Owen Montgomery and Avery MacTavish have been best friends forever. The organizer of the Montgomery clan, Owen runs the family’s construction business with an iron will and an inflexible spreadsheet. His brothers might tease Owen about his compulsive list-making, but everyone knows he played a key role in seeing Inn BoonsBoro opened right on schedule.
From her popular pizzeria right across the street from the inn, Avery MacTavish boasted a front row seat to its amazing renovation—and she found a new appreciation for Owen. She considers Owen her first boyfriend, due to a childhood crush, and a bubblegum ring. But she can't claim the attraction she feels for him now as child-like or innocent.
As Avery and Owen cautiously take their relationship to another level, the opening of the inn gives the whole town of Boonsboro a reason to celebrate. But Owen’s hard work has only begun. Getting her to let down her guard may take longer than he expected—as will convincing Avery her first boyfriend is going to be her last.
