KC Santana has one rule: She will never EVER get her heart broken again. 


After a tragedy forces her to escape her home and leave behind everything she’s ever known, KC has to start over as the new girl in town.

Now she is living on a Pacific island off the coast of Hawaii. It’s a tropical paradise, for everyone except her.

The last thing she is looking for is another guy. She’s been burned too many times before. But charming, single dad Marlowe “Lo” Gambon seems determined to change her mind.

Because Lo’s like no one she’s ever met before.

Not cocky. But carefree.

He might be just the man to handle a straight-laced, by-the-book woman like her.

KC strives to keep things platonic. But when an earthquake shakes up their strictly business relationship, everything changes. She realizes she wants to be more than just friends.

Even though they come from two different worlds, she can’t ignore the feelings he stirs up inside her, after she was certain that her heart was closed to love.

She throws caution to the wind and pursues a relationship with the sweet dad raising two 10-year-old twin girls. 

The closer they all grow, the more KC realizes she might finally have a chance at what she left behind: a real family.

Until a political crisis divides the island and threatens the safety of her new home.

KC finds herself and Lo on opposite sides of a decision that could put her life in danger.

She didn’t expect to fall in love with him. She didn’t expect to have her whole life turned upside down.

She refuses to admit Lo is exactly the man she wants, no matter how much she craves him.Yet she can’t deny their chemistry.

But can she trust him with her heart?

KC knows her life is not a fairy tale. But could Lo be her Prince Charming? 

Will she find her happily ever after?
