One of Nashville’s fastest rising stars, Kyle Keenan has it all—fame, fans, and a chance at fortune. But the dream he’s busted his tail for means nothing without the woman who holds his heart. With her sassy smile and pull-no-punches attitude, Abbey is his greatest love—and his greatest regret. When he’s confronted in a live TV interview about alleged involvement with a country music starlet, Kyle blurts out he’s already engaged…to Abbey.
Abbey Whittaker has come a long way from the starry-eyed six-year-old who made a marriage pact with her best friend. With a thriving business, a loving family, and a tight-knit group of friends, she’s put away childish things. She long ago banished Kyle from her life, so the last thing she expects is him walking through her door or the blistering kiss that follows.
Kyle is desperate to convince Abbey that a fake engagement is the best way to get the media off her back—and his. And it just might give him a chance to fix what he destroyed. Even as these two frenemies remember all the reasons they wanted to be lovers, another blast from Kyle’s past returns, threatening to expose the secret he’s spent his entire career hiding.
When truths come to light, will love conquer all or will Kyle lose everything?
Kyle is a country music star who hasn’t spoken to Abbey, his best friend and first love, for over a decade but when he finds himself being pressured about his romantic life it is her name that comes to mind as his fake fiancé. He now needs to do damage control and that means returning to his hometown and explaining to Abbey what he has done.
Abbey was devastated when Kyle left town all those years ago and although she has moved forward with her life, she has never truly gotten over him. Having him come back into her life was surprising enough but nothing compared to the circumstances that brought him there. Will this be their second chance or are they destined for heartbreak once again?
This is a heartwarming story about the power of love and the strength of family as Kyle and Abbey fight their way back to each.
