Old flames burn bright. When a disgraced starlet returns home to lick her wounds, she discovers that her high school sweetheart is just as tempting as ever.
“No one writes big-hearted bad boys like Jessica Lemmon!”(New York Times best-selling author Lori Foster)
Allison: When I left for California, I gave myself a new name and never looked back. Now my carefully crafted good-girl image is getting torn to shreds in the press thanks to my Oscar-winning A-hole of an ex-boyfriend. So I escape to the only safe haven I know and trust - my hometown - to take a breather while I plot my triumphant Hollywood comeback. However, when I arrive at my parents’ house, Jackson Burke answers the door instead. And suddenly the past comes rushing back....
Jackson: First kiss. First time. First love. Yep, Allison Murphy and I shared a lot of firsts back in the day. When she left, she took half my heart with her. Now she’s back in town, and even though I swore I’d keep my distance, her parents hired me to remodel their house, and I’m going to finish the job. But one hot kiss later, suddenly the press is calling us the next big celebrity couple. Sure, I’ll play the part, for Allison’s sake - but I refuse to let her close enough to break my heart all over again.....

Cute story and Passionate
It's a sweet story that has some pretty good passionate scenes. I listened to the audio and both narrators did great. I especially liked the tone of the male narrators voice. I just couldn't connect with Allison/Nina. I don't like how she just plays the Hollywood game. The book starts out with only POV chapters from Jackson, then after awhile Allison gets some POV chapters; I think it would've been good to start some chapters with her POV earlier on in the book, so the reader could build more of a bond with her. Also, I was expecting more of a connection between Allison and Jackson. They don't fight for each other. They gave up each other too easily when they were young sweethearts. They loved each other, but not enough to make it work. They do have some great passion though, and overall, the story kept me interested. The ending wasn't to my liking, but it did have some cute moments.
