For Robbie Fisher, Jason Morrow was always more than just the boy next door. He was her best friend, and the one person to whom she could confide her secrets, hopes, and sorrows. Then he left town to go to college, and Robbie was left feeling lost. Years later, she’s still searching for direction and purpose when Jason walks back into her life. Jason lived next door to Robbie for most of their lives, and he’s been in love with her for nearly as long.

They’re no longer the kids they once were. Can these two old friends take the leap and forge a new relationship together, or was all of Jason’s waiting in vain?
