Childhood Crush Paperback Bundle
Childhood Crush Paperback Bundle
A bundle of eleven childhood crush romances.
Love Me Like You Do: When my best friend asked me to be his fake girlfriend in order to pursue custody of his daughter, I didn’t hesitate to help out. Living together, sharing his bed, and waking up in his arms, quickly rekindle the long-forgotten childhood crush I once had on him. I can’t ignore his charm, the way I feel in his arms, or how amazing he is with his daughter. I remind myself daily that our relationship isn’t real, until he proposes with his grandmother’s ring. Harrison is determined to prove to me that the fairy-tales are real, but I know from experience happy ever afters don’t exist.
Fighting Chance: I’m not bitter that Savannah St. James rejected me in high school. It's her cluttered storefront I have a problem with. Still, it’s hard to stay mad at her when she’s more beautiful than I remember and her son keeps finding new ways to sneak over to my hardware store every chance he gets.
Lucky Chance: Colton Castle and I are nothing alike. But when there’s trouble in my neighborhood, he’s everywhere I turn, looking sexy in his uniform. I start to see a different side of him. He's protective and caring. And makes my heart race. There's a problem: he's my sister's ex, which means he's completely off limits.
My Best Chance: I’ve put my rebellious years behind me and I’m finally doing something I can be proud of. Single-parenting my son and opening a garage with my best friend has given me a fresh start. One that came with an unexpected attraction to my best friend’s sister. Her brother warned her against guys like me, but the more time I spend with her, the more I want her.
Worth a Chance: From lemonade stand wars as kids to competing coffee shops as adults, Ben always finds ways to get under my skin. But, no matter how he pushes my buttons, I refuse to let him ruin my business. Of course, there is the matter of his adorable seven-year-old daughter he’s now struggling to raise on his own. I want to keep him in the familiar enemy-zone, but his little girl is melting my heart.
Waiting for You: Alex seems to be utter perfection… and he barely notices I exist. Or so I thought. Lately, everywhere I look he's there. Renting a room in my bed and breakfast. Devouring my pastries. Wanting to talk every morning over coffee. Is it possible my lifelong crush finally sees me as more than his little sister's best friend?
Somebody to Love: My best friend, Gia, has a rule for her employees and her friends: No dating her brothers. But Leo Giovanni is the guy I’d secretly crushed on since high school—who also happens to be Gia’s eldest brother. Leo has always had a special relationship with my daughter, but when he starts coming around more, taking us out on dates, building Evie a playhouse, and whispering sweet Italian words to me, I find myself lowering the walls I’d erected around my heart. How can we make a relationship last when everything is so stacked against us?
Everything About You: Silas Sharpe is enemy number one—my biggest competitor and my brothers’ best friend. Seeing an opportunity to “spy” on the offerings at Chesapeake Resort under the guise of attending a “friend’s” wedding, I took it, dragging my best friend and my brother with me. When Silas cornered me in a utility closet during the wedding reception, I finally succumbed to the years of pent-up frustration and hate, giving in to my baser instincts. This was supposed to be a onetime thing, but in true Silas Sharpe fashion, he refused to give up until he had the one thing that had eluded him for years—me.
Forbidden Love: The younger sister to four older brothers, I was off-limits to every guy in town—especially my brothers’ best friend. At a fundraising event at my family’s ski resort, Tyler approached me with an offer to partner together to raise money for charity. Desperate to find my footing and prove to my father that I deserved a position in his company, I agreed to Tyler’s proposition. Our task was simple: Construct dugouts for local softball teams. Instead, our shared moments were filled with stolen kisses in the outfield, surrendering to the undeniable spark between us.
Reviving Hearts: A long time ago I fell in love with my brother’s best friend, Heath. We kept our relationship a secret, knowing my brother would never approve. I had faith that in time we would come clean and declare our love to the world, but Heath broke things off before that could ever happen. I fled from my hometown and vowed never to return. Now I’ve inherited my grandmother’s Inn and I have no choice but to go back. It’s not as simple as just selling the property, it needs to be renovated first. When the realtor said he knew just the guy, I never suspected it would be Heath. The moment he steps back into my life, I can’t deny that the attraction is even greater than it was all those years ago.
Trusting Forever: Sebastian and I have been best friends forever. He knows everything about me, except that I’ve secretly crushed on him for years. When Sebastian finds himself without a nanny over the holidays, he makes me an offer I can’t refuse. Move into his cabin on the family’s Christmas tree farm and be a nanny to his little girl. This Christmas, I might finally find my way out of the friend-zone and into my best friend’s heart.
