<h2>Behind every smiling photo, there's a woman who longs for so much more...
Aspen Carmichael never meant to become famous. When her nemesis took a photo of her, making Aspen's private pain very public in a meme, the photo ended up changing her life in ways she couldn't comprehend.
Now a successful model with an Instagram page full of memes with positive quotes, everyone's watching Aspen's next move. She yearns to be more than a pretty face, but an embarrassing childhood secret holds her back. Returning to Cinnamon Bay for the grand opening of The Factory forces her to confront her dysfunctional family. She's led them all to believe she's unreliable, because that lie is less painful than the truth.
Xander Gannaway promised himself if he ever saw Aspen again, he would apologize for his part in making that meme. A scandal rocked his own world and hindered his chances at a career locally, so now he understands the pain she must have gone through. When she hides in his family owned bookstore, the opportunity lands in his lap. What he doesn't expect is the instant attraction he has toward her.
When Xander discovers Aspen's secret, he vows he'll be the one to help her reach her goals, but where does their strong attraction lead them in the end run?
Fans of Brenda Novak, Nora Roberts, and Robyn Carr will fall head over heels for this delightful beachy romance.
