Emmy’s a book editor used to getting what she wants. Rhett’s a fire lieutenant who has nothing to lose. When their lives get intertwined in more ways than one, neither can avoid the truth of what they are when they’re together.
Emmy Morgan is a go-getter, stubborn and brutally honest. She knows what she wants and goes for it. When her longtime boyfriend and her call off their engagement, all she wants is a fresh start and California is the perfect place to get it.
Rhett Adams is the exact opposite. He’s guarded, keeping his cards close to his heart and the kind of guy to go with the flow rather than rock the boat, except when it comes to Emmy. She throws his life off the perfectly calculated path it’s been on for the last twenty-nine years.
When the two become neighbours after more than one chance encounter, they are forced to face that their lives are intertwined in more ways than one.
