Everyone in North Salem thinks they know Jessie Quinn. She is the town's quintessential girl next door. The woman you can always turn to when you need a helping hand. Nobody knows that she's spent years overcoming the emotional scars left by her last boyfriend.
As a single dad and task force officer with the FBI, Mack Ellsbury moves back to North Salem to be closer to his family, not to find love. Then Jessie Quinn returns to his life. Soon Mack no longer sees Jessie as the quiet girl he once tutored in high school but rather the woman he is falling in love with.
Mack's love helps Jessie erase the scars she's carried around for so long, but when his ex-wife decides she wants reconciliation, their relationship is put in jeopardy.
