I Look at You and Smile
by Janine Caroline
How do you deal with a broken heart when you find out your live in boyfriend is a cheater? For Jess, she moves away so she will be far enough away where she does not have to worry about run ins with him. She distrusts men and their ability to be faithful.
Jess is running away from her heartbreak. Soon upon moving in she has an awkward first meeting with her neighbor. She is curious about him, but wants to keep her distance. As time progresses and a friendship builds, the story takes off.
Ethan, the neighbor, has his own personal struggles. He is barely keeping his head above water when he meets Jess. He is not looking for anything romantic.
Without giving too much away, there was a twist in the story I did not see coming. It made for a nice surprise because the way the story was going I thought I knew exactly what was happening and was getting disappointed with the predictability.
This was a sweet friends to lovers story. A 🌟🌟🌟1/2 star read.
