Kit Ryan, a Marine and local lothario on vacation in sunny California, finds himself dangerously drawn to his best friend’s sister, Jessa – the one lady he can’t have. Kit, on the other hand, isn’t going to let a few roadblocks get in his way, and Jessa soon falls for his alluring charms. What begins as a summer romance of secret hook-ups and magical first dates gradually transforms into a passionate love affair that flips both of their lives upside down. Kit and Jessa aren’t ready to say goodbye when summer ends and it’s time for Kit to redeploy.
