(She don't love you, she's just lonely: Eric Paslay)
Tennessee Elizabeth Dixon, 20, or simply Essee, has spent most of her life hiding behind her vicious attitude in order to prevent anyone from getting too close, except for her twin, Texas.
That's until Yates Draven shows up in her life and tangles her in his web -- despite the fact that her sister is half in love with him she marries Yates and they ride off into the sun to live happily ever after.
Fast forward five years and the woman Tennessee used to be is gone, broken by fits of rage and flying fists. Too afraid to tell anyone, she hides it; until a revelation from her long deceased mother about the parentage of her and her sisters comes to light.
And all the while her life is crumbling at her feet, Stetson's is coming together.
Stetson Daniels has been in love with his best friend Texas' pointy tongued twin for years -- though no body knows. When a daughter he didn't know he had is dropped into his lap, his life is turned upside down and he strives to change it for Annalynn.
When the truth of Tennesse's marriage come out, he's enraged but stays away -- he wants to give her time to heal before he swoops in; he's got every intention of having her in his life. But will Essee allow that or is she going to fight tooth and nail?
