Hailey Elwood always knew three things: she wanted to be a writer, she didn’t want to run her family diner, and she was madly and unconditionally in love with Caiden Anderson. When Hailey came to the conclusion that her family would never understand her dream to write, she decided to take her future into her own hands, but what she didn’t expect was Caiden’s ultimatum. Falling in love with Caiden was easy. Saying goodbye to him was not. Five years later Hailey’s debut novel becomes an international best seller, skyrocketing her to fame, but when her mother passes away, she is forced to return to her hometown to confront the memories and the man that shaped her first book. She’ll argue it’s fiction, but Caiden knows better. Hailey wasn’t the only who was left battered and bruised, and Caiden makes it a point to make her accountable chapter by chapter. Now with her publisher suddenly pushing her to write a sequel, she isn’t sure how to write it when her future is still unwritten.
