She didn’t want to be in love with her best friend…
Divorced mother of two, Wendy Burkett, is no stranger when it comes to taking risks. In fact, after divorcing a philandering husband, opening a unique business, and raising her children on her own, she’s pretty much an expert at it. But some risks just aren’t worth it. Or are they? Loving her best friend is normal. Falling in love with him… That’s a different story altogether – especially when she’s eleven years older than he is.
He knows that only one thing in life really matters…
Jake Evans has seen too much heartbreak, both before the war and after. He’s learned to cherish the people in his life, some more than others – his neighbor, for instance. She’s intelligent, successful, lovely, and the woman he’s been in love with for eight long years. She’s also got a hang up about his age. Can he overcome her doubts and convince her that they can have a long and wonderful future together? Or will he have to content himself with being nothing more than a friend forever?
