Kasey has been in love with her best friend’s older brother since she was 8 years old. That’s a LONG time. Jake, on the other hand, saw Kasey as an annoying gnat since there is a 6 year age difference. When Jake comes home to visit at age 34…Kasey is engaged to his best friend. Now he’s telling himself that perhaps all of the obstacles he saw between them aren’t as big as he thought they should be. But can he take her away from his best friend?
“Something is obviously wrong with me because even knowing she was kissed roughly by someone other than me, less than two minutes ago, I want her.
Is it because I’ve always considered her mine even though I knew I couldn’t have her? Now that someone is trying to take her from me, I’m finding all of my reasons she shouldn’t be mine falling flat.”
This was a cute, emotional and romantic story, and I devoured it very quickly. I was torn between rooting for Jake to realize that he needs to go after Kasey before it’s too late and worrying about breaking his/her best friend Heath’s heart. At times I wondered whether maybe Heath would be a good match for her. I honestly didn’t who she would end up with and just wanted true love to win. I even shed a few tears before the end.
I definitely would recommend reading this book if you like a little angst and believe in second chances. I was riveted to the entire story and couldn’t put it down. I would love to read more stories about the characters in this book.
