Everette has made a name for himself as a school leader who can come into the toughest situation and still turn things around, combining creative problem solving with skills he learned as a Navy SEAL. So when a school in Irvine has a sudden drug problem, they bring him in.
As luck would have it, he moves in across the street from Vivienne; the attraction is mutual and instant. But life throws many curveballs at them in the form of the drug issues at his school, his daughter’s illness, and Vivienne’s stalker ex. They turn to each other for comfort, and her to him for protection, but things are messy. Will they work past their problems and come together?
