Drake and Serena were introduced in the previous books and from the moment I met them they intrigued me. Here we have two friends who did almost everything together, but we’re not a couple. However, their chemistry was undeniable, and I waited with eager anticipation for their story.
Drake and Serena loved each other as teenagers and nothing has dulled their feelings. Serena would give anything for Drake to acknowledge her as more than a friend, but no matter what she did he kept her in the friend zone. That was until she decided to accept a job offer in Boston, which would allow her further advancement in her interior design profession.
Drake’s profound desire is to see Serena succeed in career dreams and refused to stand in her way, even if it meant denying his feelings. When he realised pursuing her dreams meant her moving away indefinitely, he knew he had to make his feelings known.
I loved both characters, although sometimes their actions frustrated the back out of me, especially Drake.
Serena is a fighter. She had it rough growing up, but she fought her way through the trials to become the woman she is today, down to earth, independent and a survivor. Drake is adorable, selfless and caring.
This was evident from the way he treated his family, friends and most of all Serena.
Their relationship developed quickly, but challenges abound. The challenge of distance being the main one followed by her job. Where there’s a will there’s a way, and these two were the epitome
of this adage. Their determination to make their relationship succeed, amidst the frustrations was a testament to their commitment to each other.
I knew these two would have their happily ever after. There was no doubt at all, but what had me on edge was discovering the steps they would take to overcome the challenges they faced. In the end, it all worked out and I could not be more pleased with the outcome.
met all my expectations and left me with a happy feeling. This is a perfect story for the summer while relaxing on the beach.
Fall in love at Bayside, where sandy beaches, good friends, and true love come together in the sweet small towns of Cape Cod.
