Kimberly Urbane is used to living a predictable life. She’d love to have a husband and a houseful of kids someday, but her thriving photography career leaves her too busy to date. At least that’s what she tells herself. Besides, she’s been in love with Jake Taylor since junior high. Too bad Jake has always thought of her as one his best friend’s little sisters, and Kimberly has always been too shy to prove him otherwise. That is until he unexpectedly comes back into town, needing a room to rent, and Kimberly has one available. Well, sort of. Long days, and even longer nights, prove that there’s an undeniable attraction between them. But Kimberly fears it may not be enough to convince Jake that they have a chance together.
A bitter divorce years ago left Jake Taylor wounded and no longer interested when it comes to love. His life as an international journalist, traveling around the world with nothing to tie him down, suits him just fine - until a visit back to his hometown threatens to change his mind. He never paid much attention to his friend’s kid sister and her obvious crush on him, but now they’re both all grown up and the more time he spends with her, the harder she is to resist. Jake knows he can’t possibly give Kimberly the future she wants and deserves, but his feelings for her are strong and his ability to resist her is weakening.
When wounded pride and well-kept secrets turn everything in their world upside-down, can Kimberly and Jake put the past aside, and find their way to a happy ending?
