He’s so far out of her league he’s barely on the same planet. So why does he seem to think they should be more than friends?
Suzette Lindley has had a crush on Gabe Thurman since she was ten years old. After all, what’s a girl to do when the hottest guy in school is also the boy next door and your older brother’s best friend?
But Suzette has always felt invisible, even to her own family, so it was no surprise that Gabe rarely noticed her—except maybe to pat her on the head like a child. That was years ago, but Suzette isn’t likely to forget, especially not when her small town of Echo Creek is buzzing with the news that Gabe is back.
Gabe is only back in town for a few days, hoping to convince his mother to move closer to the city where he can help with her medical needs. He hadn’t counted on almost running over little Suzette Lindley with his truck, or on his mom’s insistence that he keep an eye on Suzette while she recovers from a head injury.
Suddenly he finds himself noticing Suzette in ways he never has before. She’s kind, giving, and utterly gorgeous, and she might just be the woman he’s been waiting for, but first he has to convince her that she’s more than just a fling or his best friend’s little sister.
And how can he convince her to give him a chance when he’s leaving town again with no idea when he’ll be back?
