Welcome to Burton, Georgia, a small town just west of Savannah. In this farm community, the women are sassy, the men are sexy and happily-ever-afters are a specialty of the house.
Meghan Hawthorne is restless. The last year has been a roller coaster of emotions: her widowed mother just remarried. Her younger brother unexpectedly became a father and a husband. Everyone's life is changing. . .except for hers. As she begins her final summer of college, Meghan's looking for excitement and maybe a little romance. Nothing serious; this girl just wants to have fun.
But the only man for Meghan turns out to be the last one she expects.
Sam Reynolds doesn't need excitement, and he doesn't want romance. Fun is out of the question. He's been the steady, responsible one since his parents were killed, and serious is his way of life.
When Sam rescues Meghan alongside a dark Georgia backroad, she falls hard for his deep brown eyes and slow drawl. But making him see her as more than just a party girl won't be easy, and opening his eyes to a future beyond their summer fling is downright impossible. Sam's tempted by the fiery young artist, even as he realizes that giving into his feelings will mean radical change . . . maybe more than he can handle.
Whoever said love was simple?
