Jean Oram used to write lists of things to do for her friends when they couldn’t decide what to do together. When her first child was less than a year old she took up her old habit again and began a list of free play ideas in case her daughter ever came to her with those dreaded words on her lips, “I’m bored.” Within days she had hundreds of ideas. And eventually, this book was born. Her daughter is now a preteen and many of the activities in this book have been tested (or invented) in the Oram household.
Jean is a New York Times bestselling romance author, mother of two, instigator of play, and a fun wife. She loves to spend time in the great outdoors getting dirty and playing. (She loves it when her kids join in.) She’s worked as a library children’s programmer, ski instructor, as well as beekeeper. She lives in Canada with her family and big shaggy dog.
The prequel that started it all for lovers Devon and Olivia…
When worlds collide.
Devon Mattson has never been as captivated as he is by Olivia. She’s smart, witty and rich. But above all is the fact that even though they come from different worlds she understands him, his small town charm and his need for speed.
He knows that to be together they’ll both have to give up a lot, but he’s promised to always be there for her. Now, in college, and afterward too. Forever.
Olivia Carrington has never felt more alive than when she’s with Devon. She no longer feels the suffocating weight of expectations—just the freedom and support to follow her secret dreams and to become the person she’s always been afraid to be.
But when reality comes knocking their dream world begins to collapse. Will these two young lovers find their way back to each other or will their hearts become shattered beyond repair?
This prequel novella is a bonus companion story for their novel The Surprise Wedding. It can be read before or after their novel.
