Nate Reynolds is everything I shouldn’t want. Aside from being my best friend’s older brother, he’s a cocky, smooth-talking, panty-dropping playboy of a cop. And yet, I’m helplessly drawn to him.
His charm and good looks reduce me to a fumbling, mumbling teenaged version of myself, which pretty much guarantees that nothing will ever come of my silly crush.
Until the night of my best friend’s wedding.
Jenny Jones is the definition of innocence. She’s also my little sister’s best friend, making her completely off limits. She’s a forever kind of girl with hearts in her eyes, where I’ve always been more of a love ‘em and leave ‘em kind of guy.
Until a night spent between the sheets with her has me questioning everything I thought I wanted.
I tried my hardest to stay away, but you know what they say about the best intentions . . .
Falling in love is like learning to tie your shoes, Uncle Nate. It’s hard and it takes time–like a lot of time. But once you get it, you know how to tie them forever. You don’t just forget.
Jenny is best friends with Nate’s little sister, Natalie. What’s one thing he shouldn’t do? Be attracted to her, but that’s not the case.
Jenny doesn’t have the best history when it comes to relationships. She is self-conscious when it comes to her diabetes, especially after her ex made her feel terrible for having a disease she can’t control. She is the girl who doesn’t does one night stands, she wants commitment and a relationship. However, she gives in to her crush on Nate Reynolds and has a one night stand, but that wasn’t enough for either of them.
I loved watching their relationship change from that one night stand, to becoming close friends to eventually admitting their feelings and becoming lovers. Nate never made Jenny feel uncomfortable when it came to her diabetes, if anything he encouraged her and helped her gain some confidence in herself.
I loved this story so much. Tatum stole the show though, that girl is full of wisdom, especially when it comes to providing love and relationship advice to her Uncle Nate. This story is heartwarming and a perfect spring time read.
