For as long as I can remember, I've been in love with my best friend's brother.

And she has no idea.

For that matter, neither does he.

Not that it matters.   He'll always see me as that annoying kid who clung to his little sister like a shadow.

Some dreams are just too farfetched, too childish. But others-like my burgeoning cupcake business-are within reach. It's time to put on my big girl pants and move past my crush on Theo Jones. Once and for all.


Love at first sight isn't real. 

Hell, I've never been sure I believed in love at all.

But when I see   her  , time stands still. A beam of sunlight pours through an opening in the tree canopy, surrounding her like a spotlight. Her face is hidden by a cascade of blonde hair, shining like spun gold in the sunbeam. Even without seeing her face, I know without a doubt that I'm looking at the most beautiful woman in the world.

I don't just  want her. It's more than that. Somehow, I   know  , deep in my soul, that she's it for me. I'll never want anyone else.

Then she turns, and I see her face.

It's a face I've seen thousands of times. But it feels like I'm seeing it-like I'm seeing   her  -for the first time in my life.
Holly Patterson. My little sister's best friend. 

I want to make her mine, to claim her,   forever  .
