Kaden hated tardy people, but when he saw Brent, he knew he would forgive the man anything. Especially after the kiss. Brent didn't want to get married. He didn't want wife. But his mother expected it. She had even picked out his wife, Savannah, and had forced his hand at making him propose and when. If he didn't pick out the ring, she would. After a break down in Axl's store one day, Brent decided it was time to be who he was and take what he wanted. He wanted Kaden. Brent took the step he needed to get where wanted, in Kaden's arm. But it wasn't meant to be. Savannah dropped some very unwanted news in his lap, making Brent give up the happiness he had finally taken for himself and Kaden. Can the Cedar Fall gang help the torn apart lovers get back together again or is all lost?

After one particularly moment, Eddie became the town hero and Axl fell harder, determined to make sure Eddie was surer in his own skin.

By far one of my favorite books in this series. This is where we see the first nine couples get married in the quaint little church in Cedar Falls NC. Each couple had their moments through out this book. The friends all had their times together. And Jesse, oh my, Jesse had his with the bachelor party. I don't want to give anymore away, but don't be surprised if this one causes you to tear up a bit.

Who doesn't like ice cream? And who doesn't love someone that is just a little bit of a klutz? Taden moved to Cedar Falls to get away from the big city and do something he had enjoyed in his youth. Taden and Will have a very auspicious beginning. Taden rescues Will from a very unfortunate event that Will feels he deserves no matter what. But Taden knows that isn't so. From his first day of working for Taden, Will couldn't hide his klutzy-ness. Will is sure he'll be fired. But Taden sees something in Will that draws him. Taden needs Will like his next breath, but he also needs Will to learn to breath and spread his wings. Taden will be there to catch him and help him fly with their friends to watch.

Stone and Griff have quite the past. When a costume party throws them together, sparks fly and old hurts are brought to the forefront again. Cedar Fall friends being the Cedar Falls friend that they are, they do everything they can in their power to bring the two ex-lovers together again. Griff never thought he could forgive Stone for what he did. Stone never thought he could forgive himself. But with a little interference from some friends, maybe the two could learn that maybe never isn't never.
