With his thick southern drawl and seductive charm, Luke is the country boy everyone adores. He has his future mapped out, but his plans with Olivia are suddenly derailed when she makes a decision that blindsides him and changes the path they both envisioned.
As Luke struggles to keep everything in check during a difficult time in his life, he must put his trust in the one person who broke it all to begin with. The last time they saw each other Olivia busted his heart wide open and turned him into the man he is today.
When Olivia returns to her roots just like Luke said she would, he's shocked for more reasons than one. It's been nine years since they've seen each other and when their roads collide unexpectedly, Luke can only push his worry and misgivings away for so long.
Things are different now, they're strangers. And the rope that once bound Olivia's heart to South Fork, Georgia is pulling her back in and forcing her to remember how it use to be all those years ago.

Luke eyed Olivia closely. He could feel how tightly coiled her little body was enveloped his arms. It was written all over her face. She was like an open book to him, so easy to read yet she still tried to veil her emotions.
"Liv," Luke breathed. Olivia gazed up at him with her wide, brown eyes. They were heavy, but full of question.
"Don't think,” he demanded. “Just feel. Let the music roll through your body. Feel it in here," Luke drawled as he placed the backside of his knuckles to the side of her face and began a tantalizing downhill spiral along her damp skin. "And let it flow slowly through your body. Feel the words take over."
His voice, a steady deep hum of intense desire as he ran the back of his hand down her balmy neck and around the curve of her full breast exceedingly slow. Olivia listened to the lyrics as Luke caressed her body with his devious fingers. It was all too much to take. His thumb grazed the fullness of her heavy breasts and then down to her waist, placing his hand back where it had lain before, but taking his time as he did so. Olivia’s body crackled like electrical sparks twitching at the tips with need as she struggled not to tremble from his touch. She shouldn’t be craving the longing of his touch. It wasn’t right, yet she couldn’t control her body.
Not breaking their stare, he lifted the hem of her shirt and began gliding his fingers back and forth just above her shorts. "Let it take you away from your busy life and live in the moment with me,” he tugged her closer to him, tightening his arms and crushing her to him.
