Successful, career-driven, and overwhelmingly handsome Patrick Douglas has been in love with the girl next door ever since he met the spunky brunette in the fourth grade, and she has absolutely no idea. He’s had to sit by firmly in the dreaded friend zone for years waiting for the love of his life to wake up and see him. Luckily, he’s a patient man.
Danyelle Strickland, Danny to everyone except for Patrick (in his words, “a beautiful name like hers should never be shortened”), is focused on running Strickland’s Boutique and getting her new fashion blog up and running. Meanwhile, everyone around her seems to be falling in love and getting married.
It’s their funeral. After watching her father get divorced for the fourth time, Danny knows now more than ever that marriage and family life isn’t for her. She hates kids and has never wanted them. So how did she end up pregnant? Life is a cruel witch.
Can Patrick help Danny finally believe in love?
