When Hollywood heartthrob Tucker returns to their hometown, can Gretchen resist her first love?
I did the right thing. I waited. I wanted it to be special.
He was my first love. Our first time was going to be everything I had dreamed it would be.
And it was…until we were interrupted.
When our magical night turned into an awkward nightmare, little did I know it would be the last time I saw him. He bailed. Walked away. Leaving me alone with the shattered pieces of my broken heart.
But that was then. This is now.
He's back. A megasuperstar. A Hollywood heartthrob with a desperate fan base of sexy women that won’t leave him alone.
But he wants me. Still. After all these years.
I can't possibly cave to my feelings, desires, and my hopeful heart.
He broke it once. He'll do it again.
We waited. It felt like forever, but I didn't care. I would've done anything for her.
But I screwed up. When it all went south, I fled, leaving her alone and broken hearted.
And she wasn’t the only one.
But that was then. This is now.
There was so much more to the story than I ever thought was possible.
I may be an actor, but none of this is for show. I want her, and only her.
I'll do whatever it takes.
I want her in my arms, and in my heart. Forever.
This time, I'm not giving up.
