As a photographer, Summer Weston knows image is everything. After enduring years of fat-shaming, she can’t help but see herself through the same judgmental lens. So when her old childhood pal returns to sweep her off her feet with a romantic adventure, she’s convinced they’d be better off as friends… even though her heart has other ideas.
Caleb Spencer doesn’t care what the scale says, he adores every inch of Summer. When the aspiring musician finally works up the courage to share the love song playing in his heart, it doesn’t go according to plan. With old scars and new careers pulling them in different directions, it’ll take a radical move to bring them together… if only he can convince her to meet him halfway.
When old wounds run deep, will Caleb’s love be strong enough to piece together Summer’s broken heart?

What I really wanted to tell him was that he was so sexy, I wanted to rip his clothes off right there in the bar and run my hands and my mouth all over his body. But I couldn’t tell a perfect stranger something like that. So, I kept quiet and let my voice trail off.
