SOMETIMES THE ROAD LESS TRAVELLED IS THE ONE THAT LEADS FROM HATE TO LOVE... I planned for every situation on my summer solo road trip adventure… except finding a gorgeous stowaway passed out in my camper on my very first night. And turns out I know the surly, knuckle-scarred Greek God: Stone Cormac used to be my childhood best friend… until the tragedy that tore us apart.

After seven years, I’m thrilled to finally be reunited. And Stone is… Well, let’s just say Stone is not. Gone is the happy-go-lucky boy who taught me how to do backflips off Lyman’s wharf, and in his place is a guarded, six-foot-two jerk. Ten minutes in and it’s already obvious he’s still battling demons from that horrible night all those years ago. Demons that make me think a lot more transpired that night than I’m aware of.

The bad news is he’s being forced to spend these two months on the road with me because of a phone call my adoptive father made to his probation officer.
