Breaking up with your high school sweetheart is one thing. Breaking up with Hollywood’s favorite actor? That’s an entirely different situation. I’d been in love with Aiden Walters since I was a little girl. We’d grown up as neighbors in small town Wisconsin. I knew him inside and out, and he knew every single piece of me. I was there when his career took off, and I was almost certain I’d always be a part of his life. It wasn’t until a scandal broke out that I was forced to end things with Aiden. He didn’t take it very well. The boy I once loved began to hate me. He went off to California, leaving his entire past behind—including me. Five years later, he’s back in town for a few months to care of some family business. He’s staying in the only hotel in our small town—the hotel I now oversee. For the next few months, I’ll be forced to cater to the man whose heart I broke all those years ago—a man who resents me, a man who swore he would never speak to me again. Now that he’s back in town, in constant proximity to me, I have to keep reminding myself daily why I ended things with him in the first place. Otherwise, I’ll find myself falling in love with him all over again. Only this time, I’m certain that, if I do fall, he won’t be willing to catch me.
