A lively, fun read from Cathryn Hein. Everyone should have a Nick in their lives. He’s smart, sexy and just a little cheeky (okay, maybe a lot cheeky). Most of all, he’s irresistible. Ms Hein charms us all the way to The End with innovative ways to romance the girl you didn’t notice at school but sure as hell notice now. There is nothing Nick won’t do to get Chrissy’s attention in this heartwarming, youthful romp to an HEA.
No girl forgets her first crush. The least he could do is remember it.
Chrissy James has only been home in small-town Levenham a few weeks when her teenage crush plays hero and saves her from an aggressive drunk. Seven years ago, Nick Burroughs was the school hottie while she was the overweight girl with braces, bad hair, and an unrequited obsession with the sports star every girl in school wanted. Her failed efforts to attract Nick’s attention still burn.
Chrissy sure has his attention now, but she’s older, smarter and focused on settling into her new dream job as wine marketer. No matter how sexy he’s grown, or how keen his interest, Nick will need to do a lot more than see off a drunk if he wants to win her over.
