Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
All Ellie wants is to have a normal life. She pictures a white picket fence, a stable and loyal husband, and eventually a couple of kids. She doesn’t date just anybody. She has relationships with guys like Ward Cleaver. Her best friend Spencer, on the other hand, is famous for being quite the opposite. That’s why they’ll always be ‘just friends.’ But maybe when it comes to love, what looks good on paper just isn't good enough... Spencer knows what Ellie wants for herself. In fact, he thinks she deserves every bit of it. She sure as hell deserves more than what he can offer her. But as he gets ready to leave for Marine Corps Recruit Training, he starts to think about exactly what he’ll be leaving behind. As the weeks of training drag on, he can't help but think that if it weren't for the shadows of his past, he would make her his future.

It may have been a huge mistake to try to make it more than friendship, but he was right about us being family. And the truth was, I was just as lost without him as he was without me. “By the way, what did you mean when you told Eric that Spencer had
paused when I saw Spencer standing in the foyer. I hadn’t seen him since the night of the wedding, and I had no idea what to do now that I wasn’t seeing Eric anymore. I wasn’t even sure if I wanted to tell him that yet. I still needed time to figure everything out. There were so many thoughts bouncing around in my mind at any given second that I was only confusing myself. No need to drag him down the rabbit hole with me until I was sure about what I wanted. “Are you just going to stand there?”
showy, so the truck was perfect. To my shock and excitement, my dad even gave me a hefty down payment. He said it was a belated graduation present. I couldn’t be more grateful, since it wasn’t just about the money. It was the thought behind it. We calculated that it would take me about a year to pay the rest of it off with decently low payments, so by the time we were leaving the car lot I was grinning from ear to ear. When I pulled up to Mills’ house, I honked the horn a few times. They came

I felt the crinkle of a wrapper and paused, reaching into the pocket to reveal a condom. I held it in two fingers and brought it between us so that he could see it. “Somebody was prepared for this.” I teased, waving the condom. Spencer laughed, and the motion was jarring with his thigh pressed snuggly between my legs. “Somebody had to be. I
