Summary: (from goodreads) Posey Osterhagen can't complain. She owns a successful architectural salvaging company, she's surrounded by her lovable, if off-center, family and she has a boyfriend—sort of. Still, some thing's missing. Something tall, brooding and criminally good-looking…something like Liam Murphy.
When Posey was sixteen, the bad boy of Bellsford, New Hampshire, broke her heart. But now he's back, sending Posey's traitorous schoolgirl heart into overdrive once again. She should be giving him a wide berth, but it seems fate has other ideas….
Posey’s high school days were less than perfect. A small underdeveloped skinny girl, pretty much invisible to boys, had a crush on Liam, the hottest bad boy of the whole school. A comment she overhears Liam saying to her prospective arranged Prom date, changes her life forever but fails to change her feeling for him. Needless to say, that after 15 years when that bad boy returns to the town as a widower with a 15 year old daughter, those feelings come back with a vengeance. Liam’s life has changed as he finds himself a single dad, when his wife dies of Leukemia and this predicament makes him suffer from panic attacks. When by accident they find themselves stuck in an elevator, he starts getting one of these attacks, but to Posey he seems to be having a heart attack instead. Trying to resuscitate him, she cracks one of his ribs and on her way to take him home from the hospital, the medication makes him start talking about himself and he kisses her. As we become the spectators of this romantic relationship in progress, we are given an inside look of their true selves from both perspectives and made entertaining and funny by the supporting witty characters, including her huge dog.
This is a fresh, funny and sweet contemporary romance with not so perfect characters, great read for all ages.
