Publisher's Summary

A sexy and emotional Amazon Top 10 best seller from Ella James, USA Today best-selling author   

The boy next door. That's what he was. Dash Frasier - my hero from the day we met, when I was six and he was nine. His sister was my best friend, the three of us one happy crew. Then one sweaty summer night changed everything.  

No one understood me like Dash. No one made me feel so loved. That's why, when he skipped town, it wrecked me. Now I'm older. Wiser. I've just snagged my dream job, writing at a film studio. The lead animator on my project? You guessed it.  

He's not the boy next door. Not anymore.  

I'm guarding my heart this time.  

But Dash has secrets that could break us both.

Better than the first

Dash and Emilia have always been secretly in love with each other but Dash is the older brother to Em's best friend, kind of typical. But the actual story of the two of them is a little heartbreakingly beautiful (sounds a little corny) but true. Em liked Dash from the first time he saved her from drowning, she was 7 and he was 10. The became neighbors and friends. Dash breaks Em's heart when he goes away to college because he doesn't stay in contact with her. When he comes home on break they spend the night together just before her 16th birthday and he promised to stay a few more days to be with her, but he suddenly leaves with no word, this would make heartbreak #2. They come across each other again because Em becomes an intern unknowingly at a company he works at. What Emilia doesn't know is the secret Dash has been keeping from her, the real reason he has stayed away, she will find out and it will all make sense and you'll fall in love with Dash.

Not your typical boy next door.

What a tragically beautiful love story. Its heart breaking at times and definitely has the ability to cause intense emotional reaction. I loved the main characters and it was easy to share in their emotional turmoil and enjoy their love story. The narrators did an amazing job telling the story. I highly recommend this story.
