Cooper Reeves was the boy-next-door. Every milestone, every memory of my youth was entangled with his.
We were inseparable… until college.
It wasn’t his friends, girls or even sports that came between us— it was me.
Tired of being in the friend zone, I finally made a move. Turns out it was the wrong one.
Cooper walked away to play his first year of professional football and left me behind with a broken heart.
It’s always been her. Even before I really knew what love was, Reese Latham was by my side, making me swear we’d be best friends forever.
And we were… until one night changed everything. I knew how she felt because I felt it too, but I pushed her away to save our friendship.
The longer we’re apart, the more I realize she’s not only my best friend, Reese is the love of my life.
I was kidding myself thinking I could let her go because now I know that living without her is the worst kind of agony.
Reese Latham was about to make the biggest mistake of her life.
At eight-years-old, we vowed to be best friends for the rest of our lives, thinking nothing could ever change that.
We were both wrong – we made mistakes, and grew apart. Until I realized living without her wasn’t an option.
I was almost too late…but I wouldn’t stand by and watch her walk down the aisle to another man. She might not choose me, but I’ll spend the rest of my life proving I’m all in.
Every step I take towards my happy ending takes me further away from my best friend.
Leave it to Cooper Reeves to wait until I’m about to say “I Do” before he finally admits how he feels.
It’s not his confession that has me doubting myself. It’s my heart. Because I know deep down, it’s him…it’s always been him.
I was crazy to think I could live without Cooper because sharing forever with my best friend is the best kind of bliss.
