Lucas Beck crawled through Melinda James’ window every night. Each time, gaining a piece of her heart and leaving a bit of his behind.

Lucas was in love with the girl next door, but he ruined any chance he had of making her his. So, he moved on without her.

Lindy gave her heart to the boy next door, but he left her humiliated and heartbroken. So, she started a new life without him. 

They both head off to college, leaving the other behind. Lucas finds success then misery on the Football field. Lindy finds new love, but it never feels quite right. 

Years later, Lucas and Lindy find themselves back in their hometown. Will Lindy open her window again and give Lucas another chance?



Upon reading the synopsis of this book, I was ecstatic. I am a huge fan of the happily ever afters and the girl next door kind of books. I was so hoping for a good book and I got one!

I found it very easy to connect with the characters in this book. The author did a great job making sure you knew who everyone was, which I LOVE. I find in some cases authors try to introduce so many characters you spend most of your time trying to remember who they were to begin with! I did read this book twice just so I could spend a little more time with Lindy and Luke (do not judge me).

I think she put a nice twist on this book. I could not tell which direction she was going to go until the last minute, which I love. The best books keep you guessing until the very end. However, this book did end kind of abruptly for me. The resolution took me a second to register because I was not expecting it to happen quite so quickly. The epilogue made up for the rather abrupt end which I think leads nicely into the next book of the series.

 Overall, I was a fan of the book.I would give the book 4 stars. She had some steamy scenes, some suspense, and a lot of fun! I am looking forward to the next book in the series to see what else she comes up with. I love discovering new authors and I think I might just put her on my must read list.
