TJ Bennett knows one thing for certain—being in love isn’t for him. Been there, done that, has the scars to prove it. But that’s before he meets colorful, sweet, slightly-kooky Hope Daniels. Hope is only in town temporarily. She simply wants to have a cup of coffee with the father she’s never known. That’s it. She doesn’t need to buy any Father’s Day cards or have a date for any Father-Daughter dances. She just wants to have a conversation with the man who stole her mother’s heart twenty six summers ago in Sapphire Falls. But when her directions lead her to TJ’s house instead, everything becomes a lot more complicated… and a lot more interesting. Because there’s nothing like a big gruff introvert to push this extrovert’s let-me-make-it-all-better buttons. All of TJ’s plans to stay uninvolved and out of her way evaporate quickly and before he knows it, Hope’s got him thinking differently about everything—family, home, heartbreak and maybe, just maybe, the fact that he’s never actually been in love… before now.
