Description from the publisher:
Edwin Santora is the kind of man every woman wants to be “friends” with.
He was Abigail’s first love, the love of her life, but when the devastatingly handsome Edwin admitted he just wasn’t ready to settle down and have kids, Abigail was left back at ground zero surrounded by the remnants of her shattered heart. Convinced that he can win Abigail back, he bides his time and waits for his chance to reclaim her body and her heart.

Cameron Clarke is what dreams are made of.
He was the man of Abigail’s dreams and she was smitten. She hadn’t actually expected that he would fall for her, but he did; which only makes the clean-up that much messier after he drops a bomb that shocks everyone. Lost without her, and with his motherless little girl’s broken heart on the line, Cameron’s determined to stop Edwin from stealing his future; but is it too late for him?

Torn between these two men who stand to give her everything she ever wanted, who will Abigail choose?

Do you still need that time to think; or are you going to tell me what's really going on?"

It felt like a rock went rolling down my windpipe.  I couldn't manage a breath let alone a word.

"I can take a hint.  I'll leave it alone for now,” Edwin said, with a smirk.  “But I'm setting a deadline of tomorrow.  I'm not letting you worry away your entire vacation.  If you don't tell me before supper tomorrow night, I'll tickle it out of you.”

Edwin jumped on top of me and gave me a taste of his tickle torture (spelling edited).  I felt my voice return as I began to scream with laughter.

"Okay, okay.  Please stop.  Eddie!"  I could see it in his eyes that he enjoyed listening to my pleas, but he stopped after one last tickle.

He growled and his dark aqua eyes hooked onto mine.  "I love when you scream my name."


Ms. Simpson has created a beautiful ending to this trilogy.  Some won, some lost, and some were left with fates not yet decided. I do hope she will continue to write, but I still suggest she employ an editor/consultant. 

Did the right guys get the right girls?  That’s for you to decide.  Let’s not forget there are many more gorgeous men still up for grabs.  If we find one over fifty, I call first dibs!

 I have excused the grammar difficulties, except for the one about “less people.”  The math teacher in me must insist that be changed to “fewer people.”
