Summary and Reviews


In the charming coastal town of Westport, Hannah Bellinger is back for the summer, trading her city life for the familiar comforts of home. Her sister, Piper, is happily married to the town's resident charmer, and Hannah is determined to find her own happily-ever-after. With her sights set on a coworker, she turns to her best friend, Fox Thornton, for help in navigating the world of romance.

Fox Thornton, known as the town's Casanova, is known for his easy charm and endless string of flings. He's never been one for serious relationships, but there's something about Hannah that makes him want to break his own rules. As they spend more time together, the line between friendship and flirtation begins to blur, and Fox finds himself falling for the girl who's immune to his usual tricks.

As the summer progresses, Hannah starts to question her feelings for her coworker and finds herself drawn to Fox's genuineness and kindness. But Fox is afraid to risk their friendship, and Hannah is hesitant to start a relationship with the town's notorious playboy.

Will Hannah and Fox find the courage to take a chance on love? Or will their fears and insecurities keep them apart?
