How Long I’ve Loved You

About The Book

A vulnerable moment could be the beginning they’ve been waiting for…

For as long as she can remember, Oakley Marshall has been in love with River Childers. She’s flirted with him. She’s been coy. She’s even thrown herself at him. All to no avail. Despite her friends saying that he’s interested, she’s come to the conclusion that it’s just not meant to be – with River or anyone else. The small town of Fog’s Edge doesn’t offer much in the way of men and online dating hasn’t resulted in even the smallest glimmer of a promising match. Then River walks into her diner and says the most hurtful words a woman could hear.

River hasn’t been able to look at another woman since he set eyes on Oakley their senior year in high school. Sure, they’d gone to school together since kindergarten, but something about her caught his attention that year and no one else could possibly live up to her utter perfection. That’s the problem – she’s too good for him and he knows it. She has her life together, makes a good living, owns her own business, and pretty much helps run their small town. How’s a man going to compete with all that?

Things change when Oakley’s life is in danger and River sets out to rescue her. But spending time secluded in the woods might not be the smartest move – then again, maybe it’s just what they need to push them in the right direction.
