"I've loved you so long, I can't remember what it's like to not love you. And I will go to my grave loving you. You're my everything."
Abigale and Zach grew up together in front of the camera in Hollywood. Now they are adults; they have left it all behind them. Living their lives together but separately. Zach has loved Abigale for what feels like forever. Abigale loves her best friend, and she knows that she can always count on him.
After Abigale's fiance leaves her for "not being true to herself," she sets out to chuck planning her life, and just live life. One thing she wants is to have a torrid affair. Once she sets her mind to it, the only person she can see in her bed is Zach. She struggles with losing her friendship and possibly finding happiness. Zach couldn't be more ready to risk his friendship to finally have the woman he has loved for most of his life.
I will be honest. When I first began reading this book, I groaned. Realizing I was reading yet another unrequited love story, I was not anticipating it. I was greatly rewarded with love at its height. Sure there was the back and forth with denying love and refusing to love. However, there is reality and a little drama in there. This book is both typical and untypical of the usually unrequited love story. I found myself begging for Abigale to finally open her eyes to what has always been standing right in front of her. Zach's character coulnd't have been anymore dreamy. He knew what he wanted, and he was willing to stand by and wait for what he wanted, even if it took forever.
"She never seemed to notice that I was staring at her when she walked into the room."
