Piper Smithson and Liam Nelson were best friends. That was when they were seven and eight years old. Since moving away from small town Lewisburg , Tennessee , Piper has gone on to bigger and better things in her young, teenage life. She's evolved from a stubborn, mean little girl into a kind and sympathetic teenager. Moving away from that hick town was the best thing that happened to her! Until Daddy loses his job and they have to move into their summer home--which, coincidentally is their old house in Lewisburg, that Piper had no idea about. Immediately, her old, stubborn 'tude is returning with news of the move and only worsens when she literally bumps into Liam, though she doesn't recognize him.
He's arrogant, he's country, he has an annoying accent and says "y'all" and "ain't" all the time. He, on the other hand, falls right back into being friends with her, easily charming her. Underneath his arrogant, cowboy exterior there's something special. Piper just has to open her eyes and see beneath the surface to figure that out. She never claimed to be a fast learner, though.
But there's a reason in everything. There's a reason Piper's father lost his job, and there was a reason he kept the old house. There was a reason Piper found Liam again.
