How do you escape the past when it lurks at every small town corner? That’s what Jovie is trying to figure out as she does her absolute best to move on and sweep those dirty parts of her past under the rug. But you see, it’s not quite so simple when everyone knows: knows your past, knows you’re untouchable, and knows…him.
She could move out of town and make things easier on herself, but why should she be the one to suffer and lose her family and best friend? No, she won’t back down that easily. Jovie decides to stick around because this is her life, her home. Besides, there’s a university in the next town over which always brings in fresh faces, but she’s getting tired of the college scene, or the guys, rather. At least she thought she was over them. Could this tall, mysterious guy that suddenly surfaced be the answer to a new start? Or will he just be another fresh face that fades away once he learns her truth?
A new town. A new life. That’s what Bleu was in search of when he came across an advertisement for the perfect bachelor pad, or at least for the type of single guy who wants his solitude and a clean start. He never thought he would retire from the military before he had a gray hair much less move to a town that had a single stoplight. Funny how life changes in the blink of an eye.
