About this ebook

Susan Mallery, #1 New York Times bestselling author, delivers a charming, uplifting story about second chances and found families.

A long, hot summer with her secret crush...
What could possibly go wrong?

Nissa Lang knows Desmond Stilling is out of her league. He’s a CEO, she’s a teacher. He’s gorgeous, she’s...not. So when her house-sitting gig falls through and Desmond offers her a place to stay for the summer, she vows not to reveal how she’s felt about him since their first—and only—kiss.

Desmond should’ve known better than to bring temptation into his house. He decided long ago that his best friend’s sister was too sweet, too good, for him. She deserves a guy who can give his heart. For her sake, he’s stayed away. But as her laughter breathes life into his lonely mansion, he’s not sure how long he’ll be able to resist.

From Harlequin Special Edition: Believe in love. Overcome obstacles. Find happiness.

Loved this sweet romance between long time friends Nissa and Desmond. Both have had feelings since Desmond took Nissa to her senior prom but has stayed away since his best friend is Nissa's brother. Nissa needed a place to stay for the summer when her summer house sitting job fell through. Desmond has offered Nissa to stay with him. Desmond is a very giving person but does not know how to give his heart to someone. Will it be too late for him and Nissa. I had a hard time putting this book down, Loved it. Desmond is such a giving person and was so happy when Nissa finally broke through to his heart. This is told in two voices. Once again Susan Mallery has captured my heart!!
