The perfect couple.
Nicole Laramie and Chase Pennington would forever be called that in their home town of Rider Springs. Chase’s grandmother, Evelyn, thought her neighbors’ only daughter and her grandson were made for each other ever since the two of them were kids.
When Chase climbed a tree, Nicole climbed it higher.
When Nicole fell from her ten-speed and skinned her knee, Chase carried her home.
And when Chase took the field for Little League, Nicole cheered the loudest.
Until they were strangers.
While Chase climbed the social ladder in high school, Nicole climbed the academic one. Two best friends became enemies. And when the senior class voted them MOST PERFECT COUPLE in the yearbook, it was meant as a joke.
Only Evelyn, she never thought it was funny. She thought it was fate. And she was willing to wait 10 years just to prove she was right.
Your first love. Butterflies, tingles when your fingers touch, wring your first name with his last over and over on your notebooks while you dream of your future together. That’s what I think about when remembering my first live.
Nicole Laramie loved Chase Pennington and they spent much of their young life inseparable.
Then high school happened and Chase’s popularity took off. Nicole and her pocket protector got left behind.
The story that follows is one that you’ll devour. Although it’s a novella, it gave me all the feels and I didn’t want it to end.
Ginger Scott is one of my favorite authors for a reason—she never fails to deliver a story with characters I fall in love with and storylines that have you glued to the pages.
About Ginger Scott
A sucker for a good romance, Ginger’s other passion is sports, and she often blends the two in her stories. (She’s also a sucker for a hot quarterback, catcher, pitcher, point guard…the list goes on.) Ginger has been writing and editing for newspapers, magazines and blogs for pretty much ever. She has told the stories of Olympians, politicians, actors, scientists, cowboys, criminals and towns. For more on her and her work, visit her website at http://www.littlemisswrite.com.
When she’s not writing, the odds are high that she’s somewhere near a baseball diamond, either watching her son field pop flies like Bryce Harper or cheering on her favorite baseball team, the Arizona Diamondbacks. Ginger lives in Arizona and is married to her college sweetheart whom she met at ASU (fork ’em, Devils).
