A Love Fulfilled

Jess​ ​has​ ​only​ ​been​ ​here​ ​for​ ​two​ ​and​ ​a​ ​half​ ​weeks​ ​and​ ​my​ ​resolve​ ​is​ ​already starting​ ​to​ ​thin.​ ​​ ​I​ ​thought​ ​I​ ​would​ ​be​ ​able​ ​to​ ​do​ ​this.​ ​​ ​It​ ​was​ ​a​ ​simple​ ​plan.​ ​​ ​Jess​ ​would move​ ​in.​ ​​ ​We​ ​would​ ​still​ ​hang​ ​out​ ​like​ ​always.​ ​​ ​She​ ​would​ ​go​ ​about​ ​her​ ​normal​ ​activities and​ ​I’d​ ​do​ ​the​ ​same.​ ​​ ​Only,​ ​plans​ ​aren’t​ ​quite​ ​working​ ​out​ ​that​ ​way.​ ​​ ​We​ ​no​ ​longer​ ​have school​ ​and​ ​we​ ​don’t​ ​start​ ​work​ ​until​ ​the​ ​end​ ​of​ ​summer.​ ​​ ​As​ ​a​ ​result​ ​of​ ​these​ ​two​ ​things, we​ ​spend​ ​so​ ​much​ ​more​ ​time​ ​together​ ​now​ ​than​ ​before. From​ ​the​ ​moment​ ​she​ ​stepped​ ​through​ ​the​ ​doors​ ​of​ ​this​ ​apartment,​ ​it​ ​was​ ​over. Who​ ​would’ve​ ​thought​ ​that​ ​going​ ​over​ ​house​ ​rules​ ​would​ ​be​ ​so​ ​hard​ ​and​ ​stimulating.​ ​​ ​I was​ ​fine​ ​up​ ​until​ ​the​ ​moment​ ​she​ ​touched​ ​my​ ​thigh.​ ​​ ​Sure​ ​she’s​ ​touched​ ​me​ ​before;​ ​but it​ ​was​ ​always​ ​so​ ​innocent,​ ​playful​ ​​and ​from​ ​the​ ​waist​ ​up.​ ​​ ​This​ ​particular​ ​touch, although​ ​innocent​ ​to​ ​her,​ ​was​ ​anything​ ​but​ ​for​ ​me.​ ​​ ​I​ ​have​ ​never​ ​in​ ​my​ ​lifetime,​ ​been​ ​so turned​ ​on​ ​by​ ​the​ ​mere​ ​touch​ ​of​ ​her​ ​hand;​ ​or​ ​anyone​ ​else’s​ ​hands.​ ​​ ​She​ ​doesn’t​ ​know​ ​it, but​ ​that​ ​touch​ ​sparked​ ​something​ ​in​ ​me​ ​that​ ​I’ve​ ​been​ ​holding​ ​back​ ​for​ ​years. She​ ​struts​ ​around​ ​here​ ​in​ ​her​ ​tiny​ ​shorts​ ​and​ ​tank​ ​tops​ ​at​ ​night;​ ​those​ ​legs​ ​of​ ​hers sweeping​ ​out​ ​from​ ​beneath​ ​them.​ ​​ ​I​ ​try​ ​to​ ​be​ ​the​ ​respectful​ ​best​ ​friend.​ ​​ ​I​ ​pretend​ ​I​ ​don’t notice,​ ​but​ ​a​ ​guy​ ​can​ ​only​ ​take​ ​so​ ​much.​ ​​ ​I’m​ ​noticing​ ​things​ ​about​ ​her​ ​I’ve​ ​never​ ​noticed before.​ ​​ ​I​ ​thought​ ​I​ ​knew​ ​everything​ ​about​ ​her.​ ​​ ​I’m​ ​quickly​ ​finding​ ​out​ ​that​ ​there​ ​is​ ​so much​ ​more​ ​to​ ​Jess​ ​than​ ​I​ ​realized​ ​and​ ​I​ ​want​ ​to​ ​know​ ​it​ ​all.
I​ ​don’t​ ​think​ ​I​ ​can​ ​hold​ ​back​ ​any​ ​longer.​ ​​ ​Having​ ​her​ ​under​ ​the​ ​same​ ​roof​ ​with​ ​me day​ ​and​ ​night,​ ​it’s​ ​just​ ​a​ ​matter​ ​of​ ​time​ ​before​ ​I​ ​do​ ​something​ ​stupid​ ​to​ ​chase​ ​her​ ​away. So​ ​my​ ​heart​ ​has​ ​decided​ ​that​ ​instead​ ​of​ ​fighting​ ​what​ ​I​ ​feel​ ​for​ ​her,​ ​I’m​ ​going​ ​to​ ​win​ ​her over.​ ​​ ​There’s​ ​still​ ​our​ ​friendship​ ​that​ ​I​ ​have​ ​to​ ​consider.​ ​​ ​Which​ ​means​ ​I​ ​have​ ​to​ ​make​ ​a plan.​ ​​ ​I​ ​have​ ​to​ ​take​ ​this​ ​slow.​ ​​ ​I​ ​have​ ​to​ ​make​ ​sure​ ​she​ ​falls​ ​for​ ​me​ ​before​ ​she​ ​realizes how​ ​deeply​ ​I’ve​ ​fallen​ ​for​ ​her​ ​already.​ ​​ ​Slow​ ​and​ ​steady​ ​always​ ​wins​ ​the​ ​race​ ​right? That’s​ ​what​ ​I’m​ ​going​ ​for...the​ ​win.

A chance to get back a precious gift after a life-altering decision made in the past. A chance to explore true feelings after years of friendship and easy-going flirtation. Not everyone gets chances like these. Reading about how Jess and Ren make decisions, take risks and grow closer as these chances play out for them was a real joy. This is a great book for anyone who likes a sweet story of young love, of hope, and of fulfilling dreams.
