Melodie Starkey spins a wonderful tale of two sweethearts who meet in high school, and leap into the adult world sooner than they'd expected after their first intimate encounter.

Megan is an honors student without any real friends, and has never had a boyfriend. Friends are hard to come by when you've advanced two grades ahead, and you're the only sixteen-year-old senior. Top that off with a mother who promises boys are an evil nemesis who shouldn't coexist on the same planet. How on this earth would she ever be able to go out on a date?

Christopher Eaton wears wrinkly clothes and is infamously late to class, but the first time Megan sees him, the crush is on! When he catches her staring at him, and he smiles, the heat is on! By the end of the week, Megan knows all of his classes, what kind of car he drives and that he doesn't have a girlfriend. She also knows she's going to marry him someday. But she'd die if he ever spoke to her!

Imagine Megan's shock when Christopher asks her to come to his house to study. Her shock is even greater when she learns the place they arrive at is his home, and not a hotel.

As their relationship develops, and they both find warmth and solace in each other, problems arise. How will Megan break the news to her mother that the friend she's been staying the night with isn't a female? Worse yet, she'd eventually have to tell her mother she's pregnant.

When the truth comes out, it's disasterous. Megan's mom explodes in the worst kind of way. We learn why Megan finds so much comfort at the Eaton house and why Christopher is so attached to Megan. Their story not only takes us through their happy moments, but the many troubles they are faced with throughout their early adult life. Though circumstances threaten to tear them apart, they struggle to mend broken hearts and hold on to the love they have for one another.

There's so much more than what I've shared. There are bittersweet moments, events that will peeve you off, down to their endearing children and the foster kids they take in.

I can truly say I loved this story! And I'm definitely going to jump into the second book, Sons of Eaton House. ( )
