A beautiful love story set in small-town America filled with layers of love. I devoured this story and then reread some of my favorite parts as soon as I finished it. Devlyn has been there for Garrett for eighteen years. She's been in love with him since she was five. Garrett sees Devlyn as DD. His friend from down the street. A new girl comes into town and delivers his first crush. When she shows up pregnant on his doorstep, he becomes a seventeen-year-old dad in a small town where most shun him. His crush leaves him and his baby daughter before they're released from the hospital. And at first, DD is his only friend. Eighteen years later, she owns the biscuit shop across the street from his hardware store. She's still his best friend, and she's an important person in his daughter's life. During Mia's valedictorian speech, she begs for someone to date her Dad. The video goes viral, and women pour forth. He agrees to three dates. But, something happens along the way. He opens his consciousness up to dating, something he closed off in his quest to be everything for Mia, and once he does, he SEES Devlyn.
