**My hands wrap around his neck and I tangle my fingers in his soft, brown hair and I pull him down, deepening the kiss, never wanting him to let go. Wow, this boy can kiss. But soon, he pulls away. His blue eyes dart between my brown ones, and we both stand completely still. "Um," I try to speak. "Yeah," he says. All of a sudden, he does a total Eli thing. He smirks. "What?" I ask. "You're still blushing." **Brooke Taylor is the girl that has it all. Well, everything except a mother. She died of breast cancer three years ago, leaving only Brooke, her father, and her brother who is also her best friend, Zeke. It's summer vacation, and Brooke loves it. Except the part where Zeke is leaving to travel the world for a year. But when Brooke's car malfunctions on the way to the grocery store, she has to call for someone to help her. This is where she meets Eli. He's the typical brown haired, amazingly blue eyed boy that Brooke thinks is a total player. Will Eli change her mind? Let's hope. Because Brooke is the type of girl who doesn't believe in love. And Eli is determined to change this. But just when Brooke thinks that she is falling for this boy, Eli shares a secret with her that changes everything. Will she have the strength to let him go?
