From the moment I see her, I’m hooked. There’s just something about Crosby that has me eager to know her. One thing’s for sure, I can’t stay away from the new kindergarten teacher with the kind smile and secrets in her brown eyes.
There’s no hiding in a small town, and she’s suddenly everywhere. My family loves her, my niece won’t stop talking about her, and I…well, I just want to make her mine.
Crosby is everything I didn’t know I was doing looking for, but the wall she keeps up makes it impossible to love her the way I want to. I have to figure out how to tear it down, and fast— because she’s not so sure she’s sticking around, and I’m not prepared to let her walk away from Willow River… or me.
Another new town, another new school. But this time I’m not the struggling new kid; I’m the teacher. It’s hard to let go of my past, when it refuses to let go of me. I live in a constant state of unease, never knowing what the future holds. Especially when it comes to love.
Rushton isn’t like other guys. He’s open and honest. What you see is what you get. He’s made his intentions very clear. But I’m afraid getting involved only spells heartbreak for both of us. If growing up in foster care taught me anything, it’s not to get too close and definitely don’t get comfortable.
So, I learned to be good at goodbye. But for the first time in my life, I’ve found a place I want to put down roots. Rushton, his family, Willow River, my students—they all make me wish for once that I could stay. That we could… stay together.

Another Kincaid falls in love. Rushton was not looking for it but when he met newcomer Crosby, it just clicked. And he definitely loves harder.
The man was determined to show her how they fit so beautifully and naturally together, with patience and certitude. He could count on his family and sisters-in-law and especially his little niece, Blakely.
I appreciated Rusthon’s character who we watched falling in love on the spot with a woman who had a guarded heart and was reserved. Crosby arrived in this small town and quickly fell for this charming and lovely town, the Kindcaid family and mostly for Rushton who managed to break her walls step by step, by loving harder.
I enjoyed reading each story and this one is on exception. Once again, the Kincaid family won me over, a story with plenty of emotions, sweet, funny with endearing characters.
Can’t wait for the next brother to fall in love and to share his story!
