A Wall Street Journal bestseller!

His name is Royal, but he's no prince charming. He's not even a prince - though you could say I loved him once upon a time.

He was my older brother's best friend.

Growing up, he sat at our dinner table every Sunday, teased me mercilessly, and pretended I annoyed him.

When I was old enough, he took me on my first date.

Royal taught me how to drive. Escorted me to my junior prom. Gave me my first kiss…amongst other things. He was my first taste of toe-curling, all-consuming, can't-sleep love.

We had our whole lives ahead of us. There was never anyone else for me but him.

And then he disappeared. No letter. No explanation. Not even a goodbye.

My sisters and brother never forgave him, and my parents forbade me from speaking his name in our house ever again. For all intents and purposes, we were to pretend Royal Lockhart never existed.

I've spent the last seven years trying in vain to forget my first love, but just when I think I've finally moved on, guess who's back in town?

AUTHOR'S NOTE: This is a full-length, stand alone, older brother's best friend/unrequited love romance with a happily ever after and no cliffhanger. Enjoy! xoxo

    I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS BOOK!! I finished it within a day and a half. The ending was just the frosting of the cake and well played out. You know who got what he deserved. Sorry if that spoils anything. Read it to understand

    I rarely leave reviews but for this book I feel compelled to. Was this mind blowing or award winning? No. Was it a little predictable? Yes. It did leave me smiling and my heart feeling warm.

    Amazing book. Perfect amount of back and forth with both sides putting in effort and not just one sided. Couldn’t stop reading it!

    First time reading this author. I chose it because it was a free book. Sorry to say it wasn’t my type of book at all. A book filled with dirty words and sex. I will say I think it had the possibility of being a good story if the author had concentrated on just the story, but then I have come to realize SEX sells since so many authors are using it and so many readers are buying it. Sad.
