Cali’s daughter, Becca, wants to hang out with the only kid staying nearby. The problem is he lives with Blaze, the man who likes nothing more than getting under Cali’s skin.
Can two kids and a dog find a way to help Blaze and Cali look beyond haunting memories of the past, as well as their first impressions of one another? Or will this summer turn into the worst one ever?

With my disguise in place and feeling like I might explode, I throw the car door open—only for it to stop halfway. It must’ve hit something. I squeeze through the opening while trying to push it further as I see some blonde with large sunglasses gawking at me.
“What’s your problem?” Raising my brows, I stare back at her wondering if my disguise didn’t work. Hopefully she’ll take the hint to leave me alone because I’m not in the mood to sign autographs.
“Excuse me?” Fluttering her eyes, she shuts her mouth and raises her brows. “You’re asking me what my problem is when you’re the one who hit me with your car door? What’s your problem? You barely missed my face!” She props her hands on her hips, shaking her head.
“Why are you walking so close to my car then? You people need to give me a break.”
“You people? What the heck does that mean?”
“Duh, people like you who want something from me. Just give it a rest, okay?”
“Are you on drugs or something?” She pulls her glasses off, looking me in the eyes.
This woman is getting on my last nerve. “Don’t try to play dumb with me lady. I’m not falling for it.”
She squints at me. “Have you lost your mind, or are you rude by nature?”
“You can quit trying to be coy, I’m not interested!”
“Trust me buddy, I wouldn’t be interested in you if you were the last man on earth.” Eyeing the woman, Shane walks around to my door, in an attempt to diffuse the situation before I slam it shut.
“Unbelievable!” she yells before storming off.
