Imagine finding the love of your life at the age of six.
Bliss Carrington did.
Bliss has known Jimmy Brason since first grade. He took on the role of the big brother Bliss never had, breaking Bliss out of her shy shell, encouraging her to have fun in high school, and pushing her to live her life to the fullest. They have always been friends—until one day, Bliss wanted more. Now seeing women everywhere swooning over Jimmy, head quarterback of the New York Cougars, is enough to drive her to madness.
Jimmy has been in love with Bliss forever, but she doesn’t know and she can never find out. In all the craziness of his fast track to fame and money, Bliss is the one person who has kept him sane. He firmly believes that history repeats itself and with his tainted past, he’s afraid that he’s fated to hurt her if he allows himself to follow his heart.
Bliss has watched Jimmy grow from a boy into a man, and it’s not fair that someone else will get to keep him when she knows in her heart that he only belongs to her.
When they tiptoe on the edge of love, can their friendship remain intact with both of them ignoring the rumblings that’s threatening to explode?
Le sigh. Oh how I love my besties-turned-lovers books. AND this one wasn't full of teen angst like so many are. I highly recommend it!
Bliss and Jimmy are intricately likable characters who we learn about as the author weaves the present time with the past like an expert. It's not a high-powered sex-crazed book like most new adult offerings out there today, but it is a natural love story. It progresses naturally, showing two people who know each other so well and are so close that they can't actually see that the other loves them as more than a friend. Read this. You'll enjoy the journey.
