Anna Kelly never intended to return to her hometown of Patience, Tennessee. Feeling powerless after an abusive childhood and left brokenhearted by her high school sweetheart, she’d needed distance between herself and the small town. Eleven years later, she has no choice but to return. Though she feels stronger this time around, nothing can prepare her for seeing her ex again.
After a baseball injury, Jake Lawrence limped back to Patience. He’s just getting his life back together again and can’t risk sending it back to hell. But the woman who broke his heart has whipped back into town.
Hoping to remind Anna of what she ran away from all those years ago, he makes her an offer she can’t refuse.
