Equal parts swoonworthy romance and deeply affecting family drama, this debut novel about the boy next door turned super hot bad boy will have readers hooked from the very first kiss.

After his father''s stroke, Max Holden isn''t himself. As his long-time friend, Jillian Eldridge only wants to help, but she doesn''t know how. When Max climbs through her window one night, Jill knows she shouldn''t let him kiss her. But she can''t resist, and when they''re caught in the act by her dad, Jill swears it''ll never happen again. Because kissing Max Holden is a terrible idea.

With a new baby sibling on the way, her parents fighting all the time, and her dream of culinary school suddenly up in the air, Jill starts spending more and more time with Max. And even though her father disapproves and Max still has a girlfriend, not kissing Max is easier said than done. Will Jill follow her heart, and allow their friendship to blossom into something more, or will she listen to her head and stop kissing Max Holden once and for all?
