Review

David Rochester is perfectly content just keeping to himself. He’s a bit reserved, and maybe even closed off, but that works for him. Erik Shriver, an employee at David’s family’s tree farm, seems exactly the opposite. He’s outgoing and talkative, and there’s something about Erik that just gets right under David’s skin. This isn’t so bad on it’s own, but when David’s sister notices the effect Erik has on him, the whole family decides to play matchmaker. Even as David starts to reluctantly wear down and give in, he knows it’s unlikely this could amount to anything. Both David and Erik have a fair amount of baggage–albeit different kinds–and it’s hard to build a relationship when there’s so much of it there’s no room for the two people involved.

The story of David and Erik is definitely a charming one. These two just can’t help but get in their own way, even after they start to admit there might be an attraction between them. David’s meddling family isn’t nearly as scheming as David makes them out to be, and the supporting cast of characters serve as such a great support system for them both. If you’re looking for something sweet with a dash of angst, this is it.
