Stratton English is a little shy and awkward with woman, some might even call him blunt, but when he meets his new neighbor Amy he is taken with her right away and despite his awkward start with her she give him a second chance. The only problem is Amy is taken and if that isn't bad enough with a family enemy for Stratton.
For two long years Stratton waits for Amy to realize the man she is with is just plan bad for her. While he waits no other woman will do for him...until Valeria.
Val's best friend Emily is marrying Stratton's brother Barrett. When Val meets Barrett's brother she falls quickly. They are perfect for each other and Stratton seem to totally agree, until he never refuses her invitation for date and then never calls her again.
Stratton can't believe that he could be attracted to Val when he's so in love with Amy or is he? Through mixed feelings Val and Stratton try to figure out their feelings and what the future might hold.
Stratton is definitely a man who where his heart on his sleeve, but Val is perfect for his personality. I love that she come from a loud Italian family and her personality is so colorful. It is exactly what is needed to match Stratton's serious savior tone. I also liked that their relationship doesn't just happen and Stratton needs to work out his relationship with Amy first. This book gets a 5 Heart rating.
