Now Emmaline Carson has settled into her career as a graphic designer, though she’d rather be painting or shopping with her sister Layla. But then – in the years before she went to art school in Paris – she was a shy, awkward teenager with frizzy hair, a flat chest and a massive crush on the boy across the street, Cole Marlowe. Too bad her incredibly hot neighbor only had eyes for Layla.
Cole is now a confident, laid-back attorney who’s even hotter than he used to be. He’s planning to stay single while working his way up the corporate ladder – until he’s knocked off course by a chance run-in with Emma.
Everything is different between Cole and Emma now. He finally sees her in a way she only dreamed of, and their hot chemistry is fueled by a growing friendship. But Emma’s deception of her sister – who wants Cole for herself – and the secret Cole’s been keeping for more than a decade threaten to tear apart what’s only just begun. Because sometimes the only thing standing in the way of now is then.

Now And Then
I read voraciously and this book is the best book I've read in months. I liked the characters as they developed as the story progressed and I loved the flow of the book.
Now and Then by Brenda Rothert
I enjoyed this book and the real day to day issues. It was for me about how each handles situations differently. Emmaline felt like the shadow of her older sister, but struggled to be her own person. Cole dealt with a sister with mental illness, and struggled with how to go through it and not be bitter. So yes it was refreshing and not written in a fairytale but real life issues. Loved everything about it! Kept it real!
Ten thumbs up!!!!
