When her love life turns sour, a trip to her home town in Far North Queensland for her cousin's wedding is the perfect time for Sophie Copinni to take stock of her future. There, two weeks before she turns thirty, she finds a bucket list from her teenage years of ten things to do before that birthday. It can only be a sign from the universe. Most of the challenges are fun, although one thing on the list scares the hell out of her: she is to reveal a long-held family secret the very reason she ran away without an explanation eight years ago; away from the love of her life, and the shores of Australia.
A road trip home for the wedding is Dylan Stone's chance to escape the shady operations he has uncovered at the Sydney tattoo parlour he runs. Back in Shorefield, surrounded by the landscape and loved ones that he's missed so fiercely, Dylan starts to realise that maybe it's time to make his homecoming permanent. But there is still the unresolved matter of Sophie the only woman he's ever truly loved, the same woman who broke his heart and skipped town so long ago.
Dylan and Sophie try to keep their distance, but cannot deny the intense chemistry between them, and the undying love for one another that both have buried deep in their hearts. But if Sophie tackles the scariest challenge on her list, will it push Dylan away forever? And will her family ever be the same again?
