Rachel Bradford is finally living her dream as the star of her own interior design show. But ratings are slipping, and if she wants to save the show, she has to set an episode in the hometown she fled. Worst of all, she’s going to have to work with the cocky bad boy who humiliated her.
Single dad, Beckett Colburn plans to turn an old fire station into a neighborhood bar. He’s blindsided when he discovers his family made a deal to turn his dream into a reality TV project. He’d rather run into a burning builing than work with his childhood nemesis–on camera.
But it’s not easy with a TV crew in town stirring up trouble, spreading rumors, creating buzz. Not to mention the inconvenient sudden attraction that sparks every time Rachel and Beckett fight.
Ever since graduating from high school Rachel has tried to show her parents that she made the right career choice in following her dreams of interior design rather than following her dreams for her where she would study law. She hosts a renovation show however with the decrease in viewership she has the choice of returning to her hometown to renovate the bar of her rival or face the possibility of the network not renewing her show.
In an effort to avoid becoming part of his family’s salvage business Beck left town right after high school however he returned home a decade earlier when he found himself a single father to his daughter Holly. He wants to forge his own path within the family business and for that to happen he needs to ensure the bar is a success so leaving the reno in the hands of his rival is the last thing he wanted.
As they work together, they both acknowledge that they made mistakes in high school and they are no longer the same people. There is no denying the chemistry and connection between them but with their very different plans for the future is there any way for this to end other than in heartbreak?
Although Rachel and Beck seem very different they have more in common than they realize. With love and compromise they may just realize that the only thing they really need in the future is each other.
