Hudson and Blake Lovelly lead a charmed life—successful careers, loving family, beautiful home. Now, on the eve of their daughter’s birth, they’re counting their blessings. Life wasn’t always so generous . . .
Fifteen years ago, seventeen-year-old Blake Voss walked into Cranbrook Preparatory High to participate in the school year’s most-prestigious debate competition. She never expected to fall for the pretentious, golden-haired boy on the opposing debate team, and he never expected to be ensnared by the quick-witted prankster with a heart of gold.
Their mutual love for joking pretense soon leads them to pull their biggest prank yet--pretending to be in love. But when danger threatens, Hudson can’t conceal his growing affection. He’ll do anything to be with Blake, even if it means risking his heart to protect her.
They didn’t plan for their friendship to grow into a love story. But sometimes, all it takes is a little Hope.
This powerful companion to Forever Kinda Love tells the history of Hudson and Blake’s relationship. Laced with haunting emotion and beautiful sentiment, this is a tale about overcoming even the darkest moments, reminding us all to love more.
“What was that for?”
“Can’t I just kiss you because I want to?” The corner of her lip curves up. “Golden boy.”
This time, I press my lips to hers, returning the favor of being caught off guard. Then I pull back, just enough so that I can see her eyes and mouth.
She bites her lip. “What was that for?”
“I’ve wanted to kiss you since that first day I saw you at Cranbrook.”
She lowers her gaze, regret falling over her earlier feistiness.
I put my finger under her chin and tilt it up toward me. “Hey.”
“I don’t do this often, you know,” she says. “Kissing random guys.”
I smile, feeling smug. “Good. I don’t either. Kiss random girls, that is. You’re my first.”
