To the world, he's Dustin Wild, country star with a megawatt smile and a voice smooth as whiskey. To me, he'll always be Dustin Wilder, the small-town boy who stole my heart...then broke it.
It's been seven years since Dustin rolled out of our rural Georgia town, chasing his dream, promising he'd be back. Except that never happened. Instead, he topped the charts, trading in our future plans for a life that didn't involve me at all.
I thought I'd moved on. Until the town busybodies invite Dustin back to Hickory Hills to perform at the annual Rhythm and Brews Festival.
All I can do is swoon when he says my name or flashes me that smile. And by the way he's looking at me, my heart can't help but hope he feels the same.
I've got my eyes wide open this time, and I won't let him hurt me again.
That is, until ghosts from our past have something to say about our second chance.
