This story takes place when Aaliyah Wyndham is a twenty-year-old intern, working in Los Angeles for the summer while staying with family friend, Lucas D'Alessandro. Lucas seems to have gone a little Hollywood since he left South Carolina. It's all about the girls, the cars and the money. How will Aaliyah enjoy living with L-Money?
There there is the mysterious guy she meets while waiting at the airport. She's surprised to find that he isn't some sarcastic jerk after all. He's Fuminori Kawaguchi, someone whose friendship she thought lost to her a long time ago. The two will renew their acquaintance as they bond over the summer, when they're not both working towards their futures.
Their summer romance is complicated by Lucas' overprotective nature, and by his rampant hypocrisy. I mean, how many women will Aaliyah have to watch him turn away at the door before he stops shadowing her on dates? Doesn't he understand that she's all grown up, now, and that she can handle herself?
How will she cope with the unwelcome fame that comes along with being The Next Big Thing's apparent love interest? Will Fumi continue modeling, or will he return to his studies, and pursue the future his family expects of him, the future he's always thought he wanted?
Most of all, what will happen in the future? Is this just a summer romance, or can their hearts stand the test of time and distance? Find out in A Summer Heart.
