At age twelve, Ashlee Nichols fell in love with her brother’s best friend, Beau Jacobsen. Everyone thought she was cute and that her crush was simply that…a crush. But her young heart had known he was the one, and she had planned on marrying him as soon as she was old enough. Unfortunately, when she confessed her feelings to Beau, he’d laughed, patted her on the head and told her he was flattered. Sure, Beau had been twenty-two at the time, but she knew she wouldn't always be a little girl. Just when she turned eighteen and was finally old enough to date him, Beau joined the Army and was deployed to Afghanistan. Now, six years later, Beau is back in Mitchel Creek, Georgia for a few weeks. He’s hotter than ever…and still ten years older, something he can’t seem to get past. He still sees Ashlee as a glorified little sister…or does he?
Oh my goodness... So many heart eyes for this adorable book! Where do I begin?! How about with the cover...oooo la la! I LOVE the cover. It is so cute and sassy and is the perfect representation of Ashlee. She is one sweet, sassy and spontaneous girl. You meet her in the first book of the series as Chase's little sister and now she has grown up and is a beautiful young woman that looks like a fairy tale princesses and just happens to be that for her job. Her twin sister Taylin gets married at the beginning of the book and after many years Ashlee sees Beau... the love of her life. She has had a crush on Chase's best friend forever and everyone knows it. Sparks begin to fly from the first moment they see each other again.
Beau can't believe what he was feeling when he saw Ashlee and how grown up and beautiful she is. Nothing can happen though because it's Chase's little sister. The connection these two have and the story line made for one swoon worthy book and it did not disappoint. I love the way Cindy writes and I was hooked from the first page all the way to the end. It is a clean romance with some steamy kisses and I enjoyed this book very much!
