Ian Ocean is home after two years in the Peace Corps, and is ready to start his adult life.
Ellis Noble is divorced, an artist, and hasn’t had a man turn her head for years, until she meets Ian. Open, friendly, and an artist himself, Ian seems to understand the ins and outs of her life with ease.
But attraction is rarely so simple.
Not only is Ian much younger than Ellis, but he’s also the son of her neighbor and best friend.
After only a few dates with Ellis, Ian finds himself unable to stop thinking about her. He wasn’t planning on jumping into anything serious, but his heart tells him otherwise.
When Ellis sees the contrast between the messiness of her life, and the simplicity of Ian’s, coupled with her best friend suggestion that Ellis should back off, she puts as much distance between them as she can.
Now Ian is afraid that no matter how much he wants her, he might never be part of Ellis’ world. But then, he might not give up so easily…
