This summer I'm leaving my hometown for a fresh start. It's a necessary choice in my pursuit of a full and sober life. Besides, escaping to the Outer Banks isn't a hardship. This seaside town holds everything I need and more. 

That is, until I run into Chase Matthews. 

He's an arrogant, cocky, self-absorbed jerk who has already come between me and my best friend once. The smart thing to do is keep him at a distance, even if he seems lost and alone. 

Instead, I'm compelled to help him.

Chase is broken and beautiful in ways I fully understand. It's been months since I've indulged in a drink, but I've found a new obsession. 

He's everything I want and the last thing I need. 

Each day draws us closer, but I can't allow myself to get caught up in Chase. We were only meant to have the summer. A temporary fling. Yet my heart has other plans. I don't know how I'll ever walk away. Even if he costs me everything.


"An emotional, gripping love story between two flawed and complex characters." - Review Quote

“So, you still want to be here all summer?” she says, stopping at the receptionist desk to grab something from behind the counter. Does she really think I’d so easily quit? That I’m scared of a little hard work?

“Tell me what to do.” 

“You’re up for anything?” She shoves a shirt and badge at my chest.

Anything. “Hell, yeah.” I don’t think her idea is the same as mine. Disappointing. I pull the center’s volunteer shirt on over my plain white tee and meet her gaze. “Hit me with your best.” I tip my chin in a silent challenge I can’t help. At her wide grin, it’s probably one I’ll regret. 

“Oh, Chase. I’m going to have so much fun with you.” By her delight it sounds as if it’ll be anything but enjoyable.

“Hey, Charlie!” she calls over my shoulder. “I need you to make our new volunteer regret the day he was born.”

Charlie glances from me to Alicia and laughs uncomfortably. “Uh, okay.”

“He wants all the manual labor,” she clarifies and shoots me a grin. “That right?”

Like I’ll back down. “Whatever you need. Whatever you want.” Preferably naked, with my hands on her body.

“Cool,” Charlie says. “There’s a drainage issue with one of the women’s shower stalls. Once I get that fixed, I’ll get him started on sanding down the fencing around the center. It needs a refinish.”

“Chase is happy to glove up and help you with the shower drains,” she says sweetly. “Aren’t you?”

My jaw ticks. “Sure.” 

“Good.” She grins, as if she’s won this round. “I’ll leave you to it!” She turns on her heel and marches off before I can get in another word.

“Dude." Charlie chuckles. "What did you do to piss her off?”
