Summary (cr: goodreads)

Josh Kowalski is tired of holding down the fort—better known as the Northern Star Lodge—while his siblings are off living their dreams. Now that his oldest brother has returned to Whitford, Maine for good, Josh is free to chase some dreams of his own.

As the daughter of the lodge's longtime housekeeper, Katie Davis grew up alongside the Kowalski kids. Though she's always been "one of the guys", her feelings for Josh are anything but sisterly. And after a hot late-night encounter in the kitchen, it's clear Josh finally sees her as the woman she is.

Katie's been waiting years for Josh to notice her, but now that he has, she's afraid it's too late. Giving her heart to a man who can't wait to leave town is one sure way to have it broken. But Josh keeps coming up with excuses not to leave—could it be that everything he's ever wanted is closer than he could have imagined?

My Review: (also in goodreads)

Lookback: Exclusively Yours, Undeniably Yours, Yours To Keep, All He Ever Needed, All He Ever Desired

I could say that this would be my favorite Kowalski far. Okay fine, I'm sometimes partial to plots of unrequited love; not because I have a deep connection to it but because there are things that could be explored deeply if the story has that flow. Josh is dense to the fact that Katie, his best friend, whom he have known his whole life has been harboring feelings for him. That's how dense he could be. Katie the daughter of their adopted mother, since the Kowalski Northern Star Lodge family's parents has died, has always been in love with Josh and it seemed like he was the only one who couldn't see it. Everyone in town knows it like an open secret and even her mother is secretly plotting a matchmaking session for them. I love this story because Josh has always been the witty, humorous one in the bunch and the way the story revolves and matures where he is in the crossroads of finally getting his freedom from the lodge that has been a chain around his neck against his willingness to fight and stay for Katie is tastefully done; at least for me.

Till the next read...
