Jenna and Ryder are far from friends—until a storm stirs up their passion in this contemporary southern romance from New York Times bestselling author Kristi Cook.
In Magnolia Branch, Mississippi, The Cafferty and Marsden families are practically royalty. Neighbors since the Civil War, the families have shared vacations, holidays, backyard barbecues, and the overwhelming desire to unite their two clans by marriage. So when the families finally have a baby boy and girl at the same time, the perfect opportunity seems to have arrived.
Except Jemma Cafferty and Ryder Marsden have no intention of giving in to their parents’ wishes. They’re only seventeen—oh, and also? They hate each other. Jemma can’t stand Ryder’s nauseating golden-boy persona, and Ryder would prefer it if stubborn-headed Jemma didn’t exist. And their communication is not exactly effective: even a casual hello turns into a yelling match.
But when a violent Mississippi storm ravages through Magnolia Branch, it unearths feelings Jemma and Ryder didn’t know they had. And the line between love and hate just might be thin enough to cross…

This book is over the top awesome!! It is one of my favorites. It had action and of course romance and funny. You should defiantly get this book! So worth it.
I never read books twice, and I read this book 3 times. The story was refreshing, funny, and sad. I like a book that can make me feel, laugh out loud, and relate to the characters. I wish the story didn’t end 😭
I really liked this book!! Maybe because I live in the south just like Jemma.. And I know what the storms are like... It's an awesome book. I totally fell in love with Ryder and Jemma:)
