Timing is everything.

Presley Hale and Sebastian Vargas are no strangers to goodbye. Their high school summers were spent wrapped up in each other until she would inevitably go home to California. One season after college, Sebastian finally escaped the little Texas town to travel the world, and they said goodbye for what they thought might be the last time.

Sebastian went one way. Presley went the other.

For the first time in five years, they’re both in town, but the timing is no better than ever. So the only thing to do is what they do best. Keep it casual.

Friends with benefits.

They’ve done it before—doing it again will be easy.

But their hearts don’t get the memo.

When the lines of their arrangement blur, Presley and Sebastian are faced with decisions they’ve avoided for years. And that’s not even their biggest problem.

A small town in danger of failing.

A secret that could tear them apart.

And two hearts that can’t hide anymore.

They’ve shared so many summers, but none compare to what they’ll face.

Timing is everything.

And their time is almost up.

Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life — a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can’t forget that. She’s also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She’s been a wife, though she’s certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She’s also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she’s been drinking whiskey. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.

My Review...

This newest story from Ms. Hart is going to knock your socks off! As a bit of an Elvis fan myself, I loved how she paid homage to the King!

This story between Sebastian and Presley is fun, swoony, steamy and all the good things you come to expect from Staci Hart! Her writing talent shines with this tale of timing, love and unexpected surprises.

A summer fling turns into so much more between Sebastian and Presley and it was both heartbreaking and beautiful to see it unfold. 

Presley is such a remarkable heroine, she is a single mom, she is taking care of her mom and she is an overall bada$$! She is doing what she has to do to take care of her family, forgoing her own dreams to make sure those around her are happy. When Sebastian comes home, she is brave in telling him things that he needs to know.

Sebastian is a family man, he loves his mom and Abuela something fierce. He is back home to check in and make sure things are going well.   Also, it is a lovely surprise to find out Presley is back home. 

This can totally be read as a standalone, but as a huge Staci Hart fan, I loved “seeing” past characters make a brief appearance. I can’t wait to read what comes next from Ms. Hart and I know you are going to love this story just as much as I did!
