Ashlee Nichols fell in love with her brother’s best friend, Beau Jacobsen, when she was twelve-years-old. She knew he was the one, her very own Prince Charming, and that one day they’d marry and live happily ever after. When she confessed her feelings to Beau, he’d laughed, patted her on the head and told her he was flattered. Though she was crushed, she held onto her feelings, waiting until she wasn't a little girl. Just when she turns eighteen, Beau joins the Army and is deployed to Afghanistan. Now, six years later, Beau is back in Mitchel Creek, Georgia for a few weeks. He’s hotter than ever … and still ten years older. Ashlee's never seen the age difference as a problem but Beau has a hard time getting past it. She doesn't mind helping him out a little and soon his perspective changes, bringing up a whole new set of problems as her older brother's best friend becomes something much more.
What I liked:
The story was very sweet and funny. The plot was well developed and the pace of the story was great (with the exception noted below).
It was easy to experience the emotions that Ashlee did throughout the story. Though she was beautiful, she was insecure, feeling like she was incompetent and always in the shadow of her “perfect” twin and older brother. And Beau was sweet and dense and made some bad choices. Which made him perfectly imperfect.
The secondary characters were also enjoyable. While many came from previous books in the series, it has been so many books since I read them, I didn’t remember their stories, but it didn’t detract from my enjoyment of this one. So it can stand alone with no problem.
What I didn’t like:
Too many typos and grammatical errors. I get really distracted by grammar errors in stories. I don’t always mention them, but there were enough in this story it was distracting to me. I blame my mom for this. 🙂 I hope the author gets a good proof-reader for her next book. She is too good a writer to let things like this detract from her stories.
The ending. Not that it wasn’t satisfactory – it was. It was just that parts of the epilogue felt a little like the author realized that she had loose ends to tie up, so she resolved a bunch of things there all at once. It wasn’t quite like a laundry list, but some of the details could have been left out or the resolutions could have been explained a little more creatively.
