Summary (cr: goodreads)

Ellie Carmichael had a crush on Adam Sutherland, her brother, Braden’s, best friend, for years, and although Adam treated her with proprietary concern he made it clear he thought of her only as a little sister. 

Over the years, as Ellie’s crush develops into love, her romantic idealism makes it difficult for her to move on. To make matters worse, as she’s gotten older, Adam’s attitude has changed toward her. His affection for her is now joined by attraction, but his loyalty to Braden, and his fear of losing the only family he has, stops him from claiming Ellie the way she wishes he would. 

But one night his attraction is put to the test, and as much as Adam would like things to remain the same everything changes between them in a simple brush of the lips. 

Soon lust, love, jealousy and heartbreak combine to force change upon their relationship… and Adam discovers the hard way that life is too damn short to spend it on regret.

My Review: (also in goodreads)

After Brandon and Joss, Adam and Ellie is my fave team. At some point I even thought that I liked them better than Brandon and Joss especially when Joss went emo. Ellie is such a big bundle of energy and it was amusing to see her and Adam and their sexual tension. This short story happens after the events where the both of them live together and she is contemplating on giving Joss her love story for her next writing project. It then revolves on Adam and Ellie reminiscing their progress through her diaries. I gave this a pretty good rating for a short story mainly because I loved the Adam-Ellie tandem and I loved that the author gave them the spotlight they deserve.

Till the next read...
