Timing is everything.

Presley Hale and Sebastian Vargas are no strangers to goodbye. Their high school summers were spent wrapped up in each other until she would inevitably go home to California. One season after college, Sebastian finally escaped the little Texas town to travel the world, and they said goodbye for what they thought might be the last time.

Sebastian went one way. Presley went the other.

For the first time in five years, they’re both in town, but the timing is no better than ever. So the only thing to do is what they do best. Keep it casual.

Friends with benefits.

They’ve done it before—doing it again will be easy.

But their hearts don’t get the memo.

When the lines of their arrangement blur, Presley and Sebastian are faced with decisions they’ve avoided for years. And that’s not even their biggest problem.

A small town in danger of failing.

A secret that could tear them apart.

And two hearts that can’t hide anymore.

They’ve shared so many summers, but none compare to what they’ll face.

Timing is everything.

And their time is almost up.


When Presley is finding it increasingly difficult to support her family, they return to the small town that holds so many happy memories of the summers she spent as a teenager. The move gives her the support of her extended family and she has even managed to find a job working as a waitress at the town’s diner. She wasn’t expecting to see Sebastian, the boy who stole her heart, but now that they have reunited, she has a surprise for him that he won’t see coming.

Sebastian has spent his life working overseas helping others and he is back temporarily to be there for his family. When he sees Presley again it becomes apparent that the chemistry and connection between them hasn’t diminished over time but will the surprise that Presley has for him bring them closer or tear them apart?

This is a heartwarming story about love, family and second chances. The characters of Presley and Sebastian draw you in as they have always tried to do what is best for those they care about and there is a unique cast of supporting characters which only enhances the story.

Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life — a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can’t forget that. She’s also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She’s been a wife, though she’s certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She’s also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she’s been drinking whiskey. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.
