Book/Novel Title: The One I’m With
I guess I dont see you as a woman. He laughed. No, I know youre a woman! But I still think of you as the peanut tagging along behind, the little girl whose hair got caught in her bike chain and I had to yank it free. I still remember you looking up at me, asking me not to tell your mom. Thats what you are to me, Peanut
And therein lies the problem. Maybe Brooks and Lanie just have too much history for there to be anything more between them. Maybe theres just too big a jump from old friendship to new love, despite what Lanies heart wants. After all, he has seen her in her diapers (and less), and saved her from jellyfish stings, broken bones, wayward bike chains, and more over all the years theyve known each other.
The one thing Brooks couldnt save her from was a lot of misery at the school they both attended, the school where Lanie now works as a kindergarten teacher. And theres some tough stuff going on there as well, with students, and with some parents who come back from the past to make Lanies life more than a little challenging. Not to mention her mother a whole other story!
Lanie has to get it togetherwith her job, her family, and her love life. And when she does, maybe that will include the guy shes fantasized about her whole life, and maybe hell be able to see her as the woman she is, rather than the girl she was! **
