At the age of nineteen, Seth Sileski had everything. A superb athlete and scholar, handsome and popular, he was the pride of Thunder Point. Destined for greatness, he lost it all in a terrible accident that put an end to his professional football career when it had barely begun. The people in his hometown have never forgotten what might have been.
Seth has come to terms with the turns his life has taken. But now he's been presented with an opportunity to return home and show his father—and the people of Thunder Point—he's become a better, humbler version of his former self.
Winning over his father isn't the only challenge. Seth must also find a way to convince his childhood neighbor and best friend, Iris McKinley, to forgive him for breaking her heart. With his homecoming, will Seth be able to convince the town, his family and especially Iris that he's finally ready to be the man who will make them all proud?
Seth has returned home after years away. Hoping to reconnect with friends and finally get back in his father's good graces after the tragic accident that ended his football career, Seth hires on as a policeman with the Thunder Point police force. But what he really wants is to see Iris again. Iris was his best friend since childhood, but sometime in high school, something happened and Iris no longer wanted to be friends with him. Seth believes that it Iris hated him because he told her he would take her to prom when he and his girlfriend broke up, but they immediately made up and he took the girlfriend instead of Iris. What Seth doesn't know is that there was more to the story, he just didn't remember it.
Iris has lived her life happily in Thunder Point. She became a high school counselor and sold her mother's flower shop after her mother passed away (becoming great friends with the new owner). And Iris wants absolutely nothing to do with Seth. But Seth is determined to find out why Iris hates him and to get back in her favor. Iris was, after all, the best friend he ever had.
The first couple books in this series I thought were lacking, but I believe they are getting much better with each new one. I liked Iris, and I liked how much she cared for her students. I laughed when she punched Seth. That was hilarious! He got what he deserved! Iris was pretty ticked that Seth didn't remember what happened between them, but in a fit of anger she told him, Seth felt absolutely awful. It was around then that Iris began to forgive him. Seth is a rather persistent fellow, so he woos her, even if she doesn't realize it.
It was a great book!
