This was a cute story about a girl Jeanella, who guards her heart because she has been hurt in the past. She goes for the safe guy that doesn't make her feel anything special. That is until she meets Maxwell Knight.
Fate seems to intervene, and they happen to run into each other quite often before they even speak. His flirtations and gentleman ways catch her attention. She can't deny the chemistry she feels towards him. But what happens when she realizes who he really is? Follow their courtship and see if Jeanella will free her heart or end up a lonely lady.
I liked this book, however some of the wording seemed off. Perhaps a little over descriptive as well, but overall a safe light read.
Suddenly, Max placed his hand under my elbow. With a slight tug, I was somewhat in his hold. With a light gasp and a wave of heat flushing through me again, I was lost in his eyes. He leaned in. “I had a wonderful time,” he whispered. “Thanks for being my lunch buddy.” Then he handed me the brown bag. “Lunch buddies share their feelings, stories, and even goodies.”
I radiated a huge shy smile and walked away. Needing that Rice Krispies Treat right that moment, I reached inside the bag. What I saw stunned me, and even tugged at my heart. He hadn’t broken it in half as I had expected. Instead, he had molded it into the shape of a heart.
After that, I knew…unwillingly…I was making a space for him in my heart. Thinking he would be devouring his sandwich, I looked over my shoulder just as I pushed the door to exit. His eyes were set on me intently, and I got a glimpse of his wink that made me want to dive into his arms. I liked the feeling way too much!
