This book is part of a series but does not have to be read within the series…….just start reading and you won’t want to put it down. The characters are so real. They feel as if they could be friends or neighbors. They aren’t perfect and don’t pretend to be. Jax is really good at saying the wrong things while Grace hopes that some day he’ll notice that she’s more than his good friend’s little sister. This story is set in a small town with some very small town attitudes; some of which feel and sound a bit old fashion. I loved this story and the characters. I liked that there were long held secrets which didn’t stay secret. I loved the close friendships and ties that were portrayed. I liked that real life was reflected and that life isn’t always nice and neat. This is a definitely must read.
Grace fell in love with Jax long before she knew she was but it seems Jax only sees her as his friend’s little sister. Jax has been protecting Grace from bully since she was 6 and feels that he’s still protecting her by keeping her at arm’s length. He is definitely not good enough for her and has no desire to pull her down. Grace however doesn’t believe that Jax isn’t good enough and she’s going after him. Things start changing after that first kiss but how those changes are going to end up is anyone’s guess!
THEIR LOVE WAS UNDENIABLE

Growing up, he never looked twice at her. Now Grace won't rest until she has Jax's undivided attention.
Jaxson Anderson can't deny that his best friend's kid sister is the sexiest woman in Mirabelle, Florida. Unwilling to burden Grace with his painful past, Jax keeps the sassy blonde at arm's length. Yet one heated kiss crumbles all of his carefully built defenses. But when a town secret surfaces, threatening to destroy everything they believe in, can the man who defended Grace from bullies as a child protect her now?
