forward—and possibly away from Maplesville—his past comes tumbling back to upend his plans.
The last thing Sam wants is to reconnect with the woman who crushed his heart, but as he and Aubrey work together on a community project, they discover that the heat that once burned between them is still there. And it’s hotter than ever.
