When a family tragedy struck, Ella Moretti left college behind and returned home to her small town of Willow Cove. She had only planned on staying for a few weeks, but seven years later she’s still working in her family’s restaurant and living with her grandfather. Ella is used to putting others before herself, but when a handsome stranger sits next to her on a bus ride home, she wonders what life would be like if she put herself first.
After a long miserable day of travel, to stay with a grandfather he only met a few years ago, Lucas Prescott is instantly taken by the gorgeous brunette sitting next to him. It’s not until the next day that he learns their grandfathers are embattled in a decades old rivalry that threatens to keep them apart.
Neither wanting to betray their family, they start a secret love affair, but when the past resurfaces, and old feuds refuse to stay buried, Ella and Lucas have to decide if their forbidden love is worth the consequences.
