After two years of deployment, twenty one year old US army soldier Tanner Hughes returns to his hometown as he receives the news of his parents’ passing. With no ambition or direction in his life, he returns to his empty family home on Jefferson lane with nothing but an empty suitcase and a set of demons that haunt him. One of those demons being his childhood friend, Allie Reynolds. At twenty years old, Allie is back home from college for the summer and she’s dreading it. The town she once called her home is now nothing but a place filled with bad memories, and she can’t help but think that she’s doomed when she learns that the cause of those memories has returned to the house next door, even if she hasn’t seen him since high school.
But Tanner isn’t the same as Allie remembers him, and when she realizes he’s no longer the bully who tormented her all throughout high school, she has a hard time keeping him out of her life, especially when he’s trying so hard to push himself in. After all, Allie Reynolds may be Tanner’s only chance at redemption.
