Isabel Stamos makes the best choice of her life to leave her suburban Los Angeles, all work and no play, lifestyle to escape to the beautiful beach serenity of San Diego. Here she finds the peacefulness she has been longing for in attempt to shed her lonely barriers. In the midst of running away from the dreadful life she left behind, she’s hoping for a new career, a new social life and most desperate of all, a new beginning.
On a calm, hot, sizzling July afternoon, under the tranquil California sun, Isabel is set to enjoy her first days in the new city when she has an awkward encounter with a beautiful stranger. Why is Luke Brady dressed in an expensive suit at the beach is beyond question. But the instant attraction between these two strangers is evident.
Luke’s surprised at his own impulsive behavior of offering Isabel a job interview at his prestigious company. She’s pleasant, composed and intelligent so he ignores his attraction and gives her a career instead. Working side by side on a daily basis, Luke soon realizes this Greek beauty is clearly on the run and disturbed by some dark secret. She’s been severely wounded and this unexpected sense of possession causes Luke to want to protect her. He anxiously tries to keep a professional relationship between them but her naive ways keep luring Luke back into Isabel’s world.
