“I don’t need a man taking up the time I want to spend painting and reading and doing whatever else I want.” (26)
Emma is an art geek that has traveled to Europe and now works as a Graphic Designer, which automatically relates her to me.
Emma and Cole have known each other since they were kids living across the street from each other. Now, 12 years later, they bump into each other and it’s like they were never apart. A long-harbored crush resurfaces as the two get reacquainted while contending with family history and drama. Apparently, the two families are close friends and always figured that Cole would end up with Layla, Emma’s cooler, successful, older sister. But Emma and Cole can’t fight their attraction to one another.
A story of then and now, this is a tale that goes back and forth between past and present. Reader experiences the spark and passion between the two characters while reliving their past as well. Cole and Emma are just so good together.
Quick and sweet story.
