When Lauren Monroe first laid eyes on Michael Delaney back in high school, she had every reason to stay away from him; within minutes of their first encounter, his volatile actions confirmed his notorious reputation. But Lauren saw something in him that caused her to question his bad-boy persona, and against her better judgment, she took a chance. She had no way of knowing that the unlikely friendship they formed would become so important to her. Or that it would end so painfully. Eight years later, when Lauren begins her new job at Learn and Grow Day Care, Michael is the last person she expects to see. Refusing to revisit the hurt and confusion of their past, Lauren vows to keep her distance from him. But staying away from Michael proves to be more difficult than she thought, despite her lingering grief and her instincts for self-preservation. As Lauren and Michael recall the friendship that changed them forever and the events that tore them apart, will they finally be able to heal? Or will the ghosts of Michael's past prove to be too much to overcome?
The book begins with Lauren going to her interview at Learn and Grow Day Care and getting hired on the spot thanks to her credentials. She starts the following day and soon finds out that Michael Delaney, a man from her past, had recently decided to put his three year old daughter in at Learn and Grow. As hard as it is for Lauren to be around Michael, she does her best to keep it professional talking to him only when it concerns his daughter. But, it gets harder and harder for them to resist the chemistry as the unanswered questions that ended their initial relationship finally get answered.
This lovely book combines both present day scenes and flashbacks of the past, showing us the beginnings of Lauren and Michael’s relationship up to the devastating ending. I found this book to be an easy read, but one that I feel will be loved by many. I would definitely read more by Priscilla Glenn and recommend this book to people looking for their next good read.
