Having left his hometown of Hope years ago, only one thing could persuade architect Reid McCormack to come home for a lengthy stay—the challenge of renovating a historic building. But once the job is finished, he’ll be headed back to Boston, no matter how much he’s drawn to beautiful florist Samantha Reasor.
Samantha watches over her elderly grandmother and pours a piece of herself into every floral creation she designs. Her crush on Reid has been blooming for a while now, but she’s reluctant to act on it. A temporary fling isn’t what she’s looking for, even if Reid is smoking hot and super sexy. She wants a real, permanent, forever kind of love.
Two people with different goals couldn’t possibly work, and yet as their attraction grows into something deeper, maybe falling in love is the one thing Samantha and Reid can build a future on.

She wound her way up to the third floor, where it looked similar to the second floor. Walls had been framed in and drywall was going up. Wood floors had been put in, and there was defined space up here. She wanted to linger, to walk into every room, but first she had to find Reid, because she had questions. She heard banging and talking, so she followed the sound.
She found him talking to one of the workers in one of the bathrooms.
“The wrong color sinks were delivered for up here,” the guy said, causing Reid to rub the side of his temple. “And the window people sent the wrong sizes for the second floor, so those don’t fit.”
