Finding the nerve to meet his crush is difficult for high school senior Anderson St John. Often, he stands in front of Morgan Brookes’ store windows during his training runs. Intrigued by the teenager peering inside, Morgan wants to know more, and invites him inside, just to talk. This leads to dating and a decision to attend the Halloween dance at Anderson’s school. Morgan uses his considerable talents to create authentic costumes for them both… but the night of the dance, a long-dead World War II ace pilot makes his presence known.
Anderson has a lot of his plate. At eighteen he’s a high school senior who often gets tormented by his classmates. Even though school isn’t his favorite place to be, Anderson is determined to keep a high point grade average and to make something of himself. At home, he has a loving mother who is slightly scatterbrained about everything except for her art, so Anderson has taken on the responsibility to keeping them fed and other household chores.
Anderson has had a crush on store owner, Morgan Brookes for months. Every morning, Anderson and his dog jog by Morgan’s store in hopes that he’ll see his sexy crush. One morning, Morgan spots him peeking in the window and introduces himself to Anderson and to the young man’s shock, asks him out. Morgan is a few years older than Anderson, but they quickly form a quick friendship and heavy attraction between them. Despite their attraction they continue to slowly build their relationship until both are comfortable being with one another. But will outside forces keep the young couple apart?
I loved this book! I loved the descriptive writing style Ms. Dennis has and I really enjoyed watching these two characters meet and fall in love. I do want to point out that Anderson is eighteen and in high school, but he is very mature and settled for his age. Also, Morgan is only twenty-four, so even though they are on different places in their lives, they still fit really well together. The age difference did not bother me in the least since Anderson is of age to make his own decisions and in no way did I ever believe that Morgan was taking advantage of him. Their relationship builds slowly in this book and it’s so well paced that it in the end, they were an easy couple to root for and hope they have a happy ending together.
There is also an interesting paranormal twist to the story that kept me glued to the storyline. I don’t want to spoil it, but I will say I thought it enhanced the story quite nicely and I enjoyed it a lot. Between the well-written and likeable characters and Ms. Dennis’ ability to sweep this reader into her story, I quickly read through this book and wished for more. Thankfully, this is the first book in a series, and I know I can’t wait to read more about these amazing characters and their journey to be together. Recommended!
