I read this book several year ago and it is the story that got me hooked on the Devereaux/Cochran series.
Marcus fell in love with Vera when was 18 yrs old and he could believe she was 10 years older than him. As the year go by, Vera and Marcus become best friends. Everybody knows that they love each other. Marcus escorts Vera to an award banquet and kisses her. This is the beginning of their romance, but Vera has issues.

With each book I fall more in love with this series and these families. Marcus and Vera loved each other for a long time and it was precious to have them finally speak the words out loud and to each other. It was incredibly sad about Vera's first husband passing but Marcus was there for her through the whole ordeal making his love for her clear to everyone but them. Looking forward to reading the next installment of the series.

Tragedy hits and makes one life change and another evolve to it true potential. Love has been at the door for far to long it only takes a cast and crew of family and friends to make it all happen.

Vera and Marcus get a chance that many will never take. Age is nothing but a number and that is evident in the pursuit that follows the friendship to love.

It was great to see more of this particular series.
Great series! Marcus has loved his best friend, Vera, since he was 18 years old. The problem: Vera is 40 years old, ten years older than Marcus and she feels she is too old for him. Well as the 30 year old CEO of the Deveraux Group, Marcus didn't get where he is by taking no for an answer. Marcus is willing to do whatever is necessary to convince Vera they belong together!
