Lifestyles of the small-town famous
Forced to leave Nashville after a scandal, Savannah Walters has come home to Slippery Rock, Missouri, with a bruised ego and her singing career in jeopardy. As if that isn’t humiliating enough, on her way into town she’s rescued by her swoon-worthy childhood crush, Collin Tyler.
His hands are full running the family orchard and dealing with his delinquent teen sister, so Collin doesn’t need to get involved with someone as fiery and unpredictable as Savannah. But the intense attraction between them can’t be denied. And when disaster strikes, they’ll both be surprised by who’s still standing when the dust settles.
“And I’m not the kind of influence you want around her. Well, from what I recall, teenage girls don’t do so well with orders. You didn’t answer my question. What did she do? Skip curfew?” Savannah knew she should drop the subject, but she couldn’t. Despite Amanda’s obvious annoyance at Collin, there was something very connected about the two of them. Family dynamics fascinated her.
Collin rubbed a hand over the back of his neck. “What hasn’t she done? Cut class, skipped curfew. She was with the kids who set that fire downtown just after you got back into town. Last weekend she duct-taped the one-ways downtown to run the way she thought made more sense. She needs a keeper.”
Savannah chuckled. “Sounds like some of the stuff you guys did back in high school.” Pranks and raids she’d never been invited into, not that she was bitter. Even if Levi had asked, she would never have gone.
“Because you were boys and she’s a girl?”
Collin’s mouth twisted to the side and a little stab of attraction hit her belly. Lord, but a man twisting up his mouth shouldn’t be so hot. Especially when said man was once again dusty from head to boots. At least he’d dropped the piece of straw.
“We never taped off downtown. We didn’t set any fires—”
“I didn’t see her name in the police blotter.”
“Technically, she was trying to put it out, but that doesn’t—”
“I remember something about the five of you absconding with the sheriff department’s boat,” she interrupted him.
“We were pretty sure there was a drug deal going on at the sandbar at the time. And no one would listen to us.”
“So five high school football players were going to do a citizen’s arrest, at night, on potential drug runners in the middle of the lake?” She tilted her head to the side. “You guys wanted to take your girls out on the lake that night, admit it.” He beetled his brows again. “In the grand scheme of things, your prank was a lot more dangerous than taping off a couple of streets.”
“It’s still not the same.”
