Eighteen years to get to a good place, and it only took eighteen seconds for her entire world to fall apart.
He loves her? He loves her not? She doesn’t need the last petal of a daisy to answer this question.
She already knows.
She fell in love, and he didn’t.
Oh, he waded into the pool of love, but while she dived headfirst into the deep end, he remained in the shallow end.
Piper Reynolds has spent the better part of a decade crushing on Nick. And he’s spent just as long oblivious to this fact. Yet she’s not that awkward, shy girl anymore. But he’s still popular, far too handsome, and out of her league. And he still hasn’t noticed her.
Until he does. Until he makes her dreams come true.
Piper has shaken off the unpleasant high school years. She now has a great teaching job, the man of her dreams, and is planning a fairy tale wedding. Her life is perfect.
She may have fallen for the one guy guaranteed to break her heart.
Nick Taylor doesn’t do serious. He definitely doesn’t do head over heels. At a young age, he lost both his parents. And that loss has made him cautious and closed off. But he’s sure a relationship with the sweet teacher is possible while still protecting his heart.
Until he caught feelings.
Until the unresolved past came crashing back demanding resolution.
Sometimes love isn’t always clear lines. It becomes blurred with confused minds and hearts torn in two.
Sometimes love hurts.
