Make a list, she said. It'll be easy, she said.
Deputy Jesse Maddox's reputation in Beach Pointe is...less than stellar. He thought following in the footsteps of his late father, a former cop, would make up for it. Not quite. Every time he closes his eyes, his past is there to haunt him.
After falling asleep on the job (again), the sheriff gives him an ultimatum. Get counseling for whatever's keeping him awake at night or get out. Jesse would rather have a root canal, but he goes anyway, expecting a big waste of time. What he doesn't expect is to fall in love.
Leigh Meriwether is so close to earning her counselor's license, she can taste it. But when Deputy Maddox walks in, she second guesses her career choice. The horror stories she's heard from her clients about him are enough to make anyone cringe. Despite her reservations, she gives him a game plan: make a list of people he's hurt, apologize, and make amends. Simple enough.
What's not so simple? Uncovering the real man hidden within. What's worse? Falling for her own client.
