Clara and Zac thought they were headed for their happily ever after, until a break-up slathered in betrayal left them both jaded and vindictive.
Twelve years have passed since they left Wyoming, and during that time Clara found her calling at a prestigious PR firm in California while Zac moved to New Orleans to join his Broussard cousins at River Enterprises. They thought they could forget each other and move on… until a local charity auction in their hometown of Snowy Creek sets Zac up for the ultimate revenge. If he wins, Clara will be at his mercy, forced to work for him for one full week. Tantalized by the sweet taste of revenge, he eagerly ups the ante to claim his prize.
But what starts out as a week of filthy manual labor and bitter rivalry leads to a shocking revelation. Someone has been plotting for over a decade to keep Clara and Zac apart. Can the pair band together to uncover who? Or will their rift from the past continue to ruin their chance at a blissful future?
Zac broke Clara’s heart twelve years ago and she’s hated him ever since, so much that she has never returned to her hometown because of the memories. They were so happy and had life all planned out, then he just ghosted her. But when they meet at a charity auction, Zac concocts an awesome plan for revenge and Clara can’t imagine why he’s so cruel. She soon learns that he thinks she ghosted him and nothing is as it seems.
This is a sweet story about heartbreak and second chances, in many different forms. I liked the characters immediately and though there were no surprises, I enjoyed Clara and Zac’s story very much. They’re prefect together and once they unravel the mystery that changed their lives, they’re determined to make up for lost time. This is a story that will give you all the feels and make you laugh, a very good read.
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
