’For all the girls next door – and the boys who love them.’
I was all in when I read that dedication. The idea of the boy next door falling in love with the neighbor girl is iconic and one that has women saying, “Awe!”
”A simple story about a handsome prince, a good-hearted princess, and their sweet love.”
Awe, doesn’t that sound lovely and all it needs is the magical – “They lived happily ever after.” As with any story nothing comes easy and especially second chances. Brent is the guy during his high school days that all the other males wanted to be and all the females fawned over. Now, that he’s in his early thirties and has become less of the ‘young and dumb’ stage and more of mature adult, he’s become a guy to be admired.
Kennedy, the girl next door, was more of the nerdy social circle during her high school years. Fourteen years has passed since she’s seen Brent and she’s back in town for work. Her first line of business is a criminal case against Brent’s young client.
The case these two are trying against each other hits close to home for me. It’s about a young teenage boy who feels unseen and does something drastic to get the attention of those around him. His actions were of the criminal nature but his intent wasn’t. It was like Ms. Chase knew my son’s friend who did something similar to the teenager in the story. This is the second book by Ms. Chase where a young male character has found himself brushing up against the law. The previous book had an even younger male who found himself pushing the boundaries with the law. As stated by many others besides myself… Ms. Chase knows the male mind quite well.
The second book, Sustained, remains as my favorite Emma Chase book written to date and this book comes in second place for favorites by Ms. Chase. I love the older characters, the witty banter, the intriguing story line, and most of all the male point of view. Thank you, Ms. Chase, for your continued pursuant in writing humorous renditions from male mind.
