Life has been a constant challenge for Jake Lewis. Left paralyzed emotionally and physically by a car accident, which killed his parents when he was just twelve years old, Jake struggles to be happy. His best friends, Rick Welsh and Samantha Andrews, are a couple who fight as passionately as they make up. This puts Jake in an awkward position. Three friends who are as close as can be. Rick Welsh, the hotshot basketball player, who hopes to leave college and go pro. Samantha Andrews, the brainiac, blessed with common sense and beauty. Jake Lewis, the crippled virgin, who believes no girl could love a damaged guy with a disability. In despair, these friends share a moment that will forever change their lives. Life is messy. Love is complicated. True love doesn’t always come wrapped in a pretty package with a bow on top. Is it possible that the friend you never had sexual feelings for is the person who will touch your soul like no other?

what i thoughtVery quick and cute read. Read this in like an hour or so! Because this was such a quick read, not much development I felt happened. But, nonetheless I very much enjoyed this story!

Jake, our main character was such a sweetheart and I couldn’t help the little crush that developed. After permanently damaging his leg, he has always had difficulty with it. He believed he couldn’t be loved because of his legs and that girls wouldn’t like him..

This completely broke my heart. Again, it was hard not to fall for him. After losing so much in his life, he’s pretty much given up.

I’d recommend to those wanting something quick and something heart-felt. I believe this would be perfect for it.
