Life’s. Little. Surprises.
The last thing seven-year-old Carrigan "Ace" Casper foresaw was an eight-year-old Heath Lovelly walking into her life the day her mother died. From that moment on, Heath sticks by her side, slowly becoming her strength, her confidant, and her entire world. What she doesn’t know is, she's his saving grace, too.
Ten years later, Ace is handed another crippling challenge that threatens everything in her almost perfect life. Only, this time, she doesn't turn to Heath, hiding the truth instead. But Heath knows Ace too well and won't back down easily. He's ready to do whatever it takes and will stay by her side until she accepts that their love is the kinda love worth fighting for.
Will he be her forever triumph or her unexpected downfall?
And an unexpected journey to falling in love.

As friends to lovers stories go-this wasn't an incredibly unique story, it has been done before; Quiet, shy, and innocent girl with the best friend who is a bit of a man whore-boy and girl secretly crush on each other but neither wants to ruin their friendship. Where this book stands out among the crowd is the writing and the characters themselves. First and foremost- they were actually best friends, have been since they were quite young, and the feelings that developed happened over time; they weren't two people just hott for each other that pretend to be friends til they can hook up. The emotions shared between the two was deep, genuine, and intense, even if they refuse to acknowledge it at first. Now, they both had their immature, hormone induced moments but that was to be expected- they are in high school after all, and one thing that tends to drive me crazy is when an author matures a character beyond their age. It makes them less believable in my eyes. There will be laughs, plenty of tears, drama, angst, and enough chemistry that you could choke on it. But in the end, it's a story about a friendship that never lets you down and stands the test of time, and a love worth risking it all for.
Sometimes, it scares me how much my world revolves around him. I feel an unfamiliar flutter in my chest as he stares at me, and I can't tell if it's fear, or something else.
