A summer to remember...

When Cici Johnson falls for the charms of American big shot Rich Maguire, their drunken one night stand results in an unexpected pregnancy. Rich wants nothing to do with the baby or Cici, but she's determined to give their child the love of two parents on her own.

Jason Hooper's spent his whole life wondering what family really means. In and out of the foster care system, he never gets too close to anyone; just in case they walk away. But then he meets Cici and he feels as if he's finally home. For both of them, the summer they share at The Candied Apple Cafe couldn't be sweeter.

If only he'll let his guard down, Hoop's own happy-ever-after might not be make-believe anymore...

This was a fun story.
Cici ends up pregnant after a drunken one night stand with someone who wants absolutely nothing to do with her or the baby. Jason Hooper (Hoop) has issues with commitment and attachment due to being raised in the foster care system. They had chemistry, but Hoop's fear of commitment was pushing Cici away.
There was plenty of tension between the two as they worked to figure out if they could be friends, or if a relationship was possible with his fears and her pregnant with another man's child.
Both Cici and Hoop were great characters and good people. It was an emotional progression as they figured out their relationship. ~ Jean via goodreads
