This is Jason and Sam's story. Jason and Sam have been friends for a long time. The story begins with Sam and her brother and his friends getting into a verbal fight on the front lawn. Hearing all the yelling, Jason comes up to defend Sam against all the guys. And after hanging out with Sam, Jason starts to see her as more than "the girl next door". And Sam starts to see him as more than a friend. I loved the laid back feeling between Jason and Sam. And the chemistry between them is strong. I highly recommend reading this book.
