A new job, a move to a small town, and it takes less than ten seconds to get hung up on the delicious single dad wearing gray sweatpants.
In my defense, he has the whole… package.
He’s fun and generous, kind and intelligent. He also agrees to help me coach the new youth basketball team. Does it matter that he’s clueless about the game? Apparently not, since I’m keen to spend as much time with him as possible.
Will Evans is a little older, no doubt a lot wiser, and he’s also distracting in the best possible way.
But there’s something holding us back. It’s not our chemistry, as together we are combustible. Which means that, like me, Will’s not fully opening up. But you know what they say about secrets. They can get in the way of happiness, and if we’re not careful, they’re going to sneak up on us and destroy any possibility of a future we may have together.
With the support of our busybody neighbors, the cheers of the youth basketball team, and the unwavering conviction that we’re meant to be together, we’re reminded that true happiness lies in embracing our vulnerabilities and daring to love with our whole selves is always worth the risk.
