Olympia Heartwood is running the family empire, and she works long days and lives at The Heartwood Inn, making her entire life about her job. Which is just fine with her, because the last man she was involved with was married. When the truth came out, her heart shattered, and she's never been the same. And men? She can't trust them. Doesn't need them.
Chet Christopher took the heat for something that wasn't his fault, lost his prestigious job at the country's largest luxury hotel chain, and has been living in his car for a few weeks. When he shows up off the coast of South Carolina, looking for somewhere to stay, everything is booked. But he's got plenty of old Southern money, so he rents the second penthouse at The Heartwood Inn—on the same floor as Olympia.
He's instantly attracted to her—and her luxury inn, resort, and spa. But it becomes immediately apparent that he can't tell Olympia who he is or what he used to do for a living. She's so distrusting, and he doesn't want to go back to sleeping in the back seat.
He can't help but offer advice for her inn, and as they work around bumps and misunderstandings, they start to accidentally fall in love... Will Olympia open her heart to the possibility of love? Or will Chet's secrets ruin everything?
