Kaiden is a member of the Miller family. Their dad, Jeff, runs the family and their farm with an iron fist and an acid tongue. Kaiden dealt with his father's tirades by being a clown. He tried to deflect the things Jeff did by being funny. He was the jokester growing up too. He is a carpenter and helps out on the family farm.
Julia is an attorney in San Francisco. She comes back home to try and help make her dad's house more accessible now that his MS has gotten worse.
Kaiden helps out on the project on Julia's dad's house. Kaiden has always had a crush on Julia. He was friends with her brother Miguel until they had a falling out. Thanks to her brother, Julia thinks that Kaiden has said some bad things about her. She lies Kaiden but is hurt that he'd said things about her.
As the project goes on, Kaiden and Julia get to know the real versions of each other and they develop feelings for each other. But Julia's life is in San Francisco and Kaiden's is in Morgan Valley.
I liked this story. I felt bad for Kaiden. He had a hard life growing up. His dad was a jerk with no redeeming qualities. It felt like the characters tried to make reasons why he was like that. That is just because they are good people.
