Clover Watson wants more from life than what she can find on her daddy's farm in southern Oregon. Young, smart, and driven, she has a plan and she refuses to be distracted from her goals. After four years at the University of Washington in Seattle, she heads home for the summer with her diploma and an acceptance letter to graduate school at University of Portland. She's sure she’s got things all figured out.
Except for Jake Feldman. He was one of her childhood friends, and she hasn't seen him since she left for college four years ago. This summer he's back in town and all grown up -- sweet, handsome, and completely smitten with Clover.
At first, she thinks a harmless summer fling is the perfect reward for her hard work at school. But as the summer continues and their romance grows, Jake challenges everything she thought she knew about herself and her plans. When the end of summer comes, Clover is forced to evaluate what she really wants, but can she find a way to write Jake into her life?
Okay first I must admit it took me longer to read this book then any other book I have read recently and not because the story was bad, in fact it was a well written and sweet story. I guess there was the problem for me…haha. It has been so long so I read your normal boy/girl next door story that I didn’t quite know what I was doing. I know that sounds very strange. There was no alpha male, just sweet Jake. The exact kind of guy I would want to date my daughter. Clover was just as sweet. They had known each other for years with Jake visiting his aunt for the summers. RJ, Clover’s little brother, and Jake were always friends. Clover being 3 years older then Jake and 7 older then RJ she was looking out for them as kids. When she reconnects with Jake the summer he is 19 and she is 22 she is surprised by her change in feelings since she had last seen him. Jake well he has always crushed on Clover and can’t believe she is finally seeing him. Will they have a summer romance? Will they have a lasting relationship? Well you will have to read the book to find out but I can promise you that you will not be disappointed in anything about this sweet story of a young couple discovering each other and themselves.
